7 Practical Ways to Battle Anxiety and Stress

According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, 6.8 million Americans battle anxiety. Unfortunately, less than 50% of those dealing with anxiety receive medical care for their illness. If you are dealing with anxiety, please, seek the medical attention of a healthcare professional. However, there are also some steps you can take in your daily life to help calm your nerves during particularly stressful moments where you feel like your anxiety is overtaking you.

Making Time to Exercise

It may seem counterintuitive but putting physical stress on your body has been proven to help alleviate mental and emotional stress that you’re experiencing. According to scientists, people who regularly exercise experience anxiety less frequently than people who are largely inactive. Cortisol, which is a stress hormone lessens when you exercise. That’s because exercise releases endorphins into the same area of the brain. Endorphins are naturally occurring chemicals in the body that improve mood and act as the body’s natural pain killers. Additionally, working out can help you sleep better and increases your confidence, both of which have a natural impact on the amount of anxiety and stress that you feel.
