10 Ways To Focus And Fight Anxiety

Ways To Focus And Reduce AnxietyIf you’re one to suffer from anxiety, these 10 ways to focus and fight anxiety from OpposingViews.com will be of interest to you. Whilst a number of them appear to be more about improving your ability to focus, there are a number of suggestions such as meditation and being present now which may just help with anxiety. I’ve excerpted the first of 10 points.
  1. Meditate – meditation is the best way to clear you mind and get focus or clarity. Doing it daily for an extended period of time (just a few minutes) can lead to a better quality of life and teach you to quickly clear your head almost on command.
  2. Take a break – turn off the TV, shut down the computer, turn off your phone, laptop, tablet.. clear all of the distractions and just relax. De-cluttering your surroundings for a little while each day can help you relax and re-focus. Doing so for an hour or so before bedtime can help you sleep better as well.
  3. Declutter your surroundings – removing visual and auditory clutter from your surroundings in your office, workroom, study, and/or bedroom can help you to keep focus and relax.
  4. Breathe – simple and effective, taking a few deep breaths can act as a sort of on-demand meditation technique to help you relax and clear your mind.
  5. Be present now – by thinking only about what’s happening right now. Forget the past and future and focus on the now. Doing this can remove negative thoughts and change your perspective. Click here to view the whole article
I do think that these 10 ways to focus and fight anxiety are great tips for focusing, as I said in the opening paragraph, but I’m not massively convinced about their ability to fight anxiety. A friend of mine suffered from anxiety for a number of years, and she was put on medication. I’m not sure these 10 tips would have really helped her. She actually cured her anxiety by coming off the medication after conducting her own research to find out how to help her anxiety. She found out that by exercising daily, eating very well (with a full understanding of nutrition) and taking natural supplements she was able to fight it. It goes to prove that medication is not always the best route to solve problems such as this one.
