Anxiety disorders can sometimes require medication to help to ease it, but not always. There are some regular practices that can help to ease your anxiety without medication as well as some natural alternatives to harsh anxiety medications.
Develop healthy routines
Order and routine is the number one enemy to anxiety disorders. The simple act of developing a healthy daily routine can help to establish order in your life and ease your anxiety.
Talk about your concerns
Anxiety disorders feed off your uncertainty and fear. The more you talk about your concerns and fears the better you’ll feel. Outsider perspective can also help you to see that there isn’t a source for your fear and help to calm you down.
Limit caffeine and other stimulants
Caffeine can make your anxiety worse, as can putting yourself in situations that make you anxious. Avoiding loud, overly stimulating situations like parties or concerts can help.
Get more sleep
Lacking the necessary amount of sleep can cause anxiety conditions to worsen. If you find yourself unable to sleep, limit caffeine, television or radio, lights, and busy patterns. A calm, quiet environment can help keep your anxiety at bay and allow you to get some much-needed sleep.
