There are plenty of different ways to help. There is always meditation and excersizes to try that could help. There are also plenty of herbs out there that are supposed to help with anxiety and depression. One way that i have found to work is to find a hobbie that you can just drown out the world and get lost in your work and it will help you feel better. Hobbies are the only natural remedy that i have found to work for me though. So i would have to give you the adivice to get on the web and search up some natural remedies.

Exercise, at least walking and stretching. Yoga, meditation, deep breathing techniques, self-hypnosis, psychotherapy/talk therapy, journaling, volunteering to help others, taking up a hobby to keep your body and mind busy. Eating healthy, avoiding sugars, sweets, refind carbohydrates. Avoid alcohol and caffine. Those are a few things I can think of off the top of my head. A good reminder of what I can do for myself, also, so thank you!
