3 Ways to Work with Anxiety and get Immediate Relief
In such challenging current times, most of us have lost that stable job, that good social life, and more and as a result are feeling lost, confused, anxious, and down. Here are few ways you can use immediately to release that anxiety and feel immediate relief instead.
By taking deep belly breaths it helps you feel more calm and relaxed. Moreover, it prevents you from constantly thinking about the same stuff and stops your brain from ruminating excessively. It also gives times for your parasympathetic system to kick in properly and help you out.
Vent via letter writing
It’s normal to feel anxious but often writing it all down in a diary or sheet of paper and immediately tearing it off without re-reading it helps utilize all the senses of the body and de-stresses a person easily.
Punch it out
As we feel anxious we often tend to store and hoard that anxiety within us subconsciously and also within the body, this stored anxiety and fear over time can also lead to an anxiety attack if the intensity is too high. To prevent this physical activity is most crucial but often just physical exercise doesn’t help. We often feel highly anxious because we feel the loss of control, helplessness, and frustration majorly. Here it’s essential to regain back that sense of control and release that helplessness.
A simple yet very powerful exercise that anyone can do is taking a pillow and punching out all that frustration connected with the situation causing anxiety in the first place. The more details you can recollect as you punch away the better this helps the body system vent and release fully and helps you cool down easily as an individual. The key is to do this constantly and regularly for a minimum of 15 minutes without stopping.
