You need to accept yourself for who you are. If you are an anxious person you should know that it is okay to be this way and that you are not alone.
2. Speak up
Is somebody constantly hurting you or treating you in a way that you aren't fond of? If you feel this way, chances are that holding things in won't make you feel better. It can hurt you instead.
3. Question your thoughts
Sometimes your mind "plays" with you, when this happens ask your self "is this really true or does it just seem this way?" "Is this likely to happen?" or "is this worry realistic?". a lot of times we feel afraid to do things but once we do them we then realize that it wasn't as scary as we thought it would be.
4. Be Positive With Yourself
Always remind yourself that you have value and that you are amazing just the way you are. Don't think things such as "the world would be better with out me" or "I'm so hideous no one will ever like me" because you are just hurting yourself and those things are certainly not true.
5. Keep your mind occupied
Join groups/ clubs that interest you or focus on hobbies that you are passionate about.
Exercise is said to be as effective as medicine for anxiety.Therefore, not only is exercise excellent for your physical health but also for your emotional health.
7. Intervene with yourself
Walk away from those things that increase your anxiety like for example if you obsess over things and constantly check back and forth, you have to be strong and refrain (walk away) from doing this.
8. Try Aroma-Therapy
Lavender,eucalyptus jasmine, sweet basil, bergamot, chamomile, and rose scents/oils are great examples.
9. Avoid These Things
Avoid smoking, alcohol, and even caffeine (this increases your heart rate drastically and this can contribute to higher anxiety levels.)
10. Spending Time With Your Pet
In a survey of pet owners 74% of pet owners reported mental health improvements. Pets can help to alleviate stress, anxiety, depression, and they help you to not feel so alone anymore.
11. "Make Friends With Your Fears"
When it comes to anxiety, there is a saying that fear is your friend. You have to try to understand/ recognize where your fear is coming from and when you do you have to face it because anxiety can not be ignored.
