So what causes anxiety? Well, it’s hard to reduce it to a single factor. Generally speaking, anxiety is caused by a combination of factors.

However, it’s safe to say that today’s stressful lifestyle and social pressure do play a significant role when it comes to making us feel anxious.

So how do we fix it? Ideally, we should lead a balanced life and try to find inner peace. But in a world overrun with stress, that’s easier said than done.

The good news is there are objects we can use to keep the anxiety level under control. The Himalayan salt lamp is thought to help balance the energies that surround us by emitting boundless amounts of negative ions.

In addition to this, the negative ions negate the radioactive waves emitted by all the electrical devices that surround us. This helps clear the air in the space you live in.
