I want to know if there are any other “cures” for anxiety attacks besides exercising, and using drugs. I know therapy is supposed to help too, but anything else besides those things?
Anxiety is self-created.
Nobody imposes anxiety. It is neither inherited.
It is you, who have loaded heavy anxiety on your small head. Unknowingly you must have added the weight slowly. Now the weight is more and unbearable. You should now know how to unload that weight of anxiety. Unloading is also to be done slowly and steadily. It cannot be done overnight.
Analyze how you have loaded this anxiety on your body. This anxiety comes due to unnecessary, unwanted and undeserving desires which we start developing. When the desire is not getting fulfilled, one gets frustration. Frustration leads to worry. Worry leads to anger. Anger leads to indecision or wrong decisions. One becomes restless. Mind becomes stressed. One does not get proper sleep. Then we try several methods to come out of it. We commit more mistakes by thinking that drugs and alcoholic drinks may reduce the tension. Sleeplessness leads to mental functioning getting affected. Mental upset, mental disorder. Our efficiency goes down. Our effectiveness goes down. Our memory weakens. More and more anxiety comes. We become a laughing stock before others. We take loans and we are not able to pay back in proper time. Family is worried and affected.
Can you now please see what is the origin of this anxiety. Cut the source now itself. Then only you can come out of this trouble.
