Anxiety related symptoms are the first signs of detrimental effects on health and it can lead to many conditions, mental and physical. Chest pains due to coronary artery disease, hot flashes, panicky feelings, choking, head zaps, no energy, lethargic feeling, tiredness, giddiness, rumbling sounds, vomiting, numbness, skipped heartbeats, the floor can feel like it's moving up or down, the list can go on.

Over four (4) million people in North America suffer from anxiety and panic attacks during the course of a year. The known food triggers for anxiety and panic attacks are things like high-calorie foods (fast food and poorly made foods), caffeine containing drinks (coffee, energy drinks, etc.)

Letting go of anxiety by yourself is not an easy task, however its possible.

1) Get comfortable. Make yourself as comfortable as possible, put your feet up, sit in a chair that you know for sure will make you change positions often.

2) Start by closing your eyes. Imagine yourself in a most peaceful place possible, where no one and nothing can even bother you.

3) Count down. Start counting your breaths... Inhale and exhale really slow, however don't strain yourself, let it be natural, just like after a hard day's work.

4) Develop a trigger. Now that you've reached the destination, you are completely safe and nothing can bother or disturb you, make some reassuring words, like: "I am perfectly in control in every area of my life". Then, make a trigger within yourself - either pinch lightly your finger (remember which one) or hold your palm with another.

5) Chill and come back. Imagine yourself getting up and taking that special place with you, but coming back in your surroundings.

Whenever you feel anxious or experience panic attack, just repeat the trigger, pinch the finger (try to remember which one you made the trigger on) or do whatever you assigned the trigger to.
