The cause of anxiety disorders are not fully understood, but like other forms of mental and emotional problems, anxiety disorders are not the result of personal weakness or a character flaw. A combination of factors contribute to the development of these problems, including unresoled trauma and abuse, nutritional deficiencies, environmental toxins and genetic factors. People may have a genetic predisposition to anxiety in their family. However, there are usually environmental triggers that bring these latent tendencies to the surface. These can include traumatic events or excessive stress placed on the body. So, even though anxiety disorders may be common in a person’s family, it does not mean that they will have them or that there is nothing we can do to help correct them. Deep breathing and meditation has been shown to be effective in lowering stress and anxiety. One reason it works is that you can’t breathe deeply and be anxious at the same time since anxiety involves rapid, shallow breathing. So, if you find yourself feeling anxious, consciously slow your breathing down. Try to breathe in and out for at least a count of four and increase it to five, six or more if you can. Do this as often as you need to calm your nerves. Deep breathing is also part of learning to meditate. Meditation teaches you to quiet your mind and mentally step back from the worrisome mental chatter that often accompanies anxiety. As you learn to clear your mind of these obsessive thoughts, you will find your body relaxes at the same time. There are also supplements that can be helpful for easing anxiety.
