mindfulness to combat anxiety

What is anxiety?

Anxiety, whether barely recognizable or overwhelmingly obvious, is one of the biggest mental health and wellness issues the world is facing today. Anxiety comes in all shapes and sizes and can be debilitating. For some, anxiety seems to always hit under certain circumstances. For others, it’s completely random and can derail an entire day. And for many, it’s like an unwanted companion that never seems to leave. We’re all looking for a way to resolve our anxiety. Yet, anxiety meds just mask the issue – so how do we get to the bottom of it? How do we get ahead of anxiety and address it before it starts?

What causes anxiety?

Anxiety can be caused by a lot of factors: difficult life circumstances, traumatic events, neurological tendencies, and more. Some of us have lived with anxiety for a long time, while others may be experiencing it for the first time. Some of us are triggered by things we can see coming, and sometimes we’re blindsided for reasons we don’t understand. All we know for sure is that anxiety has largely been dealt with reactively, instead of proactively. How do you get ahead of an anxious moment before it comes? How do you live in a way that old triggers don’t cause the same neurological responses – and that random triggers don’t occur at all?

Reactive vs proactive

When it comes to our mental health, living reactively means we’re always braced in a state of fear, waiting for the next trigger or difficult day. Living proactively looks like making changes to our daily internal and external habits. These healthier choices allow us to get ahead of anxiety before it happens. The good news is, science has shown that the human brain has the ability to heal itself over time – which can mitigate and positively affect anxiety disorders. This healing happens through our ability to retrain our neuroplasticity by implementing mindful habits. This can look like: practicing breathwork, changing our self-talk, making healthier lifestyle choices, and a little help from sound frequency therapy. So, let’s dive deeper.

Mindfulness in daily habits

Using mindfulness to simply speak kind words over ourselves has an incredible long-term effect on our neurology and mental health. Over time, old pathways and defense mechanisms, that would have caused anxiety before, can be reframed entirely! Cultivating mindfulness reduces anxiety by changing neural pathways before they’re fired up. A real example of how to stay mindful in any situation is to be honest with yourself about the state of mind you’re in. Be patient with yourself in these moments and take a second to practice a positive mindful habit. It’s okay to acknowledge when you are having a stressful day, but the key to changing your brain is through practicing mindfulness in the moments and ways you can.

Soaak Frequencies

According to over 5 years of in-clinic research, the most effective way to combat anxiety is with the Soaak Protocol – sound frequency therapy and thoughtfully-written Mindful Intentions have been shown to holistically reduce anxiety in countless individuals. Soaak Mindful Intentions change the way your brain behaves from the inside out, and the Soaak Anti-Anxiety frequency retrains your cells from the outside in.
