Get moving to reduce your anxiety
We know that regular exercise is a great cure for both anxiety and depression but often, especially when you are feeling anxious and as though you are already struggling, motivating yourself to get moving can feel like a mountain to climb. But it really can be so transformative to how you feel. Exercise, and not just the hard core sweat inducing high intensity stuff, but anything that gets you moving and your heart rate up, will release endorphins (the feel good hormone in the brain), which will not only make you feel happier and calmer. We just weren't designed to sit at desks all day, looking at computer and phone screens; our brains and bodies just haven't evolved that fast. So make time to get up and move, in whatever capacity that may be; running, dancing, walking, yoga. Whatever works for you, the important thing is that you prioritise it into your day as consistently as possible.
