Let your thoughts flow when your anxiety kicks up.
Let them flow, but don’t let them consume you. Take your time with them, fish through them, imagine they were crumbled bits of paper, pick them out of the water one by one and straighten them out. Place them on the grass in front of you and watch them dry.
Then, when you’re ready, when you’ve acknowledged each thought, independently and on it’s own. Rationalise them.
Feeling VS fact.
Argue against yourself, compassionately.
Console with yourself and your thoughts as you would a friend.
Find evidence to argue against what you’re thinking.
If there is evidence for what you’re thinking. Find the best out of bad situations that you cannot avoid.
A plan of action. A positive attitude. If you can walk away from something that brings you down, do so – it’s easier than you think.
Try not to ignore what you’re feeling. Try to tackle it, straight on.
Anxiety is a key part of our survival, but sometimes anxiety can cripple us and prevent us from living. Find a balance between helpful and damaging worrying. When anxiety becomes too much it can make us ill, cause us to avoid everyday life and trigger issues in current existing relationships. This occurs when we allow anxiety to consume us. We do not need to do this, this is our mind, our thoughts, our triggers which we can maintain, rationalise and balance.
Attitude is everything.
