Listen to a happy song. Go for a walk. Do some intense cardio for the endorphin happiness. Those are my fixes. Oh, and I always read positive quotes to make myself feel better 🙂

Xanax. And music (usually country). For some reason, cranking up music and belting it out helps me.

If you’re constantly worried about what other people are thinking/saying, that isn’t anxiety (though it’s causing some anxiety). If you have the opportunity to go to therapy, I think it would be beneficial for you.

I have general anxiety disorder (but really who doesn’t these days… ha!) I have emergency xanax in case of a full blown panic attack but never take them.

 

The only things that help me with my anxiety are:

Exercise – Every day! It helps keep the constant low grade anxiety away. It also helps in the moment if you are feeling stressed… it burns off all the adrenaline.

Chamomile Tea- A cup or two of that and my worries melt away.

 

Above all just keep reminding yourself that everyone makes mistakes. No one is perfect, so don’t beat yourself up if you think you’ve made a mistake. People forget, and probably aren’t thinking anything bad about you at all. *Hugs* Just breathe!

If I am at home, I smoke it if I got it. WAY less toxic that prescription drugs!

I write. A LOT. As mentioned before, music usually helps too.

Dancing. And I’m not really coordinated but turning up some fun music and letting it go tends to help. Xanax also does wonders but I haven’t used it for a year now.

@theone99:  Sounds like the truck breaking down would’ve happened regardless, it just happened to happen when he was moving items for friends… maybe its better this way than if he had been moving something for a paying customer who could’ve been serioulsy mad?

Don’t know if you’re religious, but praying helps me alot. Meditation is also a great way to clear your head.

I work out like a fiend when my anxiety levels are high. I also have a prescription for ativan and I’m not afraid to use it! Bottle of wine will do it, too.

Music, long walk alone, read or shop (this can be extrememly dangerous! haha). I’m on Xanax as well, which helps slightly.

Whenever I feel a little overwhelmed, and like life has just dumped a little too much trash on my yard, I remind myself that I have all the time I need, that no one’s really watching anyway and that now is the perfect time to take myself out for a massage.
