Simple things to do to help the environment.

Unfortunately, people have not always been good custodians of the planet. We must all take proactive efforts toward cleaner living practices in order to conserve the environment and preserve the earth for our children and future generations.

We are the first generation to recognize that we are killing the world, and we may be the last to act. One of the most powerful things you can do is speak up, especially to the appropriate people.

  1. Reuse and recycle are two words that come to mind when thinking about the environment. Recycle Bin Made of PlasticThe largest environmental advantage comes from reducing the amount of “things” you consume. It’s ideal to avoid waste in the first place, so consider your purchases more carefully.Reusing objects saves both natural resources and energy that would otherwise be used to create new ones, as well as money.
  2. Consumption reduction can have a significant environmental impact. The three “R’s”—reduce, reuse, and recycle—get a lot of press, but the earth might benefit from a greater emphasis on the most crucial and overlooked “R”: trash.You say “no” when you refuse, which isn’t always easy. None of the freebies at events, the inexpensive things on clearance, the hot new children’s toys, or the latest devices that claim to improve your life are necessary. And they nearly invariably end up in the trash or in the back of a closet, forgotten.
  3. Instead of ordinary light bulbs, use energy-saving light bulbs. They last longer, saving you money (any little bit helps when it comes to a college budget, right?).Encourage you to turn off lights, televisions, and other appliances while not in use.When it’s not in use, turn down the heat or air conditioning. This is especially true in the transitional period between seasons. In the early fall, consider opening your windows or layering your clothing.
  4. Water is squandered on a far larger scale than we can see. While brushing your teeth, turn off the faucet. Wait until you’re ready to hop in the shower and wash your hair before turning it on. When washing dishes, try to use as little water as possible. It is beneficial to both the environment and your wallet to change old behaviors.
  5. Automobiles are hazardous to the environment. Taking public transportation, walking, or riding a bike to class are all healthier options that assist the environment, save money, and provide exercise!If you do need to drive, compare your schedules and residency locations to those in your classes. You may share the expense of gas and set up alternating driving schedules.

Conclusion

The most important method to help save nature and its species is to encourage others to realize its importance and beauty.

PROBLEMS FACED DUE TO COVID-19.

We all agree that Corona has made us sit at home spending much time with our family, cooking a variety of dishes with them. But with all of this corona has had us all, it has made us realize the importance of life, the family, and the people we love the most. It has taught us to live together with love & care and helping others where we can.   The pandemic has changed how we used to work, learn and interact and now for all this, first thing first social distancing is a big criterion and to follow the guidelines. Covid-19 has changed everything, Students who were busy with their day-to-day schedule, school, classes, extracurricular classes, have no time to think of themselves, creating new interests adults are getting along with their interests and getting to know about themselves in a much better way. So, it can be said that this pandemic hasn’t done all the bad things but this 1 year of life has become harsh on many people, industries, new startups, students, and many livelihoods. Many sectors are going through the impacts of pandemics. It is unsurprising to know that this pandemic has triggered mental health. and has also led to the great loss of human lives worldwide. There are millions of people who are on the verge of falling into poverty, it has been a great loss of economic and social losses by the pandemic.

Impact of covid-19 in India.
1. In 2020, many migrant workers were left unemployed and were left off their livelihood, because of, because of shutting down of factories, workplaces. So then millions of migrant workers decided to head towards their native places, escorted by their families, friends. Many of them walked 100 kilometers to be in their safe and comfortable place. The Government has helped through all of it, they even announced relief camps for the migrant workers. In May, the central government permitted the Indian railways to launch Shramik Special trains for them to travel. Government-provided free food, transportation to the workers as the problems for them haven’t been solved. 2. There was a drug shortage due to this pandemic as 70% of supplies of the medicines came from china, and in the early stage of covid, the situation in China was worse. Later India banned 26 exports of pharmaceutical companies, which led to the global shortage. During the second wave of the pandemic, India faced issues with important medicines of covid patients, which led their families to enter the Black Market, and the prices of the same were doubled up, and also led to the rise of these cost of raw materials for medicines.
3. when covid-19 cases increased in Mumbai in March, so the government declared the closure of schools and colleges. All the exams like CBSE, JEE, engineering exams were postponed and CBSE released the revised timetables including safety precautions for examinations. There was the cancellation of all the regular exams in college and schools and were promoted based on their prior performance. schools, colleges, and institutions have adapted e-learning and many have adopted this trend.
4. the First wave was a major impact as compared to the second wave. Since covid-19 has started the poverty is increased and many lives have been affected. In the first wave the power demand, labor participation, and railway fright were on-demand, and in the second wave, it wasn’t that much. Indian stock exchange has witnessed a big crash in March 2020. On 12th March 2020, the Indian stock exchange suffered a huge loss since 2017. Sensex fell 4000 points (13.15%), NSE NIFTY fell 1150 points (12.98%). Since October the stock market, it is at a normal pace. 5. In March 2020, the government announced that no International flights will be allowed to India. Indigo and Go first started cancelling flights. Later in March 20202, the government announced the cancellation of domestic flights too. Indian railway put many restrictions due to covid, they removed the curtains, they do not provide blankets, bedsheets, and cancelled 3700 trains. Local trains and metro services were banned and are only open to government officials. 6. Due to the emergence of lockdown, people started panic buying, retailers saw their average sale was doubling. This seems like retailers and consumers good firms pay were doubling in numbers. Which is a good thing for them but others were struggling a lot. People didn’t have anything to eat or buy. 7. Several sporting events were cancelled in India and foreign countries. Many film academy awards were postponed, cinema halls were shut, which led to the boom of the OTT platform as all the movies were releasing on it.

