With today’s economic problems, recession, job loses, auto industry problems and health care worries, life feels meaningless and pointless for some people. Some of them seek outward forms of help, including various types of addictions to fill the job. None of these provide any lasting solution. Instead a long-term form of anxiety sets in, and this can even lead to serious panic attacks. We’ll look at 3 ways to dodge it and help you start living a happy life in hard times…

Just what is anxiety? It’s your body’s inability to handle stress. It can manifest in many different forms like rapid heartbeat, fear, depression, and a feeling of hopelessness.

Overcoming anxiety is not a philosophy but a daily practice that takes a lot of effort on your part. Below are three things that you can try to help reduce or even eliminate your anxiety.

1) Let go of all perfectionist thinking. We all have the right to be less than perfect and we all make mistakes. Holding yourself up to such an impossible standard is only a huge prescription for anxiety.

2) You must have a support system. Seek out family and friends and let them know that you may need a shoulder to lean on or just someone to vent to every now and then. This is a huge benefit for those of us under lots of anxiety.

3) Live and let live. You will go through life and run into someone at every turn with a different opinion than you. That’s life. Walking away and respecting each other’s opinion without self-criticism or hatred toward the other is vital for you mental health. Otherwise, you will always be miserable.
