At such moments I try to set aside time for relaxation and look at old photos where I'm happy.

Yoga has been a big help for me. I never really liked it cause I'm not as flexible as everyone but the breathing exercise really helped me calm down and just be in the moment.

Meditation has been helpful to reduce stress and mood swings. Just found new good meditation video from Great Meditation channel: https://shrinke.me/RYmBYe1. Additionally, workout (cardio, gym) in the mornings has helped a lot.

From eating chocolate to meditating, there is a quick stress-relieving tactic for everyone.
  1. Breathe. Slow, deep breaths can help lower blood pressure and heart rate. 
  2. Listen to Music. 
  3. Take a Quick Walk. 
  4. Find the Sun. ...
  5. Give Yourself a Hand Massage.

Exercising can help to reduce anxiety and stress. Yoga is also an effective way of reducing anxiety and stress levels. Eating healthy foods, such as vegetables, fruits, whole grains, proteins, and certain spices, can also help reduce anxiety and stress.

My stress grew a lot since remote work started with the pandemic. I've experienced some high levels of stress and burnout I've never experienced before. 

thinkremote.com blog posts have some great tips on mental health for remote employees, you could check them to analyse some different perspectives.

Howevder, follow a schedule, meditate every day, and don't over work. If you're out of time, extra hours would help you get the work done but you'll suffer some bad consequences at the end of the week. Trust me, there's nothing like psychological health for a happier life.

Listen to your inner voice.. If you want to reduce your stress, do things that make you happy.

You can do yoga, exercise and eat a healthy diet. But apart from this, you can also mediate which will also make you feel calm and peaceful.

Listening to some guided mediation can give you some relief.

Sound healing mediation is also a great way to relieve stress and anxiety.

It's great reading these and seeing what other people do. I actually just woke up to anxiety for no reason. Usually it has an obvious reason. The odd thing about it is that any little thing can trigger it so I had to deal with this a lot, and with Covid it went nuts. But I havent used any benzos in a long time using the following techniques.

For me I use

  1. Focusing on the senses, which is basically a mindfulness meditation

  2. I try to find what thought or feeling is causing the issue and nullify it. There usually is something in the back of your mind. The subconscious can be your worst enemy or your best friend.

  3. I get mad. Your body is triggering a fight or flight, stop the flight- start the fight. Get mad at your anxiety, tell it to fuck off.

  4. Think of it like a storm that will pass. It usually does within 30 min, 60 min for the bad ones.

  5. Improve your life. Work towards a goal you care about and get out of bad situations. Environment and situation are much larger factors thsn I realized. I just finished a big project and I feel like I accomplished something I care about so my anxiety has been better lately, I think that's a huge reason why.

  6. Do things for others. It makes you feel good about yourself and stop bad feelings like you deserve this. You don't deserve it, nobody does.

  7. Do things for you. I work 7 days a week and noticed I started to get worse as time went. I stopped doing anything fun for myself and just worked all the time. Cortisol is bad for you and you need to play to keep cortisol away.

  8. Believe. Knowing that you can stop it is a huge part of the puzzle and can help you get off of medication. Your mind works just as good without the side effects.

  9. I watch anxiety meme, funny animal videos, Staying away from social media.

  10. buy 1 lottery ticket... 

I got a lot of these, I've struggled with it pretty bad for years and finally starting to see some relief. Now, I can stop a panic attack with my mind in 5 min sometimes and they happen less frequently. You get better at it overtime.

Meditation is great for reducing anxiety and stress. You should take a look at the 'Meditation' topic in this forum for a lot of information on the different types of meditation (I myself prefer a type called mindful meditation).

 

As far as diet, consider green tea - it's well known for its calming effect. Green tea contains an amino acid called L-theanine which is responsible for the calming properties of green tea. If you aren't a tea drinker you can buy L-theanine supplements - many people try that supplement to help with stress and anxiety.
