There will come a time in your life that you start to feel anxious or stressed out about something. It can hit you when you least expect it to, and the issues can vary from being crippling and to stop you doing things, to just being in an underlying tone in general day to day life. Anxiety and/or stress are not pleasant things to ensure, and whether you have flitters of it or really struggle with it, you might always be looking for ways to combat the feelings and emotions. So how can you do it? The truth is, there isn’t a one size fits all cure, but there are few things that you could try that might make a big difference.


Exercise can work wonders

When it comes to stress and anxiety one of the biggest and perhaps most popular suggestions to beat it is to exercise. This doesn’t always appeal to everyone, but it can be a great way to not only improve your mental health but also your physical health and wellbeing. Not everyone enjoys the gym, but a run locally, a swim or even working out at home could make all of the difference. 


Alternative methods could work a treat

Maybe you are open minded about trying alternative techniques. This might include using vaping as a way to relax anxiety and some common options like cbd can make a big difference. Other methods might include something more mentally focused like meditation. When you concentrate on your breathing and your thoughts. There are plenty of suggestions online if you search out alternative methods. 


Write it down  

Writing things down can also really help when it comes to the mental side of anxiety and stress. Many people struggle with their symptoms at night, lying awake worrying when they really have no way to make a difference at that hour. Keeping paper and a pen close means you could write down your thoughts. In a way you could see it as downloading your thoughts from your mind to paper, to be dealt with in the morning, so that you can rest at night. 


Communicate your feelings

Not all of us are big talkers, and men especially can bottle things up inside and refuse to give the impression that they are struggling in some way. But communication, with either your partner or friends or family can make such a big difference. Sometimes things can seem much harder to handle when they are in our heads. Saying things out loud can help put things into perspective, and seeing the help and advice of another could help you come up with a solution or a plan of action. 


Change your lifestyle 

Finally, stress and anxiety can be fuelled in many ways, and often it can be the things we go to for comfort that can fuel the issue instead of solving it. The food you eat, the drinks you consume, the behavior, the not leaving your house or socializing, they are not doing you any favors. Instead, focus on your lifestyle and make some healthy and positive changes, even when you don’t feel like it. It could make a big difference. 

Let’s hope that highlighting some of these options helps you if you are dealing with stress and anxiety issues.
