It’s only human to be anxious, but you don’t have to go through this alone.
We got you with an article on seven ways you can reduce or cope with anxiety below and we also have a blog post for you on eleven ways you can brighten your day, here.
1. Shout it out.
As a kid you were probably taught not to scream and shout and to rather use your inside voice, but we are here to tell you otherwise.
Screaming at the top of your lungs is a means to cope with anxiety.
Well you can do this as a healthy release of energy in a controlled, hopefully far from everyone. The last thing you want to do is to strike fear in someone. Sometimes fighting anxiety and your rage is not the way and you should totally embrace it.
2. Live in the moment.
Are you stressed right now? Cause we all are, maybe you’re stressed about the water bill or maybe next week’s test or a work assignment.
What ever it is it’s a sign you’re not living in the present. It can also be easy to live in the past saying “I could have”, “I should have” or “I would have”, but none of them help.
You can’t control the future and you can’t borrow a time machine and go change the past so maybe consider living your only life, your precious life one day at a time. It’s a pretty common problem to fall into as someone with an anxiety disorder.
3. Have a bedtime.
Workaholics often brag about only needing three or four hours of sleep per night if that’s you need to know that despite it all you’re not a robot even though you may be more determined than everyone else.
We all need enough sleep each night for our bodies to function the way they should.
Whether you actually deal with insomnia or you’re a self professed night owl low hours of sleep lead you likely to anxiety. You can start by only designating your bed only for sleeping so no more texting in bed or even worse sitting on or eating dinner in bed.
4. Feel okay saying no.
Sometimes you can take on more than you can handle and this can overwhelm.
You have to look with in and at yourself maybe you’ll discover that you allow yourself to be a rug for everyone else’s problems. There’s more happiness in giving than receiving, but if you always give there will be nothing left to give or take.
This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t help others ,but you should have boundaries and know your limits.
Maybe you don’t need to respond to every text message you get immediately.
5. Go to CBT.
CBT short for Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a means for people to learn different ways of treating and dealing with anxiety.
Therapists can be great as they’re a listening ear to all your life’s traumas and we mean all and every. After doing some listening they’ll teach you different coping mechanisms and they honestly just helping you build resilience.
6. Listen to ASMR.
Give ASMR a listen.
This goodness is guaranteed to have you feeling good in no time. The sensation is linked to neuroticism and is known to ward off anxiety and depression in those with the disorder.
Though the feel good was only named in 2010 it has since become popular as it’s also used to sleep easier.
