Ways To Deal With Anxiety: Three Tips Our Therapists Want You To Know

The pounding heart, the sweaty palms, the racing thoughts: while not everyone experiences anxiety in the same way, these symptoms are familiar to many. If you're searching for ways to deal with anxiety, you're not alone. Let's take a look at some tips from top therapists on how to calm anxiety fast.

 

  • Deep breathing. While it sounds cliche, it works. Try to slow your breathing - breathe in for a count of 5, out for a count of 10, a few times in a row, and feel your heart rate slow.

  • Try grounding techniques. These techniques bring your attention to the present moment. Find five green things in the room, then five blue things, etc. Repeat until you feel your anxiety lift.

  • Change your environment. If you're inside, step out. If you're surrounded by others, catch a moment alone. Doing so can give you the mental reset you may need.
