3 Ways To Tell Your Anxiety To Chill Out And Take A Deep Breath

It's hard to deal with anxiety, but there are ways to make it a little easier.

3 Ways To Tell Your Anxiety To Chill Out And Take A Deep Breath

College can be SO stressful! If you're dealing with an anxiety disorder, you are never alone! According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA), 40 million adults have been diagnosed with an anxiety disorder. Anxiety is a sense of fear and a feeling of nervousness because of a specific situation or outcome. When you are feeling anxious, these are some ways to help you calm down!

1. Take a walk outside

Have you ever been in a situation that makes you want to run away and hide forever? One of the best ways to calm yourself down is to go for a walk. All your thoughts come together and add up until it's too much, and a simple, calm, and silent walk will help you focus more on your body than your mind. Taking time for yourself is very important. SELF LOVE IS KEY. Being with yourself, and only yourself, helps the mind think slower and thus help you feel more relaxed. While on your walk, think about all that is around you, and take it in. You'll see all the beautiful things to be happy about!

2. Put on your happiest playlist

Usually, when you're feeling out of place, all you want to do is listen to sad music. Do the opposite instead! Make a playlist with songs that make you want to get up and dance. Upbeat songs with positive lyrics will help you think of happy memories. You have to think of all the positives when you're feeling anxious, or it will take longer for you to relieve the stress you're feeling. Happy songs are also a serotonin booster! Think of music as your best friend. Music is there to comfort you and make you feel like your best self again.

3. Get those Zs in

Getting a good 6-8 hours of sleep can make a big change in how you feel. Lack of sleep has a negative effect on the body and mind. Your mood when you wake up will affect your mood for the rest of the day. Going to bed at a reasonable time will help you wake up feeling more energized and refreshed. Your mind will be at ease in the morning and that will help you stay calmer throughout the day. Go to bed early and wake up ready to accomplish anything that life throws at you!

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?

'The Addams Family 2' Film Review

The sequel to the 2019 reboot is an enjoyable, but unremarkable start to the Halloween movie season
