TIPS & TRICKS
Follow the 3-3-3 Rule.
Look around you and name three things you see. Then, name three sounds you hear. Finally, move three parts of your body — your fingers, eyes, or wiggle your legs. Whenever you feel your brain spinning or going way too fast, this mental trick can help center your mind and bring you back to the present moment.
Stand up, move your body, clap your hands. Do something that interrupts your train of thought and helps you regain a sense of control.
Stand up Straight
Stand up. Pull your shoulders back. Plant your feet evenly and widely apart. Open up your chest. Breathe deeply.
This posture – combined with deep breathing, helps your body remember that it’s not in danger right now and that it is in control. Gaining control reduces the feeling of helplessness.
Breathe In and Out
Deep breathing helps you calm down. Just focus on evenly inhaling and exhaling. This will help slow down and re-center your mind.
Accept that you’re Anxious
Remember that anxiety is just a feeling. By reminding yourself that anxiety is simply an emotional reaction, you can start to accept it.
Acceptance is critical because trying to wrangle or eliminate anxiety often worsens it. It just perpetuates the idea that your anxiety is intolerable.
Accepting your anxiety doesn’t mean liking it or resigning yourself to a miserable existence.
It just means you would benefit by accepting reality as it is — and in that moment, reality includes anxiety. The bottom line is that the feeling of anxiety is less than ideal, but it is not intolerable.
Focus on right now
When people are anxious, they are usually obsessing about something that might occur in the future. Take a pause, breathe and pay attention to what’s happening right now.
Sometimes all that you can see is the forest. Focus on one tree.
Positive Self Talk
Anxiety can produce a lot of negative chatter. That can then snowball into more negativity and heightened anxiety. Create positive coping statements. What this is doing is recognizing the anxiety and how it feels and then reminding yourself that you have been here before and that you have ways to get through this.
Find a mantra
Try to develop a mantra that you can say or hum when feeling anxious. (This can be verbalized or you can just say it to yourself)
For some people this might be just on word. It might be a sentence. It might be a yoga or meditation chant.
