As many of us know, anxiety disorders are very common around the world. It is defined as “a state of uneasiness and apprehension, as about future uncertainties”. Each person will deal with anxiety differently. Some of the methods may work for some but they may not work for others. Now here I want to share 5 ways on how I deal with my anxiety disorders problem and I call them my own anxiety therapy methods.
The first one would be meditation. Do not underestimate the power of meditation because it can be very relaxing. You need to focus on one’s inner-self and let the problems, uncertainties and fears slip out of focus, so that you can allow for a clearer solution to be found. Well, sometimes, simply stepping away from your problems and calming down can help you see solutions.
The second self anxiety therapy would be exercise. You need to do exercise at least three times a week. You know, exercise can be very invigorating. As anxiety can leave you feeling depressed and run-down, we have to exercise regularly to boost endorphins in your body, leaving you feeling refreshed, happier and less anxious.
Yoga is also a very good anxiety therapy method. It is a form of exercise that does not involve impact. Yoga concentrates more on fluid movements and stretches rather than high impact and vigorous exercise. The fluidity of yoga is very invigorating, yet it is relaxing and calming while still producing endorphins in your system.
The fourth method of anxiety therapy will is the easiest. All you need to do is to find someone to talk to. Sometimes, talking to someone about the things that are making you feel anxious can really help lighten the burden of the anxiety. But remember, you need to find someone that you trust to talk to. By speaking out your anxiety, you may find that you are less anxious.
The final method will be relaxing. Try to indulge in something that will relaxes you the most, some people will find taking a walk in the park relaxing, some will play some games, watching movie or simply listening to some soothing music. That way, you can allow your anxiety to pass by not focusing on it and instead enjoying your relaxing time. By detaching yourself from your problems and fears, even briefly, can help you cope with anxiety.
So with the five simple methods above, I hope you will be able to deal with your anxiety problems better. Be happy and stay healthy.
