Let us know in the comments below. Proper planning — setting expectations and giving everyone a road map has really helped reduce last minute project stress and has prevented people from bloating project.
Thank you for sharing! Slack can definitely provide value, but the more face to face interaction, the better. It tends to de-escalate stressful situations. Hi Jeff, may I put a link to your article on my website?
And with your article also some tips, too. The expectation is higher, besides the workmates are cold and unfriendly, kinda feel nervous all the time.
I really liked the tips in this article: It really does make a huge difference. A nice reminder to stay focused on being unstressed. Hi Jeff, thanks for sharing! I love the infographic! Is there anyway that I can print out just the infographic? I would love to be able to post on my HR Corner board for my employees! OK, there is an awesome list of tips. Now for my own perspective of what is a major belief of my own on anxiety but I have never heard about it.
I have ridden a bicycle around the entire united states and learned what dehydration, starvation, over exhaustion, hypothermia and more can do to my body and how tough my body actually is.
However, after years of stress, large amounts of coffee and chocolates with normal amounts of alcohol I succumbed to anxiety. I have learned that when I have consumed alcohol and other stimulant drinks and foods that it can always re-appear. I believe once you have anxiety you will always be susceptible to it, but less and less as time goes. The event of anxiety is very basic to me. I get amped up for some reason and then my body secretes adrenalin. Once that happens and I am sitting still my heart goes on a race and the mind follows.
The real key is to stay as calm as you can, find someone to console and tell yourself you are going to be just fine as this has happened dozens of times and nothing bad ever actual happens except the racing heart, heavy breathing and wacky fear of the oddest things. Anyhow, I truly truly truly believe that a large part of anxiety it the result of a relaxed and perhaps damaged adrenal gland that can tend to let the strong drug of adrenalin run into your veins when you do not need it.
I believe that these things all effect and damage the controlling tissues of the adrenal gland which allow it to open uncontrollably and let the adrenaline flow way too much into your blood stream to your heart and mind. Once the adrenal gland is so greatly opened I believe it can be damaged and stretched to an abnormal tightness which is why an event can happen just minutes, hours or days after another and it also explains why the longer you go without an event the better you can handle more extremes.
BUT, beware that…once you have experienced anxiety you can always have it again. I really like your article. I think most of your suggestions are right on, As a physician that developed anxiety and panic attacks in medical school, I have personal experience on how miserable it is. I think the behavioral and life style interventions you mentioned would help many people. But I have seen many patients obsessed with trying to find something abnormal in their labs and tests that would explain their illness.
I would much rather someone follow your sleep and play recommendations rather than pound a ton of b12 and assume it fixes the problem. Lab testing for b12 is rife with issues —the mayo clinic lab podcast has more info on this-such that testing methylmalonic acid is more accurate anyway.
I wish omega 3 was the magic bullet everyone claims it to be. All it did for me was raise my LDL cholesterol through the roof. Your personal experience is helpful but research studies help look past the bias in subjective experience, and in more than a few people. But 15 mg daily of methylfolate might be helpful for mood. Especially if you have a mfthr mutation like myself.
There is a fine line betweeen body hacking for your benefit ane body hacking so the lab gets rich. Apparently we are happier when we are in the moment- feeling happy or not anxious hitting golf balls or playing seems to go with this thought. My favorite way to reduce anxiety is through meditation.
Even a couple minutes with deep breathing upon waking switches the body from the sympathetic to the parasympathetic nervous system. Writing in a gratitude journal also helps to switch the focus from what you are worried about, to what you are happy about. This helps to ground and appreciate the good things in life. Something else before you can start this stuff: It may be little crap you have been putting off.
You should have that eliminated sorry Tim! I have fallen off the wagon, but I have found doing that gets you in a better place to start working on the play piece. My best way of alleviating anxiety: Forces me to focus on another living thing. Makes me realize my reality is greater than myself.
Thanks Charlie and Tim for the great two-parter. I gave up Facebook for Lent a few years ago, got re-addicted and then just pulled the plug again February 1. It continues to be one of the best things for removing stress and comparison envy. Congrats on the new book Charlie! I wish I could relax. I have PTSD and have tried all sorts of things. I have never heard of the T. Here is a demo on it: Interestingly it works if you tap a doll as well. The power of placebo is miraculous, I recommend tapping.
