Introducing a few tips that have helped ease anxiety in everyday life. Because if you’re like me, you’ve been there many times.
You are sitting in the waiting room and or just waiting somewhere. It starts right away. Your feet are starting to tremble nervously.
Your hands may start sweating, and your mouth may feel a little dry. Your thoughts are getting jumbled, and it’s hard to focus and be clear as usual.
Maybe you are taking an important test at school—the job interview. meeting with a doctor or dentist. A date you’re looking forward to, but at the same time, you’re afraid to make a fool of yourself. Whatever it is, it’s making you anxious.
Breathe to Reduce anxiety
If possible, sit in a quiet place. Breathe a little deeper than normal and do it with the stomach, not the chest.
Focus only on the air entering and exiting the nostrils for just a minute or two—nothing else.
It calms your mind and body.
And it will bring your devotion back to the present moment. It’s not about overthinking horrible future scenarios and bad memories from the past.
Get Good Knowledge
Brush off a cloud of uncertainty and vague fear by studying what you’re worried about.
By talking to someone who has done what you’re trying to do or wants to do, or by reading what they’ve written, you can build a more realistic roadmap with both good and bad aspects of how things might go.
And learn how to improve in areas that give you anxiety. For example, when you speak in public at work or school, do job interviews, or give presentations, research the best ways to get better and relieve tension.
Do Simple Training
I like to lift heavy weights for about half an hour when I’m worried, stressed or anxious. I feel my mind and body strength. It releases inner tension and relaxes me. Others go out to rush, walk or ride their bikes when they feel uneasy. You can find a way of exercise or do yoga that suits you, enjoy these benefits and relieve anxiety.
Focus on Other Things
Instead of thinking about what makes your current anxiety, simply turning your mind back may be more helpful.
Especially when you can’t control situations that cause anxiety, for example, future appointments with doctors or dentists.
So, for a while, turn your attention somewhere else and charge it with something positive.
Do somewhat that will take your mind out of situations that cause anxiety, even for a few hours.
After that recharge, you will probably feel better and become a better headspace, a higher energy level for processing and thinking about tense situations.
Change the Focus to What You can do Now
When you ask a question that makes you feel helpless, or things get worse and worse, you take away your power.
Empower yourself by asking yourself instead:
What is one of the little things I can do to improve this situation today?
Write down the question and brainstorm the answer for a few minutes. Then take action on one of the answers you find.
It doesn’t have to be a significant action. It’s just a tiny step. And when it’s done, take another one.
It forward makes you feel like you’re starting to regain control of your life, at least a little more confident, and in my experience, tends to reduce anxiety.
Ask Questions about Your Worries And Fears
Look at your past and ask yourself.
Have any of the situations I’ve been worried about in the past turned out to be an exaggeration, or have I found in my mind that I’m making mountains out of molehills?
Instead of letting them roam freely, ask questions about your fears and worries.
Put Emotions to Let it Go
Anxiety can be sticky and vague.
You don’t know exactly where it’s coming from or what’s causing it. So it can be hard to get rid of.
A slightly strange solution that worked well for me in such a situation is this:
If you feel negative, forgive and accept that feeling. Don’t try to keep it out. Don’t try to fight it.
Although many of us have learned to do these two things against negative emotions throughout our lives.
Instead, please put it in this time and observe your mind and body sensations without judging them.
If you put it in and observe for a few minutes, something great will happen.
First, it may feel painful and more intense.
Often to where it disappears. or you can let go without too much effort.
Because when you accept that feeling and accept it, you stop feeding it with more energy (like when you shut it out or tried hard to fight it).
Let it into the Light
When you keep something in you, your head can be an echo chamber that expands and doubles the anxiety and fear of the situation.
Talk to somebody close to you about the situation in front of you. Just paying attention to the person you listen to gives you a more rounded view of what’s going on.
Or we can help you regain power by having a small first plan on how to reduce anxiety about this situation by discussing it with two people and taking some action.
Stay in the Present Moment
Anxiety is often a fear of what you think will happen in the future.
One way to decrease that anxiety is to keep your attention as much as possible at the moment.
Perhaps you plan small ahead of time to help you, but choose to deal with situations that create anxiety when it happens.
Instead of spending hours every day imagining the future and fearing and creating monsters in your head.
At the beginning of this article, the breathing technique is one of the best techniques I had found to return to the current moment when I got lost in the future.
Another of my favourites you can try is this:
It takes 1-2 minutes and concentrates only on what is in front of you.
Or around you and on you. Look at what’s in front of you.
Listen to the sounds around you. Feel the fabric of the clothes. Feel the heat of the winter sun on your skin.
Remember: Tomorrow is a Brand New Day
This reminder is helpful when today or last week didn’t go very well.
Because tomorrow is a brand new day. The date on which it can be reopened.
You can take a further step towards what you want and perhaps a little more luck a day.
And if it becomes easier to understand that this difficult time is temporary and not permanent (although you may feel that way now).
