Do a Mental Walk-Away
Sometimes mentally backing off from the very thing that is causing the anxiety will help. Take a deep breath and maybe even take a bit of a time off to reduce the stress. If stepping away from the cause is not possible, don’t worry, there are other solutions to cope with your anxiety. Remind yourself that this too will pass.
Balance Food and Sleep
Many times when we feel stressed we act out by eating too much and sleeping too little. These two factors need close attention when anxiety begins to overwhelm you. Make sure you are eating healthy and take steps to make sure you are getting enough sleep.
Curb Drinking and Drugs
While anxiety issues can make many want to just run away and hide, using alcohol or drugs to do this can just make the problem worse. Sometimes the problems that cause the anxiety can look larger and more insurmountable when under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
