    Breathing exercises has helped me in the past and journalling is my constant. I really enjoy dark chocolate when my mood is low or any day really. I also enjoy doing yoga several times a week to focus my mind and body.
    Awesome tips, I love the list ideas and writing solutions to the problems. It gives you so much perspective. Thanks for sharing.

        You are welcome, Shelly! I hope you’ll have a moment to drop by my blog and let me know what you think of some of the High School inter-disciplinary lessons I’ve set up (or of my Babylon 5 re-watch posts, if you are a Science Fiction fan)! 🙂
        Take care and stay safe,
        -Shira

    Breathing is a big help. Sometimes I have to just stop and breathe while simultaneously asking God for help.
    That’s the other thing. I rely on Bible verses and prayer.

    I ignored the breathe reminder on my app until I finally turned it off. LOL! I’m terrible, and I definitely need to start implementing that into my life. I can worry at times, but I wouldn’t consider myself to have anxiety. Because the words are interchangeable, I just thing I’ve always coped with it. Nonetheless, I do believe these tips can be useful for me as well. Thanks for sharing!

    I stopped drinking anything with caffeine like three years ago and it was one of the best decisions ever. This is a really great list and as someone with anxiety I have found everything you mentioned super helpful! I will add that apart from breathing exercises yoga and meditation can be very beneficial too- especially meditation because it allows you to clear your mind and focus on what is making you anxious.

        I usually just have smoothies with chia seeds (chia seeds are great for energy) and sometimes I have tea which has a bit of caffeine but not so much that it’ll make me anxious all day. Coffee is the one thing I always avoid!

    Its going to sound weird, but when I get anxious and feel it starting to happen I always try to distract myself from it. I read in a book once that its actually the anxious feeling that alot of us dont like and its true. The book told you to sit and feel the anxious feeling when it arrives. I do this now, and it feels uncomfortable for a while but then once it passes I find it doesnt return. Its helped me so much on my anxious days!

    Great suggestions-especially the idea of a pep talk. Personally when I am feeling anxious I try to keep myself busy by doing simple tasks that require mild concentration to distract myself from the negative thoughts! More often than not, this works.
