5 Small Lifestyle Changes That Can Help Combat Anxiety

4. Get Your Blood Flowing

Exercising and working out is obviously critical to our physical health, but it also plays a key role in our mental health. You don’t have to join a gym, or add yet another task to your busy day in order to care for your mind though. When you get home at the end of the day, use that time you would normally watch TV to get the blood flowing. Take a walk, go for a jog, hop on the bike, and turn your phone on “Do not disturb.”

It’s amazing how much our physical health is directly related to our mental health. Do this for a week and notice the difference for yourself.

5. Download a Mental Health App

You don’t have to change your life to combat anxiety. Simply start small, and make totally do-able changes to the way you already live.
