So I mentioned in my last post that I’d be posting anxiety management techniques. Aaaaand here it is. Also, I know I’m digressing, but at the moment I’m trying to figure out a suitable theme for my blog, so don’t feel alarmed if the layout keeps changing. Let’s dive right in!
Yoga- I mean, come on. I’m sure you’ve heard of this one before. There are a lot of online yoga lessons, which teach you the correct ways to do several yoga postures. When doing yoga, I feel super relaxed, like I don’t have any care in the world. Also, when doing yoga, I have something I really need to concentrate on, so it takes my mind off a lot of things.
Meditation- Meditation ties really closely with yoga. There are several guided meditation tutorials on YouTube, so I suggest you go check them out. Meditation also requires no physical stamina/flexibility, as all you’ve got to do is sit down. It’s all in the mind, as they say.
Gratefulness Exercise – I know it sounds kind of cheesy, but really, saying what you are grateful and happy for makes you a MUCH happier person. I mean, let’s face it. There are a lot of people out there who don’t have how much we do, so we should be very thankful. (Gosh, I sound like my mum!)
Quality Time With Family- I kind of get that when you are feeling anxious about something, you don’t really want to talk to anyone. But, actually, spending time with people you love actually de-stresses you, lowering anxiety levels.
Talking To A Professional- Look, guys. When anxiety sometimes gets unbearable, the best thing to do would be to go talk to a professional. They’ll help you and they won’t judge you. Because really, there is nothing to judge. Humans experience feelings, and anxiety is one of them.
Thank you so much for reading my posts, and I hope this one helped. I have so many other techniques, so make sure you comment if you want a part 2. Please, please comment. (Not to sound desperate, Lol!) I hope you guys all stay safe. See you in my next post!! Anna xx
