Teenage anxiety: Depends on what is causing anxiety. Some issues need help from your doctor. At times increasing exercise, using yoga and meditation, talking out problems with your parents and friends will help. Keep a healthy lifestyle and be sure not to use recreational drugs or alcohol as this makes anxiety worse.

Stay active: Exercise is a great way to relieve stress. Your body releases endorphins during exercise, which can help you feel calm. If you exercise 30 - 60 minutes a day, your stress levels can improve. When stressed, take 5 slow, deep breaths with your eyes closed, then roll your shoulders forward 5 times, then back 5 times. This will slow your heart rate and release tension in your neck and shoulders.
