7 Ways to Manage Stress & Anxiety

May is Mental Wellness Month, Sunshine Healing Arts Acupuncture & Wellness in Atlantic Beach, Florida

  1. Deep Breathing brings us into our bodies and out of our heads: Focus on taking slow deep breaths, inhaling for 3 counts and exhaling for 6 counts. Do this 10 times and it puts the body back to homeostasis.
  2. Homeopathic Rescue Remedy is a wonderful product from Bach Flower Remedies that takes the edge off of anxiety. They have different forms such as pastilles, a dropper, or little sublingual pellets. You can find them at Whole Foods or online.
  3. Physical activity helps release stress, reduce tension, improve mood, and increase mindfulness. Take up yoga, or head to the beach and put your feet in the sand and your face to the sun!
  4. Getting in the garden allows a real connection with the earth, grounding us and calming the mind. No yard to dig in? Try potted plants, or a garden box on the patio or balcony.
  5. Focus on Gratitude and what you are thankful for: Realizing how wonderful life is, even the small stuff helps to put anxiety back into it’s place. Practice self-care and positive self-talk. Surround yourself with positive people, visualize success and focus on progress, not perfection.
  6. Connect with others: Socializing, talking with friends or family members, and engaging in healthy activities can help reduce stress, ease anxiety, and combat loneliness.
  7. And of course…. Regular Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs!! These focus on resetting imbalances deep down that show up as anxiety, stress, depression, irritability, and mood swings. Whether you are going through a tough period, or always have emotional discomforts in the background, we are experts at helping make life lighter and easier by workin on these underlying imbalances.
