I have a lot of experience with anxiety; it runs in my family.
You may or may not be healthy enough for it, but the one thing that’s helped me the most is vigorous exercise. 10 minutes on an elliptical machine, or 20 minutes of really fast walking, cuts it down about 75%. This is not for people with heart problems, temperature regulation problems, etc.
