Do you also quickly get caught in a loop of constant worries, which makes you ultimately exhausted? And then, do you ever use what self-help techniques to overcoming anxiety? Your acquaintances often say to you that you have to relax, but you can not do it. Such and other otherwise benevolent tips do not help you.
Others cannot understand your fears or take care of things to make it easier for you.
We want you to find the tips below to help you cope with feelings of anxiety.
Techniques to Overcoming Anxiety
Stay in the Current Moment.
Do you have to solve the situation at this moment? If so, then go to the action and take care of things. But if this moment cannot do anything, then do not deal too much with the situation. Ask yourself, how much cost you your feelings of anxiety and constant worry? How many fun things did you miss just because you can not shake off constant concern?
Take Time to Have Fun.
Yes, you read it right. Entertainment must be on the priority list with anxious people. People who are always worried, take a little time to have fun. So start now, this moment. Write down a list of five activities that will make you happy and make sure that you will get started each week at least three events.
What Are Your Assumptions?
Because of feelings of anxiety, people often can not differentiate between what is right and what is not. Your task is to take your assumptions under the scrutiny. If there is a problem, you can quickly solve it. If, however, it is all the result of your premises, or it is not at all a serious problem, then try to get it all out and devote yourself to things that need your attention.
You Need to Draw the Line.
Feelings of anxiety do not know the boundaries. They are like a book with no chapters, paragraphs, and sentences. The cycle of constant worries does not end, and you are increasingly tired.
That’s why we lay you on the heart to always say what you have to say, do what you have to do, think about what you have to think about, then stop! Pull the line. Then come back to life and live it, but worry, put it aside. And try to learn as much as possible about self-help techniques to overcome anxiety.
Listen to Music.
Perhaps you do not seem to be able to put all the tips into practice. Naturally, it is difficult, but it is not impossible. And in doing so, music can be of great help. Listen to the music you love. It will help you.
In my opinion, the tea has a significant impact when we speak about the self-help techniques to overcoming anxiety. So I’m going to add to this chapter a few more words.
Relaxing Tea Bath
Try to take time once a week for a relaxing bath that will pamper your spirit and body. Make sure that the bathroom is pleasantly warm, replace the lights with candles, and turn the soothing music to your liking. Wash with a mild or gentle shower gel before you immerse yourself in the bath. Pour in so much water in the tub so that the body is completely covered and the temperature should be such that you will feel comfortable after 15 minutes.
Do not mix the water with classic sparkling baths or shower gels that usually dry out the skin and do not help to relax. Pour into a tub liter of tea prepared from 5 tablespoons of dried lavender, five tablespoons of the dried flower of roses and three spoons of balm. Add water to the slices of sliced oranges, which will soften the skin with fruit acids, and with the scent, they will contribute to even more fragrant December. After the bath, you can take a nap as long as you think you need.
Tea for Calming: Valerian, Balm, Chamomile, Peppermint
Among the most effective soothing and mildly sleeping herbs are the roots of valerian. Valerian (Valeriana officinalis) helps to eliminate nervous tension, irritation, emotional and physical anxiety, plainness and calms the restless heartbeat.
Mix well-prepared herbs and store them in a sealed container in the dark. When we have a busy day behind and want to relax, make tea from one spoonful of tea blend, pour over three dl of water and leave it standing for 10 minutes. For preventative reasons, tea is not recommended for pregnant women.

A Few More Words About St. John’s Wort – Herbal Sedative and Antidepressant
St John’s wort (Hypericum perforatum) is one of the more researched herbs, which proves its effectiveness in numerous clinical studies. It is excellent for calming and for alleviating milder depressive conditions. Most of the active ingredients are found in flowers and leaves, so they are also used in tea and tea blends. Especially recommended is the enjoyment of those who are more restless, more tired and voluptuous in winter, when the days are shorter and lacking in light – the first effects of regular consumption and improvement of well-being usually arise after two weeks.
Tea from St John’s wort can be prepared in the morning and/or in the evening. Put one teaspoon of dried leaves and flowers in a cup of hot water and leave to stand for 10 minutes. The tea has a better taste with a spoon of honey. If you choose to enjoy tea from St. John’s wort, we recommend a 4-6 week enjoyment, which should be in winter.
