I've got tons of anxiety, especially when I sit down to work, which sure doesn't help with the effort to get things done and improve my financial situation. Since I don't have health insurance, I'm doing everything in my power to fight the anxiety without medication. Here's what I currently do:
* Mediate daily (I'm currently at 12 minutes, but I hope to get up 20 minutes.)
* Yoga 3x a week
* Running 3x a week
* reduced my caffeine intake (no more coffee or soda, hoping to cut down on black tea too.)
* vitamin D daily (Not sure if this has any effect on anxiety.)
Here's what I plan to do:
* Reduce my sugar intake. (I crave it so hard, feel good for ten minutes after eating it, then it seems to turn on me and exacerbate the problem.)
Can you suggest anything else?
