    15 Daily Affirmations for Anxiety

    15 Daily Affirmations for Anxiety

    Anxiety is a burden and it can come out of nowhere. I suffer from anxiety and sometimes it can feel like your whole world is just crashing down and there is nothing you can do. Anxiety is scary but whenever I feel any type of anxiety coming on, I turn to these affirmations to get me through it. From my experience, the best way to calm down an anxiety attack is to ground yourself and affirmations are a great way to do that. Affirmations have a calming effect & can help you change any negative beliefs you may be having. They can also serve as a distraction. I pick 3 or more & continuously repeat them to myself until I start to calm down.

    What Living with Anxiety is Really Like

    What Living with Anxiety is Really Like

    This article doesn’t offer a scientific explanation of what anxiety is, nor does it go over the common physical symptoms, simply because the majority of people know that information already. What they may not know, is everything that goes through the mind of someone with anxiety on a daily basis and thus, this is meant to describe exactly what an anxious person is thinking in everyday situations, and the consequences of those thoughts. It’s important to know what is going on inside their mind to be able to better understand their emotions and actions. To the millions out there with these same experiences, you’re not alone!

    I Didn't Know I Was An Introvert Growing Up

    I Didn't Know I Was An Introvert Growing Up

    Thinking back, I really did have a wonderful childhood. My family was loving and supportive. I lived in a beautiful small town nestled in nature. I had a few close friendships throughout my school years. Despite all of these things, I struggled as a child and adolescent, even through my twenties.

    Top Ten Tips for Dealing With Anxiety

    Top Ten Tips for Dealing With Anxiety

    1. Exercise: this might seem odd, but physically exerting yourself can relieve mental stress. Exercise lowers cortisol (your body’s stress hormone). Try to find an exercise routine that makes you happy – yoga, running, kickboxing. It needs to be something that makes you happy or you won’t do it, right?

    Anxiety And Depression

    Anxiety And Depression

    Okay, I have depression and anxiety because I'm a bipolar 1, so that comes with. My medical record even mentions major depressive disorder. Furthermore, my medical record mentions my "anxiety state," which means that I'm anxious all the time, every day. Although I do not get as many symptoms as I used to because of my heavy-duty antipsychotic medication such as Geodon, 140 mg, Buspar 20 mg, (four a day), Lamictal 25 mg, and Eschitalopram for my OCD. I have OCD, and CPTSD in addition to anxiety. I need more information about major depressive disorder. The thing is, I had a smidgen of diagnosis before I was diagnosed schizoaffective by a proper psychiatrist.

    LIfes not a dream sweetheart

    My mental health is bad at present, mainly a pile up of too many things at once. I know "join the club" , this is just my version of my present reality. One aspect I want to touch on is a part I don't really understand, dreams. These seem first of all to be worse when I am bad , strangely they also seem to be more vivid and memorable.

    Eternally Avoiding

    Eternally Avoiding

    My life has turned into avoiding parties or triggers while still maintaining a job and remembering to take care of myself. I work so that I have money like everyone else but within any job I've had there are always stress response triggers, but I'm currently in a minefield of emotions and triggers since I work most closely with other women... Which I feel bad for avoiding the parties or talking to people because I would love to have a social life aside from work again.

    Dealing with Anxiety

    Nothing is worse than having anxiety. Especially when you are someone capable of many things, someone who has the ability to do anything you put your mind to, someone who has the gift to work hard and dream big.

    Hello, I have Anxiety.

    Have you ever had that one friend who is always negative towards you. Not sure, whether its to help you or hurt you. Always breathing down your neck, telling everything wrong in your life, or magnifying the minor from the simplest thing.
