Globally, 1 in 13 Suffers From Anxiety

In the world’s most comprehensive study on anxiety and depression, researchers have found that mental health issues not only are global problems, but that 1 person in 13 worldwide suffers from anxiety, Futurity reports. Not surprisingly, the study also found that depression appears to be higher in parts of the world where there are conflicts occurring.

That so many people are at once both anxious and depressed is depressing in itself, which leads to the question: What do you do when you’re feeling anxious? Are you aware of how heavily your mental feelings can impact your physical body? Recognizing this, it can be easy to channel your anxieties into excitement by simply telling yourself you are excited, rather than reinforcing the anxious feeling. The difference is excitement is generally a positive emotion while anxiety is negative.

It’s also important to understand that anxiety is a normal response to stress, but in some people the anxiety becomes overwhelming and difficult to cope with, to the point that it affects their day-to-day living. If you struggle with anxiety, you may want to look into energy psychology techniques such as the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), which involves stimulating different energy meridian points in your body by tapping them with your fingertips while simultaneously using custom-made verbal affirmations.

Exercise also is a huge mood booster. In addition to the creation of new neurons, including those that release the calming neurotransmitter GABA, exercise boosts levels of potent brain chemicals like serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine, which may help buffer some of the effects of stress.
