does anyone have any anxiety cures or treatments?
I’ve heard from many people that marijuana helps them with their anxiety, but I’ve also heard that for some people it can make them paranoid. Depends on how it affects you, and how often you do it. If you’ve never tried it, perhaps give it a shot, but don’t let yourself become dependent on it.
If you were looking for something else, I would suggest taking a walk every day or going for a jog – exercise has a lot of benefits that are great for both your body and your mind; that has always helped me.
It also depends on what kinds of things give you anxiety. Does it come from work, school, social encounters, etc. Finding the source can give you insight into what kinds of things will make it better.
I wish I had a good cure. I used to have anxiety attacks ALL the time (sometimes still do, just not as severe)… The only things I found which had a profound affect on my anxiety were medication or just waiting it out. Eventually every bout of anxiety clears itself up.
Meditation. Just be, and relax. But do it consistently, every day. Look within yourself. I guarantee it will help you.
This is quite a good anxiety guided meditation.
Also, exercise as pikachu said, and take peaceful walks in nature.
I’ve been fortunate to get help through the VA system for anxiety….meditation on relaxing music,Practicing mindfullness,a warm shower [ my favorite ] ,Nature walks,and searching the web for answers.Hope this helps Will.
Will, I think what techniques may be useful depends some on whether you’re talking about general anxiety or anxiety that’s connected with something and what that something is. If you’re willing to give some more details then there may be more specific ideas/suggestions to try.
The very best treatment I’ve ever come across for anxiety, far and away, is meditation.
I used to have a lot of anxiety because of a phobia and here are the things that have helped me to calm down:
1. Agreeing with everyone else, meditation helps a lot. Once you get the hang of it, it will allow you to feel the sensation of anxiety without really being affected by it. You will be able to observe your anxiety instead of being consumed by it. This will help you to overcome it. If you’ve never tried meditation before, just try sitting quietly and close your eyes (or leave them half open) and count your breaths. If your mind wanders, think “Just count.” After you get the knack of letting your thoughts go, you can look up ways of meditating and find the best one for your situation.
I hope this helps. It works for me! But your situation is unique, so find whatever works for you and go with it!
this anxiety has kind of hit me totally out of the blue. i work at a overnight summer camp and before camp started i was totally fine, my energy was through the roof my emotions were in control i was having fun. a little background info about me, im 20 years old, i have a loving girlfriend that i love very much, i was working as a substitute teacher at my high school when i got done with my school year at new Hampshire institute of art i will be going into my junior year of college.i do mediate though not regularly. i have started to think of things that has been causing my to feel anxiety and its hard to word. it happens when i start to goto be, i worry that i will be up all night trying to go to bed and then that turns into a event. my second bout of anxiety is thinking of my girlfriend, which is the most frustrating part. i think of her name and i feel anxious and what is frustrating about this is i love her with all my heart and she puts zero stress on me and is very supportive and understanding with this thing i have been going through. what i have been thinking of that could be the root of this problem with her is, she is my first real girlfriend in 3 years that actually loves me and would never hurt me(for once) second of all i think it could be the distance thing, she works at a summer camp as well and im only able to see her for 2 days every 2 weeks because of scheduling of both our camps. and the third thing is im so afraid of hurting her so that scares me. there is some info on me and im open to some more feed back if possible!!!

I can understand that. My anxiety has emerged at one of the best points in my life and its horrible to have it drag you down!! From what you’ve said it sounds like you would be truly enjoying your life if it wasn’t for these thoughts. Here are a few quotes that help me with worrying:
“When you worry, you make it double” Basically, when you worry about something the worrying can make everything so much worse than it actually is.
As for your girlfriend, it sounds like you have an excellent relationship with her. But it seems that your mind is taking an almost “too good to be true” path. You love her so much that it scares you that you will hurt her. Here’s another quote to keep in mind:
Just remember, breathe and don’t let your thoughts outsmart common sense!
L-Theanine.. It helps tremendously with curing nervous energy and anxiety. It is an amino acid found in green tea, however, can be taken in extract form using the product suntheanine which is found at the Vitamin Shoppe or GNC.
I have used this a lot and it has allowed me to increase productivity and get over bouts of anxiety!
psychotherapy, and looking at the causes, and your inner workings
I have social anxiety and just recently I realized that vaping chamomile knocks it out pretty damn well. And my anxiety level is high, like not being able to be comfortable around new people at all and even people that I know
