Monday Madness - Anxiety

Lately my anxiety levels have been at an all-time high. I just get this overwhelming feeling of panic and the need to escape wherever I am. I wish I could explain it better to those around me when it happens for so few people actually understand what is happening to me. Then I just feel guilty and the anxiety worsens. Here's some tips to use when you are feeling anxiety, some things I try and remember for myself.

1. get some exercise

2. talk to someone

3. start a gratitude journal to become aware of all the good around you

4. take action do something to confront a fear

5. journal or art journal

6. get quality sleep

7. stay away from alcohol, caffeine, tobacco and other substances

8. take time to relax focus on something peaceful


10. be mindful of your thoughts, your needs, your surroundings

Did I miss this last week ?Shocking neglect - I apologize. I suffer panic and anxiety re enclosed spaces, travel, social gatherings. I also suffer waves of exhaustion in prolonged stressful situations such as these, so even if I get through the situation, I'm knackered afterwards.

For travelling, particularlly on a plane or Tube stations in LOndon, I take a tool box - A few things I know will get me through it. Tkae a look.

Great to see you linked up. Happy easter. Shah. X
