5 Tips On Coping With Anxiety

2. Change your diet. Having a well balance diet, with the right combination of protein, carbohydrates, and fat is important for your overall health. Meat and cheese proteins increase Tryptophan which then releases Seratonin. Seratonin is used in Anti-Depressants to reduce anxiety or depression.

3. Start exercising. You can start by doing a daily 45-minute walk around your neighborhood, or take a yoga class. Exercising is a great outlet for anxiety.

4. Learn to relax. Deep breathing exercises can help alleviate anxiety symptoms. Sometimes when we are anxious, we forget to breath, therefore we may have to retrain ourselves on breathing.

5. Talk to someone you can trust about your problems. Talking can help you release some of the stress and can allow you see things in a new light through someone else’s eyes.

Very often, it's possible to get past an anxiety cycle with the help of friends or family, someone who can help you sort out your problems. If anxiety becomes overwhelming make sure to see a physician or maybe a therapist.
