5 Ways To Reduce Your Anxiety

Ways To Reduce Your Anxiety

Here are some ways to reduce your anxiety:

Be open to change

Even though change sucks when you have anxiety you need to know that change is an inevitable part of life and that you can’t do anything without things changing. You just need to learn ways that help you cope with these changes. And honestly once you really accept that change is a way of life it really does help reduce you anxiety.

Accept your anxiety

Your anxiety is there and I can tell you it’s not going anywhere. Sure at times you’ll feel much better and at times you’ll feel much worse but it will always be there to some degree lurking in the background. The good news is however that you can take back control and not let it control you. Do what makes you happy even if it does make you anxious at the same time.

Be prepared

From what I’ve been through with anxiety I’ve noticed that it tends to strike when you least expect it. I would definitely recommend being prepared especially if you know it’s going to be a stressful week. Make sure you know some relaxation techniques and also try to talk to someone who helps you calm down like a friend or family member.


Meditation and yoga are really helpful when it comes to reducing anxiety in the long term. Although it takes a while before there is a noticeable decrease in your anxiety over time you’ll see a huge difference in the levels of anxiety you’re experiencing. You’ll be more calm and in control. If yoga isn’t your thing try some other form of physical exercise because it makes a huge difference for a lot of people with anxiety. I’ve also noticed that my mental health gets worse when my physical health suffers and I know a lot of people experience this so keeping your physical health at its best is definitely important for reducing anxiety.

Seek help

If you feel as though your anxiety is getting worse you should consult a professional. They will help you find ways to manage your anxiety in the best way possible that works for you and will give you advice on how to reduce it in the long term.

  3. Great list as I struggle so much with anxiety. I hate it but I definitely have to accept it. At least I got rid of own of my wisdom teeth. I’m proud that I did it as it makes me so anxious. One by one. Anxiety will not win 💪

      1. Pls check email🤗

    1. Thank you!

  6. Great sharing.,

    1. Thank you!

      1. Anxiety is the main source of mental disorder.

        1. Yes it’s very common these days unfortunately.

  7. Accepting anxiety and being prepared for flare-ups has been so helpful for me, too. Great post 🙂

    1. I definitely agree just accepting your anxiety helps so much!

  8. Great pointers and info. One thing I’ve learned or come to realize is that my anxiety will show up in the morning, so expect it to and deal with it as such. Apply or use the helps I’ve developed to deal with it and then keep moving on. As a friend mentioned to me who also deals with anxiety is that “much of it is simply in your head and the messages sent ARE NOT TRUE.”

    1. Definitely most of it just has to do with your brain- it really is just in your head.

      1. For myself, it is mostly that way. It may certainly be different for others.

        1. It’s like that for me too. Most of it is just in my head.

  9. I cannot wait to get into yoga. Loved this post!

    1. That makes two of us! I’ve dipped into yoga a little bit and it’s still pretty intense for the body. Good luck on starting your journey!

      1. A lot of people say that it is intense. Thank you for sharing! Wishing you luck as well!

    2. It’s definitely life changing!

  10. Loved this 💙

    1. Thank you!

  11. An addition,
    Remember to breathe, deeply- it’s a very underrated biological tool that we humans NEED for living, don’t discount it. It can do much.

    1. Breathing helps so much I totally agree!

  12. Physical exercise and adequate sleep can be so vital to helping reduce anxiety!

    1. Definitely my anxiety always gets worse when I don’t get enough sleep!

  13. I agree except I do believe it can go away. I’ve had long periods of time that it wasn’t even an issue when I do a lot of self care, meditating, etc. We can control it to a degree. ❤️

    1. I agree I have been working on it a lot and it’s decreased significantly.

      1. That’s wonderful! It seems like I’ve been able to have longer and longer periods without anxiety. We can do it!!!!

        1. That’s amazing and yes we definitely can get rid of it for once and for all!!

  14. Some other things that I’ve found that help with anxiety:
    1. Replace coffee with green tea, especially on days where you know your anxiety will be bad. For me, these are clinical days, exam days, and lab evaluations.
    2. Turn nervousness into excitement. Physiologically, the body reacts the same way. When anxious/nervous, you’re more likely to be pessimistic, and screw up. It shows in attitude – trust me. Excitement will naturally put you in a better mood which is good in situations where you’re being tested.

    1. I totally agree with both of those! Coffee just makes anxiety so much worse so I’ve been drinking chamomile tea which is supposed to have a soothing effect and being excited instead is super helpful too!

      1. Chamomile tea is quite soothing. I’m currently out but I have green tea which seems to have a similar effect. I think I’ll save coffee for lecture days/weekends only.

        1. Yeah I usually only drink coffee if I really need it and feel like I can’t get through the day without it.

  15. Accepting your anxiety is so important and it actually makes such a huge difference – I never even considered it until my therapist mentioned it! Xx

    1. I totally agree I think the first step should be to accept that you have anxiety. That’s the only way you can learn to deal with it.

  16. Seeing a counselor was one of the best things I’ve ever done. It is such a relief to have someone to vent too.

  17. My next blog is about anxiety. Great information you shared.

    1. I look forward to reading it. Thanks so much.
