3. Get outside
There are so many things to do indoors now that it’s easy to forget about everything nature has to offer us outside. When the weather allows, make it a point to get outside. You can schedule this time into your day, whether it be a walk around the block before work, playing with your kids at the park, or joining an intramural sports league. Adequate levels of vitamin D improve mood and help balance hormone levels. Trees, running water and plants are beneficial to cognition. The majority of human evolution occurred in natural environments, so it’s no surprise that simply spending time outside can help you feel more relaxed and comfortable when dealing with anxiety.
