In today’s podcast episode, I’m talking about the number one factor that affects young people today: anxiety. I recently went to a lecture where the main topic was anxiety and its prevalence, and what I learned was really upsetting. Because of my findings, I wanted to take today’s episode to share ways in order to ease anxiety, and if you are struggling, know that it is okay to seek help.
What is anxiety?
It is different than stress. Anxiety is when you have a perceived or believed threat. Stress is something that activates anxiety.
What’s causing the anxiety?
In order to get to dealing with the anxiety, we have to figure out what is causing it. Think about your daily life and the factors that go into it. Are you commuting? Do you have a hostile workplace? Is your home-life stress inducing? How are you breathing? Examine your day and look at all the possible sparks where anxiety may be induced.
What can we do to help?
Breathing exercises can really help reset the high-alert system you’re in. Eating food that is nourishing your body, and properly hydrating can be helpful. What else can you do to relax? Remember, not everything has to be done with a purpose.
