  1. One way to help control anxious thoughts is to ask yourself this question, “Is thinking like this helping me or hurting me?” If the answer is “hurting me” then try to transform your negative thoughts into more positive thoughts and immediately change your activity.

  2. Help control your anxiety by exercising most days of the week – work your way up slowly, starting with as little as 10 minutes, three days a week. Walking is fine, you don’t have to engage in a heavy work out. Walking will increase your energy, increase your serotonin, and help with your blood pressure, weight, cholesterol and bones!

  3. Mild anxiety can be lessened by being organized:
    1. Set your alarm so you don’t oversleep.
    2. Get up 15 minutes earlier so you are not rushed.
    3. Prepare for the morning the night before.
    4. Set appointments ahead and keep a calendar to schedule effectively.
    5. Listen to the local radio station so you are aware of the weather and any traffic jams.
    6. Don’t rely on your memory…write it down – keep a notebook and/or phone with you so you can write down important notes/reminders.

  4. When you are feeling stressed and anxious distract yourself. Engage in activities that you find enjoyable and meaningful for you.
    Examples may include:
    Reading
    Journaling
    Drawing/Painting/Sculpting/Cartooning/Doodling
    Exercising
    Gardening or bird watching
    Baking/cooking
    Exploring nature
    Deep breathing (4-7-8 breath)
    Meditating
    Yoga
    Guided imagery
    Playing an instrument such as the guitar or piano
    Organizing a closet or cabinet
    Learn photography
    Call a friend or relative
    Watch a favorite movie or television show that holds your full attention
    Listen to music/sing
    Dance/move
    Word puzzles
    Learn something new (A new language, a period in history, the work of famous artists, etc.)
    Create a “What I am grateful for” list
    Recite and develop your own affirmations
    Write a short story, poem or screenplay

  5. Don’t allow your thoughts to control you. “You control you.” Remember the CBT triangle: Your thoughts—> your emotions—>Behavior. Your thinking is very powerful! How you choose to think is how you will feel in almost any given situation.

  6. What are you grateful for today? Instead of thinking about negative aspects of your life and what you don’t have, focus on what you are thankful for and what you do have. It is often the small things that count, e.g. a friend’s smile, family, delicious food, a beautiful sunset or sunrise, a baby playing, a day at the beach, your health, a home, helping others, etc.

  7. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was
    curious what all is needed to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty
    penny? I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% positive. Any tips
    or advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers
