Diet, Exercise and Herbs for Anxiety All to Help Reduce Stress and Anxiety!

So many people now-a-days are suffering from stress and anxiety disorders and things don’t look like they are going to get any better. Here we are going to look into ways you can change so that you can not only cope with stress and anxiety, but over come it too. Here is a clue it is not just using herbs for anxiety.

There are a multitude of causes of stress and anxiety, not only from person to person, but also through different periods in our lives. Many of us have found times were it is work that is causing us stress, or maybe financial worries will bring on anxiety attacks as we struggle to make ends meet. One of the biggest causes of stress and anxiety is in our relationships, which are guaranteed to never run smoothly all of the time.

We can probably put the causes of stress and anxiety into two groups. Firstly, external forces, making demands on us for which we may feel unprepared to cope with or secondly, changes to our lives, which can mean major upheaval such as moving house or separation and divorce. An illness or loss of a loved one can also have a devastating effect upon our emotional wellbeing.

If you do not make some changes in your life style to help deal with the causes of your stress and anxiety, than using herbs for anxiety will only act as a temporary aid.

You will need to look at and take action in the following areas if you truly want to get control of your stress and anxiety.

1. Choosing a healthy diet.

When we talk about healthy diet we are not talking about weight loss although that may be a happy side effect. What you are concerned with here is a well balanced diet which includes a full range of vitamins and mineral. You want to avoid too much tea and coffee as well as alcohol. Try to cook fresh food rather than prepackaged and processed foods and definitely avoid your local take away.

2. Make sure you get enough exercise.

Yes, you have heard this before, taking exercise will not only improve your physical health, but also your mental wellbeing. The thing is that is true, but so many don’t do physical exercise because they believe it needs to be growling or consume too much time. Although some effort is required (would not be exercise otherwise) it can be simply incorporated into your life. Take the stairs whenever possible, walk instead of catching the bus, actually go swimming with the kids, make love with your partner more.

3. Medication or alternative remedies.

If you are suffering from stress and anxiety for a long period of time, especially if it has reached the stage of being a disorder, it is always wise to seek the help of your medical practitioner. You may want to ask about alternatives such as St. John’s wort or Valerian tea rather than going onto proscribed medication some of which can be addictive. Hopefully your doctor will support your efforts to overcome your stress and anxiety using more natural means.

4. Getting the support you need.

Do not underestimate the value to your recovery when it comes to having support around you to help you with your stress and anxiety. Including your medical practitioner and maybe an herbal anxiety specialist, your support team will be there for you when you are struggling to keep your recovery on track. Try choosing a wide range of personalities as you will need different things at different times. Those who love you will be glad to help and will not feel burdened if you spread your needs around.

So hopefully now you can see that when it comes to dealing with stress and anxiety, you can not only benefit from using herbs for anxiety, but also controlling your diet, doing exercise and building a support team. All these combined should not only help you cope with or even overcome your current state of anxiety, but also help your prevent any major problems with stress and anxiety in the future.
