There are numerous methods for dealing with anxiety. You could try things like guided meditation, making positive affirmations, or altering your way of life.

For each person, a particular coping mechanism will work best to deal with anxiety and find calmness. You may test out these six tactics to determine if they work for you by using them.

  1. Slow Breathing

Your breathing grows shallower and faster while you're feeling nervous. To slow your breathing down, do this exercise:

  • As you take a deep breath in, count to three.
  • As you take a deep breath out, count to three.

  1. Progressive muscle relaxation

 This exercise can ease the tightness in the muscles that frequently accompanies anxiety:

  • Look for a quiet area.
  • With your eyes closed, slowly tighten and then release every muscle in your body, starting from your toes up to your head.
  • Quickly release the strain after three seconds of holding it.

  1. Keep your focus on the now

Anxiety might cause your mind to dwell on a dismal, unrealized future. Try to return to your current location. Meditation practice can be beneficial.

  1. Maintain a healthy lifestyle

Living a healthy lifestyle might help you feel better and minimize anxiety. Healthy routines consist of:

• Keeping fit

• Healthy eating

• Spending time in nature outside

• Having fun with friends and family

• De-stressing

• Engaging in hobbies you enjoy.  

  1. Small acts of bravery

Do something that stresses you out, even just a little bit. For instance, if speaking in front of a group of people makes you nervous, prepare a brief presentation for your friends or family.

Your ability to control your anxiety for larger acts of bravery can be improved by your success with smaller acts of bravery.

In the short run, avoiding anxiety triggers can help you feel better, but in the long run, it can make you feel even more nervous.

  1. Challenge your self-talk

Refrain from self-talk.

How you feel is influenced by your thoughts. To alter your way of thinking

  • look at a circumstance that is making you anxious in fresh, optimistic ways.
  • Consider the facts; is what you believe true?

When you're anxious, you could exaggerate how dangerous something is while also underestimating your own capacity to handle it.
