Anxiety is a phenomenon that is materialized by speculative fears, fears of personal development.
This psychological condition leads to doubt in one’s ability, and also limit opportunities to socialize and eventually it take over our rationality.
It is easily identified by irregular sleep and disorders of food, among many others.
Anxiety is natural reaction that you potentially face when you perceive a threat or fear to do something, it can be prevented through relaxation and personal reflection.
Anyway, this invisible burden corrodes many people who want to get rid of this for once and for all.
Here are some tips to achieve this.

1. Limit anxiety by adopting a healthy lifestyle

If anxiety is most often based on irrational fears and unconscious mind, it can be limited or contained by simply changing your habits.
You fear that if you make a public appearance then it would be bad choice and you would spoil your image, or you fear that someone follows you when you get home… you cannot let this anxiety rule your life and limit you activities.
One of the simplest solutions is to understand the personal life style. Focus your mind on a lifestyle that promotes a balanced and healthy body.
To do this, it is recommended to exercise regularly.
When you exercise and play outdoors, you sweat yourselves and free your mind, it helps you eliminate stress and it also helps is sleep disorders.
When we spend a lot of our energy in playing outdoor or doing exercises, than we are tired in a good way.
It is advisable to indulge in an activity that requires concentration and physical exertion such as tennis, weight training, or swimming for example.
When you return from work or complete all the household chores then it is best time of day to expel all your negative feelings by doing exercises.
 This allows a radical break with the stress of your job and enjoys a real relaxation time afterwards.
After returning home, it will be time to take a shower. It’s not only a matter of hygiene but also a process to fight your anxiety. Feel free to take your time while taking shower, focus on the sensation of water drops on your body and close your eyes to relax your mind.
You will eventually realize that these are small reflexes that will improve your overall feeling and ultimately develop a sense of general well-being.
Lack of sleep is another factor that can increase anxiety in daily life.
The sleep of less than eight hours should be avoided. As you get old these sleep disorders worsens.
Apart from this, keep a check on your diet, what you eat also affects your anxiety levels.

Avoid eating too much fat, especially before you go to bed and think about eating fruits and vegetables to ingest the vitamins that your body needs to be functional.
Alcohol, cigarettes, joints (or other drugs) are obviously not recommended if you suffer from anxiety.
If you feel that taking drugs or alcohol will help you forget your worries for hours then you are absolutely o the wrong path. As soon as you are conscious these feeling will reinforce and it will also lead to addiction, which will eventually mar your health.
Lovers of coffee will be disappointed, but caffeine is also a factor of stress and can lead to panic attacks.
If you want to drink you can drink Rooibos (also called red tea), free of any harmful substance.
And most importantly, at any cost you should not refuge in the comfort of your home to fight against anxiety.
Your social life is a decisive element in regaining control of your emotions.
Get out, see the world, do party (without excess of course), to benefit from a consistently solid emotional support, which will limit your vulnerability of fears buried deep within you.

2. Psychological support and cognitive behavioral therapy

Cognitive behavioral therapy is done on the advice of a psychologist and is for people who are at the extreme of the anxiety levels and are unable to overcome their anxiety.
Anxiety is most commonly due to deep unconscious fear, this method aims to highlight the source of your discomfort.
Identifying your anxiety will then be the study of bodily symptoms that occur in situations identified as stressful.
In short, you have to tell your fears to a specialist and he can define the origin of it, and all this is done in a secure environment.
In addition to these scenarios, cognitive behavioral therapy will offer psychological support that will allow you to meet other patients, victims of the same anxieties, who will share their experiences and progress for the greater good of the group.
Within weeks, you will take control of your emotions and learn to master your fears, in that you will also know which situations or phenomena promote their appearance.

3. Is it necessary to resort to drugs to treat anxiety?

The question is obviously rhetorical than anything else.
There are many kinds of antidepressants or other beta-blockers, but it is impossible to consider locking yourself in a chemical straitjacket for the rest of your life.
Thus, if treatment is there, be sure that it is done for a short term.
Some people are reduced to taking pills to sleep and wander more than they live.
You'll understand that that I am not in favor of a systematic medication.
Finally, note that treating anxiety with drugs have significant side effects, such as drowsiness, loss of appetite, or a relative impression of not feeling anything at all, which can hinder the perception that you have your family .

4. And if the plants could reduce your anxiety?

Going homeopathy way? Some plants used in herbal teas or granules are famous to calm body and mind.
The efficacy of herbal medicine is not yet objectively demonstrated, however, be careful not to exceed the prescribed doses.
Do not mix different medicines either.
If you are under antibiotics, do not risk unforeseen reaction taking such drugs.

5. Alternative methods to regain serenity

Anxiety has a psychological origin, it seems only natural way to limit its effects is to turn to relaxation and meditation.
Thus, activities like yoga and even some martial arts based on the search for inner peace and concentration can help you chase your fears by offering new approaches to your inner being and its resistance to external factors.
Simple tools such as breathing, muscle relaxation and guided images, give you the keys to overcome your fears and you manage to "escape" the pressures of you daily tasks.
You can also learn to visualize the physical signals of occurrence of stress to prevent the rise of anxiety by focusing on your heartbeat, your breathing, or tension from your muscles.
Finally, some people question the effectiveness of traditional western medicine and rely on old practices of several centuries as acupuncture that stimulates the nerve centers and allow an overall relaxation, physical as well as psychological.

Anxiety is not a weakness.

Your psychology simply reacts to pressures when it in contact with the environment.
Living with a perpetual fear of what might happen next or what might happen in future, or fear of never achieving your goals leads to a significant limitation of your inherent potential.
You cannot ignore it and you live each passing day in fear.

Do what you feel confident about first this will help you gain confidence. Replace your negative thoughts like – I cannot do this, I fear doing this, I might not be able to complete this..Feed yourself with “I will” and “I can”. In tense scenarios think, what would happen in the worst situations? In most of the cases you will find an answer that your thoughts or fears are baseless when compared to results of “worst situation that can happen”.

It's all in your mind so make yourself strong, stand for yourself. It’s your life and its valuable, do not live in fear. You can overcome this, feed yourself with positive thoughts every morning. See the good things happening around you. Remember no one is perfect, you won’t die of your mistakes. Mistakes are good, learn from them and do better. Believe in yourself, tell yourself that you are going to do well.

Start with one thing a day, whatever you fear of or you think that you won’t be able to do it. Do it in isolation to start with. Do hell with society and peer pressure. You are unique and important.
