I'll say this, anxiety is a bi*ch. Most of us don't know how to deal with it. Me, included. But with time I have discovered some tips to help me with it.

☀ UNDERSTAND YOUR TRIGGERS

Whenever you're feeling anxious, take a minute and think what is causing it. For myself, I have social anxiety. Not all the time, but in several situations.

So if you understand what triggers your anxiety, you can slowly learn how to deal with it or avoid it.

☀ WRITE IT DOWN

This has been very hepful for me. If you don't want to talk about it with anyone, then just write it out on a piece of paper. I personally, write in my journal. I have written few pages, whenever I was feeling anxious. And it's interesting to look back, how I was feeling in the moment.

This may also help to understand it more. Plus, I promise you'll feel much better, when you let it out.

☀ DISTRACT YOURSELF

Sometimes an escape is needed. To get my mind of things and negative thoughts, I usually just try to do something that I enjoy. I listen to my favourite songs, watch a movie.

Here are some things you can do :
- Read a book
- Paint or draw
- Exercise
- Bake
-Go for a walk

☀ FAMILY AND FRIENDS ARE EVERYTHING

I've realised that I feel so much better when I spend time with my family or friends. They always can cheer me up. And it make me realise how grateful I am.

You don't have to talk with them about what's making you anxious. Just spend time with them. Talk about life, relationships, what make you happy.
And spending time with friends is also very benificial. I always am smiling afterwards.

☀ JUST BREATH

Honestly, it may sometime feel like it's the end of the world, or everything's so bad in your life. But it's not. Just remember to breath. Everything is going to be ok. Everything will pass.

Your anxiety doesn't define you. You can overcome it. It just takes time.

And remember you're not alone.
