    No this is not true

    I have always taken good care of myself and eat well and exercise. Yet a week from periods I start getting anxious. Now as I hit perimenopause or not sure if it's brahmi (started a month ago) affecting thyroid that I am a crazy anxious nut. When you have panic attacks or anxiety you cannot get your mind to focus. When your hormones are going crazy how can this be a remedy. First thing is to get hormones under control. As of today I don't know how.

        Nice and informative post .

        Here are some tips

        1.Get enough sleep
        2.Smile. When work has got us down, it’s a good idea to take a quick break to get some giggles on.
        3.Eat right. Anxiety can throw our bodies totally out of whack: Our appetite might change, or we might crave certain food
        4.Learn to breathe. A useful tool to prevent panic attacks, the breath is also a great marker of where your anxiety level is at throughout the day.
        5.Meditate. By now most of us have heard that meditation is relaxing, but what scientists are also discovering is that meditation actually increases the amount of grey matter in the brain, essentially rewiring the body to stress less.
        6.Play around. Kids and animals seem to have an innate ability to play, without stressing about their overflowing inboxes.
        7.Visualize anything positive. When confronted with anxious thoughts, take a moment to visualize yourself handling the situation with calm, ease, and clarity.

          You guys covered almost everything.
          I would like to add this:
          -go to a holiday or visit a retreat center. It revitalizes the mind and body to deal with the stresses of everyday life back at home. Stretching out those knots and syncing your breath helps you let go of all that pain and tension you’ve been hanging on to with all those years working on wall street. The Summer House Torquay retreat center is regularly hosting mediation classes for everybody that is from Australia or can afford going there.

                In today’s world, stress is the number one complaint for doctors’ visits. Chronic, ongoing stress brings on anxiety and depression symptoms.

                During times of stress, your body uses up B vitamins and minerals you have daily, causing depletion. If they are not replaced with correct supplements or foods then this creates depression and anxiety issues.

                Many of us, when asked say, “We are OK”, but stress comes in many forms, emotional, relationships, job related or family issues, financial, sickness or disease. Find a way to destress, get some help or support, exercise is good and taking a supplement with B vitamins, minerals and adaptogenic herbs that can assist in calming the anxiety and depressed state.

                      A full Body Massage at Ayurvedic Wellness Centre here in the heart of Bondi Junction on Bondi Road would reduce muscular tension, tightness restoring the connective and soft tissue, especially beneficial for those with strains and injuries. If you are suffering any of the above, it would be worth exploring the benefits of an Abhyanga full body massage and cleanse.
