Anxiety Home Remedies That Really Help

Aug 17, 2007
Anxiety affects us all. Not one person on the planet is exempt from feeling anxiety sometimes. If you don't have extreme enough anxiety to visit a doctor, there are some simple things that you can do to help your problem right from your own home.

There are several things that you can do for your anxiety - as long as it isn't severe enough to be treated by a doctor or qualified mental health professional. If your anxiety isn't so severe that it is getting in the way of your normal everyday life, there are several home remedies that you can try to help with your problem.

First of all, you can try good old exercise. Exercise will not only help you to feel better about your body, but exercise increases the amount of serotonin that your brain produces. Serotonin is the chemical in your body that produces good feelings in the brain. So when you are feeling particularly anxious, jump on the treadmill, take a walk outside, or go play your favorite sport. It will increase your serotonin levels and also take your mind off of your anxiety for a while. Thinking of other things will make you far healthier both mentally and physically.

Another home remedy for anxiety is to take a dietary supplement to help you feel better. Some herbs in particular help alleviate the feelings of anxiousness and panic. These herbs include cloves, balm, chamomile, skullcap, orange blossom, valerian root, thyme, wood betony, catnip, hops, passa flora, lime flowers, lavender, and vervain. You can find such herbs in health stores, grocery store, and pharmacies in the form of capsules or teas. Before you take any of these herbs, however, do check that you aren't taking any prescription medication with which they will interfere. Your pharmacist or doctor can answer any questions you have concerning this.

One other home remedy for anxiety is a simple one: talking to family and friends. Nothing relieves anxiety by keeping your mind preoccupied with other thoughts. Surrounding yourself with positive, fun people will keep your outlook on life happy and light. A coffee chat with a friend or a movie outing with a family member can drastically improve mood. Being social with others can do wonders for the mind. And, if you are anxious about something, you can talk to others about it.

Finally, there are several rather simple things you can do to alleviate your anxiety, without having to see a doctor or take prescription medication. For example, taking a long hot shower or a soothing bath can improve your outlook on life. Taking a time out to enjoy a weekend afternoon or evening will promote positive energy in your mind and body. Doing something that you enjoy or starting a new hobby can bring your mind to other, more peaceful, levels.

So do something today to improve your mood and fight anxiety. We all have anxiety from time to time... It is just a matter of dealing with it.
