Eat, Pray & Live.

Our up-and-down and all around weather in Colorado can actually impact your vibe.

Whether you struggle with natural day-to-day worries or a clinically diagnosed disorder, you may need support for common anxiety.

Conventional treatments like medicine and psychotherapy are popular ways of dealing with anxiety, but there are many natural approaches — including some fairly simple (and perhaps unexpected) lifestyle adjustments that work well with our Colorado lifestyle.

Here are a few of the most common natural remedies for anxiety:

1. Diet:

What goes in is what comes out.

A well-balanced diet is one of the most important and well-known facets of dealing with stress and anxiety.

It’s also crucial to drink plenty of water and limit trips to Starbucks and, well booze (especially alone).

Both of which can spike anxiety.

You may find increasing minerals like zinc and magnesium helpful too.

2. Supplements: 

There are certain herbs and vitamins known to support our bodies as they deal with stress.

Keep in mind that some herbs can negatively interact with medicines, so please discuss supplements with your doctor.

3. Exercise: 

Regular workouts can decrease tension, elevate and stabilize mood, support sleep, and improve self-esteem.

Even five minutes of aerobic exercise can stimulate anti-anxiety effects.

Yoga can also reduce stress and anxiety because it involves breathing techniques, relaxation, and taming the body’s stress response through a lower heart rate and blood pressure.

The great thing about yoga? You can do it anywhere.

4. Music, Meditation & Prayer:

This powerful combinationcan help the body and mind regulate what might be a stress point in your life. A quiet time to begin your daily journey is key.

Music can impact your groove and make you feel good at the same time (you will never tire of that favorite song on the radio).

Lastly, no one is an island.

Make time for a nice chat, coffee or phone call with someone you care about daily.