I notice a difference as soon as I stray from my TM practice. II recognise a few of these symptoms, I eat well and I love my Karate but my sleep has been disturbed by a couple of toilet breaks during the night due to my cups of tea after work. I seriously missing the play list, so that is the first thing on list to do immediately. I might buy Charlies book. So, here are the actions I just took and will add to as I get this stuff dialed in: Set a reminder in my calendar at 10pm every night to get ready for bed as 7am would be ideal to wake up refreshed from.
Put a nap in my calendar for 2pm every day. Just bought the TRE book. Very much looking forward to doing those exercises! This was going so well until 4, 5, and 6! Cutting out aspartame, TRE, and some supplements is just a way to spend money for some placebo. I guess whatever works though. But TRE is kinda insulting to those who actually have truama. Might take your mind off it for a second, but you probably need some emotional therapy for that one.
Glad your anxiety was cured though. Mine still flares up time to time, but sleep and activity really helped me. Never been a conspiracy guy, so not too worried about the news— but it is a time waster for sure.
Although, above all, accepting the fact that I had anxiety and not searching for a way to cure it was the best thing I ever did. Kinda sounds counter-intuitive, but the day I stopped dwelling on a lack of a cure was the day I got better. Funny you would say that, Mark. Berceli actually developed TRE after working in war-torn areas as a tool to release trauma. He works with soldiers and veterans too. Anyone considering getting the book, get the DVD instead.
It has a brief description of the entire process which is more than enough if you dont want to go deep into the theory , and a real-time demonstration of all the exercises that you can follow along with. I will say that even moderate amounts of alcohol As in getting even just tipsy a couple times a week definitely exacerbates anxiety for me. Hi Mark, thanks for voicing your concerns. One thing I noticed while working with Tim on The 4-Hour Body is that there are always disagreements and skepticism about what actually works when it comes to individual health.
What I did might work for you, or it might not. What worked for me is backed up by a good amount of data and scientific research. The B12 may have been a placebo, I suppose, but I was tracking how I felt during the weeks I made that change. It helped my mental clarity significantly. The one part of your comment I took issue with was the suggestion that TRE could cure the psychological effects of war. But Yash above is right in that Dr. Berceli developed that technique in war-torn areas of the world.
You mentioned a ton of research backing up TRE. There is strong snake oily smell on TRE and I have been trying to find research on it with no results so far. That is how i found this article by the way. Have you tried TRE Mark? Give it a shot before you dismiss it, you may be surprised: I appreciate this post and the focus on a holistic approach.
Reducing caffeine was a big one for me as well as a regular exercise. A daily probiotic also helped. Getting away from the news and spending time outdoors is key as well.
I also found some great breathing apps that really helped sync my breath and heartbeat to just slow down and be present with the breath. I recently read about Ivan Lendl and how he made to 1 in the tennis rankings by reducing his anxiety.
This technique has worked well for me. He is not looking forward to this cocktail party at all, but he is going to try to make the best out of it. Now the policeman is waving him on, and he is parking his car. The same exercise can obviously be applied to tennis. I use this technique when any anxiety pops up. Firstly thinking of myself in the 3rd person instantly puts a smile on my face; by picturing myself as some guy from Eastern Europe learning English for the first time.
However witnessing your actions makes the choice to not feel anxious an easier one…. I believe Leo Babauta said it best over on Zen Habits.
If you are worried about something coming up, or caught up in something that already happened, breathe. It will bring you back to the present. Along with vitamins, I have found that some Essential oils have helped me as well. I concur that when growers produce the same crop year after, there is a reduction of a available nutrient. That being said, cultural practices of crop rotation and better soil testing have lead to better crop quality in commercial farming…but there is no substitute for home grown.
Grow a garden or join a co-operative program where food items are grown closer and nutrient quality is better. One time, I got invited to play on a national broadcast before an audience of When I got the call, I realized that this chance might never come again.
I also acknowledged that despite my excitement, there was no guarantee that anything further would come from it. So, I made the decision that I would go to have a great time and not even bother considering any potential future outcomes, good or bad. The singer I accompanied on the piano and just met had one run through, went out and did it, and had that lightning in a bottle moment.
Best performance ever and a total blast. Worrying about the result, inundating myself with negative self-talk, and freaking out about mistakes do a lot more damage to me than shaking hands and my heart beating out of my chest. It may sound kind of weird, but I think I kind of need the latter! Why it was easier for me to make and follow through with that decision before an audience of than it was before an audience of 20, I have no clue! Good for you if you could manage it.
