Anxiety generally comes from not having enough information about a situation that is yet to come. Here are some tips on how to reduce anxiety without taking medication or illegal drugs.
This sounds simple, but is a little more complicated than at first glance.
Don't make a list on everything you are anxious about. Instead make a list about one thing you are anxious about. Example, if you have upcoming exams, make a list about the things you are anxious about.
* I might fail
* I did not study the section on trigonometry
* I might forget everything I studied
* My parents will be really mad if I fail
Once you have a list of the things, as in the example above, you will realize that there are 2 major things.
* I did not study
* I might forget everything
To remove anxiety and regain confidence, you now need to study the part you do not know. Even if its surface level.
Coffee is super fantastic.
But it's one of the things that cause a lot of anxiety. So does strong tea too. So in periods of anxiety, eliminate those two things from your diet.
You should probably stop taking any energy drinks or other substances that contain caffeine.
Remember when you were young and watched the monster movie? It was really scary when you did not see the monster. That's actually anxiety and fear of the monster.
Once the big monster reveal happened, your anxiety more or less would go away.
It's the same thing with your life.
Your anxiety is a result of not having enough information. Sit down and learn. Go to Google. Educate yourself. It will help a lot.
Sometimes no matter how much you learn about something, your brain has a disorder itself and you have to be treated for it. Some disorders include:
* Generalized anxiety disorder
* Panic attacks
* Specific phobia (fear of heights, fear of outdoors)
* Separation anxiety
In my experience, chewing on some fresh ginger actually reduces anxiety dramatically.
A lot of the feeling of anxiety is the generation of stomach acids. Ginger helps to neutralize them and the psychosomatic parts of the feeling itself will disappear quite quickly.
Get over yourself and the sharp taste of ginger because this natural herb is quite magical.
To reduce or eliminate anxiety
* Figure out what you are anxious about
* Learn as much as you can so you no longer worry about the anxiety
* Eat some ginger
