How To Deal With Anxiety Without Medication
Today we are going to address one of my the biggest challenges for people with anxiety related issues, people who are naturally anxious struggling very much to just sit around and relax. We need to be busy doing something, we feel our best when we are busy and when we sit down to relax our anxiety levels begin to rise making us very anxious and jittery. One thing which has helped me be able to sit down and relax has been to add my one and only herbal supplement, this supplement is known for calming the anxious person down.
What Do You Eat ?
Believe it or not what you eat can be putting fuel into the fire to prevent you from being able to relax, I found this out accidentally when I had to start my gluten-free diet because I am gluten intolerant. Within two weeks to one month my anxiety slowly started to become less severe, another great benefit was my sleep improved drastically. I have never slept more then 3 to 5 hours at one time in my entire life, even as a child and teenager. Now I am getting 6 to 8 hours of sleep most nights, this has been like a miracle for me and just maybe it will improve your anxiety and sleep. It is well worth a try to go gluten-free for just one month and see if you notice any positive difference, if not you can always go back to your gluten diet.
Relax With Herbal Teas
While sitting in the evening after I finish writing my articles when I am ready to relax, I have experienced herbal calming teas to help me relax as I am winding down from my day. Herbal teas are caffeine-free teas, so you will not be stimulated by any caffeine by drinking these types of teas. Caffeine is something your should avoid when trying to wind down and relax, also caffeine will disturb many people’s sleep.
Magic Of Music
For me music is magic to help me to relax, weather I am playing music on my harmonica or my guitar or listening to soothing music it has a very calming effect for me. Now you can not be listening to your favorite rock music and expect this type of music to have that effect, you need something you enjoy yet is slow smoothing music. I enjoy listening to easy listening music to get this effect, another type of music is classical music. I also benefit from the relaxation compact discs, these also are great for helping many people fall asleep listening to them while laying in bed. I highly recommend the relaxation compact discs, I do have my own collection of these which I use on nights I am having problems falling asleep.
Another goody are your DVD’s, there are many of these products as well to choose from. Many people prefer these over the compact discs, it is another option for you to experiment with if you choose too. If your wishing to start practicing yoga as many people with anxiety are today, I would recommend you going this route to learn yoga or take classes if that is in your budget.
These relaxation techniques are the most simple and easiest to start out with, I recommend you experiment with these and see which ones works best for you. Learning to relax and improve your sleep will make such a huge difference in your anxiety levels, I know when I over do it and I am over tired my anxiety begins to increase to a much higher level. I chose these to share with you simply because they work for many people, plus they are inexpensive to experiment with and find which ones works for you and which ones do not.
