3 Tips for Getting Anxiety Under Control

By Genevieve Cunningham

Anxiety is a huge problem for people of all ages. While a bit of worry is normal, anxiety takes it to the next level. It causes severe stress, a fast heart rate, sweating, headaches, and even panic attacks. And while some cases of anxiety are so severe that they need medication, others simply need a plan to manage the excess stress. If you need a little help getting your anxiety under control, take a look at these effective tips.

Get Enough Sleep

Anxiety is far worse when exhaustion is at play, especially when there is zero relief from the fatigue. If you want to get your anxiety under control, you need to get a solid eight hours of sleep per night. How? Start by getting a bedtime as well as a wind down routine. Next, make sure that your sleeping arrangements are comfortable -- cool, dark, and cozy. When you start to get more sleep on a regular basis, you may notice that your anxiety lets up a little on its own.

Learn to Let Go

It’s easier said than done, but it’s also crucial for long-term wellness. You simply cannot control everything that happens in life. The only thing that you can control is how you react to various situations. Learn to count to five, take deep breaths, and take a quick timeout before you react. And then remind yourself that sometimes there’s nothing you can do. Sometimes relinquishing control is a big step in diminishing anxiety on a constant basis.

Talk It Out

Whether it’s with a parent, a best friend, or a professional, talking about your worries and getting some outside advice is a huge step in the right direction. Others may be able to give you a perspective that you can’t see. Or they may have an alternative way of dealing with a situation that you haven’t thought about yet. Talk to someone who can help or even someone who will just listen, and your load will feel lighter almost immediately.

Anxiety can control your life if you allow it to flourish. But luckily, you don’t have to give it any more air. Use these tips to reduce your anxiety, or hopefully, nip it in the bud completely. Living with less anxiety will prove a happier, healthier, and more stable life for you to enjoy.
