Get Active and Move More
All the symptoms of anxiety are signals that your body is preparing to take physical exercise in some way to avoid or tackle a perceived threat. Just like when you exercise or move briskly, your breathing rate increases, your heart beats faster, you get hotter and may feel restless or be unable to settle. To give all that adrenaline, oxygen and energy an outlet, go for a 10 - 15 minute walk every day. By being more active you give your body a way to use these things up rather than having them circulate. As you walk, aim to avoid looking at the floor ad instead look up and notice what you can see around you.
What You'll Need
- 10 - 15 minutes a day to get out and walk at some point every day.
What You'll Do
Tips & Warnings
- As you walk, keep your head up and look around at what you can see around you. This shifts your focus to what is going on externally around you rather than running through internal stresses in your mind.
