I know that sometimes, it can feel like you don’t have anxiety, you are absorbed by the sneaky bugger. Right now, I’m pleased that I’m managing my anxiety, but now and again, of course, I have my moments where I wonder if I’ll feel ok again. It’s on these days it is that little bit harder here are 7 things you can do.
Write a list of things you need to do
Only what you need to get done, don’e be consumed by something you need to get done tomorrow or next week. Break big tasks down and take it day by day.
Be kind to yourself
When I’m in an anxious state, I know most of the time that it’s not logical. That there are things I’m anxious about that I don’t need to be or I’ll beat myself up over small things. Know that you’re just having a bad day, it will pass.
Get some light in!
Natural sunlight is a great mood booster even five minutes can help you out so open those windows.
Make sure you have contact with positive people
It can be really hard, particularly if your anxiety means you want or need to be alone but make sure that you can contact people who make you feel comfortable.
Do something you enjoy
Read, watch a TV show you love, colour do something you enjoy that you’ll find relaxing.
Express how you feel!
Only you will know the best way to calm your anxious mind but don’t bottle it up. For some doing something creative will help unleash how you feel, for others making something or solving a problem. Whatever works, you do you!
What are your tips? Let me know in the comments below!

Great advice. I am a writer so I like to write to cope with Anxiety and Bipolar. I like to sit outside and get sunlight like you said. I like focusing on things I enjoy like sports and movies. Writing is my biggest coping technique. I go to 2 support groups a week each is 2hrs long that helps me.
