Anxiety is something that anyone can succumb to during their life. In fact, in America, anxiety disorders are among one of the most common disorders people battle. Here at OIAH, we are committed to a holistic and healthy lifestyle, so we have compiled a few holistic alternatives to combat every day anxiety:
1. Exercise – Exercise is an easy way to combat anxiety. Fitness experts recommend spending at least 30 min working out minimum to get you heart rate up. Working out on a regular basis promotes higher self-esteem and also helps you feel healthier.
2. Lavender – This herb is widely known to be used for its relaxing and calming properties. It can be used in the form of oil, lotion or even a candle. But many studies have proven when a person smell lavender within 5 min, stress levels are reduced.
3. Meditation – Mediation is derived from a Buddhist practice but has now evolved into a mainstream method of reducing anxiety. The act of practicing mindful awareness allows you to experience the true.
Try any one of these methods the next time you’re feeling anxious and you’ll be amazed how effective they can be!
