Anxiety, the body's natural response to stress, can be debilitating to some, causing increased alertness, fear, and physical symptoms, like a rapid heart rate, irritability, fatigue, sweating, insomnia, nausea, palpitations, and even trembling. The Doctors share 6 different approaches to dealing with anxiety, and some of them can be used at a moment's notice because you never know when it may strike!
Justin Bieber shared his trick for warding off an anxiety attack, which is the grounding technique. Using sight, touch, smell, and taste, it helps someone remain in the present and pulls you out of focusing on past or future events. The Doctors also note another way to ground yourself in an anxious moment is to stop and press your feet and toes into the floor and take a moment to remind yourself where you right at that moment. Get more on how the grounding technique can help with anxiety, in the video above.
Another music star who deals with anxiety is Camila Cabello, who suggests inhaling for 5 seconds through the nose, and exhaling for 5 seconds through the mouth can help ease your anxious feelings.
Helping an anxious child in need might seem daunting, but The Doctors and Elycia Rubin, author of the children's book “No Biggy!: A Story About Overcoming Everyday Obstacles” share suggestions and tips on how parents can help to ease a child suffering from anxiety, frustration, and stress.
If you are hit with feelings of anxiety or a panic attack, something as simple as placing your hand in a bowl of ice or holding a few ice cubes, covering up with a weighted blanket, or exercising can ease your symptoms.
Insetad of placing something on your body, you might focus on what you're putting in your body! The Doctors share a delicious smoothie, made with almond milk, almonds, strawberries, and banana, that may help to combat your high cortisol and stress levels. Get the recipe for this anti-anxiety smoothie shot.
Dr. Travis Strork's mantra of "Let food be your medicine!" applies to anxiety as well. He suggests the next time you're feeling anxious to reach for these foods: salmon (which can help regulate your dopamine and serotonin levels in your brain), pumpkin seeds (which are high in potassium which helps to regulate blood pressure), and asparagus (which is rich in chromium) and has been shown to reduce anxiety.
