5 Ways to Manage Your Anxiety

1.Self-Care

Taking care of yourself is one of the most important skills that can help with managing your anxiety. This means making time for yourself. Even if it’s just to take a mid day nap, meditating, listening to music, or simply taking a time out and stepping out can help clear your head and decrease your anxiety.

2.Breathing

Practice deep breathing exercises to help slow down your anxious thoughts

3.Journaling

Learn what triggers your anxiety. Is it work, family, school, or something else you can identify? Write in a journal when you’re feeling stressed or anxious, and look for a pattern. Writing down your anxious thoughts and getting them out of your mind and onto paper can reduce anxiety

4. Exercise

Physical activity can help reduce stress and anxiety. Try heading out for walk or even jog whenever you start feeling anxious.

5. Diet

Do not skip any meals. Remain hydrated and limit your alcohol and caffeine, which can aggravate and trigger panic attacks, and keep healthful, energy-boosting snacks on hand.
