Mindfullness or yoga: Anxiety can respond to relaxation, mindfulness, or yoga exercises. Also cognitive behavioral therapy can help you change your thinking patterns so you worry less. Medications for adults with anxiety can be tricky. Xanax is habit forming when taken over a long period of time. Sometimes the use of an SSRI antidepressant with anxiolitic (anxiety lowering) properties can be helpful, such as Proza
