Are you struggling with anxiety and looking for natural remedies? You're not alone.
Anxiety is a common mental health condition that affects millions of people worldwide. Many individuals seek pharmaceutical options, but they often aren’t enough for full symptom relief nor long term resolution.
In this article, we'll discuss ten natural remedies for anxiety relief using a holistic approach:
1 - Practice Mindfulness
Mindfulness is the practice of being present in the moment and focusing on your thoughts and feelings without judgment. This can help you become more aware of triggers and learn how to manage them. Incorporating mindfulness into your daily routine can help reduce stress and promote relaxation.
2 - Try Relaxation Techniques
Relaxation techniques such as deep breathing, prayer, journaling, and walking are great ways to reduce stress and promote relaxation. Taking a few moments to engage in these techniques can help calm your mind and body.
3 - Get Enough Sleep
Lack of sleep can exacerbate or even trigger anxiety symptoms. Aim for 7-8 hours of sleep per night to promote overall mental health, and use natural sleep aids when needed.
4 - Eat a Healthy Diet
A balanced diet rich in healthy fats, moderate and clean protein, and produce-based carbohydrates supports neurological and mental health. Avoid processed foods and aim for whole, nutrient-dense foods to promote overall wellness.
5 - Use Aromatherapy
Essential oils like lavender and copaiba have calming properties that can help reduce anxiety. Incorporating aromatherapy into your daily routine can help promote relaxation and reduce stress. Northern Escape, a doTERRA blend of tree oils, can help ground the mind and calm your thoughts.
6 - Take Herbal Supplements
Supplements like valerian root, passionflower, and kava can help calm the nervous system and reduce anxiety. Serenity Softgels by doTERRA, a blend of herbal supplements and essential oils, can help soothe anxiousness naturally. Adaptiv Capsules, another herbal and essential oil blend, can be ingested to help promote relaxation.
7 - Spend Time in Nature
Being in nature has been shown to reduce stress and promote feelings of calm. If you can't get outside, reach for Northern Escape to ground the mind and calm your thoughts.
8 - Limit Caffeine and Alcohol Intake
Both caffeine and alcohol can worsen anxiety symptoms, so it’s best to limit your intake to promote overall mental health.
9 - Seek Support
Talking to a therapist or joining a support group can provide valuable resources and help you feel less alone. Seeking support can help you manage your anxiety and promote overall wellness.
10 - Work with a Functional Medicine Practitioner
Functional medicine practitioners can help identify the root cause of anxiety by taking a comprehensive look at an individual's physiological factors. By addressing these underlying issues, a functional medicine approach can help alleviate anxiety symptoms and improve overall mental health.
