Here is a quick list of some studies about anxiety relieving measures.

Here is a quick list of some studies about anxiety relieving measures. This list goes along with a series I’ve done on YouTube on 4 proven techniques to relieve anxiety. I will also include a link to my anxiety playlist on YouTube. I encourage you to do your own research as well, there are loads of studies on each of these subjects :-)


My Anxiety Playlist on YouTube:




EFT (Emotional Freedom Tapping):


  • Efficacy in phobias (PDF of study in the link).


  • EFT efficacy for anxiety depression and more


“Reviews and meta-analyses of EFT demonstrate that it is an evidence-based practice and that its efficacy for anxiety, depression, phobias and PTSD is well-established. The research investigating physiological improvements after EFT intervention is limited; however, this study adds to the body of literature and suggests that EFT is associated with multidimensional improvements across a spectrum of physiological systems (Bach, et al, 2019).”



Deep Breathing To Calm Anxiety


  • Breathing exercises for anxiety and depression control with COPD patients in the hospital


  • Deep Breathing and Stress





Meditation/mindfulness:


  • Using meditation for anxiety and depression:

“Regardless of the various limitations present in the available literature, findings to date have consistently demonstrated that training focused on improving attention, awareness, acceptance, and compassion may facilitate more flexible and adaptive responses to stress (Edenfield & Saeed, 2012).”


Visualization To Combat Anxiety:

Visualization of “green spaces” used in athletes to decrease anxiety:







Extras:
