Best Practices for Worry and Anxiety

Best Practices for Worry and Anxiety

If you struggle a great deal with anxiety, you’ll often experience serious chemical disturbances due to an increase in adrenaline, cortisol, and related hormones. Here are the best practices for worry and anxiety, plus what to reduce and eliminate allow your body and mind to heal.

If you are feeling anxiety and overwhelmed:

· Ask yourself and write in your journal, “What am I worried about? What do I need to do? Is there anything I can do?”

· Consciously complain

· Breathe in lavender oil

· Tap or rub thymus

· Imagine a grounding cord into the earth to be transmuted

Best Practices

  • Rest
  • Contact with nature
  • Restorative nutrition (adrenal and hormonal disturbances can trigger food allergies and eating disorders)
  • Calming exercise like yoga, tai, chi, walking in nature and swimming – to restore your balance
  • Moving meditation, calming movement seems to be more healing than stillness for anxiety-prone people
  • Conscious complaining – if you complain loudly and vociferously about something, you won’t have to worry about it anymore
  • Connect yourself to the earth, pour your anxiety into your personal space and strengthen your boundary

Reduce and Eliminate

  • Stimulants (coffee, tea, sugar, chocolate, herbal energy-boosters, diet pills, excessive exercise, excessive sex, etc)
  • Fasting – juice and water fasting are too depleting and ungrounding
  • Certain forms of stillness and mindfulness meditation can increase anxiety in some individuals
