A large amount of our clients come to us to help reduce their stress and anxiety. There are many self-help strategies that can assist in coping with panic disorder, stress, and anxiety. Numerous self-care activities and relaxation techniques are available to help clients feel more calm, peaceful, and in control. Some of the most common relaxation strategies include breathing exercises, progressive muscle relaxation, and visualization. These techniques have been found to reduce anxiety and may even help manage panic symptoms.
A few studies have found that according to verywellmind.com: “Yoga is an activity that actually encompasses all three of these common relaxation techniques. Additionally, yoga has been known to help ease stress, reduce feelings of nervousness, and enhance mindfulness. For these reasons, yoga has been considered to be potentially beneficial for people with anxiety disorders, including panic disorder.” (https://www.verywellmind.com/yoga-for-panic-disorder-2584114)
Also, Harvard did a research study on pain, and stress response. They had concluded this: “But for many patients dealing with depression, anxiety, or stress, yoga may be a very appealing way to better manage symptoms. Indeed, the scientific study of yoga demonstrates that mental and physical health are not just closely allied but are essentially equivalent. The evidence is growing that yoga practice is a relatively low-risk, high-yield approach to improving overall health.”(https://www.health.harvard.edu/mind-and-mood/yoga-for-anxiety-and-depression)
