Anxiety is hugely on the rise and latest statistics show 1 in 4 suffer with mental health issues. If you are one of the millions of people that suffer with anxiety, then you know it can wreck havoc on your daily life –personally and professionally!
My 5 Steps To Help You Overcome Anxiety!
Trust me this is a BIG deal! Meditation silences the mind to experience inner peace. This detaches us from stress and worry so we become more understanding of our inner self. Meditate 10mins for 10days and see just how beneficial this really is for you!
The headspace app is a great guide for beginners!

Hugely underrated!! Studies have shown a direct link between nutrition and mental health. Caffeine, processed sugars, gluten and alcohol can contribute to anxiety! What you put into your body is what you get out of it! So make sure your diet is full of health!

Superfoods Maca helps balance hormone levels, reduce stress and anxiety and Cacao helps release serotonin, elevating your moods!

This is a great way to improve your health, reduce stress and enhance your mood! Exercise brings you into the moment so you give yourself a break from your anxious thoughts and can focus on doing something positive for yourself.

When you focus on breathing you become present and lose awareness of anxious thoughts. Slowing and deepening your breath activates your nervous system’s relaxation response, slowing your heart rate, increasing oxygen and providing calmness.

A Very Simple Breathing Exercise –Inhale through the nose for a count of 4, pause for a count of 4, exhale through the nose for a count of 4. – Repeat until your body and mind are calm.

Positive Incantations
An Incantation is an empowering phrase and when spoken aloud repeatedly with absolute certainty engages your nervous system to induce a new physiology and cultivates new beliefs. ‘I can do this’ ‘I am enough’ ‘I am strong.’

Remember – your thoughts, words and beliefs become your reality!

Every experience (even a challenging one!) is either a lesson, a blessing or a gift –the sooner you can accept that and find a positive within every moment, the sooner your fears lesson their hold on you and you can start to really live!