India and other countries are still facing covid-19. Rumors say that there is going to be a third wave as there are traces found in many parts of the UK, the USA, and many other places. We all know that the Olympics has begun in Tokyo, a fear of an increase in cases is still a topic to worry about. Covid positive rate is decreasing day by day. We can’t say this all over India because the highest cases are in Maharashtra. Vaccination has started in India has begun since March and millions of people are getting vaccinated in a day. It is a proud and positive thing for us to fight back with this covid situations.

Social Media : A boon or a bane?

Social Media is a virtual interactive platform for sharing ideas, views and information. It has become an inseparable part of our lives as it keeps us aware of the daily happenings around the world. With social media, we are just a few clicks away to access the unknown things. Without a doubt, social media has revolutionised the process of communication and with every passing day, communication game is getting stronger. Social Media applications like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, Skype and other such apps has made life way more easier than ever.

Like the two sides of a coin, Social Media too has two sides.

Positive side of Social Media

Through social media, we can communicate with people even from far away places. We can broaden our friend circle through it by constantly interacting with unknown people and keeping in touch with our old friends.

Social Media has become a globalised platform to showcase the talents of people. People with various skills share their talents in the form of videos and post it on social media. It provides them with an opportunity to receive appreciation for their talent that further boost their confidence to carry on with what they excel in.

People can use Social Media platforms for business purposes. This is the most common thing that we witness nowadays. People start their business through social media applications like Facebook, Instagram, YouTube etc. YouTube is one such popular application that people use to earn money. People post videos on YouTube and gets paid if they fulfill the various criteria of getting paid, for example, crossing a certain number of views count, likes counts or subscribers count. A lot of businesses have flourished on Social Media and are still flourishing smoothly.

Social Media helps students in education too. Teachers can make use of social media to teach their students out of classroom situation. Especially in the time of pandemic when attending classes is not possible, social media applications have taken the place of classroom. Teachers takes online classes through various online meeting applications and share reading materials through other social media applications. Moreover, students can get extra information from surfing through social media.

Although Social Media has connected a lot of people and is making life easy, yet it has its own drawbacks.

Social Media makes people addicted to it when people constantly keeps on using social media. People are seen to spend quite a lot of time on social media ignoring other productive works. Social Media addiction keeps people aloof from real life situation that hampers their social life in the long run.

Social Media takes a toll on human health, be it physical health or mental health. Because a person sticks his eyes to the screen of various gadgets he is exposed to various eye ailments, headaches and body aches. Even his sleep schedule is disturbed when social media use is more than what is required.

Social Media gives us an unrealistic expectations of life and when in real we fail to meet with what we expected we become disappointed. When this disappointment goes on for a long time, we push ourselves to the web of depression. This greatly disturb our mental health.

Cyber bullying, hacking, catfishing etc are taking at a large scale in the present times. Social Media users are the easy targets of these online criminals. Because social media platforms has a thin layer of privacy, personal and private information of the users can be hacked. A person’s identity can be used in a derogatory manner by the criminals.

Social Media can also promote unhealthy competition among its users. Almost everyone on social media races to show how exciting their life is. Even though they lead a simple life yet they fake their lifestyle. When the other users constantly witness a happy and happening life of others, they feel insecured and inferior. In such cases, a person might not appreciate his own life and keeps on complaining about everything.

