Overcoming Anxiety

Overcoming Anxiety

Overcoming anxiety disorder is achievable with just a little bit of hard work.

When I first made the decision of overcoming anxiety disorder I tried a number of different methods.

First method I tried with overcoming anxiety disorder was medication per my doctor’s recommendations. I was on Aropax, valium and xanax. Xanax just made me sleepy all the time and Aropax and valium had the opposite effect and actually increased my anxiety.

It was at this point I decided to withdraw from medication, as I was looking for a solution that would help overcoming anxiety disorder certainly not increase my anxiety!

I then resorted to natural methods of finding a way of overcoming anxiety disorder.

I tried relaxation tapes, meditation (meditation is difficult to master at the best of times, and if you intend to try this method of overcoming anxiety disorder I recommend you dedicate at least half an hour everyday to it for at least 6 months), however the fastest results I found for overcoming anxiety disorder came from distraction techniques.

Using distraction techniques I was overcoming anxiety disorder within the first week. There are a variety of distraction techniques you can use when overcoming anxiety disorder. It is a matter of finding what best suits you for your situation.
