Anxiety and Stress Management

  • Go outside. Take a walk. BREATHE.
  • Reduce screen time. Check out some of these resources for technology addiction to help. 
  • That said if you're on your screen
    • Follow Dr. Amber Thorton on Twitter
    • Practice only keeping one browser tab open at a time
    • Set your device to greyscale mode. Colorful icons give our brains shiny rewards every time we unlock. Remove those positive reinforcements. 
  • Write what is in your head onto paper, don't fuss over the format, just write it down
  • Make art or sketch
  • Spend time with animals; hug all the puppies, hold all the cats!
  • Make time for sex.
  • “Stack” - A stacking app/game that is very calming and focusing
  • Write out a gratitude list (list 3 things that you’re thankful for before bed)
  • Listen to our Sensible Care playlist
  • Brain.FM  Functional music to improve focus
  • How to relieve stress in 60 seconds - Video

Nutrition for Stress and Anxiety

  • Drink lots of water, at least a gallon a day. 
  • Eat a breakfast with protein to help keep blood sugar steady
  • Eat complex carbohydrates (e.g whole grains) to increase the serotonin in your brain, which has a calming effect. 
  • Avoid simple carbohydrates (e.g sugary foods and drinks)
  • Limit or avoid alcohol. Alcohol interferes with sleep and can make you edgy
  • Limit or avoid caffeine. This is an obvious one. Caffeine interferes with sleep and contributes to feeling jittery and nervous.
  • Pay attention to food sensitivities. In some people, certain foods or additives can cause physical reactions like shifts in mood, ADHD, anxiety, autism, chronic fatigue, depression, hyperactivity, PMS, tension and weight fluctuations.
  • Try to eat healthy, balanced meals and don't overeat. Lots of fruits and veggies are important to physical and mental health. 
  • Double-check your supplements. Eating fish high in omega-3 fatty acids, such as salmon, on a regular basis might be helpful.
