Anxiety is a problem that affects people everywhere. Going far beyond daily stress, it can be a problem that interferes with everything from work and family, to personal happiness. Luckily, there are plenty of ways (beyond therapy and pills) to beat anxiety. Here are 7 proven methods to beat anxiety.
#1 – Exercise
Add beating anxiety to the list of reasons why daily exercise is a must. Exercise, whether it’s a daily walk, a spinning class, or a ball game with friends, releases those “feel good” chemicals in the brain and also increases body temperature, which has calming effects.
Additionally, exercise can help to improve self-esteem and can also help relieve stress, which is often linked to anxiety. It’s a win-win-win situation.
