Well, of course, I love to give and receive massages to help with anxiety relief. I’m a massage therapist! But, I thought I’d share some of the things I do at home that really help me:
1: Hug a pillow at night. My hubby and my dog don’t like to be held all night. So I make due with a pillow. It never squirms away or complains that it’s too hot!
2: Do a 25 minute morning yoga routine on NetFit. It’s free and you can do it at home!
3. Wear compression athletic shirts. The first time I put on a a compression shirt, I felt immediate relief from my anxiety. It was like wearing a hug! Rather than wear it to exercise, I wear it to sleep in when my anxiety is bad. I’m also a fan of the weighted athletic vest for taking a walk in, or doing chores around the house. Why not burn calories and give yourself a hug at the same time? Would love to hear your comments on habits that help you combat anxiety.
