We are in the age of anxiety. Between work, bills, family, and trying to stay healthy, the everyday pressures of life have millions of Americans reaching for a prescription bottle. Many people are now using CBD (alongside their meds or as an alternative) for a drug-free way to help alleviate anxiety-induced struggles.
Some anxiety is a normal - albeit unwanted - part of life. It makes you aware of danger, encourages organization and preparedness, and helps you calculate risks. However, the effects of anxiety can be debilitating for so many. Statistics from the Anxiety & Depression Association of America showed:
- Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S., affecting 40 million adults in the United States age 18 and older, or 18.1% of the population every year.
- Anxiety disorders are highly treatable, yet only 36.9% of those suffering receive treatment.
- People with an anxiety disorder are three to five times more likely to go to the doctor and six times more likely to be hospitalized for psychiatric disorders than those who do not suffer from anxiety disorders.
- Anxiety disorders develop from a complex set of risk factors, including genetics, brain chemistry, personality, and life events.
Regardless of when your symptoms began, it’s possible that your mind is in overdrive, and you’re constantly waiting for the next disaster to happen. The good news is that popping pills isn’t the only way to get your fears and nerves under control.
Natural Remedies for Anxiety
Dealing with anxiety can be stressful, but it is treatable. More and more Americans are now considering natural remedies as an alternative to prescription drugs. This may be because some medications such as beta-blockers or benzodiazepines can have unwanted side effects. It is important to talk to a doctor before reducing or stopping prescription medication or starting an additional supplement.
As well as including CBD in your daily routine, try these natural coping strategies to help tame the anxiety beast within:
- Take time-out. Practice yoga, listen to music, meditate, get a massage, or learn relaxation techniques to help clear your mind.
- Eat well-balanced meals. Eat the rainbow and keep healthful, energy-boosting snacks on hand.
- Limit alcohol and caffeine, which can aggravate anxiety and trigger panic attacks.
- Get enough sleep. When stressed, your body needs additional sleep and rest.
- Exercise daily to help you feel good and maintain your health.
- Take deep breaths. Inhale and exhale slowly.
- Do your best. Instead of aiming for perfection, which isn't possible, be proud of however close you get.
