Healthy ways to relieve anxiety?

Postby jilall78 » Tue Apr 21, 2020 6:28 pm

I've been having all kinds of anxiety lately due to work and other things and I'm increasingly using porn and sex to alleviate it. It's starting to become dangerous legally and personally. I can't drink and I can't take psych meds because of my job. I really can't even go to therapy. Does anybody have any good healthy alternatives? I've tried riding my bike with my friends but that just doesn't satisfy me the same way.

Hi jilall78,

For me, my anger & my anxiety go hand in hand, so I’ve found a pinned thread in the anger management board here extremely helpful: it’s called how to manage anger & reduce stress, I think.

Riding your bike is good. I also have been riding my bike lately too. There’s a hill behind my house, I can barely breathe by the time I get to the top & it gets my heart rate way up. That calms me.

Good luck.

Some time a real aggressive day on a punching bag brings great results and you have that some kind of euphoria as u walk away from the bag

Hi Jilall78,

Anxiety for me is an issue too. I wish i could tell you exactly how to reduce your anxiety but there are soo many ways to reduce it. not every solution works for everyone. For me (sometimes) depending on the situation I'm in I simply practice breathing exercises where i inhale through the mouth hold my breath for as long as I can without passing out then slowly exhale. That however does not work in every situation. Another thing I like to do is work out. I find that deep exercise lets out all the negative energy and gives me a renewed positive energy. Again please give these a try maybe one of these things will work for you. Good luck!
