In certain cases, you may treat anxiety at home without the involvement of a doctor. These are limited to anxiety attacks of short duration in which you know the cause, the anxiety is short, it goes away by itself, and the cause can be eliminated. For example, you may be anxious over an upcoming public performance, a final exam, or a pending job interview.
- In such circumstances, stress may be relieved by such actions as these:
- Talking with a supportive person
- Watching TV
- Taking a long warm bath
- Resting in a dark room
- Deep breathing exercises
