Like a lot of people, I have anxiety. In my case, it's primarily social anxiety, with a little bit of generalised anxiety thrown in to spice things up.
My anxiety keeps me up at night, makes me question EVERYTHING, affects how I interact with people, and is generally a complete *insert terrible swearword*.
Over the years, I've developed a few small strategies and tricks to help me manage and even lessen my anxiety. In the interest of maybe helping fellow anxious people, I've put my best ones in a list below.
1.Find a time each day to completely switch off all your devices.
2.Bookmark videos and clips that soothe you.
4.Find a smell that relaxes you.
5.Embrace herbal tea.
7.Change your scenery.
9.Challenge negative thoughts.
10.Find a way to occupy your hands.
11.Spend time with animals.
12.Embrace your anxiety.
13.Don't let anyone who isn't your therapist tell you how you *should* be dealing with your anxiety.
