Anxiety is something we all have experienced at some point in our life. Rapid breathing, mouth drying up, excessive sweating, hands shaking… everything seems to blur around us. Thoughts come to us so quickly that it becomes difficult to keep track of them. Experiencing occasional anxiety is very normal for people. It’s when the anxiety becomes frequent and gives birth to excessive worry and crippling fear about everyday situations, it becomes a serious issue as stated by Qreshi.
We all seem to have these moments where we fear things without real, concrete facts. These fears are solely based on our own internal thoughts of what we perceive the outcome of a situation will be.
If you are reading this, you are not alone! Everyone has experienced what we all know as anxiety at some point in our lives…
Qreshi believes that in order to overcome the anxiety that you’re experiencing, you need to understand what thoughts and feelings about the future is causing the anxiety.
7 Ways to Overcome Anxiety
Keep in mind that anxiety is not something that you overcome once in your lifetime. Anxiety is a natural emotion that we will feel many times throughout our lives, but these tips can help you manage anxiety effectively. According to Qreshi, there are some effective tips to overcome anxiety which are the following:
- ACCEPT THE ANXIETY
Anxiety has to do with wanting to control the future. Whether you feel you are dealing with normal bouts of anxiety or are struggling with an ongoing battle to control your anxiety, the first thing you have to do is to STOP trying to control the anxiety!
It may seem counterintuitive but trying to stop and fight the emotions brought on by anxiety only makes matters worse!
By actively thinking about wanting to stop it, you are actually increasing your anxiety!
Don’t try to control or resist your anxiety.
Instead, you have to breathe, relax, and simply accept these uncomfortable feelings.
The more you allow yourself to let the anxiety pass by, the more likely you are to regain control of yourself again. There are many techniques to overcome this response that can be unlocked in John Qreshi’s mentor program.
- Do Yoga
Yoga is not only an exercise that increases strength and flexibility.
It is also an amazing practice that nurtures your mind and soul.
Yoga really aligns the mind, body, and soul, and even helps with anxiety.
Research shows that yoga reduces the stress responses of the body, which can help alleviate anxiety and depression.
- Breathe the Proper Way
Exhale through your mouth first and then inhale through your nose.
Many times, I have seen people try to practice breathing exercises to only feel more fatigued, especially since they are already nervous and breathing frantically, which leads them feeling even more out of breath.
You should never just try taking a deep breath in, without giving yourself an opportunity to exhale.
Exhaling first will allow you to get a whole breath in and fill your lungs more successfully.
Another helpful tip is to breathe into your stomach. It helps if you think of your stomach like a balloon. Imagine you’re inflating your stomach with a deep, low breath. Just remember to exhale first and then take a nice, deep breath.
- Bring Awareness to Your Thoughts (Consciousness = Awareness)
Make sure you are able to identify the thoughts and feelings that you’re experiencing.
Be mindful of your thoughts and bring awareness to your thoughts.
Mindfulness requires you to be present in the moment and allows you to process how you are feeling and thinking in an objective manner.
Mindfulness is all about being one with your body, environment, and yourself.
Mindfulness also becomes useful in practicing meditation to reduce anxiety by allowing you to quiet your mind. If you can bring yourself to a state of awareness in a moment that you’re experiencing anxiety, you will be able to process your thoughts in a healthier way
- Engage Your Senses
Engaging your senses is also an effective way to overcome anxiety.
Engaging your sense of smell is a great way to ease your anxiety because smell is strongly tied to emotions.
You can use a diffuser or a pot of boiling water and add some essential oils to calm your nerves. Try smelling scents such as lavender, vanilla, frankincense, jasmine, and basil to ease your anxiety.
You can also listen to music that will ease your anxiety. Try listening to instrumental music, nature sounds (ex. ocean waves, rainforest, rain falling, etc.), or soothing music, for example, “spa” type music. You can easily access this music for free on Pandora, Spotify, or YouTube.
- Use Positive Imagery
You can also ease anxiety by focusing on an image that brings you peace.
Imagery is very important when dealing with anxiety.
Positive images send feelings of euphoria to our brains, which in turn, helps calm our nerves.
Simply close your eyes and visualize positive imagery that brings you joy. Be sure to paint a vivid mental picture.
- Take Control of Your Schedule
Create a schedule and routine that is healthy that gives you a sense of control.
Many of us pack on way too many things in our daily lives.
Instead of feeling productive we end up feeling depleted and overwhelmed.
Try creating a schedule that sets priorities and allows you to have freedom in between to set time for yourself.
Just as people should make savings a part of their expenses to ensure they save, you have to plan to take time for yourself to ensure you stick with it throughout the day.
While anxiety symptoms vary widely, odds are good that at some point you’ve experienced occasional physical and emotional distress signals such as panicky breathing, your heart pounding in your chest, trouble sleeping, feelings of dread, or even loops of worry. That’s normal.
“By itself, anxiety isn’t a problem but the symptom of the pain problem” stated by Qreshi. It anchors the protective biological response to danger that boosts heartbeat and breathing, pumping oxygenated blood to your muscles as your body prepares to fight or flee. A dollop of healthy anxiety can persuade you to get to work on time, push you to study hard for an exam, or discourage you from wandering dark streets alone.
Quality of life suffers, too. Intrusive thoughts, dread of panic attacks, intense self-consciousness and fear of rejection, and other hallmarks of anxiety disorders compel people to avoid anxiety-provoking situations. This interferes with relationships, work, school, and activities as people isolate themselves, turn down opportunities, and forgo possible joys in life.
Anxiety does not empty tomorrow of its sorrows, but only empties today of its strength… Go easy on yourself and conquer your fears.
