Here is a round-up of my top 5 tips most helpful for you and your battle against Anxiety!
2. Mindfulness: This is a post I wrote a while back on my 3-2-1 approach to fighting off anxiety.
3. Change Your Thoughts: I teach teens and children this technique. Our thoughts are what drive our feelings. Our feelings drive our behavior/reaction, and the circle continues. Instead of thinking “this is going to be a horrible day”, change your thought to a positive one! You could change it to “OK-this is a new day, and I’m going to make it a good one.”—“That was a bad dream, but it wasn’t real.”—“1 bad thing is not going to ruin my whole day!” See how I did that? More on this later…
2. Apps! Click here to find apps that you can use as tools while you are working through your anxiety and depression. (Note: These are not to replace therapy, if needed, but to aide you in your ability to overcome your struggles.)
5. Talk it out. This may be with a friend or a therapist. Having meaningful connections can ease so many issues we struggle with. You need someone in your life who gets you and who accepts you. If you have no support, let me help you find it.
Don’t fight this alone! I am here to help.
