Anxiety help tips

Stress management-

Try to limit the amount of stress you are putting on yourself. Give yourself a break once in a while. Give yourself some grace for not getting as much done as you had hoped.

Ecercise-

For so many things a little exercise can do amazing things. Just saying enough is enough and going for a short walk can have a huge impact.

I’m not saying to go to the gym for 4 hours or anything like that. Even 10 minutes of hitting the weights could help. It will at least change your state of mind and make you focus on something else for a bit.

Focus on the things you CAN control-

You have enough going on that your don’t need things causing you anxiety that you can’t control. Don’t worry about things other people are doing even though you told them not to. You can’t control other people.

Get support-

Talk to someone you trust. Find a group that can share some of the same things your are going through. You will find you are not alone in your situation.

Relaxation techniques-

Meditate for 10 to 15 minutes a day. You don’t need to be a master. Just focus on getting your mind quiet.

Try some yoga. Put on a beginner yoga class from YouTube and don’t worry about looking silly.

Deep breathing. Take deep breaths and slow down. Google box breathing and give it a shot.

Take a hot bath.

Get better sleep-

Before bed make sure you have time to relax. Don’t go to bed all wound up. When you go to bed, think of all the good things that happened earlier in the day and be grateful for them.

The exercising you have started will help with you falling to sleep faster as well.

Have a better diet-

Try to eat healthier. Slow down and plan your meals instead of just getting that fast sack everyday.

Reduce alcohol, caffeine and nicotine-

Caffine was the big one for me.

The best help I can recommend.

Read! Reading something of value can help with anxiety more that you know. Especially something that is geared toward helping with anxiety.

The best recommendation I have is to read “Awaken the Giant Within” by Tony Robbins.

This book will will help you with way more than anxiety. Is will blow your mind on what you didn’t know about how much you can do. If you want to make a real lasting change and get rid of fear and worry read this book and do the exercises.

Check it out on Amazon right here. I can’t even begin to tell you how much it helped my life.

  1. Hi Russ,

    I’m not currently a single mom, but I was one many years ago. I understand the issues that come from being a single parent. It takes a special skill set, plus a lot of patience and love.

    These are great tips for helping to tone down your feelings of anxiety. Having been to therapy many times in my life and for many issues, these tips are exactly what the professionals tell people when they are anxious and depressed. Thanks for writing this article, and I look forward to hearing more from you.

  2. For me, it’s always about increasing exercise – while I do take in a moderate dose of caffeine (less than or equal to one cup of coffee) prior to exercise, I’ve found exercising in shorter bouts twice a day staves off anxiety nicely. It’s also great to utilize nutrition AND better sleep – two techniques I’ve done myself that have worked wonders. Getting better sleep was hard for me to come by, but I did get there in the end and it’s been a night and day difference.

  3. As a 30+ year Army veteran, I can relate to this article. I spent years dealing with anxiety (now diagnosed as PTSD) before I finally got help. All the signs/symptoms where there, but in our “don’t show weakness” military culture, I just put it in my box of hidden feelings and kept driving on. I tried everything that you outlined, but getting support by far, is the most crucial one. Having people in your corner, who you trust, will go a long way in your healing process.
