How to Immediately Relax and Decrease Anxiety with Self-esteem app

2 Mins read

Combining cognitive behavioral therapy and medication may be used to treat anxiety disorders. But numerous straightforward methods have been shown to work for people experiencing anxiety attacks. Here are some quick techniques for relieving anxiety and unwinding using a self-esteem app:

  • Observe your breathing

Take a moment to pause and concentrate on your breathing. Sit up straight, inhale deeply through your nose, hold it for three counts, and then slowly let it out while relaxing your face, jaw, shoulders, and abdominal muscles. Your heart rate will decrease, and your blood pressure will go down. Practice deep breathing occasionally to make it automatic to use in stressful situations.

  • Meditate

According to the self-esteem app, mindful meditation can aid in reducing anxiety and stress. Even though we all practice mindfulness, it becomes much easier when available. You might want to give guided meditation using audiotapes or a smartphone app a try if you’re new to the practice. It is neither complex nor exotic; all that is needed is the ability to concentrate on the present moment. Place your feet firmly on the floor and take a seat upright. Close your eyes and repeat a mantra to yourself or out loud. Any inspiring word or sound can serve as your mantra. Try to sync the mantra with your breaths. If you find distracting things, try not to get upset.

  • Reach out

It’s a very personal choice whether or not to share your feelings with a close friend or member of your family, but doing so can help you deal with anxiety. Talking to someone else—preferably in person or on the phone—can give you a fresh outlook on your predicament. Ask for what you need without holding back. Speak up if you want someone to accompany you to a movie, on a walk, or to sit with you for a while. Talking to someone you care about always makes you feel better, regardless of the situation.

  • Physical exercise

Not a runner or athlete for long distances? Probably not the best time to begin training is now. But keep in that all forms of exercise are beneficial for you and can help with anxiety symptoms. Walking, yoga and tai chi are all mild forms of exercise that release these feel-good hormones. If you can’t do those right away, try some stretches at your desk or a quick stroll outside during lunch.

  • Take care of yourself.

Sometimes all you need to do to feel better is take action. That might entail getting a relaxing facial or a massage. Wrap your neck and shoulders in a warmed heat wrap for quick relaxation. Relax your face and neck muscles while closing your eyes. Disconnecting from the outside world can be helpful at times. Turn off your phone, computer, and television, even if you only have five minutes, and observe the world without you for a while. Time in silence is calming.
