Simple Steps To Cope With Your Anxiety

black-man-anxiety-at-desk

Spending hours worrying about worst-case scenarios is no way to live a healthy life, yet many people live like this because of their anxiety. People with anxiety often times find it difficult to manage because they physically can’t, or they just don’t know how. Since everyone doesn’t want to get hooked on anxiety medication, it is beneficial to know how to cope with sweating, trembling, shortness of breath, or other anxiety symptoms.

 

While it may seem like anxiety isn’t manageable, it is. It can take time and practice, but learning to be less anxious and braver is possible. If anxiety takes a toll on your life, use the following tips to help manage your anxiety.

 

Break Big Projects Into Small Tasks:

Anxiety tends to find its way into the workplace, and it often displays itself in the form of procrastination because completing the work can feel paralyzing to anxious people. It is best to break down a project into small portions, so that your goals are more easily accomplished. You can also apply this tip outside the workplace. For example, if going to a party and socializing induces anxiety, make it your goal to only greet the host, rather than talking to all the people you don’t know.

 

Establish What Is Bothering You:

The symptoms of anxiety are more noticeable than what is causing them. How do you get to the bottom of your anxiety? It can be beneficial to explore your thoughts and feelings by writing in a journal. Write down everything that is bothering you or discuss your thoughts/feelings with a friend or therapist. Uncovering things is a great way to manage anxiety.

 

Try Valerian Root Tea Or Magnesium Foods:

Provided you aren’t allergic to valerian root, this herb can have a powerful calming effect on the body. Valerian root tea is typically consumed an hour or so before bed to help induce sleep. You can also eat magnesium rich foods to help manage stress levels.

 

Accept Your Anxiety:

The common acceptance for someone with anxiety is that he or she experiences anxiety. This isn’t the same as accepting anxiety. People with anxiety are not alone because anxiety affects about 40 million American adults. Accepting anxiety is like adding additional support to manage the condition.

 

Prove Your Anxiety Wrong:

What we mean by this is that it is beneficial to expose yourself to the thing that triggers your anxiety. A study at the University of California, Los Angeles, found that exposure to the anxiety trigger can help people cope with it. For example, you may be riding the elevator and your worst fear is getting trapped in there for hours. Face your fear by getting inside the elevator, riding it to the desired floor, getting out, and realize that you made it out without getting stuck. You can apply this to many of your fears to boost self-empowerment.

    Q: I've really been suffering with some anxiety issues and was looking at the symptoms of an overactive thyroid, which seem to be most of my symptoms. I was also about to have sexual relations with my girl for the first time and my body just started heating up like I had a fever, and the anxiety hit me like a bomb. I had taken the JACKRABBIT FORMULA, but it felt like the Yohimbe had my heart racing and I couldn't maintain an erection anymore do to nervousness of failure. I also get sweaty palms and feet a lot. My heart starts racing sometimes just out the blue. Could this be an overactive thyroid? Do you have any other suggestions of what could be going on?

    A:

    It could be an over-active thyroid gland, Beloved! It could also be psycho-somatic. I think the Jackrabbit also played a role in your sweating situation too due to certain "warming" herbs. Learn yoga and meditation, Beloved. It's all in the mind, Good brother. The keys to life are in the mind. Check out our new e-book MENTAL SCIENCE MANUAL.

    Q: I am a 29 year old African American female. I would like to tell you my story and get your advice. Before Sept. 28, 2008 I was a healthy fun loving female but after sept. 28th my health has not been the same. I wake up in the morning weak with nausea and headaches. I went to Kaiser and they said I had a virus and I had to let it take its course. I work with kids and it was hard for me to go back to work because 1. I kept getting sick. 2. My boss was mad that I was sick and not able to work. So I went back to Kaiser and then they said I was sick and had a virus with a mix of anxiety(due to my boss going crazy on me). They said I need to rest and stop being anxious, so I can heal.(well the anxiety is gone) Next I started to get sharp pains in my stomach area(which I have had before on and off for the past couple of years but it would only happen like once or twice a year) but I was scared because the pains we're very sharp and happening like two weeks apart. So Kaiser told me to go see a Upper GI Dr. I went to see one and had an endoscopy done and they found a yeast infection in my throat and that also my esophagus was irritated to but my stomach looked fine. So they put me on Prontiox (for the irritated esophagus and Difucan (for the yeast infection). Well as soon as I finished the medication for the yeast infection in my esophagus, I lost my voice and could not talk for 4-5 days and I still have the stomach pains. So the Upper GI dr. told me the sore throat and losing my voice was a side effect to GERD and that is what I may have. So he asked to up the dose of the Prontiox (so now I am taking 80 mg instead of 40 mg a day). But guess what still having stomach pains and my voice still goes in and out and it feels like something is stuck in my throat and now when I eat, I feel food get stuck in my chest like right in the middle of my breast. So what is going on with me...they have done blood work on me from blood count to checking me for STD's (even HIV) and everything came back normal/negative. And they keep saying all my blood work is healthy...So what is going on and what can I take, because I am a natural person and my system is sensitive to a lot of stuff and I don’t like being on these medications. And now the DRs may think I have IBS..Oh boy Help!! And oh yeah I have had very bad cramps when I have my period and take Motrin and I would like to know is there anything I can take that is sensitive to my stomach... HELP

    A:

    Beloved, first perform the FULL BODY DETOX. Next, perform TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE, and lastly, perform the 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE. These kits will repair your system!

