Let an Indianapolis psychiatrist help manage your anxiety
For many Americans, stress is part of day-to-day life: Pressure at work, demands at home -- and seemingly never-ending construction on Interstate 465. We seem willing to take on more and more stress as part of our everyday routines.
Sometimes there are simple and easy things you can do to combat stress. For example, Indianapolis has no shortage of great green space to take advantage of. Consider the Indianapolis Museum of Art’s Fairbanks Art & Nature Park (better known around town as the 100 Acres), or walk the downtown canal. No matter what your preferred park is, getting out and being active is a great way to help put ordinary day-to-day stresses to rest.
Experts also suggest yoga as a stress reliever. Concentrating on your body and your breathing allows you to relax and stop fixating on anything besides the moment at hand. You can search angies list to find fitness centers that offer yoga classes.
That said, if what you are experiencing is not just simple stress but anxiety, relaxation techniques alone may not be enough. It may be time to seek out an Indianapolis psychiatrist or psychologist, who may recommend a combination of medication and guidance on what to do during a panic attack. A treatment plan from a mental health professional, coupled with your efforts, can help you manage this legitimate medical disorder.
