Anxiety is a horrible mental health disorder that affects 1 in 13 people worldwide. It is something that can be overwhelming and comes in different forms, however, as a sufferer myself, I can promise you that it is manageable.
Within this article, I would like to offer you solutions, some of which I have found helpful and others of which experts recommend.
The things that have helped me overcome anxiety the most are;
- Having a hot bath
- Listening to music
Experts would recommend;
- Talking to someone, whether it be a professional or just someone you trust
- Keeping a diary
- Breathing exercise
- Looking after your physical health
I have personally suffered from anxiety for many years, and although it can be scary, it is also manageable. My biggest advice to anyone going through this would be to not feel overwhelmed because it can easily be controlled. If you follow the above steps, I’m sure you’ll notice a difference.
However, anxiety is a serious thing and is often paired with depression, so communication is key. If you feel like you are suffering then please talk to someone, whether it be a friend, family member or professional. I can assure you that this will help.
If you would like anymore advice on this then take a look at Mind’s website for the symptoms and also lots of information. They are a charity working hard to make sure that everyone gets the mental health treatment they deserve. Also, don’t hesitate to show both this article and the charity to anyone you know who is suffering with anxiety.
Good luck, and stay strong.
