Be open to change- even though change sucks when you have anxiety you need to know that change is an inevitable part of life and that you can’t do anything without things changing. You just need to learn ways that help you cope with these changes. And honestly once you really accept that change is a way of life it really does help reduce you anxiety.
Accept your anxiety- your anxiety is there and I can tell you it’s not going anywhere. Sure at times you’ll feel much better and at times you’ll feel much worse but it will always be there to some degree lurking in the background. The good news is however that you can take back control and not let it control you. Do what makes you happy even if it does make you anxious at the same time.
Be prepared- From what I’ve been through with anxiety I’ve noticed that it tends to strike when you least expect it. I would definitely recommend being prepared especially if you know it’s going to be a stressful week. Make sure you know some relaxation techniques and also try to talk to someone who helps you calm down like a friend or family member.
Meditation/yoga- Meditation and yoga are really helpful when it comes to reducing anxiety in the long term. Although it takes a while before there is a noticeable decrease in your anxiety over time you’ll see a huge difference in the levels of anxiety you’re experiencing. You’ll be more calm and in control. If yoga isn’t your thing try some other form of physical exercise because it makes a huge difference for a lot of people with anxiety. I’ve also noticed that my mental health gets worse when my physical health suffers and I know a lot of people experience this so keeping your physical health at its best is definitely important for reducing anxiety.
Seek help- If you feel as though your anxiety is getting worse you should consult a professional. They will help you find ways to manage your anxiety in the best way possible that works for you and will give you advice on how to reduce it in the long term.
