Engaging in simple practices such as meditation or deep breathing can be a huge help in effectively managing stress levels. Simply set aside time each day to participate in these stress-reducing activities in order to see optimal results.
- Anxiety in the ancient days was a chemical that when there was trouble would spur us to fight or flight, and help us make decisions.
- Nowadays the troubles we are faced with are not those we can exactly fight or run away from. They are in the form of work, relationships, and finances.
- In the worst case scenario, we might have a long term anxiety disorder and decide to self-medicate and treat them with short term solutions.
“A healthy amount of anxiety now and then is not so bad since it can motivate us to make decisions and solve problems, but too much can wind up really hurting us.”
