Express Your Anxiety and Gain Control
Putting your experiences of anxiety into a new context, re-framing them, allows you to control them for better mental health. It’s as if you can turn down the volume by channeling that terrible anxiety through a body space.
So when you feel your anxiety, let out! Tell others, express your emotions.
Next time your anxiety creeps up on you, try expressing it to whomover you are with. Literally tell them. “My anxiety is really catching up to me.” Take a second and talk out your problems. You will be amazed and how effective this can be.
Try A Personal Trainer – Work Out Routinely
Did you know that when you exercise, your body produces substances called endorphins?
Endorphins are formed inside the body to help alleviate pain and spur on a feeling of well-being and relaxation. Endorphins have a similar chemical structure to morphine. The transmission of these natural chemicals can make you fall asleep faster, and may help in the reduction of high blood pressure.
If you are suffering from anxiety – you will want these!
I suggest getting the help of a personal trainer when you work out. Not simply because it is safe, but it gives you a person to talk to and couch you along through your workout process. A Certified personal trainer will be able to craft a specific workout plan for you, based on your needs. He or she can map out a daily/weekly routine that will focus on relieving your stress and daily anxiety.