It can be said that social media is both a boon and a bane. Social Media can be used in both positive and negative ways. It is a great tool if operated with good intentions.

The ART of Writing Poems

Writing a poem is about observing the world around you and then describing it to the readers enabling them to see your perspective and the emotions. You can describe the beauty, the intensity, the desire, the pain and everything you feel through your poems in a beautiful way because remember –

“Poems are paintings which are made up of words.”

The Begining

TIPS FOR POETRY WRITING FOR BEGINNERS

START READING A LOT OF POEMS

If you want to write poetry then start by reading them. You don’t necessarily have to understand the deep underlying meaning behind everything, but try to understand the picture that the poet is trying to show you. Find your own interpretation of the poem and them compare how it differs from the original interpretation. It helps you to understand the very essence of poems and poetry writing.

You can also find your favourite poet, or you can go for the classical ones like Robert Frost, Mark Twain, William Wordsworth etc. Or, you can go for the greatest of all times William Shakespeare.

INCREASE YOUR VOCABULARY

As basic as it could get, but this is one of the most important part which helps you to write and put your imagination and express your thoughts accurately on paper is the correct usage of vocabulary and grammar. You need to avoid cliche in your poems, as it takes the power away because if the phrase is common then so is the emotion you are trying to express.

For example, you may notice you have used the cliche, “she was as busy as a bee” to describe a person in your poem. You may replace this cliche with a more unique phrase, such as “her hands were always occupied” or “she moved through the kitchen at a frantic pace.”

Increase your Knowledge

START SMALL

The first step is the most significant but the most difficult step to take. Therefore, you need to start small to give yourself a feeling of accomplishment which gives a boost to your morale and keeps you motivated. A simple rhyming poem can be a non-intimidating entry way to poetry writing. 

Don’t mistake quantity for quality; a pristine seven-line free verse poem is more impressive than a sloppy, rambling epic of blank verse, which took far less time to compose. So keep calm and keep steady.

BE A KEEN OBSERVER

One of the key skill of writing authentic poems is observing your environment and being sensitive to situations. This enables you to express ordinary situation from an extraordinary view point. As with all forms of English language writing, communication is the name of the game in poetry, so if you want to tell short stories in your poems, embrace that instinct.

Learn to Observe

CONNECT WITH OTHER ASPIRING POETS

Find people who share your interest in poetry or in literature in general. Having your own community of people goes a long way in any field including poetry. Poets connect with one another via poetry readings and perhaps poetry writing classes. Good poetry can take many forms, and through a community, you may encounter different forms that vary from the type of poem you typically write—but are just as artistically inspiring. Seek out a poetry group where you can hear different types of poetry, discuss the art form, jot down new ideas, and learn from the work of your peers.

A supportive community can help you brainstorm ideas, influence your state of mind as an artist, and share poetry exercises that may have helped other members of the group produce great poetry.

CONCLUSION

Humans can express their thoughts in so many ways, writing poems is just one of the written forms but it is the most beautiful forms that one can choose to express their emotions and messages for their readers. So start with a new poem today that is yours for the world to read and understand.

India’s biggest conman: Natwarlal

Mithilesh Kumar Srivastava Aka Natwarlal

You must have heard the name of Natwarlal, but do you know this name, which has become the synonym of vicious thugs, was first used for whom. The real name of that thug was Mithilesh Kumar Srivastava who was born in Siwan district of Bihar. Even Tata, Birla, Ambani were not saved from their fraud. He sold the Taj Mahal, Red Fort, Rashtrapati Bhavan and even the Parliament House along with its 545 sitting MPs. That too not once but many times.

He was such a thug who became a legend in his lifetime due to his exploits of thugs. A thug whose village people take pride in fact that he was born in his village. A thug whom thugs across the country considers as their ideal. The name of this thug was Natwarlal which later came to be used for every vicious thug.

Natwarlal was born in the year 1912 in the village of Bangra, which comes under Siwan district of Bihar. Before becoming a thug, he was a lawyer. Natwarlal cheated hundreds of people of crores of rupees during his lifetime and had more than 50 fake names. He was also adept at forging signatures of famous people. He had duped big industrialists whose list included the names of Tata, Birla and Ambani.

Natwarlal stole lakhs of rupees from shopkeepers by giving fake cheques and demand drafts. More than 100 cases were registered against him and the police of 8 states were behind him. He was also caught and sentenced to 113 years in jail but no jail in the country could stop Natwarlal. He managed to escape 8 times from the different jails of the country.

