- Pay attention to your breathing
Surprisingly many of us don’t even realize that we are breathing to stay alive. Who would ever think that something so simple will decrease your stress levels?

Focus on where the air goes in your stomach and your lungs. Feel yourself breathing. Become aware of your breathe and only your breathe. Over time it will take little effort. You will begin to notice you are eating less, biting your nails less and eventually you will want to stay awake. Believe it or not focusing on your breathing is the first step in helping you enjoy your life.
- Living in the moment
This is a hard concept for women to grasp, especially mothers. Planning is important do not get me wrong. Whatever works for you whether it be in the morning every day, once a week or even once a month, you definitely need to plan out your schedule so you know what is going on with you and your family life. Living in the moment is knowing what is coming ahead but not thinking about anything other than what is happening right in front of you. Enjoy the company that you are surrounded by, focus on what you are doing for your work, live in the moment and think of nothing else.
Stress takes over lives and ruins the moments we share with our loved ones. We miss things because we are too busy thinking about what could and should happen. Why we didn’t do that. When that terrible thing happened the other day and how we are still so embarrassed.
Time is your friend the more time we spend on anything in life the better we get at it. These 2 tips won’t cure anxiety but they will help you to cope in your life. Practise makes perfect. You will conquer anxiety just one step at a time!
