Anxiety is something many people face on a daily basis, something you may even know all too well. You may be worried, anxious, freaked out, and upset to the point you just keep playing whatever it is, over and over and over again in your head. There are a number of stressors in our every day lives, sometimes leaving us with no choice but to think about remedies for our anxiety.
Here are five great natural remedies for anxiety:
1. Chamomile Tea
Unlike a number of teas, this one has hardly any caffeine, but also has a great calming effect. If you’re feeling a bit jittery, take a quick break and grab a warm cup of tea to calm those nerves!
One of the best ways to let out some steam or worries is to get some exercise. By getting the blood flowing and the heart thumping, you release endorphins, which make you a happier person. Also, if you’re looking to lose weight, that’s one less thing you have to worry about – you’ll definitely feel and look better.
3. Eat breakfast
Many people who have anxiety issues tend to skip breakfast. It is the most important meal of the day – if you don’t take it, there goes the foundation of a good (and possibly worry-free) rest of your day!
4. Sniff Lavender
The intoxicating aroma of this violet-colored plant helps calm peoples’ nerves down. Its strong, soothing aroma gives off relaxation vibes, guaranteed to make even the most anxious person relaxed.
Breathe in, breathe out – one may meditate along with deep breaths, but it’s not a requirement. Breathe controlled breaths – even just focusing on your deep breathing is a great practice.
