10 Ways to Feel Less Anxious in 2018

posted by Kat -

While anxiety can be crippling, there are ways to take your power back  and control it. With that in mind, Elite Daily has compiled a list of 10  tricks that might help you feel less anxious in 2018. Here they are:

  • Meditation. According to Psychology Today,  "Beneficial physiological effects of meditation include decreased  oxygen consumption, respiratory rate, and blood pressure, as well as  long-term beneficial changes in brain electrical activity that result in  increased calmness."
  • Focus on the present. Stay present and take things literally one hour, or even one minute, at a time. 
  • Change the way you think about your anxiety. During a panic attack, try to create some space to talk to yourself about what is actually happening. 
  • Practice visualization techniques. Learn to visualize a time and place where you felt zero stress and anxiety and hold it in your mind. 
  • Accept that you’re feeling anxious. There is no shame in battling anxiety, and accepting that you feel anxious can actually take away some of its power.
  • Write down things you feel anxious about. Writing out your feelings has been found to reduce anxiety, depression and even chronic pain.
  • Make self-care a priority. Take back your power by carving out time to get enough sleep, making sure you eat and creating some space to relax. 
  • Move your body. Moving your body can help quiet your mind.
  • Turn to technology.  While technology is known to be a factor in inducing anxiety, there are  some wearables that can detect physical signs of anxiety before you're  aware of it mentally. 
  • Laugh more. If you commit to laughing more, even when you don't feel like it, you can reduce your anxiety.
