Managing Anxiety Naturally
Valerie Lundgren | Sep 20, 2023
At some point in our lives, we all experience anxiety. Whether it's the feeling of anticipation before a big life change, or the fear of the unknown, anxiety can take hold of our minds and bodies, leaving us feeling overwhelmed and worn down. While it's normal to experience anxiety from time to time, when it becomes a constant presence in our lives, it can greatly impact our ability to find balance and joy.
Thankfully, there are holistic approaches to tackling anxiety that incorporate both mind and body for whole-body healing. In this blog post, we'll explore the root cause of anxiety, and provide some practical tools for those seeking to overcome this challenging emotional state.
On a physical level, anxiety can often manifest as tension in the body, leading to headaches, stomach aches, and even panic attacks. To begin addressing this, it's important to start paying attention to our body's signals, practicing mindfulness and body awareness. This can include practices such as yoga, meditation, or even simply deep breathing exercises. By paying attention to our breathing and our physical sensations, we can bring our focus back to the present moment, and begin to experience a sense of calm.
But addressing the physical symptoms alone won't solve the root cause of anxiety. When it comes to holistic healing, it's important to take a deeper look at the emotional and spiritual underpinnings of our anxiety. Often, anxiety is fueled by a sense of fear and unease around the future. By focusing on mindfulness and soul work, we can begin to unpack these fears and work towards resolving them.
One approach to this is through journaling, where we can explore our thoughts and feelings in a safe and supportive way. Through creating this space for reflection and self-exploration, we can begin to identify patterns and beliefs that are contributing to our anxiety. From there, we can work to address these beliefs and shift our perspective towards one of growth and positivity.
Healing from anxiety is an ongoing journey, and there are no quick fixes or easy solutions. However, by incorporating mindfulness, holistic approaches, and soul work, we can begin to address the root cause of our anxiety and experience greater peace and joy in our lives. Remember to be gentle with yourself, and know that you are not alone in this journey towards mindful wellness.
