6 Anxiety Life Hacks That Work

YouTuber Christine Di'Amore suffers from hypochondria (anxiety about her health). When she is suffering from an anxiety attack, she uses these 6 hacks to calm herself down: 

 

Go For a Run

 

Physical activity releases endorphins, which heighten euphoria and distracts the body from stress and anxiety.

 

Online Counseling

 

Christine likes to talk about her feelings out loud to help her understand what has triggered her anxiety. She recommends BetterHelp, the largest online counseling platform in the world, as it allows her to easily connect with a therapist on her schedule. 

 

Take a Magnesium Supplement

 

Studies have shown that magnesium deficiencies have led to mental health issues. Magnesium is a calming and relaxing material which regulates the nervous system and helps Christine with nervousness, irritability, anxiety, fear and restlessness. 

 

Do Something Your Passionate About

 

Doing something she's passionate about takes her away from her reality and current situation. For Christine, her passion is singing.

 

Read

 

Reading helps to calm Christine's thoughts. One of her recommendations: Don't Sweat the Small Stuff  by Richard Carlson.

 

Daily Meditation

 

Anxiety is a thought pattern that we create. This pattern needs to be reversed by re-writing the circuits in our brain. Christine does this through daily meditation, using such apps as Calm, Simple Habit and Aura.
