3 Techniques For Overcoming Anxiety - Articles Surfing
Many people who suffer with excessive blushing also have a problem with anxiety. It is common for excessive blushers to associate their anxiety as something that is caused by their problem blushing. In many cases, however, it is likely that anxiety is the trigger for excessive blushing. When it comes to excessive blushing and social anxiety, as with the classic 'chicken or the egg' question, it's hard to know which comes first.
The truth of the matter is likely that in some cases blushing triggers anxiety, and in others, anxiety triggers blushing. Many people with excessive blushing assume that if they could stop blushing, their anxiety problems would go away. It's important to realize that the anxiety itself may be the cause of some excessive blushing problems. If anxiety is causing some or all of the blushing, it only makes sense to work on controlling anxiety as a means of controlling excessive blushing.
Tips for Reducing Anxiety
By practicing the techniques presented here, you can play a proactive role in reducing your anxiety, which can also help reduce the occurrence of excessive blushing.
Each person has the ability to exert control over his or her responses to stressful situations. By definition, stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus. When you feel stressed out, you are reacting to some sort of internal or external stimulus.
Feeling stressed out does not have to be an automatic response to a stress-inducing stimulus. People can train themselves to pause in between experiencing a trigger for a stress response, and actually keep the reaction from occurring. Taking this pause enables you to choose to react to the trigger in a more productive manner. By training yourself to avoid letting stress be your immediate response to stimuli, you are able to reduce anxiety and stress in your daily life.
2. Breathing Exercises
The best breathing exercise for overcoming anxiety simply involves paying attention to how you breathe when you are not feeling anxious or stressed out. Focus on your breath, so you know what normal breathing feels like. When you start to feel stressed out, remind yourself to concentrate on your breathing. This will help you return to normal breathing patterns, and help you remove your focus from the situation that is triggering your anxiety.
3. Exercise Regularly
Exercise can relax you physically and mentally. Spending even a few minutes each day engages in an enjoyable physical activity can play an important role in reducing your anxiety levels.
While these three techniques aren't an overnight cure to a lifetime of problem blushing, they can have a positive impact on your overall anxiety levels. The less anxiety you experience, the less of an issue problem blushing is likely to be for you. Instead of stressing out over how to stop blushing so much, focus on reducing some of the stress in your life. Getting your stress reactions to anxiety-inducing situations under control is a key to reducing the impact of excessive blushing on your life.
