Hi lovelies. Today’s post is another Anxiety Tips That Work For Me Post, is in collaboration with the clothing company Wear Your Belief. I’m so excited to be bringing you guys this post. as you all know, Anxiety is some I deal with day to day.
As you guys know I’m a huge believer in sharing my anxiety and the tips that work for me. Like people, anxiety comes is all shapes and forms. What works for me might not work for you, but everything is worth trying right. Don’t feel disheartened if my tips don’t work for you, just remember that my anxiety is probably very different to yours. There is no one size fits all. Try everything and anything and eventually you’ll find what works for you.
Get Out and About
Exercise is obviously one of the most beneficial for the body and mind, but I feel that the view of exercise has become distorted. If you are not doing loads of classes and spend hours a day in the gym you will achieve nothing. Personally, I disagree, walking; just getting out in the air is what works best for me. No pressure to do much just get out and walk.
It can be in your local area, you can get a bus and go somewhere with a view. You can walk to a destination or go free style. You could join a walking group or go it alone. As long and you get out and about you’ll feel the benefits.
Journaling in general is something that I’d highly recommend to everyone. Putting pen to paper can be life changing!
Gratitude journaling is a great way to start. It can be bit less time consuming and easier to fit into day to day life (do set out a time though, make it a habit) . It’s simple, concise, which means you have to dig a little bit deeper. Check out THIS post for some great tips before you get started.
For me this usually involves alone time. Candles on, room made cosy, a cup of camomile tea, a good book or doing my nails! Theres nothing better. I like reading lifestyle / self help book about happiness or hygge just incase you are wondering. Again this is such a personal thing, you might like to watch Netflix or any movie, or play a video game. It’s all about trying things out and seeing what works for you.
Jumper seems to be out of stock. If your super keen on it I’d email the guys HERE and mention this post!
Talk To A Professional
I can’t recommend this enough. I have always been very open about the fact that counselling is a big part of how I cope with my anxiety. I’m often asked, is it worth it? Did you find it helpful? How often do you do it? The answer, YES for me, it’s 100% worth it, but be ready to uncover things you might not want to revisit. I find it easier to speak to a professional. It’s someone impartial, who has no preconceptions, no judgement, and no motive. The timeframe really depends on the individual. I’ll leave a link to the my counsellor HERE in Jersey CI and one I used to see in Dublin HERE.
Do you suffer from anxiety? What works for you? Why not share below, what works for you might help another. I think I’ll be doing a bit more to do with Anxiety so if you have any questions or info please do contact me! I’m keen to help “Stomp Out The Stigma”. Here’s a few more link to other anxiety post, 5 Things I Do To Help With My Anxiety, and How I Battle My Travel Anxiety.
Till next week my lovelies.
