Anxiety can occur in anyone for any apparent reason. Unfortunately, some people experience more severe cases of anxiety that last a lot longer than your typical short-term anxiety episode. When this occurs, the person is normally diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), anxiety that is on-going and can impact a person’s daily activities in a negative way.
Physical symptoms of Generalized Anxiety Disorder may include:
• Muscle Tension
• Inability to Relax
• Feeling out of Breath
Here’s some natural ways to help reduce anxiety:
Eat a healthy diet. Select healthy foods, such as veggies, fruit, whole grains, lean meats, and fish. Plan to reduce your alcohol and caffeine intake as well.
Meditate. The right type of meditation can provide your body with proper rest that in turn will reduce stress and anxiety.
Exercise. Exercise can reduce anxiety as well. Plan to do aerobic exercise (swimming, biking, running, walking) and plan for a 12 to 15 week long exercise program rather than a short-term routine.
In summary, it is possible for you to reduce anxiety naturally by eating a healthy diet, meditating, and exercising. These natural choices will provide you with a calmer and more relaxed life.
