How to deal with it…

So I have suffered with anxiety for as long as I can remember. Anxiety has almost been a protection to stop me from getting hurt but now it’s turned into something that is starting to take a toll on my day to day life. So I have had to come up with ways to help deal with the anxiety:

  1. Wake up in the morning with a routine, I have a glass of water, I brush my teeth, shower, get dressed and head off to work. It may not seem to like a lot but to me it works to help me deal with the stress of forgetting something.
  2. Guided meditation.. with anxiety it can be very difficult to stop and focus on anything other than the way you are feeling. So I use guided meditation to focus my mind. A great App that I use is called Headspace. Headspace has a selection of great guided meditations to follow for anything from break ups to happiness.
  3. Breathe deeply!.. I can not stress enough now much this really can help to soothe your soul.
  4. Grounding. Search grounding this is a really amazing way of distracting the mind.
  5. See a doctor. The doctors may be able to give you medication to help you deal with the anxiety but also can refer you to therapy to help deal with your mental health.

I hope some of these techniques work for you! Leave a comment and let me know how you get on with them xxxx
