- Question your thinking
Negative thoughts can fill your mind and distort the severity of the situation. One way is to challenge your fears. Ask yourself if this fear is true and see what you can do to control it.
- Practice Deep Breathing
Try to inhale 1 to 100 times and exhale 100 to 1 times. Do this process for 5 minutes. Deep breathing slows down the heartbeat and reduces anxiety. The 4-7-8 technique is also known to help with discomfort.
- Go for a walk or do 15 minutes of yoga
Often the best way to stop anxious thoughts is to get out of the situation. Doing yoga or walking for a while to focus on your body, not your mind, can also help relieve your anxiety. Exercising regularly for 30 minutes is very important not only for physical but also for mental health.
- Write down your thoughts
Write down what worries you, when we write our thoughts through a journal or diary we say those thoughts to ourselves. Talk to yourself. Doing so reduces the fear of those thoughts and makes it a little easier to overcome them.
- Do regular meditation
