Are you worried about your mental health? Is it causing you severe anxiety? For many people who have mental health conditions or mental health illnesses, it can seem like a minefield learning about what can help and what won’t help, and what’s more, it can also feel like something to be ashamed of to even ask for help.
Everyone Has Mental Health Worries
The first thing you should know is that nearly everyone will suffer from some kind of mental health issue at some point in their life. You’re not alone.
From ‘simple’ work stress to full-on anxiety and panic attacks, mental health issues can creep up on you at any time of your life, and it’s important that we talk openly about these things.
If you have a particular mental health condition, like autism or ADHD, then you are more likely to suffer from anxiety-related issues than the average person, but there are many non-pill related options that can help.
Here are five ways you can help your mental health-related anxiety without taking more medication.
Change Your Diet
Diet counts for such a huge part of our lives, and it’s true that a healthy diet can improve mental health conditions too. While not every condition or disorder can be solely treated by diet, you’dbe surprised at just how much diet can affect conditions that seem unrelated.
‘Lion Diet’ advocate, Mikhaila Peterson, who suffered from terrible autoimmune conditions and idiopathic arthritis claims that her Lion Diet (a variant of the Carnivore Diet) solved these issues and saved her life.
Diet isn’t always about ‘healthy’ eating but eating the right things for your body.
Consider Helpful Supplements
Along with diet, getting into a good supplement routine can make a huge difference to your life too. Supplements like Omega Fish Oils have been found to be beneficial to some patients diagnosed with ADHD, and CBD oil is regularly celebrated as a potential wonder supplement by many.
When shopping for CBD oil it’s important to get a quality supply. Platinum CBD UK’s CEO speaks about how quality CBD oil made a big difference to his life.
Learn Breathing Exercises
When was the last time you stopped to take a breath? Silly question, right? Wrong!
Learning good breathing exercises for anxiety can make a huge difference when you feel an anxiety attack coming on, and it’s vital that those around you also know good breathing exercises so that they can help you through any attack you may have.
A simple but life-changing answer here, therapy can be such a life-changer to many people. Just speaking about your problems with a trained professional will make all of the difference in your life.
Learn About Your Condition
Some people think that labels are not good, while others find that finally having a label for their condition is life changing. Learning about the condition you have will empower you to know what is real and what is the condition when you’re having problems. Labels can be empowering when used right.
