Hallie Gould

We've asked a neurologist how best to alleviate anxiety by working out, looked into morning rituals that will help, and tried to find other anxiety remedies as proposed by our readers and co-workers. The thing is, we're an anxious bunch. While it's not only this generation of 20-somethings that experiences anxiety, numerous studies have produced findings that prove millennials suffer from anxiety at a much higher rate than those who preceded them.

Jean Twenge, PhD, a social psychologist at San Diego State University and the author of Generation Me: Why Today’s Young Americans Are More Confident, Assertive, Entitled—and More Miserable Than Ever Before, wrote "Obviously there's a lot of good things about societal and technological progress, and in a lot of ways our lives are much easier than, say, our grandparents' or great-grandparents' lives. But there’s a paradox here that we seem to have so much ease and relative economic prosperity compared to previous centuries, yet there's this dissatisfaction, there's this unhappiness, there are these mental health issues in terms of depression and anxiety."

So here we are. Discussing another way to soothe and treat your anxiety because knowledge is power. Below, find 11 foods that can help give you some relief.
