You are no stranger to anxiety.
You’ve worked HARD to learn your triggers and you’re doing so many good things to take care of yourself.
However, having anxiety about anxiety is completely normal and, let’s be honest, it’s reasonable!
I have successfully treated thousands of clients who have struggled with this same exact issue.
Here are the top 5 things that I teach them to cope this this fear:
✨ Write down all of the things that are causing stress in your life right now. Then, go back into the files of your brain to revisit which triggers have been problematic in the past. Anxiety doesn’t just “happen,” get clear on your triggers.
✨Get some movement - I know, I know this is usually the one no one wants to hear but hear me out. Try to move your body 30 minutes 3 times per week doing something that you ENJOY doing. If you hate the treadmill don’t do it, go for a walk outside instead.
✨ Limit your alcohol intake - when you consume alcohol, your cortisol goes up making it harder for your body to combat stress. Lay off for a little while and let your body recover.
✨Socialize in ways that feel good for you - maybe you need to go into the office at least 1-2 times per week. This doesn’t mean that you need to force yourself to be an extrovert if you aren’t one but just getting a little social interaction releases oxytocin, the bonding hormone
✨Tone your vagus nerve - this is the nerve that connects your brain to your gut. Try putting your tongue at the roof of your mouth, rubbing your arms and legs, petting your dog, shaking out your body.
✨Tame your perfectionism - could part of your anxiety be related to trying to do everything right all of the time? Working on accepting things as they are can do wonders in helping your stress levels come down and ease anxiety
