Address Physical Symptoms of Anxiety

I was featured recently in an article on how to address physical symptoms of anxiety. You can check out the full article in Bustle. Here’s a snippet:

“Deep breathing can be a very quick, and effective way to stop an anxious response before it accelerates. “During moments of anxiety, your brain’s fight-or-flight mechanism is activated,” Kevin Hyde, licensed psychologist tells Bustle.”

The article features many other techniques as well, including:

  • Add self-care into your daily routine
  • Take a pause to notice your thoughts
  • Avoid caffeine, nicotine, and other substances that are intended to give you energy – they often fuel our anxiety response
  • Engage in acts of kindness towards others, and yourself!

If you’re interested in discussing how to work these strategies into your life to help address your stress, worry, and anxiety, please reach out for a free consultation. I’d love to chat with you so you can see what your life could look like when you start to take control again. I have a couple slots open in my practice if we decide we’re a good fit.
