12 Ways to Ease Anxiety Naturally

A little bit of stress is common (and even tolerable) in daily life, but when it blossoms into more chronic anxiety, you may have a problem- and you may first want to seek out some ways to ease anxiety naturally. Stress is definitely not a feelgood emotion, so today we’ve got some tips from Andrea Bertoli over at Vibrant Wellness Journal on how to break up with your stress and ease into calmness.

Mind Body Green has some numbers for us: “Anxiety disorders affect about 40 million American adults, which is about 18% of the US adult population, with research suggesting that nearly 30% of American adults will qualify for an anxiety disorder diagnosis at some point in their lives.” The Mayo Clinic says that anxiety can express itself as different physical symptoms or as various types of anxiety in individuals. Their explanation of common anxiety signs and symptoms include both physical, mental and what could be called spiritual feelings:

  • Feeling nervous
  • Feeling powerless
  • Having a sense of impending danger, panic or doom
  • Having an increased heart rate
  • Breathing rapidly (hyperventilation)
  • Sweating
  • Trembling
  • Feeling weak or tired
  • Trouble concentrating or thinking about anything other than the present worry

They also note that many different types of anxiety disorders exist, including social disorder (social phobia, avoidance of social situations), panic disorder. . .    reader_3
