Have you ever experienced sweaty hands or your mind is going through something and all of a sudden your heart starts to beat faster? It could mean you are having an anxiety attack. There are a lot of things that can trigger an anxiety attack, such as speaking to a broad audience while being a shy person.
Going through anxiety attacks is not pleasant. Why should anyone stay stuck as someone who experiences anxiety attacks? There’s no reason any human should suffer because of this and worry those around them when they can be managed.
Here are a few proven ways we have compiled from well researched and verified sources to manage anxiety attacks:
Get Enough Sleep
Lack of sleep inevitably leads to high levels of stress, considering that majority of lack of sleep is caused due to stress. Every human is recommended to get at least 7 to 8 hours of sleep per day to pursue a healthy life. If you decide to lose sleep because of playing games and watching movies, you are not doing your body any favors.
Though it is not ideal and it goes without saying, living through the day and sleeping through the night is the healthiest way of living. Your sleeping pattern could literally be the solution to all of your anxiety and stress issues. It doesn’t cost anything, improves your health, and you can start tonight.
Take Deep Breaths
When you are a bit nervous, you must take numerous deep breaths until you feel better. This is a time when breathing more frequently is better for you, but make sure you take them deep and slow. After all, it is free and there is no stopping you from doing it. Just like the warm-up to a long workout. It is also possible to do numerous exercises while doing breathing exercises. Thus, you will be losing calories while managing your anxiety attacks!
Laughing can certainly cure stress so the chances of having an anxiety attack would be minimized. Why not download a comedy movie or watch something funny on YouTube? There are a lot of stand up comedians who have free videos there. You will definitely be able to relate to their jokes since most of them joke about today’s issues. You can also hang out with friends who are good at making you laugh. There are some comedians who are not really funny though so better avoid them and focus on the ones who make you giggle.
Change Your Diet
If you are always eating unhealthy food like take-out, candies and milkshakes, you ought to change that immediately. After all, I’m no nutritionist but I can tell you high salt and high sugars can never be a good thing for you. Literally nothing good can come out of it apart from make you happy which let’s be honest, is the only reason we do it!
In 2020, one good thing is that there are plenty of healthy alternatives to them that have zero sugar. Another option would be to try supplements so that you won’t have to worry about that bulge in your tummy. When you are overweight, it will certainly lead to stress. After all, you could look in the mirror and see that you are completely out of shape. You are going to be frustrated because you don’t know what you are going to do to lose that belly and the best way to do it is by changing your diet.
It is true that there are a lot of negative people in the world. It would be best to stay away from them so that you only process positive thoughts. If you think positive all the time, you are going to forget about all of your problems. If negative situations occur in your life, you can accept that everything happens for a reason and there’s something better waiting for you around the corner.
You will stress less about your existing problems if you keep yourself busy with things you enjoy doing, even if it is just a few times a week, you always need that balance. If you are bored and feel like giving back would make you happy, you can volunteer for charity organizations. I know at Sad to Smiles, it makes us extremely happy, putting a smile on another person’s face and solving other peoples problems.
That’s just a few proven approaches you can implement in your life that will help you massively reduce your stress & anxiety levels, rid you from anxiety attacks and allow you to experience a better quality of life. I do not mean to say you should look forward to anxiety attacks but look forward to a better day.
Try some of these methods and MAKE SURE to research more, never just trust one place of information on sensitive things such as your health and wellbeing. If the internet and making changes like those I’ve mentioned above do not help you, or you truly believe you cannot do this on your own, PLEASE seek professional help from your doctor or therapist.
