Do you have any workout DVDs you can do at home? I always feel way more calm after going to pilates or Zumba, and if you can do it without leaving the house, even better!

What’s helped me (and mind you, sometimes i can do ALL of these and I’m still anxious):

-counseling. Sometimes I spend the whole session venting. It helps, and also helps me learn to deal

-meditate (counselor taught me!)

-do something that totally is unrelated to what is making me anxious (read a magazine, go shopping online, etc)

-take a bath (I have a bit of a Lush obsession!)

-play with my dog (he always makes me smile!)

-cuddle with my partner in bed (this is also the best way to calm him down when he freaks out – he has really bad anxiety)

-Xanax (while I don’t like to rely on it for myself, it does work and I keep a px for it for a reason!)

-go on Weddingbee 🙂

-call my mommy

I take a long hot shower, and I like to clean. Fiance can tell if I need a hug because he’ll come home to find me scrubbing the underside of the stove.

I also like to write or draw. Or rearrange furniture. Anything that doesn’t require much thought, and doesn’t have huge consequences. I used to bake, but anxiety makes me eat, so to prevent rapid obesity onset I don’t bake much any more.

The ladies all have wonderful suggestions.  As far as working out, could you go right after work?  That way you won’t have to worry about going back out when you get home.  🙂

I am on medication for anxiety but if I am feeling anxious I have my Fiance lay on top of me. For some wierd reason the pressure from him REALLY helps!!!

I think meditating helps. It’s amazing what a little bit of quiet and focusing on your breathing can do!

@red_rose: Ditto haha.

@RoyalLime: Yep, I have medication too.

I also got “It’s Always Sunny in Philly” on DVD for Christmas, so I’ve been watching that and laughing a lot. I think that’s helpful. And I also volunteer, which makes me feel good about myself!
