  1. Breathe slowly, deeply, and well. Relaxation begins with slow, deep breathing from your diaphragm.
  2. Learn to say “no”. It’s hard to say no sometimes, but recognize you can’t do everything, pace yourself.
  3. Go ahead and make mistakes. The only way we really learn is from our mistakes. Accept them as the natural process of growing in wisdom.
  4. Play with a lover, a friend, a child, a pet. Having fun is the natural way of lowering the body’s stress hormones. Stress tenses, play loosens.
  5. Eat well and avoid stimulants. A healthy diet makes the body strong and increases a sense of well-being. Caffeine and nicotine put more stress on our musculature and nervous system.
  6. Problems have a tendency to mount quickly, until there can seem so many as to be overwhelming. Tackle them one at a time. Your day will seem appreciably lighter after even one dreaded task is tackled.
  7. Allow yourself to mourn. Changes, even good changes, can bring a sense of loss for how things used to be. You have the right to grieve this loss. In fact, everyone needs that time.
  8. If you are prone to anxiety you have two choices. Give in to it or learn to live with it. Giving into it also means that your partner will suffer the burden of your fears so, to make your lives a better place to be, find ways to eliminate or at least limit this feeling by taking responsibility for your emotions and knowing you have a choice.
  9. When you wake up tomorrow start doing something right away, and keep busy all day. Taking action by doing something, almost anything, will help you work through your anxiety. Sometimes it’s doing the dishes or working in your garden. Other times it’s reading or meditating. Just sitting around and thinking about your worries won’t make them go away.
  10. Focus your attention on where the feeling of anxiousness is in your body and keep your attention there until the feeling moves or dissolves. For example the tension could be in your abdomen or your neck. Whenever your attention wanders, bring it back to the place in your body where the physical feeling is. Doing this for five or ten minutes can reduce, if not eliminate, the anxiety.
  11. Anxiety will grow if it’s not directed into some positive action. Find someone who needs you and lend him or her, a helping hand. It will almost always take your mind off your problems and fears. Helping others is actually a way of taking action and responsibility for your own healing.
  12. Talking to someone is one of the best ways to overcome your anxiety. Getting together with your family and friends, even your fellow patrons at Starbucks, and talking about what you are feeling can be helpful. If you can’t talk to someone, try writing a letter or visiting an appropriate Internet chat room.
  13. Exercise is another good way to keep from letting your fears overwhelm you. Sometimes gentle forms of exercise like walking and yoga can be better than a hard workout at the gym. Do what works best for you at the moment and don’t worry about breaking your normal routine, that change may actually help reduce your anxiety.
  14. Start a gratitude journal; write down three to five things that you are grateful for. Do this every night, it works and it’s very easy. Become aware of all the good that surrounds you. You can also have a releasing journal where you write about your anxiety and the actions that you can take to overcome those fears.

I am honestly short of words to express gratitude to you. But thank you. I attack stress by going head on against the stresor. But why do other stresses immediately emerge? The biggest stresses are the ones that are delibrately,so it seems,thrown at me. I have tried to rationalise this and I have come to the conclusion that most people prefer to share your success with you rather than you failure. So duty now is to express love to everyone because all is directed to my success. I then have decided to see stressors as teachers….a golden opportunity to learn and gain wisdom. The world would be better for it!
