Anxious thoughts can overburden you, making it difficult to make decisions in a sound manner and take actions to deal with whatever issue that bothers you.
The following are ten (10) strategies to help you get unstuck from anxiety and move forward.
First, practice the 4-4-4 breathing technique. That is inhale for a count of four, hold for a count of four and exhale for a count of four. Pause and repeat three times in succession.
Second, close your eyes when you are stressed out. This helps to block out stimulation and reset your calm clock.
Third, make sleep a priority. Remember life is lousy when you are drowsy.
Fourth, always savor a positive scene or memory.
Fifth, always accept as true you are anxious or angry. When you label how you are feeling, and allow yourself to express it, the anxiety or anger you are experiencing may decrease.
Sixth, release the anxiety or anger. Get the emotional energy out with exercise. Go for a stroll!
Seven, listen to music. Tune in to your favorite music because it has a calming effect on your body and mind.
Eighth, change your focus. Leave the situation, look in another direction, walk out of the room, or go outside.
Ninth, get some fresh air. You should not be oblivious to the fact that the air and temperature in a room have a tendency of increasing your anxiety or anger.
And last but not least, grab for yourself books about discipline and thoughts. Each person needs to find a daily routine and treatment approach that works for them.
