Know yourself! I didn’t even really know I was anxious! The first step is recognising that you are anxious and what brings it on (if anything at all). When you’re able to recognise what’s happening to you, it makes it a hell of a lot easier to do something about it!

Change the record! I say this because its sooo easy to get trapped in a negative mind-set! For me it might sound something like,

  • “I’m on the train and I think I might be sick” (panic rising)
  • “It’s too packed on here and I can’t get off” (panic increasing)
  • “there are so many people, I don’t feel good” (overload!).

This for me can play over and over and over in my mind until I get off the train whether I’m at my stop or not!  It’s like a broken record.  So know what you’re doing and coax your mind onto another record.  Challenge your inner-self and if that doesn’t work distract yourself with a book or a game on your phone, anything. These negative mind processes make things worse, get rid of them!Diet! Yes, yes, yes, I know, everything seems to be about healthy eating these days! But a lot of people who suffer from anxiety are low in magnesium which is found in green leafy plants.  If you can’t bring yourself to eat well then take a vitamin! Honestly, take care of yourself, if you wont who will?

Breathe! Sounds simple eh? When you’re wound up your breathing goes funny and this means that your body doesn’t get the oxygen its needs to function properly. Ultimately this makes you feel a lot worse.  Yoga is great for making you be mindful of how you breathe, it can also help you to regain control when you think you might be about to descend into a panic attack.
