I'll show you attention bias online test with which you can improve your health by lowering your stress and anxiety. The idea is you reduce your unconscious negative bias by training yourself to seek out the positive. Do this test at least 3 times a week over a 6 to 8 week period. At the end of period, you can take the attention bias test again to see whether there has been any change. The majority of people who have been studied showed a significant reduction in their negative bias. It looks incredibly simple but there is evidence it will combat anxiety, though not depression. There is evidence that Cognitive Bias Modification can shift negative biases in a more positive direction and the theory is that this should ultimately be helpful in overcoming negative thinking patterns which impact on your health and well being. However, if you suffer from severe anxiety or depression you should seek professional help from a clinical psychologist.

A new report, which was based on insurance claims filed by 41 million privately insured Blue Cross Blue Shield members, calls depression the "second most impactful condition on overall health for commercially insured Americans," behind only high blood pressure, says: depression has spiked by 33% in the last five years.

Just one hour of exercise a week may help prevent depression. Researchers studied thousands of healthy adults without symptoms of anxiety or depression for 11 years. At the start, about 12% said they didn't exercise and the rest said they exercised anywhere from "up to 30 minutes" to "more than 4 hours" a week. Over the next decade, about 7% of people in the study developed depression. People who said they didn't exercise at the study's start were 44% more likely to become depressed compared to those who exercised at least 1 to 2 hours a week.

That exercise doesn't have to be intense, either. People seemed to have mental health benefits regardless of whether they exhausted themselves or not. Researchers recommend exercise to be used in addition to the usual treatments like counseling.
