Working out really helps me :) Helps me to clear my head and feel relaxed. Meditation is also great, but hard to practice. Takes dedication, but very worth it. Deep breathing and yoga helps too!

I too have some anxiety issues from time to time and my answer tends to be a shower bath :) A shower bath is where you plug the drain in your bath. Instead of simply filling the water up and then getting into the filleb tub, sit in there while it fills. I find this very relaxing – others might just think I am crazy, which is ok :) My sister-in-law does it too, which gave us a giggle. I also drip a drop or two of Peppermint oil in the area where the shower stream hits the tub for a good scent in the shower. Once the water gets to the top, treat it like a bath and relax. Good luck!

You can try meditation, I know it always helps calm me down. Lavender oil has a calming effect so you can mix some with some unscented lotion or put it on an oil burner thing while you meditate, Chamomile tea also is very calming.

Valerian is good for night time if the anxiety is causing problems getting to sleep. I’ve taken it in tablet form on long flights. Most health food shops sell them.

I agree with stylesplash! I take valerian if I’m having anxiety attacks or heart palpitations during the day. There are also breathing exercises you can do and a EFT tapping which is something I learned from my therapist. I highly recommend looking it up! It sounds kind of silly at first, but the rhythmic tapping can really help distract your body from the panic it’s feeling.

Neurvo-heel
it’s a homeopathetic medication so it’s all natural and you can take it as often as every 1/2 hour if you need, so that just shows there’s nothing bad in it!
