If you happen to feel anxiety over anything… these simple methods can help you not just reduce your anxiety, but also move past it. This will take time, patience, and practice however. This isn’t traditional meditation- but in many ways it’s similar. It’s great technique if you don’t have much time. You will first focus your thoughts elsewhere to reduce your anxiety. Then you will confront your anxiety directly. It sounds simple, but takes some time to get used to.
If you want to read more about meditation, you can can check out my blog, or even my book! I think mediation is the best way to deal with stress and anxiety, the technique below is great if you have a busy schedule. In the end, I recommend you find ways to free up your time too. 😉
- When feeling anxious about anything, it can be good to look around the room and describe to yourself objects you see. This will help get your mind of what is stressing you out as well as help you regain focus.
- If your hearts racing, slow your breathing down by taking deep breaths slowly. This will help reduce your heart rate and calm your nerves. It can take 30 seconds to a few minutes depending on practice.
- Finally, once you are feeling calmer and are somewhere comfortable you need to consider the anxiety and what stressed you out about the situation. Confronting things early is a good way to prevent future stress and anxiety. At the very least it presents the opportunity to grow. If doing so causes you more stress take it one day at a time and learn to move past it. Your stress and anxiety isn’t who you are, so don’t get tangled up in it!
