I don’t know how many of you have anxiety, but I have it very badly. I also have panic disorder which is a whole other ball of wax.
With my anxiety, I have found it to be very helpful to create a soothing place in my house. Maybe it is a combination of your favorite tv show, blanket, and dog- like me. Maybe you really love taking a nice bath, whatever it is, when your anxiety starts to flare up… it is okay to take a time out and go to that safe place.
When I feel overwhelmed, I tell my family I am taking my time out. 20 minutes of just being alone and calming myself down, without the social pressure of other people around me has helped a lot.
Try it out sometime,
