Symptoms Of Anxiety And How To Reduce Them

  • Disclaimer

    I would like to start by saying that I am not a doctor, and these are just some things that I use to decrease my anxiety, so thought I would share.

  • Anxiety is a common problem in all of us and it is expected that we will all pass through a phase of anxiety at least once in our lives. Whether triggered by stress at school or work, an injury or perhaps no obvious reason, there are several ways to decrease your symptoms.

  • Most noticeable symptoms

    'Butterflies'

    That feeling of constant panic is one of the most memorable symptoms. Similar to the feeling of 'butterflies' or nervousness.

    Increased heart rate/ palpitations

    Irregular heart beats are common, for example one minute your heart will have a regular, steady heart beat and the next will be beating hard and fast.

    Increased perspiration

    This is what it says, you sweat more. Whether a big difference or only a little difference, it's still there. This has to be one of the more frustrating symptoms.

  • THINGS I DO TO EASE MY ANXIETY

  • Meditation

    Any form of meditation works pretty well. Here's what I do:

    Start by sitting cross legged with your back against a wall. Make sure you are entirely comfortable and will not be distracted.

    Close your eyes. Take deep or regular, but steady breaths.

    Imagine you are staring into a lake or large pond and are throwing rocks into it.

    As you breathe in, throw a rock. This will represent your stressful thoughts, as though you are emptying your mind.

    As you breathe out, watch the ripples on the surface. These represent the thoughts that are leaving.

    Repeat until you feel relaxed.

  • General deep breaths.

    If you're out and about, and suddenly get hit by a wave of anxiety, try taking three deep breaths.

    If this doesn't work, take another three until some feelings have subsided.

  • Having someone to talk to

    This is especially useful if there is a cause of your anxiety.

    This person could be a friend, therapist, family member or generally anyone. Sometimes it can be very helpful to know that someone is there for you and hearing other people's thoughts and opinions can distract you from being trapped inside your own mind.

    This also helps to make sure that you get regular socialising and interaction, which means that you aren't only focusing inwardly and neglecting any social form, but instead are keeping a healthy, outgoing mindset.
