The stress we have endured over recent weeks has made us feel anxious. This week in particular is global Mental Health and Wellbeing week. The Mayo Clinic explains that anxiety can be brought on by a big event or a build-up of smaller stressful life events. Certain personality types are more susceptible than others to experience anxiety. Here are 5 helpful tips to identify and treat higher levels of anxiety. Dr. Nangrani is a board-certified medical doctor who believes in treating the whole individual. Vedas is your one-stop shop for your medical and aesthetic needs.
1. Monitor how you are feeling
Be mindful: anxiety is a part of life! The daily grind of work-life balance can take a toll. Adopt healthy de-stressing options like daily exercise and goal setting. They will help you combat feelings of stress and feeling overwhelmed. Set one goal per day, ‘a daily win!’ that you can achieve. Run a mile, read the book you received as a gift, or make that recipe from the magazine you just read. These goals can shift your mindset into a more positive space. Well-being is a state of mind.
2. How to treat anxiety, and when to seek professional help?
Anxiety and depression are treatable. If you don’t think your self-help methods are helping to get you into a more positive place, seek professional help. The solution may be straightforward: a change in diet, or a treatable hormone imbalance, for example. There is a myriad of resources to help you if you are suffering. The first step is to seek professional guidance. Unfortunately, eighty percent of children with diagnosed anxiety, and sixty percent with diagnosed depression are not getting treatment, according to the 2015 Child Mind Institutes’ mental health report.
3. Learn your triggers
Important! Be aware of the causes of stress that trigger your anxiety. Keep a journal to help you keep track of your daily routines, so you can learn how to break the cycle. A first step to breaking the cycle is to seek professional advice. Remember that you are not alone, and not the only person experiencing mental health challenges! What sets you off? Well-being is a life goal.
4. Eat a healthy diet
Dietary supplements and other micronutrients support your health as multi-vitamins, vitamins, minerals, and substances that your body may need.
