In this post we are covering 5 ways to calm anxiety. Anxiety is a disruptor of life, and can infiltrate many areas of your life. Learning to manage anxiety serves someone for a life time. Anxiety can be seasonal, at times it can be predicted, and other times it cannot. Anxiety can come from stress, an incident, or randomness. In whatever way anxiety presents itself, managing and calming anxiety is helpful.
In this video, we cover 5 ways to calm anxiety naturally as established daily habits.
Does anxiety trouble you at times?
For me, it is something ebbs and flows throughout my life, and is usually tied to events or general stress. I have been able to use the techniques in this video to safeguard myself from it snowballing into more severe anxiety/depression. Not all times do I avoid a stronger grip, but learning how to manage my anxiety has proven to aid in my recovery from it often.
There is a reality to anxiety that always drives my relationship to Christ deeper. And that is a silver-lining I cling to many times when walking thru trials. I believe in the power of prayer, and the word of God being relevant always and forever.
Our mind is strong enough to battle against anxiety, and at times, that is the truth I will speak over myself in the name of Jesus. Audibly, I will say ” I am washed in the blood of Christ, I will not be victim to these thoughts for Christ is for me.” Speaking truth over myself is the foremost action I can take when in the throws of heightened anxiousness.
The tips shared in this video are preventative and reactive, and have helped me keep at bay the cyclical notion anxiety can take if I am not conscious of it’s presence.
In what ways has your relationship with Christ been impacted by anxiety? And, in what ways have you learned to calm your anxiety?
Noticing the patterns to your mental health will reap much fruit because it sheds light on areas that you may be avoiding, or not managing well. In my own journey with anxiety, I’ve found that repetitive cycles have pointed to things that I truly need to rewire in my mind that may have been tied to past hurts or lies, and what I need to have faith in Christ to reign over.
Anxiety is a real physiological response, and mental one as well. Checkout this episode of my podcast to capture just how pervasive our thoughts can be.
