Do what you love

It could be singing, painting, dancing, gardening, etc. Anything which gives you peace and happiness to your mind and soul is what you should devote your time to.
Get comfortable with the discomfort
While most of us consider anxiety as something which needs to be avoided, it can actually fuel positive change when you know how to use it. Know that anxiety is a natural emotion that lives in the gap between where we are and where we want to be. We really need to reframe how we look at anxiety. It is not something to run away from, but something which can be used as productive energy.

Research have revealed a correlation between eating unhealthy and having high levels of stress and anxiety.

Rather, add more wholesome and grounding foods such as coconut oil, root vegetables, green leafy vegetables, grass-fed and grass-finished meats. These foods are going to help nourish your body.
