4. Upgrade diet with L-lysine

Apart from being an amino acid, L-lysine is one of the building blocks of brain's chemical messengers, neurotransmitters. Taking L-lysine supplements reduce stress hormones. Fish, meat and beans are some good sources to depend on.

5. Get natural sunlight for 15 minutes everyday

Naturally increase vitamin-D levels and let your mind breathe free. Remember, the greener the better; hence, go for a walk in park or peaceful tree-lined streets to take a stroll.

6. Exercise for 21 minutes

Exercise floods the body with feel-good endorphins. Researchers have concluded that increasing body heat (through exercise) alters neural circuits controlling cognitive function and mood along with those that affect the neurotransmitter serotonin. This response boosts the mood, increases tranquility and eases stress disorders.

Soothing hot bath is calming and regulates mood by raising body heat. Adding some Epsom salts make things even magical. Magnesium sulfate present in the salts calms stress and lowers blood pressure. Lavender or vanilla oils in bathwater are also some of the great alternatives.

8. Avoid/ reduce caffeine

Caffeine gears up energy but makes you anxious. Reduce by a cup a day to see any changes. Switch to any other drink that has less caffeine and more benefits like green tea. Keep an eye on caffeine sources such as tea, soda, chocolate and some over-the-counter medications. If you feel anxious most of the times, your coffee intake is way too much.

9. Track your diet and look for:

* Alcohol, caffeine and added sugars that are all famous for unpleasant reasons such as increased stress.

* Consumption of difficult to digest foods such as fried foods, processed meals or foods loaded with saturated fats.

* Deficiencies in vitamin B12, magnesium and zinc, as they are responsible for stress disorders. If vegetarian or vegan, monitor your B12 intake because you get this vitamin in animal products only.

* Don’t keep yourself excessively hungry because it will drop blood sugar and result in anxiety.

I also have found that NIACIN and INOSITOL can be extremely beneficial for anxiety and Panic attacks.

Inositol is classified as a B-vitamin, it is a nutrient the occurs naturally in whole grains, beans, nuts, and fruits.

It is also produced in the human body and can be synthetically made. Humans make inositol and it is also available as a dietary supplement (Inositol can be synthesized in the lab from glucose). There are 2 main forms of Inositol : (There are nine types of inositol)

The foods that contain inositol include: cantaloupe, citrus fruits, beans, bananas, kiwi, peaches, pears, cabbage, tomatoes, pumpkin, bell peppers, potatoes, carrots, whole grains, lecithin (from sunflower seeds, soy, eggs), and fish.
