Week One- 5 tips to reducing anxiety…

1. Remember “this too shall pass”. What you are experiencing is a normal emotional response to stress.

2. Learn to self soothe. Finding ways to relax, some examples: deep breathing, positive self talk and muscle relaxation.

3. Be aware of your nutritional state, things like caffeine and alcohol can increase anxiety and stress.

4. Keep moving, physical activity helps the body create endorphins that stimulate euphoric feelings and reduce pain.
