18. Find a new relaxation practice that works for you.
Specific stressors usually heighten anxiety levels. Many everyday stressors include uncertainty and instability. You may already have certain things that help you relax. That might consist of enjoying a cup of coffee in complete silence before you start your day or perhaps winding down at night with a good book. However, these times can call for new practices. When stressors throw your nervous system out of balance, certain relaxation practices can help shift your anxiety levels into a state of calmness. Many people have long supported relaxation techniques that include deep breathing, yoga, and meditation.
These methods have been said to help bring you back into a state of calmness and equilibrium. If these are not practices you already incorporate into your life, you may want to consider adding them into your new routine. The consistent approach has shown to bring the most significant benefits. Reach out to a loved one or friend that already partakes or utilize the internet. There are many videos and articles on how to begin these practices and complete them to bring a sense of tranquility and calm back into your daily life. Set aside a few minutes in the morning before tackling the stressors of the day. Likewise, you can use a few minutes at the end of the day before settling in for the night to relax.
