Hi. I suffer from OCD & anxiety. I go for therapy & take meds which help tremendously. Bedsides this, I mediatate, walk & drink chamomile tea

Learn Peaceful Place techniques and meditate, changing any negativity by using the process of acceptance, co-operation, unconditional love and forgiveness to develop the sense of inner peace.

All the best,

Great point, loose30cannon! I, too, have been dealing with a lot of anxiety lately. I had my blood tested and found out I have an omega 3 deficiency. This, along with my caffeine and nicotine habits certainly did not help. Now, I have quit nicotine, cut down considerably on caffeine and focus on positive thoughts and surround myself with positive people. All great posts on here of tips that I use that work.

So, take a look at diet, lifestyle, thought process, etc. And some simple changes can do wonders. I also started to meditate. The anxiety can make it challenging at first. However, focus and stick with it. I started using a timer of short intervals and gradually increased it so that I can meditate for longer periods of time. Thanks to all who have posted these tips!