    Q: I recommend this site to all because it has helped me in so many ways, that I was hoping it may be of help to my 11 year old niece. She is really shy towards others, even at school. To the point where last year, it started affecting her school work. Because, at school you have to interact with others, as well as participate in class. At home with family she's active, sociable, and lot's of fun. When she gets around others she shuts down, believe it or not. I was talking with her mother, my sister and she realized that we was that same way aswell growing up. I don't want her to go through life like that, if there is a way to help her. My sister mentioned pills. Since I have found your site there is no way that I'll have her popping man made pills, when there are herbs that are safe. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. I know they have tea I saw for adults (Stress/Anxiety), but for kids I wasn't sure. I need something that will definately work. Thanks for all you do, and look forward to hearing from you.

    A:

    It's probably just a personality thing. However, it's not a sickness. It's more astrological, and personal essence than anything. I would suggest that the child have its natal chart and numerology chart done. Everything about the child is written "In the Wheel."

    Q: I have a client that had her thyroid removed, the doctors have her on 3 grains of the natural...well natural for a pig. Thyroid. She couldn't sleep so they put her on ativan. Which is making her crazy (between you and I) She is still not sleeping and feeling agitated and this drug is causing her anxiety. I feel it has built up in her system and she has to dose down off of it. Do you have anything that would help her sleep? I have already suggested your thyroid blend. However, I didn't know if it could really help her as they removed her thyroid. So perhaps she does need the grains, as her body can no longer produce it on her own. I would really like to get her on natural as possible stuff so we can see what is physical and what we can work on energetically. Right now she feels like an energetic mess. Any suggestions?

    A:

    I RECOMMEND FOR HER (TO INDUCE SLEEP) OUR NERVES FORMULA (6 CAPSULES BEFORE BEDTIME) AND CALMING INSPIRANT. AND BY ALL MEANS SHE NEEDS A NATURAL THYROID FORMULA (I.E. THYRIOD FORMULA AND IODINE PHOSPHATE. IF SHE FEELS LIKE AN ENERGETIC MESS, SOME SERIOUS CHAKRA BALANCING/ALIGNMENT IS NEEDED.

    Q: I am a 32 year old african american woman. I am noticing that my body is changing overnight. I lost my mother in 2005, and since then I have been diagnosed with being clinically depressed. I was prescribed something that I did not even fill. I contacted the pharmacy to ask a few questions, and yes the pharmacist referred me to your website. I was able to grab some vitamin b 100, complex and that has helped me tremendously. I am calm, my anxiety level down is way down. I don't respond like I used to. Kinda just let things go all of a sudden, I am at peace. Okay! Do I need to cleanse? I have other issues as well, I really cant afford the Total Woman Cleanse. However, can I start on some tea, and maybe a less costly herbal pill. I also experience bad cramps monthly, and my hair is thinning.

    A:

    Greetings! Very interesting that a pharmacist would recommend someone to our site. However, I am thankful to this pharmacist. I wonder if I know the person, as I know a few pharmacists. Good to hear those results pertaining to depression! Hair is thinning: Order and drink 1-2 cups of Hair-Skin-Nails Tea daily. Menstrual complaints: order and drink 1-3 cups of Moon Cycle Tea daily. I'd also recommend our Detox Tea

    Q: I'm a 38-year-old male who has been suffering with Atrial Fibrillation for 3 years. Up until the age of 35 I never had any real illness that had any caused for concern, and then out of the blue I have a heart related issue. My Doctor has never given me a cause of where this came from and all the research I've done on my own turns up the same. The answers the doctor gave (caffeine, alcohol, and so on) I've never really used any of those things excessively. My eating habits up until that time where not that great and I was about 100lbs over weight. I've lost 85lbs since, and also have giving up all meats. Also I had Cath. Ablation surgery for the A-Fib. It's been 3 months since surgery and I'm now off of the Coumadin they had me taking. I'm not sure if the surgery was a total success, I've not had an attack since New Year’s Day 2008. But I'm still not feeling back to my old self. I've been having some very weird feelings of nausea, tension, constipation, and tiredness, headaches, etc. When I do go to the doctor they tell me that everything looks fine and that I may be a bit stressed and suffering from anxiety. I'm writing to you in hopes that you may be able to guide me to the right path to healing and returning to living somewhat normal life again.

    Q: Hi, I have been suffering from a dull pain the testicular area for over 2 years now. I have seen 2 urologists that have confirmed that I have enterococcus bacteria in either the prostate of genital area based on semen culture. I have also done testicle ultrasound and CAT scan of the area with good results. One of the urologist said that I have an inflamed prostate (prostitis) there was some varicose veins when ultra sound was done but the urologist continues to give me long term antibiotics. Some my symptoms have been dull pain in the testicular area when I need to have a bowel movement. low energy, moody, memory loss, irritable, confused, brain fog etc. I use to have a health sex drive but now my sex drive is really low. A bit of erectile dysfunction but I think that comes more from having the pain all the time and anxiety. I don't know if this is possible but my penis seems to have reduced in size when erect. The doctor ask me to try some cialis for the ED which I did for a short while but decided I needed something natural because of the long term problems of using those medications. I have had long periods of stress from a bitter business relationship about 2 years ago. My concern is that every time I go to the urologist all they want to do it give me antibiotics and that doesn't seem to be working. I am concern of the other organ damage caused by taking long term antibiotics. Is there an alternative you recommend? I have been looking at your Anti- virus treatment. I am 30 years old.

    A:

    I would suggest you perform the FULL BODY DETOXfollowed by the TOTAL MALE CLEANSE. Read some of our free health articles too on male reproductive health. Healing begins with knowledge!