When he last escaped from the prison in 1966, he was 84 years old and used to walk in a wheelchair. He was brought from Kanpur jail to AIIMS Hospital in New Delhi for treatment under police supervision. Natwarlal was last seen on 24 June 1996 and after that police could never catch him.

The way Natwarlal’s life remained mysterious, his death was also mysterious. In 2009, Natwarlal’s lawyer filed an application in the court to quash more than 100 cases pending against him as he died on 25 July 2009. However Natwarlal’s brother Ganga prasad Srivastava says that Natwarlal died in 1996 and was cremated in Ranchi.

A film based on Mithilesh Kumar Srivastava’s life ‘Raja Natwarlal’ was also made in which Paresh Rawal and Emraan Hashmi worked. In 2004, Aaj Tak aired several episodes based on Natwarlal’s life in its crime show ‘Jurm’.

Humans is Racism.

What’s a Racism? On Google one can read “prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism by an individual, community, or institution against a person or people on the basis of their membership of a particular racial or ethnic group, typically one that is a minority or marginalized”.

Racism is one of the most toxic topic one can talk on and on but is the talker him/her a total sane. Who can different a Racist? No one. Simply, A racist is person who judges a person based on their appearance, how they talk, how they behave, spread non existence deed, ganging up a particular person or group based on differences of culture and appearance. Daily we come across incidents referring to racism. Few weeks back, In America at different states many Asians were being targeted and violated just because they look like Chinese. The victims were not Chinese they were just having their day and suddenly they become a victim of RACISM. Even during start of 2020 Covid pandemic many Asians living in India faced a lot of discrimination just because they were Asian and look like Asian which is Racism only.

Not only comm people but also world famous celebrities and renowned personalities are also victim of Racism just because they look different or they try to change the stereotype of society. One of the most controversial matter is most Popular World wide superstar boy band group from South Korea, BTS. All age of people now knows who BTS is. Seven boy band group member, pure Asian from south Korea. They won Grammy award first time in 2017 during which many American and other countries news reporter covered news regarding how seven slim waist boys sweep the world music industry, they jumped commenting on their looks, referring them females being male though. Pure act of racism yet it is still going on at time.

So where did the problem raised, discrimination faced by those people. Humans. Humans are the cause of pain of others. Racism are lead by we humans only because the other one looks superior, more successful and financially stable than you that’s why they racism on others. Racism can only changed when you decided to sit on other’s seat and feel the situation. When someone else react the same you did to other than you will feel the inferior complexion of yours. Racism victims tend to take drastic steps at deadly end, therefore being a human. Creature created by god as believed do at-least appreciate others if you can’t at least don’t try to discriminate someone or other race or religion because in-front of god everyone is same.

Friendship-The prefect bond

They both feel immense care and love for each other. Usually, a friendship is shared by two people who have similar interests and feelings.

The definition of a true friendship is someone who has your back, no matter what. They watch out for you and ensure you are not in danger. They will never purposely lead you into making decisions that aren’t good for you. a true friendship will always have your best interest at heart.

Friendship, a state of enduring affection, esteem, intimacy, and trust between two or few more people. It is recognized by both members of the relationship and is characterized by a bond or tie of reciprocated affection. It is not obligatory, two or four individuals choose to form a friendship with each other.

Friendship means familiar and liking of each other’s mind. People who are friends talk to each other and spend time together. They trust one another and also help each other when they are in trouble or are hurt. Friends are people that can be looked up to and trusted. Usually friends have similar interests.

Being able to have and confidence in your friend is one of the most important requirements of a strong relationship because true friendship means you are able to count on one another. Part of caring for a friend is honoring what they tell you, no matter the significance, with confidentially and respect.

Good friends are loyal and accept you for who you are during the good and bad times. Good friends are also honest, honest enough tell you when you’re not being a good friend yourself. Along with good friends who are present, loyal, and honest, most people want friends who are trustworthy.

A recent Harvard study concluded that having solid friendships in our life even helps promote brain health. Friends choices that keep us strong and allow us to rebound from health issues and disease more quickly. Friendship is also important to our mental health.

