    When we have a lot of anxiety, it puts worrisome thoughts into our heads. There's two ways to get rid of those thoughts.

    One is just to calm down. The easiest way to do this is to breathe slowly till you feel OK Two psychiatrists, Brown and Gerbarg, say a 10 or 20 min slow breathing exercise - 5 breaths a min - is good and 20 min twice a day is a therapy for anxiety. The exercise is inhale and exhale gently, 6 seconds each.

    When you're calm, you can think your way through a problem instead of just worrying about it. Think about the worst thing that can happen, how likely that is and what you could do if it happens. In a stressful situation, think about the different ways you can respond and decide which one is the most intelligent.

    Don't make mountains out of molehills.

    When you use the thinking brain, you get control of the emotional brain, and you feel better.

    Also, replace negative thoughts with positive thoughts. Count your blessings and remind yourself of your successes.

    The treatments for anxiety range from simple stress reduction methods to therapy and medication. Don't overlook stress management - it can help even with very bad anxiety. This tells you about a variety of things that can help with stress -
