Take Part In The Adventure: Self-Guided Tour On Getting Rid Of Anxiety

Jun 26, 2008
When life seems to be overwhelming you and causing you tension and anxiety, you may not know which end is up. The need for anxiety relief has been with us for many years but perhaps never more so than in dealing with day to day life in today's rapidly changing world. The symptoms of anxiety, which can include such things as headaches, back pain, fatigue, shortness of breath, insomnia and an upset stomach, are also the symptoms of many common illnesses and so it's important when the symptoms arise to be sure that they are indeed the result of stress.

But, there are solutions that can help you feel more relaxed, in order for you to work through what is bothering you. Here are a few of them:

Whether it is from your significant other, a dear friend or a trained professional, there is something to be said for massage therapy. This will help you unwind and work on relieving all of the physical tension that has built up over time. While you are getting this special treatment, you can feel carefree and try to find that sense of inner peace. Anxiety can cause you to overwork the muscles and joints, often times clenching your fists or making your whole body feel tight and stressed. Getting rid of this will surely make you feel better physically, and the attention you're receiving will surely help mentally and emotionally.

Think Positive
Remarkably, it works. You may have to force yourself to do it if you are an overly cynical person, but think positively for just a few days, and you will find yourself not only more relaxed, but perhaps even more energetic.

Breathe in a sense of relief by choosing the right fragrance for you. You will be amazed at how your mind and body will respond positively to various scents in the air. When you use aromatherapy, the gentle smells will allow you to feel at ease, as something positive is triggered in the brain after you inhale the fragrance. You will feel comfortable in no time.

A Nice Soothing Bath
Nothing seems more pleasant to end a rough and nerve-wracking day more than a pleasantly warm bubble bath. Set aside twenty minutes to a half hour as time to just be alone and let the temperate waters relax you. Rest your eyes, or bring in a good book with you to take your mind off things that are really getting to you. Once you finish with this comforting bath, you may even feel relaxed enough to want to take a nap and sleep off the rest of that tension.

Just Relax
Try reading a book or magazine, going for a walk, exercising, or finding something that is productive. Stress and anxiety can tend to fester during periods of inactivity, as there is nothing to occupy the mind. Being productive not only takes your mind off of whatever you may be worrying about, but a feeling of accomplishment can help change your mood from one of anxiety to one of contentment.

Talk it Out
The most important thing to do when you are feeling overwhelmed is to tell someone. Whether it is a close friend or a professional, keeping anxious feelings bottled up does not make for a healthy person. Sharing your thoughts can help others relate to you better, or it can be good to say things aloud in order to find an appropriate solution. Either way, letting go of tension through verbal communication can prove to be a very healthy practice.

If you combine any number of these techniques, anxiety will be a thing of the past, and you'll be amazed at how much better your quality of life will be.