I mentioned one instance of success overcoming anxiety and referred to many more of non-success without any details on the latter. Or is it just musicians? Anxiety definitely needs to be kept in check and these are some great suggestions. Your better off just eating a healthy, well-balanced diet than you are trying to cure specific deficiencies somehow.
Taking folic acid instead of methylfolate is dangerous. Very poorly designed study. You basically allow yourself to feel all the anxiois feelings, emotions, and physical manifestations and they will eventually pass. Dare them to do their worst to you. Really tell the panic to give you hell the feel it go until completion.
Your comment reminded me of that scene in fight club with the acid on the hand haha. But this is kinda a buddhist way of thinking about it. The real insidious problem with anxiety is dwelling on the situation and the anticipatory dread of anxiety— not the anxiety itself.
While anxiety really sucks, you may never be able to control it or eradicate it. You must then accept it. The only thing you can control is how you view it. Elliot Hulse had a video about this some time ago. Basically allowing all those random movement patterns to manifest in a crazy outburst of all your pentup energy. Put here weeks ago, I experienced a post menopausal hip fracture and complete joint replacement. I cannot describe the tension that is building in my body. I am anxious to learn ways to quickly dissipate this tension.
Please consider me in this contest to win a copy of Trauma Releasing Exercises. The article was great. I can relate to much of this. I recently added hula hooping as a fun way to play and exercise. The great thing is you can share the activity with others or alone. I like to decompress by spending time outside with my daughters, just walking, riding bikes, or kicking a soccer ball around. We also like to go the beach to walk and breathe in the salty air and put our toes in the sand….
I agree with the pet therapy also…. Loved your article…really great stuff. Especially interested in the T. Never heard of that before. Going to give that a go with me first. After a single dose, my ability to concentrate and my overall energy spikes considerably.
The fats in our own cell walls are in the phospholipid form, and so this makes krill oil much more bioavailable for our bodies. This seemed to be the best value brand for the money on amazon. One of the best realizations for me was when it occurred to me that if my mind could take me to hell, I could teach it how to get out of hell, too. Connecting to a sense of grace, mystery and community has been key.
Thank you so much for posting this! A simple and effective starter kit for all of us adults who have forgotten how to play — of course the gift of play is that it is infinite, so it is also always a learning process.
Water is something that is especially effective in helping me to decompress and breathe! Playing my drum kit is very relaxing as well — especially for my voice somehow. We tend to hold a lot of tension in our faces — everyday I give my face a massage from the outside, using my fingers and hands, and also from the inside, by contorting and twisting my face, sometimes in the mirror, sometimes not. Nothing cheesy about it friend — animals are good friends and have so much to teach: I feel like you just singlehandedly, without knowing me, told me what has been wrong with me lately, I cannot wait to wake up in the morning, and try to begin to start applying these things to my life!
My favorite pre-bed relaxation read is poetry. Because its beautiful and I love how it makes me feel, but I never understand it well to really re-engage my mind like most fiction does. Funny thing with anxiety is you can experience if for years and not realize the damaging effect it is having on your mental and physical health the people around you.
Especially if you think you are getting sick or contracting illness in the work place all the time…. But now I reflect that it has impacted me at almost every stage…education, social relationships, sports performance, etc. I have struggled with anxiety most, if not all of my life.
Medication helps tremendously, but I still get breakthrough bouts that can severely incapacitate me. What I found really helps me is 1. Mindfulness-you have to be aware of what you are feeling. Write things down-I now write down things that I need to do, are bothering me, worried about and magically, the anxiety goes away.
Distraction-kind of the opposite of mindfulness, I found that once I know anxiety was affecting me, I can concentrate on other things which reduces the anxiety, whether intense exercise, being absorbed in a book, playing a video game. My anxiety peaked as my father was diagnosed and subsequently died of cancer in a 16 week span. The tremor exercises sound really interesting. I have never heard of them until this blog post.
I wonder if they might be a breakthrough. I definitely find yoga to be the best thing for me — I start a class with no neck and all breathing reaching only as far as my chest and and a class lengthened, strengthened, renewed, recharged and revived. Sometimes I end up in a tearful puddle in corpse pose, but I find that emotional release as critical as any physical challenge. As a young person struggling with post-graduate life, searching for meaningful work, relationships and friends — this article was exactly what I needed.
