I'm here to share with you some ways to reduce occasional anxiety. Sometimes anxiety gets us and there seems no easy way to get rid of in a short amount of time. We want anxiety gone and we want it gone now! Did you know a little creativity in your day or night could banish it quickly? Nothing too hard, either. The following are a few ways to reduce occasional anxiety.
1. Get Involved in the Community
Go to local functions. Be a tourist in your own town, going to places you have never been to. This is one of the best ways to reduce occasional anxiety.
Whether at a homeless shelter, soup kitchen or school, get that mutual warm feeling.
3. Praise a Co-worker
Know someone at work that often gets overlooked? Think of it as a random act of kindness.
4. Be a Kid
Buy some adult coloring books and magic markers. These are known to reduce stress.
5. Lose Yourself in Some Music
Athletes call it being in the zone. Artists call it being in a flow. Dance in whatever movements come to you.
Just write whatever comes to mind, freeing up space in your mind. A poem, for example.
You just might find a nugget of wisdom.
8. Take a Siesta
60 to 90 minutes makes new connections in the brain. 30 to 60 minutes are good for decision-making.
There you have it! A little creativity is not hard. The above choices are basically mutual as not only are you helping yourself but the people around you will benefit. People will see you light up like a candle on one end and be positive instead of both ends, all stressed out and negative. Who wants to be around a party pooper all day, every day? Good luck!
