For many years now, sociologists have seen a great increase in the number of people with problems managing stress and anxiety, but this year has definitely been difficult for everyone. From different spheres our life has been negatively affected, apart from the obvious bombardment of the media with negative notes, which are clearly affecting our health.
We can see this reflected in our quality of sleep, for example, people have been affected in such a way that either they no longer sleep eight hours or sleep at different times than they were used to in their working hours.
For this and many more reasons, it is important to deal with anxiety, since it affects our organs in a negative way.
- Control your breathing. The first thing you must do to deal with a period of anxiety or stress is to control our breathing so that our organs are oxygenated. One way to do this is to inhale in 3 seconds, hold for 3 seconds, and release in 3 seconds. Then in each exercise in 4 and the last in 5. It is a simple exercise that will allow your brain to oxygenate and you can think more clearly, relaxing your body.
When doing this exercise you should let your lungs expand.
2. Focus on the moment. For a moment put your mind blank and focus on something that is close to you at the moment. It can be a painting, a song, a conversation, etc., look for something that connects you with your immediate reality.
3. Focus on the sounds. Look for slow music with a slow pace or sounds of nature and focus on them, don’t let your mind wander.
4. Get physical activity. Many of us have no condition, but we recommend looking for an activity that suits you, this is to release the stress that has accumulated in your muscles, oxygenates your body and you can release tension.
5. Think s3x. It is proven that thinking about sex in times of tension makes your muscles relax, your mind wanders and your mind recreates itself.
6. Find a professional. Our main advice is to let yourself be guided by a mental health professional such as a psychologist, someone with training who will advise you on what is the best technique for you.
Hopefully these tips will help you.
