How To Beat Chronic Anxiety

Chronic worry, stress and anxiety can have extremely detrimental effects on physical and emotional health. I know firsthand. I used to be a chronic worrier and always anxious about everything. For years I worried and stressed about finances, jobs, relationships, what people thought of me, how clean or messy my home was, how to please everyone, the future, the past and everything in between. I picked up the only coping mechanisms I was aware of as a child, teen and young adult – food, smoking and drinking – and while they seemed to help at first they only made my anxiety worse in the long run. I developed digestive problems, chronic migraines, infections, exhaustion, depression, and a host of other side-effects. I made the decision over 20 years ago to quit smoking and drinking. (It wasn’t easy and I probably would not have been able to quit if I hadn’t focused on developing a strong spiritual foundation and supportive relationships.) I dedicated myself to the discovery and implementation of holistic wellness. Even so, there can often be long-term side effects from decades of abusing our physical and emotional self. It wasn’t until I started regularly meditating and doing energy work like quantum healing, angel energy sessions, Reiki and consciously changing my expectations and responses to life that my health and well-being improved dramatically.

Solutions to Chronic Anxiety

The good news is there are lots of solutions to help reduce or eliminate chronic anxiety. My favorites are meditation and energy work, like Reiki, Quantum Touch, Tuning Forks and Life Coaching. Addressing bad habits, getting more conscious about our mental chatter, our responses to stress and taking time to look at our triggers and create new patterns, new responses and new behaviors that support our well-being and happiness. Quitting alcohol, cigarettes, caffeine and refined sugar plays a huge role in physical and mental wellness. Diet and exercise are key components in handling stress and anxiety. Herbal remedies like lemon balm, passion flower, rhodiola and schizandra can also do wonders in proper dosage.
