Panic attacks and irrational behavior accommodate anxiety. Suffering from intense paranoia and anxiety can become very troublesome and may lead to negative behavior. These can be side effects of drug abuse. When someone is trying to regain control and continue on in life free from addiction, anxiety can creep in and take over. There are many people who allow anxiety to control them, but with a few helpful and natural tips, relieving stress and panic attacks can be simplified.
A handful of helpful tips:
• Maintain a healthy balanced diet
• Take a 15 minutes time-out to breath and relax
• Get a healthy amount of sleep
• Limit caffeine and alcohol intake
• Determine the stressors
Maintaining a healthy diet can change a person’s life. Sound too intense? Not at all. Food with high amounts of preservatives can weigh a person down, emotionally and physically. The change that will take place once sugar has been removed from the diet will be extremely beneficial concerning mood swings and panic attacks.
Taking 15 minutes to regroup and concentrate on oneself will relax the brain and allow it to properly function. Learning new breathing techniques can alleviate stress. Inhaling and exhaling slowly while completely focusing on each breath will relieve anxiety. Something as simple as breathing can completely alter a person’s mood.
Getting an adequate amount of sleep is one of the most important ways to stay focused and alert. The recommended amount is between seven and nine hours. Anything less than seven can cause harm on the brain resulting in mood swings, lack of concentration, and recurrent anxiety attacks. Sleep is vital to life and without it the nervous system has a difficult time functioning properly. Sleep weakens the immune system, and having a weak immune system makes the body susceptible to disease.
Limiting caffeine and alcohol intake can not only save a person’s liver, but also aid in relieving anxiety and paranoia. For a recovering addict, limiting caffeine and removing alcohol will benefit feel-good endorphins which will improve a person’s sex life, and overall health. It’s great to learn boundaries. How much is too much? This is something an addict can discuss with their therapist.
Limit the stressors. It’s impossible to completely remove all stress from life, unfortunately, but there are plenty of ways to help limit the anxiety, allowing a person to live a higher quality of life. Learning to flow with the motion and become flexible with expectations in life can help alleviate stress. When an individual struggling with addiction speaks with a therapist about the things that bother them, it creates an open environment full of peace and zero judgement.
