Anxiety: 5 No-Holds-Barred Techniques To Wiping It Out

Aug 5, 2008
We all get nervous at some point in our lives, but when it begins to take over our lives and affect daily activities, sleep and our overall health, it is time to take some action. Some anxiety is a normal part of life. In small quantities, stress is good -- it can motivate you and help you be more productive. However, too much stress, or a strong response to stress, is harmful.

When we do feel anxious, however, there is no need to head out to the most expensive spa in town, or take pill after pill to calm those nerves. The main thing from the time you wake up is to focus on the positives in your life, and not harp on every single thing that needs to get done. The more you focus on the big picture, it will feel overwhelming, and you will be so caught up in your anxiety that you will not get anything done at all. While it does take a great deal of effort to rid your life completely of anxiety, there are steps that you can take to ensure it does not affect your daily life.

Here are a few simple suggestions to relieve tension:

Find a Confidant
There is absolutely no point in harboring all of your anxiety within yourself. It is important to find a friend that you trust to understand where you are coming from. Sometimes all it takes is a kind ear so that we can vent from time to time what is making us tense.

Even if it is just taking a moment out of your day to center yourself, this is better than nothing. When the walls of life continue to close in around us, a good way to break out of that is by focusing your positive energy and taking some time for self-reflection.

Make Lists
Organizing your life will help you tackle a great portion of that anxiety that sometimes overwhelms you. It will do wonders if you write down things that you need to accomplish, or even make a list of all that is bothering you. Go through the lists, and check them off as you complete them or work through them. The victories will certainly detract from the anxiety.

"Me" Time
Set aside some moments where you can just be alone and have some quiet time all to yourself. It will be good to be away from some distractions, and just enjoy your own company. But the most important thing with taking time for yourself is to be able to truly relax and put your feet up once in awhile.

You know how you feel when you inhale particular smells. They can be really bad, or really good. The good scents have the power to make you feel much better, because they signal a certain reaction or memory within the brain. This will certainly help you to feel a sense of peace and calm, and will help make your anxiety a thing of the past.

Following this advice, while it will not rid you completely from anxiety, will certainly help you work through your problems. Tackle those anxious feelings head on and work toward a more relaxed you. Home is where the heart is, and there is no need to feel anxiety within those walls. Take a breath or two, and begin sorting through all of those negative feelings. So that you can head to bed feeling calm, cool and collected, and anxiety-free.