I recently moved to New York City to pursue Improv comedy after taking a class last month in Chicago. It changed my life. This article provides me with more ways to continue that progression away from anxiety and closer to a satisfying peace of mind.
My advice on reducing anxiety: Wake up in the morning and remind yourself about your goals, your ambitions and your desires. These will ground you, in YOU, and help you remain focused and alert. Anxiety will be replaced by productivity and happiness. My favorite technique is to listen to deep relaxation audio in my car at lunchtime. Really helps break up the day like your nap suggestion.
I used to have anxiety a couple of years ago……not sure if it was intuition or just accident that I started practicing Yoga and also started doing breathing exercises…. Women usually are very much in tune with their energy bodies I think the reason for this is differences in pelvic structure of men and women. In any case, anxiety, in my opinion, is a result of trapped energy when energy is not able to move freely through the body — it manifests in different forms — anxiety, anger, sexual dysfunctions etc.
When you get anxious, pay attention to where in your body you feel the anxiety…. For me, spending time playing with my kids works a treat, as does any form of exercise, so long as I focus on the exercise itself. Fill a Nalgene up with your favorite 3 buck chuck wine from Trader Joes.
Then head down to your local golf driving range. Golf is fun when its mildly competitive and involves drinking! I love to go to the Reflexologist at the shopping mall. She gives a very intense foot and leg massage that leaves me feeling terrific 2. Feed birds at the park. Makes me feel like a million dolars to feed wild animals 3.
I was trained in the pain clinic of our state university to lead hypnosis in others for the sake of pain research and relief. As part of that training I was taught self-hypnosis. I write out everything that is on my plate and prioritize tasks, often planning when I will do them. Also, I usually add some quick tasks, so that I can start crossing things off my list right away and feel like I have accomplished something.
I am really excited to read this book. I was recently in my hometown and had dinner with a wonderful old friend. I honestly could not remember the last time I had fun.
This realization shocked and terrified me, and I decided that fun needed to be a part of my life once more. I became exhausted and bitter about some commitments that should have been fun. It started to affect my relationships because I never had time for my family because I made myself so busy.
I thought about scaling back for years but the time was never right. Unfortunately it took a major health scare to put it in perspective for me. If I were to die today would I want my last day to be spent indoors in a a meeting?
And these were volunteer meetings! The funny thing to me was all the replies I got from fellow volunteers and colleagues telling me how they completely understood and wistfully wished they could do the same. Thanks so much for the writing this post! I admire your courage, Charlie. Excellent posts on anxiety! For me I found getting everything all my open loops out of my head.
Everything I want, need, or have to do, no matter how far or immediate in the future, I get out of my head and on to paper my mental inbox. I find that my anxiety centers around trying to fill every moment of my time with productivity. For me, this usually just a cup of good coffee. While I sit with it, I just pay attention to enjoying the coffee, and nothing else.
Congrats on taking back your life, Charlie, and for sharing your story for others. Your removal of news reminded me of something Andrew Weil once said. He said you need to take a news break. Constant exposure to bad, horrible things the news makes you feel powerless and frightened. I stopped watching the news that day. Bad news travels fast and there are no shortages of transmission.
There is only this one life and I feel I owe it to my ancestors to lead as fun and fulfilling life as I can.
This is not a dress rehearsal! I am a former workaholic, cured and retired!! The body and the mind are intrinsically linked together. How you treat your body effects how and what you think about. This can be proven by that fact that many of us are able to think more clearly, get more work done, and be more productive when we eat healthy, get exercise, and drink plenty of water. Studies have show that exercise and diet have a direct effect on hormone levels such as Testosterone and GH.
Both of which, especially testosterone, has been proven to reduce instances of depression. The fact is, they both need to be optimally functioning in order for one or the other to be able to function at full capacity or anywhere near it! Bikram works well for me. I love the feeling of being physically wrung out at the end of class, the calm of the guided class and focusing on my breath to slow down my heart rate while struggling just to get through class. Somehow I find this incredibly soothing.
That change to my life promoted me to eat cleaner and quit gluten, which was life changing-I was able to come off a low dose andi-depressant after ten years.
And deep tissue to the point of pain massage. I am a freelancer and often work from home. I find that if i stay cooped up in the house for too long, my world becomes smaller and many anxieties begin to develop.
