Too much anxiety

 

Re: Too much anxiety

@Matty D anxiety can be a cruel and annoying occurance hey! Many of us here have experiences with anxiety so I'll link some people who may have some ideas for you @ErinsAntics @scared01 @mrmusic @annabethxchase @litgym

 

RIght now I can't think of what usually helps me - my mind has gone blank, but have you looked at hte articles we have on RO about anxiety, getting help for anxietytips to help anxiety?

Re: Too much anxiety

hey @Matty D

i suffer from anxiety as well and it is definitely frustrating ! for some reason my anxiety hasn’t really been around lately but ill try and give you some advice.

my 1st tip is to BREATHE - very simple but does a lot ! maybe start off with talking about less anxiety prone topics to your parents so your anxiety isn’t as high. and then eventually push yourself to talk about more difficult topics ?

 

sorry i have also had a mind blank ! hopefully some of the others can give you some tips !

@Matty D I also just found this podcast on RO too a day in the life with social anxiety. I quite like it and find it's so relevant for me, maybe it's helpful too? Smiley Happy

Re: Too much anxiety

@Matty D absolutely breathing on it's own can feel like it's not enough at times.
For me I know when I'm highly anxious I like to take time alone to calm my whole body, so I breathe, I give myself time of no anxiety provoking things, so my phone goes on silent, I try to be alone where people can't find me and I tense each muscle one by one and then relax as I breathe out, and I work down until all my muscles are relaxed.
I've also tried short guided meditations when I'm really anxious too. Sometimes that helps me too.

I also see my psychologist and psychiatrist regularly which helps too.

(funny how my brain now has a response.. maybe I should have waited a few minutes before responding Smiley Tongue )

Re: Too much anxiety

@Matty D yeah i agree with you breathing can be real hard to just focus on and settle the anxiety. i suffer from panic attacks so i understand how much anxiety takes over. but i know avoiding situation makes the anxiety worse. also telling yourself everything will be okay and just i guess trying to keep everything under control - which i know is hard !