Mental health

The lack of friendship has been found to play a role in increasing risk of suicidal ideation among female adolescents, including having more friends who were not themselves friends with one another. However, no similar effect was observed for males. Having few or no friends is a major indicator in the diagnosis of a range of mental disorders. Higher friendships quality directly contributes to self-esteem, self-confidence, and social development. A world Happiness Database study found that people with close friendship did not increase happiness. Other studies have suggested that children who have friendships of a highly quality may be protected against the development of certain disorder, such a s anxiety and depression. Conversely, having few friends is associated with dropping out of school as well as aggression and adult crime. Peer rejection is also associated with lower later aspiration in the work force, and participation in social activities, while higher levels of friendship was associated with higher adult self-esteem.

friendship is in many respects a comfortable love relationship. Friendships involve as little or as much intimacy as the partners are inclined to express at any given time. Friends are not normally obligated to exchange benefits, but do so in ways that are often so natural as to be unwitting.

Why Child marraige should be banned ?

Child marraige refers to a marraige ( formal or informal ) of a child aged less than 18 to another child or an adult. In india a third of the global total girl children are married . Although child marraige is banned in india but this practice is still prevalent in many parts of the country like UP , Bihar , Maharashtra etc . It is a global issue as it is also prevalent in countries like Niger , Bangladesh , Mali , Chad , Guinea and Nepal .

Child marraige is primarily a poverty driven practice. A girl child is seen either as a burden or a ‘commodity’ which can be married off or sold for money. Often a girl loses all the future prospects of education after the marraige . Also , girls are forced to become a mother as soon as they get married in many countries. This puts them at a higher risk of STDs , teenage pregnancy , abortion and premature births. They are involved in household activities and have no chance of making a future or career.

A young boy who is put in a child marraige may not be ready to accept fatherhood. He may not be able to earn livelihood for the family.

Often in a child marraige , parenthood is inadequate and the marraige can be unstable . Most of the times there is no legal consent taken from either gender . Child marraige can leave children emotionally and physically traumatised and scarred for their life . In an age where they should study , play , make friends and discover themselves , they are involved in parenting and earning for the family.

Do You Live with Anxiety? Here Are 11 Ways to Cope

Breathe: There are ways to calm your anxiety

Know that feeling of your heart beating faster in response to a stressful situation? Or perhaps, instead, your palms get sweaty when you’re confronted with an overwhelming task or event.

That’s anxiety — our body’s natural response to stress.

If you haven’t recognized your triggers yet, here are a few common: your first day at a new job, meeting your partner’s family, or giving a presentation in front of a lot of people. Everyone has different triggers, and identifying them is one of the most important steps to coping and managing anxiety attacks.

Identifying your triggers can take some time and self-reflection. In the meantime, there are things you can do to try to help calm or quiet your anxiety from taking over.

5 quick ways to cope with anxiety

If your anxiety is sporadic and getting in the way of your focus or tasks, there are some quick natural remedies that could help you take control of the situation.

If your anxiety is focused around a situation, such as being worried about an upcoming event, you may notice the symptoms are short-lived and usually subside after the anticipated event takes place.

Question your thought pattern

Negative thoughts can take root in your mind and distort the severity of the situation. One way is to challenge your fears, ask if they’re true, and see where you can take back control.

Practice focused, deep breathing

Try breathing in for 4 counts and breathing out for 4 counts for 5 minutes total. By evening out your breath, you’ll slow your heart rate which should help calm you down.

The 4-7-8 technique is also known to help anxiety.

Use aromatherapy

Whether they’re in oil form, incense, or a candle, scents like lavender, chamomile, and sandalwood can be very soothing.

Aromatherapy is thought to help activate certain receptors in your brain, potentially easing anxiety.

Go for a walk or do 15 minutes of yoga

Sometimes, the best way to stop anxious thoughts is to walk away from the situation. Taking some time to focus on your body and not your mind may help relieve your anxiety.

Write down your thoughts

Writing down what’s making you anxious gets it out of your head and can make it less daunting.

These relaxation tricks are particularly helpful for those who experience anxiety sporadically. They may also work well with someone who has generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) when they’re in a bind too!

However, if you suspect you have GAD, quick coping methods shouldn’t be the only kind of treatment you employ. You’ll want to find long-term strategies to help lessen the severity of symptoms and even prevent them from happening.

6 long-term strategies for coping with anxiety

If anxiety is a regular part of your life, it’s important to find treatment strategies to help you keep it in check. It might be a combination of things, like talk therapy and meditation, or it might just be a matter of cutting out or resolving your anxiety trigger.

If you’re not sure where to start, it’s always helpful to discuss options with a mental health professional who might suggest something you hadn’t thought of before.

