While you’re improving your muscle tone and strength, you’re increasing your flexibility and heart rate. Because it’s such a great workout gardening can help you to sleep better while you’re creating a beautiful place to spend down time. Read More >

Managing and treating anxiety

  • Anxiety disorders can affect a person’s ability to work, study and participate in other activities.
  • Recovery is possible with the appropriate treatment.
  • Some ways to manage anxiety disorders include learning about anxiety, mindfulness, relaxation techniques, correct breathing techniques, dietary adjustments, exercise, learning to be assertive, building self-esteem, cognitive therapy, exposure therapy, structured problem solving, medication and support groups.

 

Anxiety disorders can affect a person’s ability to work, study and participate in other activities. Recovery is possible with appropriate treatment. There are different types of anxiety disorders. These include:

Anxiety disorders can be distressing and debilitating. They may contribute to loss of educational and employment opportunities and difficulties in family and social relationships. 

Recovery is possible with appropriate treatment such as exposure therapy, attention training, and a range of anxiety management techniques that can help you manage your symptoms. You can learn the following strategies yourself (using books or taking courses, for example) or you can consult with a trained professional.

Managing anxiety

Some of the management options for anxiety disorders include:

  • learning about anxiety
  • mindfulness
  • relaxation techniques
  • correct breathing techniques
  • cognitive therapy 
  • behaviour therapy
  • counselling  
  • dietary adjustments
  • exercise
  • learning to be assertive
  • building self-esteem
  • structured problem solving
  • medication
  • support groups

Learning about anxiety

The old adage ‘knowledge is power’ applies here – learning all about anxiety is central to recovery. For example, education includes examining the physiology of the ‘flight-or-fight’ response, which is the body’s way to deal with impending danger. For people with anxiety disorders, this response is inappropriately triggered by situations that are generally harmless. Education is an important way to promote control over symptoms. Read More >
