Learning To Cope With Anxiety

The topic of mental health is one that many are afraid to approach for fear of being judged or misunderstood. Anxiety is just one of those mental health issues that can cause one to feel a vast range of emotions. Believe it or not there are a few things you can do to help manage these moments.

Talk to someone

This is probably the most challenging one. When it comes to having anxiety talking about what's causing your anxiousness can be challenging, but the benefits are worth it. Whoever you have in your support system to talk too, give them a call or shoot them a text. Let them know that you need someone to talk too.

Watch a movie

Whenever I am feeling anxious I tend to turn on something that makes me really happy. Find one of your favorite television shows or movies and rewatch it. This will take your mind of our reality for a bit, and into the world of your favorite story. It could also provide a good laugh which is always a joy.

Limit Alcohol

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait.
