4 tips to reduce divorce stress

Getting a divorce is a very stressful time in a person’s life.  It is a bit like losing a person to death but still having them around, which can be in itself quite distressing, and of course there is the hurt and/or betrayal which one side feels.

When I went through this many years ago I must admit I didn’t do well.  I was very angry and this anger actually was not good for me or my family and I came to realize I was really only hurting myself by venting those feelings.   This stress and anger must have sent my anxiety levels through the roof.

A natural anxiety remedy can work for you

In healing anxiety you must remember that a magic cure or pill does not exist. This is not to say that healing rates are low. Both patients and medical professionals have taken healing anxiety to high, encouraging success rates often using a natural anxiety remedy.

It is important to remember that all your professional help should have one goal: to establish the belief that you have the power to control your body as well as your life.

Methods that you can do yourself include stress management techniques such as meditation, getting sufficient exercise or other physical activity and proper eating properly. I also find that taking a good vitamin B complex and evening primrose oil has helped me as well.

One of the most popular alternative natural remedies uses St. John’s Wort. It has the same effect to prescription drugs but without side effects, developed tolerance, and withdrawal symptoms. Personally I haven’t found much success with St John’s Wort but I know others who have.

The most successful use of a natural anxiety remedy in my opinion involves the use of alternative and herbal treatments in conjunction with scientific cognitive behavioral therapy (COG). This COG therapy emphasizes the self help aspect for the treatment of anxiety. It focuses on practical, personal skills for dealing with stress and keeping your reactions in check.

Please consult your doctor before taking any natural supplements like St John’s Wort for example, to avoid contraindications with other medications you might be taking.

Review of The Unexplainable Store for Relaxation Music

I have spoken about this online store called The Unexplainable Store before but in the last week I noticed that my anxiety levels were rising again because of a few things happening in my life at present, and so I wanted to talk to you again about how the music they sell is such a great help to me in managing my anxiety.   If something works then you should spread the news!

You know in yourself when your anxiety has reared its ugly head and sometimes it’s a surprise, and feels like it has come from nowhere, and at other times you know exactly what has triggered it.  The good news for me is that when I realize my stress levels are building, I then can go and control it and reduce it to a manageable level  with binaural beat or osochronic music, and before it develops into a panic attack.

The Unexplainable Store sells binaural beat music (also called brain entrainment) which is played in both ears at once through stereo earphones.  You download the music straight to your computer and then you can put it on your iPod, MP3 player, iPad or Kindle.   It’s amazing how fast it works to get your stress levels down even from the first recording.  When you listen to the music you can feel a kind of buzz ( I’m sorry that’s not very descriptive but how it feels to me) so you know its working for you.  Maybe I’m more sensitive or something, and I would love you to tell me how it affects you.

They also have isochronic music to choose from where you don’t need the headphones but I suggest you still use them unless you are alone with no other distracting sounds around you.  The following is an explanation from their site – Isochronic tones are the most powerful type of brainwave entrainment, utilizing equal intensity tones, increasing the pulse speed, and synchronizing your brain with the rhythm. Isochronics use a distinct and clean wave form which is designed to harmonize with the brain much more efficiently.

They have a wide range of titles but my favorites are Slow Down and Relax and Anxiety Aid.  Besides titles on anxiety and stress they also have recordings on motivation, prosperity and weight loss.  I have also used the self hypnosis recordings as well and find them very good.

If you suffer from anxiety you have to give it a go.  It works for me and has saved me from a panic attack on a few occasions and I also take them and my iPod when I travel and am a little more keyed up.

Update:  The Unexplainable Store has changed hands (2012) but still delivers great binaural beats for $14 and isochronic tones at $24 for the Anxiety Aid package and binaural beats (10) and isochronic tones ($16) for Slow Down and Relax package.

Panic attacks and how they start

Listen to the video below as it explains how I felt when having a panic attack but I didn’t know what to do then.   Eating in restaurants always made me anxious and this is where my panic attacks started. When I looked at this video I identified immediately with how I felt when I first suffered from panic attacks.

What it didn’t talk about though was what I call ‘the wave’ which comes with panic attacks. I used to dread ‘the wave’  but now when I feel some tingling in my fingers or scalp I can stop ‘the wave’ from coming on and taking me into a full blown panic attack.  I realize then that my anxiety is high and I work at getting it down.  Please watch the video if you do experience panic.

It’s not easy to overcome panic attacks but it can be done and I have done it myself. Don’t be fooled though into thinking its easy or that you can read a book or watch some videos and it will all go away. That doesn’t happen. It takes time and you must apply what you learn.    I really liked this video and I hope you did too.

I recommend PANIC AWAY for help with overcoming panic.  Just read their testimonials to see the relief they have given to so many people.
