Simplify Your Anxiety Routine

Simplify Your Anxiety Routine

If you're like a lot of our readers, you have tried pretty much everything to reduce your stress and anxiety. You also probably are taking other medications for every day ailments - be it joint pain, heart health, vitamin D deficiency...

1. Ditch the products with artificial ingredients.

Many of the supplements we take have artificial ingredients. Artificial flavors, colors and sweeteners are not allowed in everything our food and drinks but yet they're found in almost all vitamin and dietary supplements.

And sadly, many common vitamins use synthetic preservatives like BHA (butylated hydroxyanisole) or BHT (butylated hydroxytoluene) that are chemicals the body has a hard time getting rid of.

And the reality is, these ingredients just aren't needed. Replace those supplements with a good, transparent product and you'll have a product that not only is better for you, but likely will be more effective too.

2. Try products that do double duty.

Once upon a time, vitamin D was vitamin D, omega-3's were omega-3's, probiotics were just probiotics... you get the idea.

What a great way to get you to buy tons and tons of products! But today companies have finally got it - They realized that their profits are better served by producing a single product that does more than one thing for you.

If you're stressed and anxious, chances are pretty good that you also have some sort of sleep issue: insomnia, anxiety during the night (that is keeping you awake), or waking up too early. So instead of using one product to help your anxiety, and another product to help you sleep, why not look for one that does double duty?

3. Learn that less is more.

One of the most difficult parts of having anxiety is not knowing "When will it stop?" You try to keep everything in perspective and be grateful for what you have, but there are still days where that darned negative emotion rear's its ugly head and refuses to go away.

And on those days it is important to remember that less is more...

Simplify your routine to focus on the steps that work best for you. Whether that be breathing techniques, meditation, or even a personal mantra - surely there is something out there for you.

Hone in on the small victories.

It's so easy to get overwhelmed when you're stressed and anxious that it can feel like one step forward ten steps back. But remember that all you need is one small victory to change your day!
