I would suggest starting slow like go for a walk on a regular basis. may be 30 mins then to an hour. Walking helps clear mind and also it's a good basic workout. It might sound very simple and basic but taking care of your body physically has a lot of impact on mental health too. Hope it helps!

Studies have found that more and more anxiety and stress are caused by mainstream media and social media. Mainstream media makes a person feel like they have to live in fear constantly. These media gain popularity and audience by peddling fear and uncertainty so that people keep coming back to watch their show and thus they make profit while their viewers are made to live in fear. Turn on the news and you will see how the world seems like a worst place to live but if you don't watch TV and enjoy your neighbors, friends, enjoy the weather, the walks, etc, then life is amazing and great. So stay away from media / news.

Social media is a source of anxiety and stress for many as they do not know how to cope with their apparent failures in life as all they see is people posting pictures of happiness and greatness and success. This makes people feel like failures and thus despair.

Life makes people into two categories of mindset. One mindset is that of being at comfort level with one's existence so that external influences do not impact one's happiness and the other mindset is the one that blows with the wind. These mindset tries to hang on to different things they see in media and social media which tries to define what being cool is and what is needed for happiness. So they get blown by every gush of wind in different directions, always trying a find a meaning in life. Trying to be accepted. These type of people will find anxiety and stress to be their attachment if they don't try to break away from the status quo.

My two cents..

I am logging to Sajha.com after decades.
Just want to help a fellow Nepali. I've had and still have anxiety, but I'm very much in control over it.
1. Know the trigger
What is it? Job? Relationship? Money? Family? Responsibility? Driving (your case)?.Try to fix the trigger. Stay away from people who cause it, even if it means your family. If you cannot, then solve the issue. If you cannot fix it, then you have to train your brain to let it go. It is ok not to make too much money like you want to, live with that peace of mind. It is ok, if you're not as successful as your brother, let it go and train your mind to rest and not think about it.
2. Alcohol
This is the killer for anxiety. You might feel like it is helping but in reality alcohol will make it worse and things will get worse as you age. Quit it ASAP. I gave up after more than 30 years of drinking. It is not easy but it is one of the most important thing to do.
3. Sleep
Get 6-8 hours of sleep everyday. Avoid TV, phone 2-3 hours before you sleep. Read a book, listen to music, be in a quiet dark room and relax your mind and body. Avoid exercise, talking to people or doing anything important at night.
4. Exercise
It has to be cardio, something that will make you sweat. Aerobics is a great choice as well.
5. Yoga
Primarily breathing exercise, that is one of the most important way to calm anxiety. Many different type of breathing exercise exist, so explore each and every one of them and do it in the morning every day, no excuse.
6. Meditation
Guided meditation every morning in a quiet place 15-45 minutes everyday. This will train your mind to focus on the present and not let your mind wander.
7, Nature
Hiking and walking in nature will arouse the happy hormone. So instead of watching some stupid TV shows, get up and take a hike.
8. Talking to people
Socializing is very important and talking to people will calm and supress your anxiety. Living alone and staying away from people is a bad combination for anxiety.
9. Music
Learn to play music or atleast spend time to listen to them everyday.
10. Paint
It has a soothing effect on your brain and keeps you grounded and focused on the present. Very good idea to pick up that habit
11. Pet
Dogs and cat will lower your stress and anxiety and make you happy. I have a dog and I love her, she makes me happy and I take care of her like a children, we have an amazing bond. I cannot fathom my life without my dog.
12. Gut health
Keep your stomach health clean. Your stomach is the 2nd brain and it controls your brain and most other parts of your body. Eat healthy. Stay away from spicy, oily, fatty and processed food. Cook, eat healthy. Eat more veges and fruits.
13. Social Media
Stay away from it, it is the newest poison fro people with anxiety and depression. 

If you do these everyday, then you will see the change in your life. I've had really bad many years ago. I am fine now because I do most of the above point everyday. You will NOT recover in a week or a month. But in few months, you will see the difference. But you have to stay active and keep doing them.
Good luck.

