What can you do to ease your symptoms of anxiety?
GAD could be managed with proper treatments. There are also many ways that you could help yourself to ease your symptoms.
Having support from other people is vital, so build a strong support system. Practicing relaxation techniques like meditation, deep breathing or progressive muscle relaxation will slow your heart rate, help you breathe slower, relax your muscles and stabilize your blood pressure. Exercise helps boost hormones like serotonin and endorphin and reduce stress hormones. Avoid caffeine, smoking and drinking as they can make you more anxious than usual. Last but not least, getting enough sleep and having a balanced diet is essential to ease your symptoms.

I can't even find strong enough words to properly portray how much Anxiety used to cause me to fear everyday life and social interactions😬. •
I physically, mentally and emotionally was running on empty because I exhausted myself just hiding and making up excuses for not showing up in my own life😥. •
I let myself down, I let others down and my anxiety quickly added depression to my struggles😭. I was tired all the time, so afraid to say yes to anything, horrified when the phone or doorbell would ring just at the thought of having to socialize📣. My life felt impossible🚫. •
Rock bottom was my saving grace🙏. I realized I had a choice: remain the SAME and keep getting the same results OR give kicking anxiety's ass a shot! I made the decision to go ALL IN and ignite full ANXIETY SLAYING MODE🏋️♀️. •
Knowledge + Experience = A powerful force to be reckoned with! Not only have I learned to effectively manage my anxiety but I have been able to heal the root causes of so many of my limited beliefs that actually were FUELING my anxiety in the first place🤹♀️! •
