Experts explain `` easy to ease anxiety '' that can be practiced immediately
Humans are anxious creatures, and if bad thoughts cross their heads, they will lose attention to insignificant things, become unable to sleep, hurt someone, etc. Affect. James Carmody, a professor of medicine and health science, shows a simple way to ease anxiety and calm the mind.
Why we are hard-wired to worry, and what we can do to calm down
According to Carmody, who studies mental and physical relationships and teaches it to both doctors and patients, most of the ways to reduce anxiety are based on simple principles. By understanding this principle, they can practice 'relieving anxiety' in their daily lives.
Past research has shown that humans feel happiness when they focus on their actions, not when they are distracted.
The reason is brain activity that works behind the consciousness of people who are not focused on tasks. The defocused brain begins to imagine the future, 'what and how' based on human needs. It is thought that such 'future imagination' is influenced by human ancestors' thoughts on 'plans' to avoid threats and ensure survival.

Mindfulness training focuses on the feeling of breathing. 'It may seem simple, but the mind is unconsciously resisting. Even if you try to concentrate on breathing many times, within a few seconds, your consciousness gets caught up in your imagination. Observing gives you the ability to provide real-time mental insights and self-regulating spirits, 'said Carmody.
Mr. Carmody says, 'By paying attention to breathing and observing yourself, you can also clarify your interest in the past and the future', and when the idea of 'what goes wrong?' doing.

When you can concentrate on your awareness of breathing, stress hormones are reduced , and mood-enhancing hormones such as serotonin and dopamine are secreted in the brain. The result is a natural relaxation and calmness, says Carmody.
In addition to mindfulness, Carmody also lists yoga, tai chi, cognitive therapy, and self-assured minds as ways to ease anxiety. Yoga and Tai Chi are characterized by focusing on the flow of sensation associated with a series of movements. Yoga has also been shown to not only reduce anxiety, but also reduce stress and lower blood pressure . Carmody says that cognitive therapy, self-assured minds, etc. can counter unsettled emotions by guiding their minds to reassured thinking.
