First of all, it is good to clarify that if the disorder becomes disabling or worsens over time, it is good to contact an experienced specialist, who – during a few sessions – will check the situation and identify both the origin of the anxiety and the best treatment. If, on the other hand, it is a sporadic problem, which occurs only and exclusively in some particular situations, it is possible to resort to some natural do-it-yourself methods without the danger of contraindications.
A simple and very effective remedy to combat anxiety is to focus on breathing and do it correctly. When the heart rate increases or the temperature rises, the best weapon to keep panic under control and prevent it from degenerating is to take long and deep breaths; the secret is to inhale as much air as possible, feel it enter your chest until it inflates, then exhale and relax the muscles.

This simple exercise, only apparently trivial, allows you to have an immediate and surprising result, especially when you feel a situation of imminent danger. Another remedy to combat anguish in a completely natural (and healthy) way is to practice physical activity, preferably in the open air regularly. Running or walking fast for at least 30 minutes a day allows you to keep fit physically and mentally. Physical exercise, in fact, helps to release anxiety and to keep it under control.
Another straightforward solution is to perfume the rooms where you spend most of the time (or at least the evening hours) with a lavender or lemon aroma, which helps you relax naturally.
