Anxiety is a natural human experience which can become overwhelming without the right coping skills. Here are six ways to cope with anxiety naturally, as a normal part of life.
Look at more than your screen: Did you know that there is a blue light behind the screen of your phone that’s supposed to mimic daylight? Staring at your screen too much actually stimulates your brain, which can be problematic when you’re living with anxiety. Take time to look away from your phone and your computer so that your brain has a chance to reset itself.
Practice Mindfulness: Mindfulness is a form of meditation but it is also separate from meditation. The practice of mindfulness includes noticing your thoughts, becoming aware of your feelings, and learning to pay attention, without judgement. Mindfulness calms down the sympathetic nervous system, which can play a role in anxiety.
