Can you make it better? – Some direct actions to help relieve anxiety

Hello everybody 😀

As I said in my last post, today will be direct actions that you can do to relieve anxiety. I did some research and made a list of things that you can do that can be helpful. But it depends on you as a person and what you feel could help you!

These are some direct actions that you can take to relieve some of your anxiety and to understand it better. Try it and see if it helps to make it better!

Mindfulness exercise

One thing that can be helpful is meditation.

I found a guided meditation video that you may enjoy.

Or a beginners guide to meditation.(Source:https://www.gaiam.com/blogs/discover/meditation-101-techniques-benefits-and-a-beginner-s-how-to#)

This meditation exercise is an excellent introduction to meditation techniques.

  1. Sit or lie comfortably. 
  2. Close your eyes. 
  3. Make no effort to control the breath; simply breathe naturally.
  4. Focus your attention on the breath and on how the body moves with each inhalation and exhalation. Notice the movement of your body as you breathe. Observe your chest, shoulders, rib cage, and belly. Simply focus your attention on your breath without controlling its pace or intensity. If your mind wanders, return your focus back to your breath.
  5. Maintain this meditation practice for two to three minutes to start, and then try it for longer periods.

If you feel comfortable with meditation, there is a lot more information that you can research on different techniques.

Exercise

Another thing you can do that I mentioned in my last post is exercise. And I am not talking about full workouts but create a small habit of implementing some exercises in your daily life. There are so many to choose from, here are some examples of them:

 

    1. Lunges
    2. Squats
    3. Push Ups 
    4. Sit Ups
    5. Russian twist
    6. Jump roping 
    7. Going for a walk/hike

Any of these and so much more can be done in a small rep in a small period of time. Or maybe try to do it with your friends like playing basketball, football, volleyball or even jogging. 

Planning 

Try to take 10 minutes the day before to focus on your next day. Ask yourself what needs to be done and create a to do-list or plan it in time intervals. Focus on what you want to achieve! 

This concludes the topic of anxiety and I’ll introduce next Friday on what this campaign will focus on next.
