Anxiety can be disabling to individuals who do not have the coping skills set into place. It manifests into not only an emotional reaction, but also a physical reaction in the body, all from something as simple as a thought sometimes. Your options are to work through it, ignore it, stuff it, or let it escalate. There are seasons, events, people, dates, things, places, and so much more that can trigger the thought that leads to the feelings of anxiousness. Everyone feels anxious at one time or another and this is not something to feel ashamed about.
Knowing that everyone will eventually come face to face with anxiety, we wanted to share a few coping strategies that may be helpful when you do encounter anxiety.
We hope you find these strategies helpful in your daily lives. Please share what you feel helps defeat anxiety for you!
