It's #NationalStressAwarenessDay - I can suffer from stress from time to time, but when I do I REALLY suffer from it! It all or nothing! So I thought I would help raise awareness on this day on what it is like living with stress and anxiety and also share a few of my tips on how to cope.
When you feel stressed it can feel like you're fighting yourself. Try not dwell or overthink things. Worrying just makes your mind more and more tired, more and more detached from everything around you.
Step outside and take a walk, go for a bike ride or a swim.Try meditation, or write a list, talk to friends or family, do not fight to feel better. Do not worry and obsess about how you feel. You need to give your body the break it so craves.
For someone living with #anxiety and #stress, the voice, or self-talk, can be overbearing. Find a hobby you love, an activity, anything you can get lost in. When you’re lost in a positive way like this, anxiety’s voice can’t find you.
Anxiety likes to have a voice. It means it’s heard (by us) and it has power (over us). Good thing that voice can be silenced.
