15. Listen to music.
Anxiety is associated with brain waves that get to running outside of their standard patterns. Furthermore, do you know what can reset those brain waves and get them flowing in a more welcoming, calm, and relaxed manner? Music. If you are a fan of classical music, you are in luck here because classical music can slow your anxious brain waves down within minutes. You will immediately begin to feel calmer, less stressed, and more focused.
But just about any kind of music can have a similar effect. While we wouldn’t recommend prolonged dosages of death metal if you are trying to calm your mind down, the rhythms and intonations of everything from country music to soft rock can help induce a calmer mood. When you are on the commute to work, turn off the radio talk show and turn on some music instead. You will arrive at the office more focused and ready to take on the day. Try listening to classical music or even soundtracks designed to improve your brain-wave function while you are in the shower or while you are asleep. You will notice a difference right away.
