Prevention of anxiety essentially involves an awareness of life's stresses and your own ability to cope with them. This can often be a difficult task in our busy and hectic 21st century.
Given the fast pace of our lives, it's important to develop coping mechanisms to handle stress. They might include:
- Relaxation exercises, including deep breathing
- Adequate rest
- Health diet
- Interpersonal skills in dealing with difficult people and situations or parenting skills training in dealing with your children
