Drink more water.

Water is a great quencher of thirst but more importantly here -a great quencher of anxiety.There is no quicker way to stop anxiety than drinking fresh water.

Nearly every function of the body is monitored and pegged to the efficient flow of water through our system. Water transports hormones, chemical messengers, and nutrients to vital organs of the body.

When we don’t keep our bodies well hydrated, they may react with a variety of signals… some of which are symptoms, of anxiety. Studies have shown that being just half a liter dehydrated can increase your cortisol levels which is the stress hormone that makes you feel more anxious and on edge.

When you are suffering from frequent panic attacks your stress response is firing more than usual and this creates a buildup of toxins in your system that need to be flushed out. Studies show most of the population are dehydrated and people who under constant stress are even more so. This is why its so important to keep yourself well hydrated all the time when you are anxious.

The key to re-balancing a deficit of fluids is to drink eight glasses of fresh water daily. However You have to spread this intake of water throughout the day and not drink it all in one go. Otherwise you don’t give your body a chance to absorb it and the excess will just pass through your body. Sip your water throughout the day for maximum absorption.

When you are aware that dehydration is a factor that contributes to anxiety and nervousness you start to pay much greater attention to how much you are drinking daily. Personally, I have found that not only does regular intake of water ward off any subtle feelings of anxiety, but it is also incredibly useful for building stamina and avoiding fatigue. Increasing the amount of fresh water you drink to eight glasses a day is a very easy step to incorporate into your daily routine and can have such a huge impact on the speed of your recovery from anxiety.

The easiest way to ensure you are getting enough is to make it easy for yourself by having water placed in strategic locations. That might mean having bottled water in the car , at your desk or any place you spend time Beside the TV or computer) . If you place it in positions that are visible you will be reminded ot drink it.

If the water is out of sight it quickly goes out of mind. With all new habits you want to form you have to make it easy for yourself or else you will drop it after a few days. So most of the effort you have to make is just ensuring there is water around you and that the bottles stay full. The drinking part is easy.

One thing I would caution against is not drinking too much before bed only because it might disrupt your sleep with you needing to use the bathroom in the middle of the night. Sleep is important and we dont want to interfere with that.

So for the entire length of this coaching program I will be sending reminders about different things and water is one of them. If you join me on a call I will be asking you about it. Dont let me down,

You will be really surprised how much of difference water can make in just one week."
