Almost all of us experience feelings of anxiety from time to time, but for some it is something they experience on a daily basis. Whether you have a social phobia, suffer from panic/anxiety attacks, or you simply feel overwhelmed – anxiety can have a significant impact on well-being.
If you suffer from anxiety, you might find the following practical tips useful:
Watch out for your triggers
Understanding what your personal anxiety triggers are means you can plan ahead. If you know you are likely to come up against your anxiety triggers, try to plan some activities to help you cope, such as periods of exercise or meditation.
Talk to someone you trust
Internalising your fears and anxieties will only make things worse. If you don’t feel you can talk to a friend or family member, consider speaking to a professional such as a counsellor or hypnotherapist.
