Did you know that more women are more likely to suffer from anxiety than men? More than two times more likely in fact, than men to have an anxiety disorder. The feelings of stress, worry, and fear can often become overwhelming for people. Anxiety impairs us in our daily lives, causing issues at home, work, and in relationships. Here are some simple activities that you can do daily, to help manage anxiety in women, and in anyone else.
A study from 2007 published in the Journal of the American Art Therapy Association found that people who drew art vs people who sorted through art after listing their current anxieties, reported a significant improvement in their well-being and negative moods. Drawing for anxiety increases mindfulness, can be a welcomed distraction from a stressful situation, and proves relaxing.
An affirmation is a type of positive statement usually directed at oneself for the purpose of teaching self-love. While at the same time diminishing feelings of overwhelm, worry and fear. Research conducted by Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience at Oxford University suggests that anxiety affirmations work by activating the reward system in your brain. Repeating a statement to yourself can give it power and meaning. Enough repetition and intention can influence your brain into believing the statement. Anxiety affirmations, in addition to other exercises, are an easy easy way to cope with feelings of fear and panic.
