Anxiety: Talking therapy ranks really high. Cognitive behavioral therapy or psychotherapy can be quite effective. Aim for daily exercise, 8 hours of sleep per night &good nutrition with 5 servings of veggies &4 of fruit per day. Try tai chi, yoga, qi gong, progressive muscle relaxation, deep breathing exercises &meditation. Don't isolate - spend time with friends and stay active. Consider med eval.
