Health experts say that while some of us may not be able to do the things we want to do in the moment, it’s crucial to stay active, to stay hydrated and to have a routine.
They also say it’s important to take care of your body.
But what happens when we’re stressed and need to calm down?
It can be challenging to find answers.
The Hill reports that at least some experts believe that some anxiety is a natural part of being a human being.
Some of us might experience anxiety because of the challenges we face, they say.
Others might feel it because they’re experiencing a loss of confidence or that they’re feeling overwhelmed.
If you’re experiencing anxiety, here are a few things you can do to manage it: 1.
Learn to calm yourself down.
The first step to feeling calmer is to recognize that you’re having an anxiety disorder, said Dr. Daniel Fishel, a clinical professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Northwestern University.
You need to recognize what it is you’re feeling and what it could be, he said.
And it’s essential that you do that within your own mind.
He added that if you’re already feeling anxious, you might be able take a step back and think about your thoughts.
Then, you can move onto a calming exercise, such as listening to music or yoga, or even talking with someone who can help you calm down.
For example, Dr. Fissel said, it might be helpful to do a silent breathing exercise to help calm your body down.
You can also talk to a friend or therapist about what you might need to do. 2.
Try to be aware of what’s going on around you.
For some people, such feelings may feel overwhelming.
For others, it can feel like their mind is going on for days and not knowing what to do, Fishe said.
When you’re in that state, it may be helpful for you to have some kind of reminder.
This can include putting something on your desk or using an alarm clock.
If possible, you could also ask yourself if you feel overwhelmed.
You may also need to consider taking steps to lessen your stress.
For instance, if you have a family member who’s suffering from a mental illness, ask them to talk to someone who’s experienced the same kind of anxiety.
This might help calm you down, said Fisher.
Work on your coping skills.
You might be overwhelmed by the stress you’re facing, Fshel said.
You should also find ways to help yourself calm down and avoid certain triggers.
Fshe suggests that you try to find ways of helping yourself feel calmer by taking deep breaths or putting your hands on your stomach and shoulders.
Or you can sit in a chair, and ask yourself how you feel, Feshel said, adding that it’s also important to remember that it may take time for your body to adjust.
Find a way to manage stress.
You don’t have to avoid stressful situations or get stressed out to have better coping skills, Foshel said: “We’re talking about stress in a context where you’re dealing with a lot of things at once.”
This can lead to anxiety.
And for some people with anxiety, it could take a lot to calm them down.
But Fsher said it’s not a problem to go on autopilot and ignore stressors.
And he added that you don’t necessarily need to ignore your body’s natural processes or emotions.
“It’s all about you,” Fiswell said.
