7 Tips For Anxiety Relief

Here is a summary of the the 7 strategies about how to reduce anxiety:

1) Learn How To Relax and Prioritise It

Set aside ten minute a day to do nothing but relax. The more you relax the more you can and will relax. You can use my free anxiety relief audio to help you relax mentally and physically.

2) Use Your Breathing

When you feel anxious your breathing gets faster and shallower as your body gets ready for action – to fight something or run away from something. You can reverse this by extending your out breath so that it is longer than your in breath.

The most effective way to do this is to breathe in for a count of 7 and out for a count 11 several times. Take the time to practice this so that it becomes simple to use it whenever you choose.

3) Take Control Over Your Imagination

If you are running worst case, anxious scenarios in your mind then start taking control over how you think – send the images into the distance in your mind, make them smaller, turn them black and white and keep changing to dilute the anxiety.

4) Be Active

Find time to be active every day whether that is exercising or just going for a ten minute walk. Anxiety gets you ready for action so find a physical outlet for all that adrenaline and tension. Do this every day and you’ll start feeling better quickly.

5) Calm Your Inner Self Talk

Instead of talking to yourself in a panicky way, or self critical way, start calming your inner self talk. The way you talk to yourself has more impact than what you are saying to yourself. So instead of talking quickly and in an anxious tone in your mind, start calming that voice down.

6) Use Your Thinking Brain

When anxiety takes hold, we become ruled by our feelings and emotions and lose the ability to think straight and think clearly. We are designed to take action to avoid threat and danger and think later (rather than stop and think about doing something about the imminent danger).

So you need to get your thinking brain fired back up into action – an effective way to do this is to use numbers, so start counting backwards from 300 in 3s in your head. Do this for a minute or two and you will soon find your anxiety begins to ebb and fade.

7) Get a Wider Focus

Anxiety feeds itself more and more, so the more anxious you feel the more your mind is filled with all those thoughts which in turn fuels more feelings of anxiety. It can become easy to fall into the trap of thinking you are anxious all the time about everything.

Yet most days have some moments where things go ok or you feel better. Maybe you got something done, went through an event and it went ok or someone made you smile. Whatever those good moments, you can add some positive cracks into the wall of your anxiety by anticipating them and reflecting on them.

So every morning think of three things you are looking forward to that day, however big or small, and every night think of three things that went well that day. Start to notice the things that are ok or that go well.

  1. Anxiety is such a horrible thing to have to deal with. My family has a history of not being able to control our anxiety and stress. I like that you talked about being active and how that can help you overcome that stuff. It would be smart to have a professional help you get through really terrible stress.

  2. Georgia B says:

    I really appreciate your tip on calming your inner self-talk. I think this is the thing I struggle with most when I start to feel anxiety. It would really help to learn how to resist the urge to overthink things and calm down my mental process a little in those situations.