Identify and learn to manage your triggers

You can identify triggers on your own or with a therapist. Sometimes they can be obvious, like caffeine, drinking alcohol, or smoking. Other times they can be less obvious.

Long-term problems, such as financial or work-related situations, may take some time to figure out — is it a due date, a person, or the situation? This may take some extra support, through therapy or with friends.

When you do figure out your trigger, you should try to limit your exposure if you can. If you can’t limit it — like if it’s due to a stressful work environment that you can’t currently change — using other coping techniques may help.

Some general triggers:

  • a stressful job or work environment
  • driving or traveling
  • genetics — anxiety could run in your family
  • withdrawal from drugs or certain medications
  • side effects of certain medications
  • trauma
  • phobias, such as agoraphobia (fear of crowded or open spaces) and claustrophobia (fear of small spaces)
  • some chronic illnesses like heart disease, diabetes, or asthma
  • chronic pain
  • having another mental illness such as depression
  • caffeine

Adopt cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)

CBT helps people learn different ways of thinking about and reacting to anxiety-causing situations. A therapist can help you develop ways to change negative thought patterns and behaviors before they spiral.

Do a daily or routine meditation

While this takes some practice to do successfully, mindful meditation, when done regularly, can eventually help you train your brain to dismiss anxious thoughts when they arise.

If sitting still and concentrating is difficult, try starting with yoga.

Try supplements or change your diet

Changing your diet or taking supplements is definitely a long-term strategy. Research shows certain supplements or nutrients can help anxiety reduction.

These include:

  • lemon balm
  • omega-3 fatty acids
  • ashwagandha
  • green tea
  • valerian root
  • kava kava
  • dark chocolate (in moderation)

However, it can take up to three months before your body is actually running on the nutrition these herbs and foods provide. If you’re taking other medications, make sure to discuss herbal remedies with your doctor.

Keep your body and mind healthy

Exercising regularly, eating balanced meals, getting enough sleep, and staying connected to people who care about you are great ways to stave off anxiety symptoms.

Ask your doctor about medications

If your anxiety is severe enough that your mental health practitioner believes you’d benefit from medication, there are a number of directions to go, depending on your symptoms. Discuss your concerns with your doctor.

When is my anxiety harmful?

Identifying what sort of anxiety you’re dealing with can be somewhat challenging because how one’s body reacts to perceived danger can be entirely different compared to another person.

It’s likely you heard anxiety as a blanket term for that general feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease. It’s often a feeling grown in response to an upcoming event that has an uncertain outcome.

Every person deals with it at one time or another, because it’s part of our brain’s response to a perceived danger — even if that danger isn’t real.

That said, there are times anxiety can get serious and turn into anxiety attacks that initially feel manageable and then gradually build up over a few hours. (This is different from a panic attack, which is out of the blue and subsides.)

Signs of an anxiety attack

These are some of the more common mental and physical symptoms of anxiety:

  • feelings of danger, panic, or dread
  • nervousness or restlessness
  • rapid heart rate
  • sweating
  • trembling or chills
  • tiredness or weakness
  • gastrointestinal problems
  • difficulty focusing
  • hyperventilation

It’s also possible to experience an anxiety and panic attack simultaneously. The quick coping strategies mentioned above may also help with a panic attack.

Other mindful strategies to cope with panic attacks include focusing on an object, repeating a mantra, closing your eyes, and going to your happy place.

Symptoms of a panic attack

  • fear of dying
  • feeling like you’re losing control
  • a sense of detachment
  • heart palpitations
  • shortness of breath
  • chest pains or tightness
  • nausea
  • feeling lightheaded or dizzy
  • numbness or tingling in your extremities
  • feeling hot or cold

What causes anxiety?

If you notice that quick tips haven’t been working, you may want to consider seeing a professional for help. Especially if you believe you have GAD and its interfering with routine activities and causing physical symptoms.

A mental health professional can help with streamlining the process of identifying your triggers, maintaining long-term strategies through behavioral therapy, medications, and more.

For example, if your anxiety stems from a trauma you experienced in your past, it can be helpful to work through that with a licensed therapist. On the other hand, if you’re brain chemistry predisposes you to chronic anxiety, you may need to go on medication to manage it.

Anxiety may always be a part of your life, but it shouldn’t overtake your day-to-day. Even the most extreme anxiety disorders can be treated so that the symptoms aren’t overwhelming.

Once you find what treatment works best for you, life should be a lot more enjoyable and a lot less daunting
