Anxiety Needs Relaxation

Anxiety Needs Relaxation

 ~Carmen Schwartz

You can roll your eyes…you can shrug things off…but your mind is always working and is always anxious about something. Whether it be something as simple as showing up on time for a meeting, or the more difficult aspects of life that come in the form of, well, life: family, friends, career, children – all the day-to-day worries that become major worries in seconds.

This is anxiety. This is apprehension. This is the formula for hurting the mind, which then hurts the body. Fitness and relaxation are wonderful things, but there are some out there who can not seem to ‘come down’ from the major worries that are all around them. We all have dread and nightmares – yes, even the most positive and upbeat can have a bad day, or a sleepless night. And the anxiety that comes naturally with life can increase heart rate, sleeping problems, depression, anger and more. Which is why the relaxation techniques in this world should never be put off with a shrug of indifference.

xistPhysical and emotional responses need to be treated. Doctors, the medical community, have all gotten together and stated this more than once. They talk to everyone in the confines of their offices about calming down, although even they know that life will not be calm 24/7. This is why there are many techniques recommended for people to try in order to calm down and protect both their minds and their hearts.

Some go with physical fitness. They release the pain and annoyance at the gym as they work out at Xist Fitness; they make their bodies healthier, while their minds catch a break. Others choose massage techniques to calm down. MassageLuXe is the company they are turning to across the country to be able to afford a ‘5-star’ location that emits tranquility and offers employees that understand the services people require to help both body and mind.

What are the things that need to be placed into your daily life to help just a bit more? Are there tips that can be used by one and all to bring down the pulse and heart rates of America so that everyone lives longer and does not become dependent on prescription medication to get through? Yes, in fact, there are.

Getting sleep is a massive issue for good health. Now, getting sleep when you’re anxious is not an easy thing to do, but lack of sleep will also build that anxiety that you are already suffering from. And, no, – no pills or medications should be taken to find a way into that calm nighttime snooze-fest. Before your tension takes a huge toll on the body and mind, you MUST find a way to set aside a 7-to-8 hour quiet time period to take care of yourself. Do this for two to three days, no interruptions, read a book, watch a movie, rest and relax…and you will see a huge change to your health.

Remember that old adage: Laughter is the best medicine? This is not a corny thing to say, this is absolute truth. Our brains get clogged, our bodies tense up; a complete and utter laugh-fest, whether it be with family, seeing a dumb movie, or simply enjoying life by remembering that you are only here for a short time and shouldn’t miss anything, is a great idea. Laughter will decrease anxiety and break a depression quicker than any medication could ever do.

Relax that brain whether you lose yourself in books, surfing the web, doing crossword puzzles, taking a walk in the Great Outdoors – whatever it may be, let your mind be clear. When the brain gets fogged and filled up with all this information, fear and stress – the body goes down quickly and energy can not be found anywhere.

And, yes, eating right is a massive helper. No, this does not mean you can not enjoy that candy bar when you’re out on our walk or doing your crossword puzzle. After all, life should be enjoyed. Just make sure that the candy bar comes along with a fun day at the gym!

Anxiety will never be gone, but it can be toned down in order for both the body and mind to live!
