Over the last century or so, anxiety has emerged into its' own pandemic.
It has led to a sort of commonplace struggle for nearly 4% of the world population, or roughly 284 million people (Dattani, Ritchie, Roser, 2021).
It has caused a boom in medicines, both natural and pharmaceutical.
But what if the struggle didn't have to begin? What if it could be prevented or the onset diminished?
And thus, we have arrived at the focus of today's read - 5 ways I've learned to keep my anxiety at bay that I want to share with you all.
1. Reflect on previous instances of anxiousness, and document observed patterns.
Hidden in the nightmares of our anxiety are often predictable factors that lead to their emergence. It might be that 5th cup of coffee, or the repeated 4 hours of sleep every night.
Anxiety is often triggered, and those triggers can be detected by learning to document patterns within our lifestyles.
2. Document ways to avoid what's caused you to be anxious in the past.
Just as important as identifying the triggers, is documenting the path to avoid them.
3. Ground yourself in truth.
Anxiety is often fostered in untruths. Don't let yourself believe the lies.
If you're struggling with believing the value of your worth - check out my series on confidence, which outlines how you can objectively know your worth and improve your confidence.
4. Gravitate towards what is good.
Anxiety is an evil, and evil cannot come from good. Surround yourself with people, places, and objects that promote mental, physical, and spiritual wellness.
5. Be diligent as often as possible.
Anxiety often comes when we find ourselves unprepared.
Take every opportunity to be diligent with your finances, relationships, work, and health. And keep this mind, it's always better to over - than under-prepared.
