Anxiety Coping Strategies
We constantly think. Scary thoughts may lead to anxiety feelings and behaviors. Try these simple strategies to manage anxiety:
Talk to a friend or a family members, tell them how you feel. They may reassure you or give you a valuable advice.
Go for a walk. Going for a walk can be very therapeutic. It can manage stress, anxiety and improve your sleep.
Write a journal. Writing a journal about your thoughts and feelings can be therapeutic. Once you have written in the journal, try to read it back. Sometimes this will help reflect on what you wrote and help you understand that the problem is not as significant as you initially thought.
Talk to a professional. If anxiety is overwhelming you, you should seek help from a qualified professional such as a counselor, psychotherapist or psychologist. Your family doctor can also help you with advice and medication.
