7 best tips you will ever hear to get rid of anxiety.
Anxiety is a negative emotion and an experience. It ranges from a very low level stress or nervousness to a sharp panic attack. Anxiety is frequently an outcome of fear and loss of control over something. Don’t let the stress catch you. Beat the stress and anxiety with ease. Below is a list of some simple tips to relieve anxiety you may never have heard about.
A free hug therapy for anxiety attack
Hug someone you love and someone who cares for you. Hugging is one of the best ways to express love and affection. It releases an important neurotransmitter of the brain, called Oxytocin. This is called a love hormone and it makes you feel extremely comfortable, composed and happy. Besides, it also reduces cortisol, the stress hormone!
So, whenever you suffer from any anxiety attack, give and get some hugs.
Use your smart phones smartly (at least now)
Everyone has smart phones (okay at least one smart phone) these days. Brace yourself from the pestering thoughts by watching some funny videos or browsing something funny! There are so many funnier things available outside your smart phones to explore! Read out some jokes and continue it until you get a good laugh!
Get rid of the depression by playing some games. You may have a liking for at least one or two games outside your smart phone. Knock off someone in your favorite game and feel fresh with a light mind.
Square Breathing to Curb Down Anxiety
You may know that breathing can really help you calm down. Yet, ‘square breathing’ is different from what you may already know about ‘breathing’. What is square breathing? Breathe in slowly until you count 6. Hold your breath for 6 counts. Breathe out slowly for 6 counts and hold the breath for 6 counts. That makes the ‘square breathing’. Remember to count slowly. Don’t rush up.
Sometimes, just breathing won’t help you to get rid of the anxiety attack! Take square breathes for around 5 minutes.
Since you concentrate on counting, holding, releasing and inhaling, you forget about the anxiety trigger!
Express your emotions
Just pour out your emotions. You need not share your worries or fear to others. Even crying will help you calm down. If you feel crying is inferior, write it down in a piece of paper or draft an email.
Gear up and cheer up!
De-clutter your brain
A messy room, a disorganized work schedule or even muddled desk aggravates your anxiety! Just spend a few minutes cleaning up and organizing everything. This is the best way to manipulate your brain. When everything gets neat and clean, your thoughts get organized and clear.
ANT refers to Automatic Negative Thoughts! ANT makes you stressed and fuels the depression. As said above, divert your mind. Move away from the place that made you stress out! Hear some music.
