  • Action Strategies to Reduce Anxiety Now

    Lemon Bay Mental Wellness Center here to talk about Anxiety and offer some action strategies to help reduce your anxiety right now.

    • Drink water. This one sounds simple enough, right. The truth is that water has some amazing healing powers. Be sure to get at least eight glasses of clear fluids each day.
    • Exercise. Go outdoors. The weather is beginning to cool off and this is perfect time to begin an exercise routine. Why wait until the New Year? Exercise gets the endorphins pumping and will actually relax you. When you engage in regular exercise, you get your body into a healthy rhythm. You will have a built-in break from anxious situations when you make time for exercise.
    • Meditate. Meditation is certainly an action strategy even though it seems like quite the opposite. Your choice to be inactive is an action in itself. Try to meditate by taking deep breaths in and out. Doing so will relax all of your muscles in the process and your problems will begin to fade away.
    • Eat a balanced diet. Putting healthy foods into your body can help reduce anxiety. Analyze your current diet and pinpoint the items that might need to go. Enjoy the less healthy items in moderation while you increase your intake of the nutritious foods your body craves.
    • Start a journal. Starting a journal can be a real stress reliever. It is as if you have a secret friend to vent to whenever you want. In addition to reducing anxiety, starting a journal might also be beneficial for you because it will help you preserve good memories, too.
    • Talk with friends. Feeling anxious also usually makes you feel quite alone. One way to combat this is to remain open about your feelings and communicate with other people. Make time for your friends or family.
