Relaxation Ninja Techniques for Dealing with Anxiety

Relaxation is one of the greatest and most expensive things in the world. People would pay millions just to relax. Think of all the people who go on cruises and the like. They all want to experience what life is when freed from stress.

When you have an anxiety disorder, the pressure to relax is greater. After all, your dealing with anxiety can spell the difference between miserable for the rest of your life being happy. Relaxation ninjas are great at dealing with anxiety. Here are some of their methods

1. Live in the Present

Stress comes to a person with anxiety disorders when he starts thinking of the past mistakes and the future bad events. Staying in the current time is the best because you don’t have to worry about what happened in the past and what could happen in the future. You only have to worry about what’s in front of you at the moment.

2. No More Denial

Denial is the cause of stress. If you accept that you may have an anxiety disorder, you can write that off as something you can deal with and quit worrying about it. As long as there is no stress that comes from denial, you can always go out with a few friends and never have to worry about them freaking out when you do. Strangely enough, you don’t get anxious as often if you know about your problem, and there are people around you that accept you despite the fact that you have a problem with anxiety.

3. Give Up Caffeine and Nicotine

Smoking and drinking coffee may be contributing to your inability to handle stress. Stress and resistance to treatment could be caused by a clouded mind. If your mind is clear, you can focus all your mental energy into recovery. Being level-headed means being freed from the effects of substance that could hamper your progress. When you drink coffee, you tend to be more jittery. The same goes with smoking. You can feel a lot better if you can relax completely without the chemically induced jitters.

4. Organize in a Comfortable Way

While being organized is great, you should always remember that there is no military officer around to yell at you if your books are not in alphabetical order. Chaos, especially managed chaos, is a way of life. Don’t stress about being organized, but don’t let loose so that your room and your mind would stay cluttered.

5. Prioritize Your Activities

You don’t have to do everything you wished for and dreamed of. There are some things you can put off for another week. The main thing is that you know what’s important to you and you can focus on those things.
