How I Deal With My Anxiety

Anxiety. A negative additional to your day but at times helpful and good to have. Though some days are worse, I have found several things to do to help with my anxiety.

Read.

Through dealing with my generalized anxiety disorder for the past year I have come to realize that reading is my main coping mechanism. This allows me to escape the world for a while and allow my heart/ mind to be at ease. I enjoy reading – whether  that be books, magazines, news articles or simply just blog posts. Reading is fun.

Netflix.

I have found that at my lowest and darkest moments Netflix is very helpful. I enjoy watching light and feel good shows. This allows me to get my mind of worrying and just relax. Some shows that I love watching are : Unbreakble Kimmy Schimdt, Gilmore Girls and Friends.

Talk to Someone.

I am typically the type of person to keep to myself when I have an issue. Recently I discovered that opening up allows me to reduce my anxiety. Talking to someone you trust- whether that be a friend, family member or even a teacher. Open up and you will feel instant ease and relief.

    I always keep a pair of earbuds with me because if I start to feel anxious I put on so music and that helps!
