26) Relieve yourself of any guilty feelings
If this is something that affects you, perhaps you lied to a loved one or cheated on a test, the only way you will get better is to fix your wrong. I know this might not be what you want to hear but unfortunately, it may be the only way. A guilty conscious is like a disease and it can manifest itself in your body and continue to grow and get worse and worse! This can be the hardest thing you do because it usually means to rehash some ugly things in your life, but to get better you have to go through the hard first. Nobody says it was going to be easy, but the idea of ending your anxiety can be a reward in and of itself.
27) Be honest with yourself
For some people, the anxiety could be rooted in something that you know you need to fix. Living a lie, never done it before, but boy oh boy, I could only imagine how exhausting it would be to keep up with the lies. If you are always telling the truth then you don’t need to remember anything! Your body has a way of dealing with your lies and it usually consists of attacks that you might be able to control at first, but it will come out. Stop lying at every part of your life, even if you’re just lying to yourself.
28) Slow down
How many times have we seen this lately. In a world that is speeding up, there is a trend that is taking over about slowing down. Try it for yourself, don’t wait for your anxiety to strike to slow down, let it become your life. Define your life not by how much you can squeeze in during your waking hours, but what you can do to get a few things done while giving yourself enough time. It might seem impossible at first, but even you had to crawl before you walked.
29) Don’t be in debt
So many people have restless nights because of financial worries. It’s a huge stressors in marriages and relationships. It can make sane people do crazy things and also can bring upon desperate measures. By eliminating stress, it is just one less thing to be a trigger or something to be on your mind. Money has the ability to give you freedom or sentence you to a metaphorical jail cell. If you are able to live within your own means and not borrow money, then do so. It is easier to live with less but owe nothing than it is to live a life that truly isn’t yours.
