Quick Anxiety Relief Tips

  1. Take deep breaths: Slow, deep breathing can help you calm down and reduce anxiety. Inhale deeply through your nose and then exhale slowly through your mouth for at least 8 seconds.  The Hā Tool can help slow the breath down in moments of stress, which activates your parasympathetic nervous system and calms you.

  2. Practice mindfulness: Paying attention to the present moment can help you let go of anxious thoughts. Try to focus on your breathing and the sensations in your body. The feeling of anxiety is biochemical and usually lasts in 60-90 second waves.  Remember that the discomfort will dissipate and that you are safe.

  3. Do some type of movement/Exercise: Exercise can help reduce anxiety by releasing endorphins, the body's feel-good chemicals. Even a short walk or some stretching can be helpful.

  4. Use positive self-talk: Replace negative thoughts with positive ones. Tell yourself that you can handle the situation, and that everything will be okay.

  5. Listen to calming music: Music can have a relaxing effect on the body and mind. Listen to your favorite calming music or nature sounds.

  6. Take a break: Take a few minutes to step away from the situation that's causing you anxiety. Go for a walk, read a book, or do something else that helps you relax.

  7. Talk to someone: Sharing your worries with someone you trust can help you feel better. Reach out to a friend, family member, or a therapist if you need support.
