Anxiety busters

Schedule a daily worry space to allow yourself to think about what’s bothering you

Feeling worried occasionally is normal, but when it starts to interfere with your everyday life, it’s time to take action. Try these tips to ease your over-anxiety:

Schedule a daily worry space to allow yourself to think about what’s bothering you. If you feel anxious at other times of the day, tell yourself to put it on hold for later and use distraction – crosswords, Sudoku, backwards counting – it’s harder to worry if your brain is busy.

Challenge your thinking. Write things down – seeing it in black and white can put things into perspective. Notice negative language (can’t, won’t, shouldn’t) that fuels the downward spiral, and make a conscious effort to use more positive words.

Address physical symptoms like rapid heart beat, fast breathing and tense muscles by taking five minutes out to focus on slow, calm breathing.

Body clock

Did you know that you’re more creative at the time of day when you actually feel groggiest? While morning people will intuitively schedule demanding tasks for early in the day and night owls save them for later, researchers at Albion College in the US found that when it comes to thinking outside the box, you perform better when you’re outside your time comfort zone.

Core stability

Your core muscles are important for every movement you make – they’re the deep muscles within your spine and pelvis that stabilities and strengthen your body. And if your core is strong you’ll look longer and cleaner as well! To help strengthen your core, lie on your back, knees bent, feet flat, spine in neutral and your legs hip distance apart. Pull in your lower abdomen as far as you can, as if you’re zipping up a tight pair of jeans. Hold for a count of 10 if you can, breathe normally and repeat 10 times. Do this simple exercise every day.

Detox

New research is emerging that suggests that occasional fasting – cutting calories down to a minimal 500 – 800 a day – could have positive health benefits. Professor Mark Matton of the US National Institute on Aging has studied the impact of calorie restriction. He suggests that intermittent fasting can lead to a drop in blood sugar levels, a fall in the hormones linked with cancer and diabetes, lower levels of harmful blood fats and less inflammation. It may also trigger protective processes in the brain, potentially guarding against Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. However, doctors don’t recommend cutting down calories in such an extreme way on a regular basis. If you have any long-term health problems, don’t detox without asking your doctor – and don’t see it as an alternative to healthy eating for the majority of the time.

Energy

If your get-up-and-go has vanished, try these simple steps to help you recharge:

·         Identify the energy vampires – the tasks, or the people, who suck the life out of you, and try to cut out the least essential and rewarding.

·         Resolve that every time someone tries to rope you in you’ll take five minutes before responding. If there’s a ‘should’ or ‘ought to’ attached to it, day no. the first time you refuse is always the hardest.

·         Know your limits – you can always cram a few more things into your day, but how will it leave you feeling? Remember that energy is your most precious resource, so make sure you use it wisely.
