Suffering from anxiety and depression?
If yes, chances are you’re one of the many people who gets easily triggered by certain (usually minor) life events.
It could also be that you regularly feel a somewhat weird sense of fear or dread (even when there’s absolutely nothing to worry about).
Well, the very first thing you should know is that “you’re not alone”.
Yes, there are a whole lot of people going through exactly what you feel and even worse!
But of course, the good news is, you can actually prevent anxiety from getting the better part of you!
And no, you won’t have to spend a dime on anti-anxiety medications (most of which aggravate or worsen the situation).
So what’s the point?
Well, it’s pretty simple — there are several different ways to tame or better still, get rid of anxiety and depression naturally.
It’s basically a matter of knowing what to do and applying them right off the bat!
Ready to take control of your life? If yes, here are 5 tested and trusted home remedies you’ll certainly want to consider.
1. Stick to a Healthy Diet
Ever heard the saying, “you are what you eat”?
Well, it’s so true! Everything you eat actually becomes a part of both your inner being and outer fabric of your body.
Now, since we’re talking about anxiety, you should be aware that the foods you eat have a huge impact on how you feel.
So yes, if you find that your anxiety only gets worse after eating, you’ll certainly do well to check your eating habits.
Speaking of which, a high-sugar diet can trigger or aggravate anxiety and depression.
What’s more, the many chemicals in processed foods can cause serious mood swings in some people; and chances are you might be one!
So what’s the point? Well, it’s pretty simple — eliminate processed foods, cut down on sugar and of course, make a big switch to healthy foods (including fruits, veggies, and lean proteins).
And oh, don’t forget to drink lots and lots of water!
2. Quit Smoking
Do you smoke? If yes, chances are you usually reach for a cigarette or two when things go beyond your control.
But hey, you should know that smoking is only a quick fix for anxiety; it may only make things worse over time.
Why? Well, it’s primarily because most if not all of the chemicals (including nicotine) in cigarette smoke alter pathways in the brain linked to anxiety.
In a nutshell, smoking triggers or worsen anxiety symptoms. So yes, you certainly won’t be wrong to quit!
3. Ditch Alcohol
Yes, a glass of red wine may help calm your nerves when they’re shot; but of course, the buzz won’t last forever!
And unfortunately, your anxiety may only come back stronger.
Moreover, the whole idea of using alcohol to curb anxiety may eventually lead to alcohol dependence and that of course, is a new problem in itself.
Just do your best to cut down your intake or stop altogether.
4. Exercise or Stay Active
Of course, basically, every one of us know that exercise is great for the health — it aids weight loss, increases energy levels, promotes better sleep and more!
But did you know that regular exercise can ease anxiety and depression?
Well, it can! It’s just a matter of creating time to work your body every now and then (or whenever you feel the negative energy creeping in).
Last but certainly not the least is meditation. Yes, meditation is perhaps one of the best and most effective ways to banish stress and anxiety.
Of course, the primary goal of meditation is clear your mind of chaotic thoughts and foster well-being.
That said, it’s sure to be an excellent remedy for a number of anxiety symptoms.
And yes, it can also double as a super effective antidepressant!
Finally, you should be aware that essential oils (lavender, bergamot, clary sage, and ylang-ylang) and herbs (especially kava, St John’s Wort, Ashwagandha and more) can work for depression and anxiety.
Just try to do and of course, stick to what provides the most relief to you.
