So what is the point? Well, it's quite simple: eliminate processed foods, reduce sugar consumption and, of course, make a big change to healthy foods (including fruits, vegetables and lean proteins).
And oh, do not forget to drink a lot, lots of water!
2. Stop smoking
Do you smoke? If so, you will most likely reach for one or two cigarettes when things go beyond your control.
But hey, you should know that smoking is just a quick fix for anxiety; It can only make things worse over time.
Why? Well, it's mainly because most, if not all, of the chemicals (including nicotine) in cigarette smoke alter the pathways in the brain related to anxiety.
In short, smoking causes or worsens anxiety symptoms. So yes, you certainly will not be wrong if you leave it.

And, unfortunately, your anxiety can only get stronger.
In addition, the whole idea of using alcohol to reduce anxiety can lead to alcohol dependence and, of course, is a new problem in itself.
Just do your best to reduce your consumption or stop completely.
