Here are 6 great tips to use and seek counselling with PCCS Mediators & Counsellors:
Anxiety Tip #1
Separate yourself from things that cause you anxiety for a few hours every day. If you find that thinking about something too often is making you anxious, go on a walk or somewhere you like for a while. Thinking about something too much can just make it worse, so keep your mind occupied.
Anxiety Tip #2
Control your thoughts to help yourself deal with anxiety better. Many times anxiety is caused by thoughts you have in your head. Negative thoughts can overwhelm you and cause anxiety. Once you learn how to control what you are thinking about, you can deal with anxiety better and possibly get rid of it.
Anxiety Tip #3
Start your day with positive thinking. When you wake up in the morning, make sure you start with positive thoughts. Reassure yourself of the positive things about yourself, and your life. This will help you get a good start to the day, and will eliminate anxiety later on through the day.
Anxiety Tip #4
Anxiety is damaging to your health and your regular health routine should always include ways to reduce your daily dose of anxious feelings. Set aside a few minutes each day that can be used to take care of your own well-being. The focus of this time should be doing something that gives you joy.
Anxiety Tip #5
Staying active with exercise of some kind will help to burn off energy that your body would put to use to feed your anxiety. Get out for a walk, take a swim or take up aerobics or yoga for positive physical activity. Anything that will feel good as you do it and burn energy is going to help alleviate your anxiety.
Anxiety Tip #6
If anxiety interferes with your daily functioning, get professional help. Nobody should have to suffer silently through the fear, or be forced to live a limited life due to anxiety. Doing nothing is condemning yourself to a miserable existence.
It is certainly true that anxiety is a condition with the power to negatively impact the lives of those it affects. A great way to handle the condition and regain control is to acquire as much information as possible about anxiety. Apply the advice in this article liberally, and you quite likely will notice a difference.
