Breathing Exercise

Breathing Exercise is often used in different type of therapy that can beat anxiety. Sometimes anxiety disorder can be associated with hyperventilation such as when a person is experiencing panic attack. To help you in conquering anxiety symptoms, breathing exercise will help immensely. It provides your body with the right amount of Carbon Dioxide which can improve your heart beat and blood pressure.


Another technique that has been proven to help those who are suffering from severe anxiety disorder would be shouting or yelling. The idea of shouting is that you are letting your stress out. See to it that you will find a private place where you can shout without any inhibition. This technique can be silly and fun. You can also throw some stuff, wrestle with your pillow and just release the things that you keep inside. After a long week of accumulating stress, a mere shout can definitely do wonders in overcoming anxiety.

Finally, it will also help if you have someone to talk with regarding your anxiety. Overcoming anxiety does not necessarily mean that you have to tackle it on your own. Seek the help of your loved ones when conquering anxiety.
