A little bit of stress can motivate you, but too much might cause an anxiety disorder that can prevent you from living your life to the fullest.

Apply these changes in your daily life and you will see how the anxiety disappears

Anxiety disorders are often misunderstood – many people think that you can simply overcome the symptoms by willpower. While it's important to seek professional treatment, it's also important to adapt your lifestyle.

If you feel anxious on a daily basis, try making changes to your lifestyle to manage anxiety on your own.

1. Move more

Exercise regularly to release the body's endorphins, our natural feel-good chemicals. Set a goal of 30 minutes at least five days of the week.

2. Get decent shuteye

Be sure to get enough sleep, typically between seven and eight hours every night.

3. Keep a clear mind

During waking hours, take short breaks from whatever stresses you out – meditation and listening to music are great ways to clear your head.

4. Adapt your diet

Eat healthy and don't skip meals. Limit alcohol and caffeine, which can worsen anxiety and trigger panic attacks.

5. Seek help

If adjustments to your routine don't lessen your anxiety, talk to your doctor, especially if anxiety or depression runs in your family. You could have an anxiety disorder.

6. Monitor your feelings

Keep a symptom diary and be on alert for the warning signs of an anxiety disorder.

Possible anxiety disorder symptoms include:

Constant worry
Avoiding social situations
Panic attacks

7. Find the best treatment for you

If you're diagnosed with an anxiety disorder, stay positive. There are many treatments available, such as cognitive behavioural therapy to help you change your thought patterns. Also, there are other types of therapy, medication, and simple adjustments to your daily routine.

Most important is finding a therapist you're comfortable working with and who's experienced in treating anxiety disorders.
