How to Control Anxiety Naturally

control anxietyWith text messages, Facebook and other daily distractions of everyday life it’s easy to feel stressed and anxious. The good news is it doesn’t have to be this way. You can control your stress and anxiety by using the following natural remedies and simple anxiety relaxation techniques.

1. Say no to soda and coffee and yes to water. A recent study from Duke University Medical Center has found that caffeine causes anxiety. Caffeine makes the body release stress hormones and changes how you see the world.

2. Use essential oils to enhance your mood and reduce anxiety. Inhaling essential oils such as lavender, chamomile, and lemon is a powerful way to enhance your well-being. You can keep them anywhere for use throughout the day.

3. Sprinkle herbs on your food. Herbs also affect emotions, so adding herbs like cardamom to your food can help reduce your stress and anxiety. Lemon balm helps increase your calmness and alertness. You can also use holy (part of the mint family) to reduce your anxiety. Keep a couple of small bottles of herbs with you to sprinkle on your food if you go out to eat.

4. Use herbal teas to soothe your mind. This will help you avoid the stress and anxiety that comes with coffee and sodas. Native Americans used Passionflower for its medicinal properties, and it’s a strong anxiety reducer. Another popular choice is chamomile tea because it helps you relax and decreases anxiety. One final choice is green tea because it helps sooth the nerves.

5. Keep stress relieving objects in your car or at your desk. Stress balls are good for your drive and small Zen gardens are good for your desk. Raking sand, organizing stones, and shaping the gardens clears the mind. Another popular option for your desk is Newton’s cradles which offer a lot more than the study of the law of conservation of momentum. They also help you relax and improve your focus.

These natural remedies and simple anxiety relaxation techniques can be used anywhere and anytime. Next time you feel anxious use them to calm your nerves and lighten your mood.

That’s it! Now keep an eye out for your next anxiety reducing tip.
