At times, do you feel overwhelmed with anxiety? Are you depressed often? Do you feel that life is overwhelming and that you wish it would slow down so you could have more control over your life?
It’s possible that you have an anxiety disorder. Yet you don’t think that it is serious enough to see a doctor about or go to a counselor or get any medication. However, you do feel that you have got to do something to help control your anxiety level. There are several things that you can do to prevent anxiety or keep it under control.
First, pay close attention to your daily caffeine intake. If at all possible, stop drinking coffee or tea. Reduce or eliminate cola soda pop drinks because these have caffeine in them. (Caffeine is a stimulant, which can increase feelings of anxiety.) Pay attention to the ingredients in energy or sports drinks. Many of them are extremely high in caffeine.
Minimize the amount of chocolate that you eat. This may be hard to do. But, like coffee and soda pop, chocolate has caffeine and should be eaten in small amounts.
If you smoke, this is a perfect opportunity to stop. Also, don’t use chewing tobacco. Like caffeine, nicotine in tobacco is a stimulant and can make your anxiety worse.
Exercise every day. You don’t have to workout for hour for hours in the gym. Brisk walking helps you to manage stress. And, getting fresh air and sunshine also boosts your spirit and calms any anxious, negative feelings that you may have. Zumba is a also fun way to exercise and work off stress and anxiety.
