Anxious? Reduce anxiety in a giffy.(1 min read)

Anxiety can hit us out of nowhereWhen travelling on an air plane or on a bus or even before giving an presentation, feeling of being stuck can really trigger it.

So, to make your anxiety go away right then and there, follow these 3 simple steps :

  • Take a deep breath in and hold it.
  • While holding in your breath tense every muscle of your body for 5-6 sec. Squeeze your facial muscle and every muscle from head to toe.
  • Now relax your body while you exhale slowly.

That’s it ! The above exercise triggers the parasympathatic nervous system of your body to come into play, thus calming your nerves naturally.

I came across this exercise while ago and it helped me overcome anxiety.

Hope it helps you too 🙂
