Three tips to control your anxiety so it doesn’t speed up dementia
Use these three tips to help you manage your anxiety:
Keep busy and distract yourself. When you start feeling that lump in your stomach, stop thinking about whatever it is you’re worrying about and go do something purposeful or enjoyable. Read a book, watch a movie, do some gardening or bake a cake. Pondering on something doesn’t make it any better.
Exercise. Being active releases serotonin which makes you feel better and could help you problem-solve more effectively.
Breathe. Do this breathing exercise several times per day when you’re starting to feel anxious. Close your, breathe in deeply so your stomach expands and hold your breath for a count of five. Then release your breath slowly. Repeat five times.
Getting your anxiety under control could add years of independence to your life. The best news is – it’s never too late to start!