Purposely finding myself outdoors or in another environment calms me down and usually inspires me to do fun, side projects. I also make sure that I reflect each day on the things, events, or people im grateful for or appreciate. I write this down either in a journal or a piece of paper and drop it into a happy jar. Without detail, I will only state that chronic panic attacks initially cost me at least six jobs -- six jobs, my God.
The reason for the dismissals? My employers suspected I was either drinking on the job or drugging on the job. I have never considered doing such a thing -- I'm a hard-working girl who only sought to do my best for my employers. This aspect of panic attacks -- to me -- makes the severity of the individual's experience all-important in recommending treatment. Job loss is traumatizing. Losing jobs over something that I couldn't anticipate, understand or discuss with my employers has been more frightening than the condition itself.
I first started getting panic attacks when i was 16 after i "Greened Out" smoking weed. I woke up the next morning feeling odd, I haven't felt the same since. I put up with them for about a year, everyday on the bus in the morning I would get minor panic attacks. I gave up and just accepted that was my life from then on. Here we are now in , I haven't had a panic attack in over 8 years. Untill a big week off with the boys I've stayed away from drugs since my first scare A long week of neglect for my body, sleepless nights, drinking alcohol non stop and smoking cigarettes like a bloody chimney.
The first day back at work, BOOM! This made me rethink my lifestyle so I have quit smoking, caffeine and general unhealthy eating, I am currently 3 months into quitting smoking. I have had 3 cigarettes in the past 3 months and each of them triggered a panic attack. About 2 months ago I started getting pretty bad Insomnia, I find myself constantly waking up throughout the night and cannot get back to sleep. There is a link between Anxiety and Insomnia, throw a little nicotine and caffeine withdrawls in there and 2 months later I still can't get a decent nights sleep.
I have tried a few herbal remedies and sleeping aids with no success, I believe that the Insomnia is caused by my high Anxiety. Does anybody else suffer from Insomnia? Please let me know if anyone has any remedies worth trying.
Valarian root helped me sleep soundly but not in a coma crazy sleep meds just a calm comfortable sleeeep. Had the same problem. Been taking homeopathic medicine called Sleep Naturally. It contains Glycine,Theanine and Magnesium.
These all help with anxiety ,and has a calming effect on the brain and helps reach deep sleep faster. This medication helps with sleep without the "morning hangover" effect associated with prescription medications. Also therapy and meditation help too! So I strongly recommend that too. Also writing down the things that are bothering you ,write down everything! I recovered from over fifteen years of panic disorder and agoraphobia by attending free meetings held by Recovery International.
They have online meetings as well as meetings in many towns throughout the U. A and severa countries. Please visit their website at Recoveryinternational. Little, if any relief. My life has been more rough than happy. Poor self esteem, destructive; reckless, poor decisions, etc. I was 6 months into a new job and it was going down hill. I thought I should try for more structured medical help.
I committed to regular care with a psychiatrist, psychologist, plus my internal medicine doctor -for severe anxiety, panic attacks, borderline personality disorder, agoraphobia, depression. More prescribed drugs and little relief. I just turned Hormones are now in play. And I am worse than ever. I feel hopelessly lost, isolated, and have given up trying.
I have no friends. I rarely get dressed. And rarely leave my apartment. Negative thoughts swirl in my head nonstop. My unemployment benefits will end the first week of January My mother has never liked me. She has always shamed me for lack of motivation, and my mental illness.
My personal and professional relationships have dropped off to near zero. I have a BA. My jobs have been above average in pay. I average a year at each; I do well for a couple months then self destruct due to stress, and then grandly fired. The job before that I made poor decisions, and was aggressive. Just talking to someone can help. As you said, you can't find someone to confide in.
Or at least, I don't want to dump on friends and family as that can turn people away. Wish there were local anxiety support groups. I started having panic attacks 35 yrs ago. I was lucky enough to find a support group way back then. The awareness of the severity was not known back then, yet there was a support group.
I cannot believe there isn't any place where you can talk to others with the same or similar problems. My thought are with you. Hello I'm just trying to seek help I barley leave the house if need be to go to work and food shopping I work close to home and pay 6 dollars a day to catch a cab right around the corner today I had another panic attack I've been dealing with this since I was 15 I am now 20 I dropped outta school this is and has ruined my life I can't go out and enjoy my life like I should I feel trapped in 1 city 1 place and feel like I need a income therapist but I'm told old,that's what I was told to the resources in my city please help me I just want my life back.