That was the best suggestion ever seen in Sajha.
Most of us know what to do, but we have no will to follow, if we follow we must be diligent and consistent ( a daily routine ).

all the suggestions given above, they might cure the symptoms and u might feel good for few days but eventually it will come back. only way to deal with it is go for the root cause and solve it. so be honest with ur self and ask urself the question, what is it that is bothering you so much. DEEP DOWN, IN UR SUBCONSCIOUS MIND. USUALLY IT HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH GUILT, SHAME, ANGER. and people find it hard to admit it at first. they are ashamed of it. so if possible, try to own up and solve the original problem. but its not possible for most cases, because those problems are usually old and lot of time have already passed. in those cases, its beneficial to take the help of a therapist. he will help u look at the problem from a different perspective. u will realize what ever happened, it was not ur fault at all. in fact, u had no choice but to act in the way u acted. any sensible person in ur shoes would have acted in the way u did. life is not fair and we all come from different places in life. so u r the last person to be blamed for whatever happened.
this new outlook in life will make life easier for u. and will solve ur problem forever. u can develop this outlook in life on your own through reading books, watching videos. but it will take a lot longer than if u visited a therapist.

If you need help and want to talk, please private message me. Don't listen to people who really have no clue and have never experienced it. Even an idiot knows he needs to go to doctor when he is not feeling well.

"Don't listen to people who really have no clue and have never experienced it. Even an idiot knows he needs to go to doctor when he is not feeling well."

I appreciate your input seriously for the guy who started this post, but I have to say that a lot of times, going to a doctor and taking medication also works out, and I have this experience in my life when I had to take medicines to overcome my nervousness and lack of confidence. This is especially because everybody is built differently and their immunity, ways to tackle difficulties and their past experiences vary in a lot many ways.

Besides that to everybody who has been posting to this thread still, I have a question for you all. This thread is like one year old and the guy 'frustratedme' is nowhere to be seen and heard and hasn't written anything in this thread for 11 months!!

I am wondering who are we advising here?? Hello!

I honestly hope that frustratedme is still alive and has passed his driving test and overcame his anxiety problems in these 11 months!!

People are too impatient to pitch in their ideas and what not but they should also check out when was this post created really!

@Bennedict, well the thread is not locked yet so what's the problem with replying. In fact you just replied twice to make your own point.

Having said that, I may have triggered you again but I apologize in advance and I promise this would be my last reply on this post (but you never say never)

I don't have anxiety. But I am going through a heartache. And at first I was sad, I wanted to cry, I was heartbroken, I felt betrayed. But it's been few days since I found out about this thing/ situation that has caused me this heartache. But I have decided to make peace with myself and my past. And also I have decided to erase this picture I had of my life. And decided to make a new one.

Also writing ones feelings out also eases the pain. You can literally write anything that you can't share with other people. And then just shred the paper. Also manifest for good things to happen in your life. I have also stopped worrying about little things that I have no control over. My only goal in life for now is to make sure that I am financially able so that I don't have to expect any financial help from anybody. I know that's going to make me look like I am all about money. But I take it as a distraction so that I don't worry about this thing that's causing me to be sad.

@wegal good advice and im sorry that you are going through this situation. Just wanted to say “ My only goal in life for now is to make sure that I am financially able so that I don't have to expect any financial help from anybody.” doesnt make you look like you are all about the money. Being Financially independent is awesome! And i think everyone should try for that. Once Making money was my only goal as i was struggling financially. After a while things got better and my life goal changed. :)

@ketofarar thankyou for your kind words. Yes hopefully when time heals my heartache, my life goals will be different. For now I want to be able to help that person who gave me a heartache. I want the best for that person. Is it weird that I worry about that person's future? Like I would definitely want to help that person if they were struggling financially in future? I hope this feeling of me wanting the best for them and worried for their future, their finances goes away as I heal from this heartache.

That person gave you a heartache and there you are still thinking about all the best things for him/ her. Wow! Now that is something! Usually heartaches and breakups do not end up in a nice way. As you might have seen they can be detrimental to cause enough harm mentally and physically both.

I would like to humbly ask you to move on and take this experience as a learning lesson, give some time for yourself and not mull over it, trying to justify and reason whatever that has transpired in your life. I hope you emerge as a winner who have survived this setback in life and handled it quite well.
Loads of regards from my side for your healing!

@Bennedict yes I am proud of myself for not wanting the worst for that person. I like the person that I have become. It will be a lesson for sure. I have wonderful memories of when that person was there for me emotionally. He helped me be a better person. Obviously at first I was super hurt and I felt like my whole world collapsed infront of me. I felt sick to my stomach. But I don't want to play blame game. I am taking it as universe making space for another person to come for me or other greater things to happen for me. But I am a human and sometimes I still feel sad at that person, his family or anything that made that person take that decision. But I think it's my love for him that is making me want the best for him. I am also taking it in a positive note that his decision is going to bring much more happiness to me. I asked for universe and God to take away any bitterness that I have for him and his family. I want to send out positivity so that I can get abundance of happiness back from the universe.
