Usually for such breakthrough spells of anxiety and depression benzodiazepines are used

But if you are not planning to take any such medicine then there are certain natural ways to reduce this

Meeting people can help in such situtaion so that you interact socially and thus forget your problem

Yoga have a very positive effect on mental health

Thirdly having deep breathing also help if you do it in intervals

Warm water bath helps too

Having sex can also reduce the anxiety

Other than that you can look for Cannabidiol oil

So these are few ways to reduce the anxiety and depression
