The most effective natural remedies for anxiety
Want to cure anxiety the natural way? Here a few natural remedies to do just that.
Constant worry is a pain in the butt. In 2017, anxiety now seems to be a part of everyday life for many of us. According to statistics, 2 million Australian’s suffer from it. It’s not hard to see why! There are just so many things for us to be anxious about – money, our health, relationships, our career, and so on. Sometimes, our anxiety is mild. You know the feeling – your heart begins to flutter a little faster, your palms start to sweat, and you have to stop whatever it is you’re doing and focus on calming down.
Sometimes though, anxiety can really start to take over our lives as the physical symptoms get unbearable. Skin conditions can develop, stomach spasms can happen, and the headaches get stronger. However, as bad as anxiety gets, there’s no need to rush to the chemist for some pills just yet.
Before you take that big step, let’s take a look at some natural remedies for anxiety.
Drink Chamomile Tea Throughout The Day
A great way to steady your nerves before yet another potentially stressful day, is to drink a cup of chamomile tea.
Chamomile tea is widely known for its soothing properties, and contains compounds that tie to the same brain receptor as Valium. The difference is that chamomile tea is 100% natural.
Don’t like the taste? Try it as a supplement!
Exercise doesn’t have to be strenuous, and you don’t have to turn into a beefcake gym bunny who wakes up at 6.30 each morning to dead lift.
Exercise is great for your brain. It’s a fab way to beat the blues and ward off anxiety by making you healthier, boosting your esteem, and providing a great distraction to any issues you have in your life.
Exercise makes us feel good about ourselves. And when we feel good about ourselves, we’re in a much better position to kick anxiety to the kerb.
Sunshine Is Key
Anyone who is predisposed to SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) will find that there is a link between anxiety attacks and the seasons.
It’s common for winter to lower our mood. Darker nights, frosty mornings … what’s there to like about that? Once Santa has come and gone, the only good thing about winter is that it will end … eventually.
A great way to lift your spirits and fend off anxiety is by getting some Vitamin D from that great ball of fire in the sky. Sunshine has been proven to boost our mood by increasing the amount of serotonin (the so-called happy hormone) that our brain produces.
The next time someone invites you to the beach for some ice cream, take them up on the offer.
Eat Quickly (Easily One Of The Best Natural Remedies For Anxiety!)
When you feel an anxiety attack coming on, the best thing to do is immediately do something that will take your mind off it. Some people count coins, others blast music through their headphones. But the best thing to do is eat some (healthy) food.
This is because there is a correlation between anxiety and low blood sugar levels. To get those blood sugar levels back up and stabilise your mind and mood, grabbing some food or drink is a fab idea.
Stop The Unnecessary Drama
Those of us who are plague by worry are very good at creating stories in our heads. If we’ve got a job interview coming up, we’ll play out a story in our minds about how badly it’s going to go wrong.
If we’re scared of flying, each time we picture ourselves on a plane, calamitous things happen. Wings fall off. The pilot has a heart attack, and those oxygen bags come down. But how likely is any of this going to happen? It’s VERY unlikely, and deep down we know it.
Anxiety is often caused not by what’s happening to us at that moment, but by what we think will happen. Ask yourself this: These stories in your head – have they ever come true before? Exert a degree of rationality and live in the moment.
