“Much of our anxiety and stress comes when we’re focused on fear and disconnected from the voice of our inner guide.” —Gabrielle Bernstein
Anxiety takes your power away.
When anxiety comes up, it puts you into a thought loop that causes you to hear negative things about yourself consistently. This can stop you in your tracks and make you feel out of control of your life.
In this live episode of The Elevated Life®, you’ll learn the 5 Practical Ways to Beat Anxiety. We all know stress and anxiety are common, but what you might not know is that it is a CHOICE you’re subscribing to. In this video, you’ll learn practical ways to stop anxiety before it begins.

1. Examine Your Diet (Especially Your Magnesium & Potassium Levels)
The first thing you have to check in on when you’re feeling anxious is your diet and physical health. Your magnesium and potassium levels can have a huge impact on your mental health and clarity. A simple blood draw can provide a little more insight on these levels.
To increase these levels in your body, you can try taking a supplement or eating foods like avocados and nuts.
Chris and I are big fans of Natural Vitality Calm, a magnesium-rich supplement powder.
2. Commit to exercising daily.
Moving your body creates endorphins. When you release those endorphins, your body naturally starts to calm down and relax.
We recently experienced a family tragedy, and our biggest saving grace while dealing with the emotional pain was getting onto our mats each morning and moving our bodies with yoga.
3. Decrease your caffeine intake.
If you’re trying to ditch anxiety in your life, but still ingesting things like coffee and chocolate, the jittery effects of caffeine will only worsen it.
Caffeine builds up too much energy in your body that you will not be able to express in a healthy way. This creates a feeling that we label as overwhelm, stress, and anxiety.
Try cutting back your caffeine intake and monitoring how it affects your anxiety levels.
4. Develop a daily meditation practice.
So many people try meditation and quit after one time because they feel like it’s not right for them and they’re not good at it.
Developing a daily meditation practice will give you so much more insight into where your unconscious mind wanders, so that you can bring more intention and consciousness into your life.

5. Check in on your self-esteem.
If you’ve tried using these first 4 techniques consistently, but still feel overwhelmed by anxiety, there might be some deep-seated issues that you need to address.
You need to check in on your self-esteem and self-worth, because if you don’t believe in yourself, the future can seem hopeless.

Ever find yourself worrying?
It seems like there’s always something new to be anxious about.

We all know what happens when we buy into the feelings of habitual worry. We become restless, easily agitated, and overwhelmed by irrational fears.
