 10. Try meditation

Meditation has been proven time and again to be a very good stress reliever. This century old Buddhist practice is very effective in the treatment of anxiety and is now a mainstream therapy. This practice is the best as it will enable you to experience mindful awareness and will allow you to experience the true essence of each moment as it occurs rather than what one is expecting or fearing.  You can simply begin by paying attention to the present moment intentionally and with curiosity and with an effort to attend without any judgment.

This is also the perfect time to throw in a bit of yoga to also help you relax, clear your mind and connect with your inner being. This is also because yoga has been found to have tremendous results on one’s emotional and physical well being. This is because yoga will help in regulating your body’s stress response systems while decreasing physiological responses to stress such as short rapid breathing, a racing heart as well as high blood pressure.

In one study where subjects underwent yoga and another one which did not, notable results were found between these groups. In the first group which had undergone yoga, significant improvements in terms of their anxiety, depression levels, perceived stress and an overall improvement in their energy levels and an overall well being were noted. Back pains, insomnia and headaches were noted to have decreased among the target group unlike those who had not engaged in yoga.

For those of us who are socially awkward, this is a great chance for you to work on your social skills. Get out of your comfort zone and try to interact with other like-minded individuals and you are bound to experience less anxiety attacks. And so grab your mat and match on and join the rest of the world with this stress relieving exercise.

As you might have noticed, life is too short for you to worry about non-existent occurrences. You should simply, get out, take a walk and enjoy what life has to offer. If you feel like your current location is constricting and is posing danger to your sanity, consider relocating or visiting your folks in the country side where you can simply reconnect with nature.
