5 Simple Ways To Reduce Anxiety

Anxiety’s like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do, but it doesn’t get you very far. -Jodi Picoult

Jodi Picoult is right. Anxiety doesn’t get us anywhere. But the truth is that it is a reality for us. We are anxious about simple every day things, and we are anxious about huge things that our beyond our control.

If you gathered up all the fearful thoughts that exist in the mind of the average person, looked at them objectively, and tried to decide just how much good they provided that person, you would see that not some but all fearful thoughts are useless. They do no good. Zero. They interfere with dreams, hopes, desire and progress. – Richard Carlson

For many of us, anxiety is almost second nature. Anxiety keeps from living life fully and from being grateful. It keeps us from enjoying the present moment.

Anxiety is a thin stream of fear trickling through the mind. If encouraged, it cuts a channel into which all other thoughts are drained. – Arthur Somers Roche

    Oh I have to add self hypnosis to that list. I have an anxiety program that I give to my clients that helps with relaxation, worrying and negative thinking, panic attacks and sleep. When they take time out every day to listen to one of these audios they tend to find that after a couple of weeks the anxiety has significantly dropped or totally gone.

    Washing Dishes in a mindful way can reduce stress in an unbelievable concept. For me, this is the most irritating household work so far. Shall I give a try? Confused?
