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.

When words fail music speaks to your heart.

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.

Art calms the soul. It’s pretty too! In Belmar check out First Fridays all season.

You might even consider some alternatives from our friends at Light Shade in Colorado

Light Shade is a proud supporter of 96.9 the Cloud.

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

And maybe?

Just maybe it’s time for a nice juicy steak!

Gourmet Meats is located at 9168 West Jewell Avenue in Lakewood, Colorado.

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.

Now with 6 metro locations including Lakewood and Littleton.

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.

Might be the perfect time to take advantage of your Jeffco travel experts at All Inclusive Vacations & Cruises.

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.

It’s all about Colorado Living in the Cloud!

4.  Music, Meditation & Prayer:

This powerful combination can 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).

Your new beginning with a simple click!

Lastly, no one is an island.

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

It’s called: The best friend method.

The Academy Award Winning movie and classic music of Queen just might be the remedy!

Final Week: Cuba comes to Colorado.

Director Peter Changs breathtaking IMAX film Cuba is in its final days at The Denver Museum of Nature and Science.

If you’ve not seen the film or exhibit, it’s very well worth the short trip into Denver to catch the final week and there are still plenty of tickets available.

After a special screening last weekend, the Cloud caught up with the inspired director Peter Chang about his masterpiece work: Cuba.

Director Peter Chang on location in Havana, Cuba.

What inspired you to make this film?

I knew very little about this country only 90 miles of the coast of the U.S. but from what little I’d seen in films I knew I had to go. And when I did I couldn’t put my camera down. There was something special around every corner. I’m attracted to textures and character.

I don’t find much inspiration in new skyscrapers or the latest cars. I like handmade things, vintage things, lived in things, old buildings with interesting histories. It’s so unusual to interact with strangers these days what with everyone staring into smart phones.

The art of film in Cuba.

In Cuba I talk to more people in a day than in a week here at home, it makes everything an adventure. You have to ask for directions because there’s no GPS, and you may never get where you meant to go but you will make a new friend or see a great band. I wanted to provide a glimpse of the passionate people and vibrant culture there.

What was the biggest challenge in creating this wonderful motion picture?

Getting all the permits and visas for a film of this scale with this many locations had never taken place in Cuba before.

There were a great deal of unpredictable variables to navigate.

During the course of filming, there were two major hurricanes. Both Cuba and the U.S. changed Presidents and both the Pope and the Rolling Stones visited the island causing whole neighborhoods to be locked down for security purposes. We also filmed in a protected marine park which is highly restricted. And got special permission to film aerials in military airspace.

From the film, you’ll be amazed at what a key role the arts play in Cuban Society and Culture.

Do you have any additional projects in the works featuring Cuba?

Yes, we have an feature length film as well as a TV series.

We can hardly wait!

Peter H. Chang is an award-winning director, producer, and cinematographer based in San Francisco, California. A pioneer in the use of large format 3D motion-control time-lapse capture systems, Peter’s cinematography for IMAX and giant screens includes National Geographic’s JERUSALEM, PANAMA, MacGillivray Freeman’s NATIONAL PARKS ADVENTURE, and PLANET POWER.

Editors Note: The film is simply breathtaking. Rich with vibrant color, images and a spectacular music soundtrack. Well worth the visit to another treasure: The Denver Museum of Nature and Science.

The Art + Zen of Bill Murray.

There’s a very pleasing and amusing little song playing on 96.9 the Cloud that both stands out and fits in perfectly with the likes of Vance Joy, Colbie Caillat and most of the happy pop tunes you hear on the Cloud. 

In fact, the song is called Happy Street and it’s performed by none other than Bill Murray. The Mark Twain Kennedy Center Honoree, Lost in Translation star, Tootsie co-star and yes, every golfers favorite movie: Caddyshack.

Yup, that Bill Murray.

Mr. Murray recently shared his genius at The Bellco Theater and last week was back on Saturday Night Live for a guest shot in it’s cold open.  So, what’s the story with his appeal? We did a little digging and it turns out, the world loves this guy because he reminds us of a better version of ourselves, without having to.

In his own words: the Art & Zen of Bill Murray.

WHAT IT’S LIKE TO BE BILL MURRAY

Nothing prepared me for being this awesome. It’s kind of a shock to wake up every morning and be bathed in this purple light. There’s a wonderful sense of well-being that begins to circulate . . . up and down your spine. And you feel something that makes you almost want to smile. So what’s it like to be me? Ask yourself, ‘What’s it like to be you?’ The only way we’ll ever know what it’s like to be you is if you work your best at being you as often as you can, and keep reminding yourself that’s where home is.

From a 2014 Q&A during Canada’s Bill Murray Day, via Rolling Stone

HE LIVES HIS LIFE

I live a little bit on the seat of my pants, I try to be alert and available for life to happen to me. We’re in this life, and if you’re not available, the sort of ordinary time goes past and you didn’t live it. But if you’re available, life gets huge. You’re really living it.

From an interview on CBS This Morning

ON BEING RELAXED

The more relaxed you are, the better you are at everything. The better you are with your loved ones, the better you are with your enemies, the better you are at your job, the better you are with yourself.
