Inside and out
Anxiety over terrorism is still anxiety- not comfortable. The news is depressive and anxiety-producing; frequently justified, but still unsettling.
How to help yourself:
- Take a time-out.Practice yoga, listen to music, meditate, get a massage, or learn relaxation techniques. Stepping back from the problem helps clear your head.
- Eat well-balanced meals. Do not skip any meals. Do keep healthful, energy-boosting snacks on hand.
- Limit alcohol and caffeine, which can aggravate anxiety and trigger panic attacks.
- Get enough sleep.When stressed, your body needs additional sleep and rest.
- Exercise dailyto help you feel good and maintain your health. Check out the fitness tips below.
- Take deep breaths. Inhale and exhale slowly.
- Count to 10 slowly. Repeat, and count to 20 if necessary.
- Do your best. Instead of aiming for perfection, which isn’t possible, be proud of however close you get.
- Accept that you cannot control everything. Put your stress in perspective: Is it really as bad as you think?
- Welcome humor. A good laugh goes a long way.
- Maintain a positive attitude. Make an effort to replace negative thoughts with positive ones.
- Get involved.Volunteer or find another way to be active in your community, which creates a support network and gives you a break from everyday stress.

- Talk to someone.Tell friends and family you’re feeling overwhelmed, and let them know how they can help you. Talk to a physician or therapist for professional help.
- Get help online;guided by professional coaches, counselors & therapists to help you turn healthy anxiety management into a habit.
