Now before we go any further I would like to say that I am not a doctor nor do I pretend to be one on the Internet, if you are experiencing serious bouts of anxiety and stress please go and see a doctor who can refer you to a mental health professional.
Author: Christian Baker, a professional speaker and nutritional specialist, talks about the rise of stress and anxiety among the population around the world. He explains why nowadays we are more stressed than ever and gives practical advice on how to reduce stress and anxiety naturally by getting back in touch with our parasympathetic nervous system.
Here's an interesting snapshot taken from Google Trends:
We haven't evolved a whole lot since then.
Yet our environment has changed significantly.
Here are 2 suggestions:
This means building up some "relaxation reserves" and actively working on relaxing before letting anyone else get into your head or in your way each day.
Time and time again, if you dig into the routines of successful people who perform well under pressure most of them engage in some kind of regular meditative practice.
Even meditating for just 5 to 10 minutes in the morning can make a difference and can help you to get in touch with your parasympathetic nervous system.
Another great way to get started is to try out the free app Headspace.
The cool thing about Headspace is that it's a guided meditation involving an English gentleman by the name of Andy talking you gently through the meditations.
The man is a legend and has been a full-time monk in multiple countries yet is super down to earth and a pleasure to listen to.
Give it a go, it's free and it's fun.
Also, another great tool for creating a good meditative environment is the website Calm.com.
It also has guided meditation but my favourite feature is their white noise generator, you can choose environments such as gentle waves breaking on the shore or soft raindrops falling in a forest. It's magnificent.
Also, if you are suffering from serious anxiety issues please go and see a doctor.
