Anxiety Eating Tips – Habits For Healthy Mind and Body


When most people think about dealing with anxiety, few place diet and nutrition high on the priority list. Perhaps it's because we want a solution right here and right now, as quickly as possible. However, since there are no quick fixes for anxiety, a longer-term approach to recovery seems to be a more realistic proposition. Therefore, beginning a good diet regimen today can speed long-term recovery from chronic anxiety and even panic attacks.You know it's start with the obvious. Drink plenty of water, eat plenty of fruits and veggies, and cut down on the fat and meat. Of course this basic 'rule of thumb' can apply to healing a number of physical and mental disorders, and anxiety is no exception. So starting to eat better today certainly increases your chances of overcoming anxiety.

Keeping Your Bodily Rhythm In Balance.

A person with anxiety is likely to be 'out of balance' body-wise. This could be because many anonymous individuals often deal with the condition by sometimes drinking too much alcohol or consuming too many comfort foods. Over time, this cumulative habitual ignorance can ravage the body – leaving it more vulnerable to feeling anxious, and being out of balance.

Since getting into bodily rhythm is important for someone with anxiety, eating three balanced meals a day is vital, especially breakfast. Food in the morning should not be avoided under any circumstance- it calms an empty stomach and gives your body strength to ward-off anxiety the rest of the day. In addition you should eat your breakfast, lunch and dinner around the same time each day. Not only will your body thank you by improving your digestion, you may find other rhythmic aspects of your life improving too, such as quality of sleep. This rhythmic cycle of bodily improvement can only naturally filter down to your frame of mind and eventually diminish episodes and your severity of anxious thinking.

While quality of food is obviously important, quantity can also upset your nervous system. Always avoid over-eating at one sitting. Consuming too much food can make you feel instantly better, but can result in stomach or other digestive discomfort later, leaving you more prone to anxiety. If you find yourself before to binge-eating, try to eat more smaller meals rather than fewer big meals through the course of the day.

Your Nervous System, Caffeine and Alcohol.

For most individuals with anxiety, caffeine should be avoided completely. No good can from feeling 'jittery' if you are anxious already- caffeine will only further tax your nervous system. Caffeine can help set off a panic attack or a severe lengthy episode episode. It can also help prevent you from taking a well-needed nap or getting good sleep at night. Although not as bad, sugar should also be avoided as much as possible.

Alcohol should be kept to a minimum, or completely avoided. It's natural for someone with anxiety to want to relax and alcohol gives you a temporary instant 'warm and fuzzy' feeling. However excessive use (especially day after day) will deplete your body of necessary nutrients required for a healthy nervous system. Like caffeine, alcohol may leave you feeling jittery later in the day (or the next day). This can make you more prone to anxiety, and may make you feel the need to drink more, only adding to a vicious cycle.

Diet and nutrition alone will not cure anxiety, but can alleviate the severity and frequency of episodes. When combined with lifestyle adjustments, exercise, a supplement regimen and mental therapy, anxiety can begin to become a thing of the past.
