Natural Anxiety Relief

 

For many of us in the modern world, it almost seems like anxiety is our natural state of being. As a society, we have gotten used to feeling anxious so much of the time whether it be about work, family life, or the state of the planet. Of course, it isn’t natural at all.

Humans are not meant to be in a constant state of anxiety. This is why I’ve put together some natural anxiety relief tips …

 

Exercise in nature

 

It has been shown that exercise can lower levels of stress and anxiety. It has also been found that simply being outdoors surrounded by nature can lower stress levels not to mention blood pressure, and boost your sense of wellbeing. So, why not combine the two and make an effort to exercise outdoors as often as possible? By doing so you will not only see your anxieties melt away, but you will also get fitter, breathe more fresh air, and have more fun.

 

Work on Emotional Balance

 

Essential oils

 

If you’re feeling extremely anxious right now, it may be worth seeing a holistic health coach who can teach you how to use essential oils. Many people find that taking in scents like lavender and sandalwood can have a very positive effect on their mental health, and as long as you use carrier oils as erected and avoid using them if you have any allergies, they are a completely safe and natural solution to the issues you are facing. They also smell amazing, so having them diffused around your home can be very satisfying.

 

Write a journal

 

When you’re anxious, you probably have a lot of stuff turning around in your head. You might be worried about your finances or brooding about a failed romance, for example. This is really not good for your mental health, and will only serve to make matters worse. So, before you go to bed each night, take out a journal and write all of those thoughts down. By getting them out of your head, you can stop worrying about them so much, get a good night’s sleep, and wake up less anxious.

 

CBD

 

CBD is a natural remedy for stress and anxiety. Unlike cannabis, it will not get you high. However,  it will work on your nervous system to calm you down and get you feeling less anxious. It’s legal in many areas and readily available in dispensaries, health food stores and similar. Do your research to see if it is right for you.

 

Play with a pet

 

Spending time with animals has been scientifically proven to lower blood pressure, relieve stress and anxiety, boost mood and even reduce heart attack risk amongst other things. Animals are cute, cuddly, and one of the best things you can do for your health, so be sure to spend some time playing and petting a dog, cat, or even hamster if you want to see your anxieties drain away.

 

Anxiety doesn’t need to be a part of your life!

  1. I have suffered from anxiety all my life, and meditation is something which works really well for me with breathing exercises. Thankyou for sharing this important post

  2. I find essential oils work really well for my anxious son. I let him pick a few of his favorites, and made sure to include Lavendar in it, and we made his own roller ball recipe. Whenever he feels the anxiety, he just rolls a bit on and starts to feel better.

    1. Thank you so much for sharing your practice. This can be helpful in so many ways as it helps others to do the same. Interestingly, the rollerball itself is likely helping your son to feel less anxious because of the tactile stimulation and reminder to calm.
