Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Do you suffer through having anxiety attacks every day of your life now? Do you feel powerless when your heart starts racing, you begin sweating, or that sick feeling in your stomach reappears yet again? Have you grown fearful of certain situations or events in your life; due to some very negative and awful thoughts swirling around in your head? Are you searching for ways in how to relieve anxiety; a disorder that has taken over your very being?

If you are experiencing anxiety attacks, I am one individual who understands your problem. I suffered through many such attacks during a very traumatic period in my life about fifteen years ago. Let me make one statement of hope for you. If I can overcome the attacks and come out of the state of depression that I was in, you can as well. I learned that there are 3 key tips which will stop anxiety attacks from being the event which has come to control your life.

1. Prescription Medication will never be the permanent solution to your disorder

If you think that the bottle of pills that you take daily will be the permanent answer to your problem, let me assure you of one thing my friend. Nothing can be further from the truth. Medication prescribed by any licensed doctor for any problems, (and this is not just limited to anxiety attacks) only provide short term solutions. Regarding anxiety and stress those pills that you have been taking recently only address the symptoms; not the attacks themselves. Your symptoms before an impending attack may be a racing heart, chills, sweaty palms, or a highly agitated state of nervousness. But any pills that you take do not address the root cause as to why you have anxiety attacks. If you want to learn how to relieve anxiety, do not for a moment believe that prescription medication is the permanent solution. Besides which, a long term reliance on medication can come with possible negative side effects as a result of one’s downing those pills daily.

2. Learn Behavior Modification Techniques as a way in how to relieve anxiety

You need to know one key factor as being the likely cause for your devastating anxiety attacks. You had a very negative event which has already taken place in your life. Or, there is an upcoming, and in your mind dreadful event that will take place soon in your life, (being forced to give a speech in front of a large audience, taking an important exam, or flying on a long distance flight). The event itself is called a trigger. Your mind dwells upon this event, (trigger) to the point in which it negatively impacts every thought consciously or even subconsciously. As a method in how to relieve anxiety you must identify the trigger, and then force yourself not to dwell on it 24/7. A great behavior modification technique would be for you to engage in some type of activity, or hobby. Get yourself involved in an activity: reading, chess, knitting, gardening, and anything else which will relax your mind away from that trigger. Also think about getting involved in an exercise program, yoga, meditation, or practice deep breathing exercises.

3. Have a strong support system

As a tip in how to relieve anxiety the importance of friends and family cannot be overlooked. It was because of my strong support system that I was able to get through the dark days of my life. You do not have to go through it by yourself. As a matter of fact I strongly advise you to seek out those people who are closest to you as a source of strength. Talk to a family member or friend whenever your mind begins dwelling on negative thoughts. In my case I found out that by talking to those people closest to me, I fed off of the positive vibes that I clearly felt coming from their beings. You will as well, as you eventually come to regain control of the anxiety that has come to rule over you.

Through these 3 key tips, you can learn how to relieve anxiety. It is a condition that need not control you for the rest of your life. Not relying on medication to be the permanent solution, engaging yourself in a pro-active hobby, and drawing strength from family members and friends will eventually enable you to eliminate the anxiety and stress that has controlled you.
