Chronic Anxiety can negatively impact your overall quality of life, discouraging you from enjoying activities that you previously enjoyed, forming social connections, and hindering your personal growth. Anxiety can take on many forms, like PTSD and Social Anxiety. Here are some activities that may help you address feelings of Anxiety in your daily lives:
- Regular Exercise
Exercise and activity stimulate neurotransmitters in the brain, including those that enhance mood and relieve stress and Anxiety, like dopamine and serotonin. Physical activity is also a great distraction from overwhelming thoughts and emotions. We also offer treatment at our Brain Treatment Clinic in Ohio to help you address feelings of Anxiety and Depression.
- Read a Book
A Brain Evaluation of those who regularly read shows that reading is a great stress reliever, helping address feelings of Anxiety and Depression. Reading also provides you with an active choice to direct your attention elsewhere, for example, getting lost in a positive or captivating story.
- Breathing Exercises
When you feel anxious, your heart rate and breathing can become faster, causing you to sweat or feel dizzy, further aggravating your Anxiety. Breathing exercises can help you calm down, direct your attention elsewhere, and reduce uncomfortable physical manifestations of Anxiety.
