Tips to reduce stress & anxiety

Reduce stress & anxiety tips

Anxiety & stress are emotions where you feel uneasy with worry or fear, the symptoms can range from mild to severe. Everyone will have feelings of anxiety or stress at some point in their life this could be from waiting for medical results, or waiting to sit an exam, or attend an interview, for example. These feelings are perfectly normal, and can help us to avoid dangerous situations, however, some people may struggle to control their worries and fears and these feelings of anxiety can affect your daily life. The symptoms of anxiety can range from panic attacks, phobias, PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) and social anxiety disorders. Regular thoughts of anxiety can develop into a mental health disorder and you then enter a vicious cycle of every situation becoming a potential crisis which can make you feel incapable of conducting your normal daily tasks. I think we can be too harsh on ourselves sometimes, and sometimes its ok to give yourself permission to suck at things, go easy on yourself, this can feel quite liberating. We can’t be good at everything, and we also can’t control everything in our life, or the product of past experiences. Here is a good quote: “You don’t have to control your thoughts. You just have to stop letting them control you.”-Dan Millman
