Take the reins back from anxiety
For this reason, it is extremely important to keep looking for information, help and support. What constitutes help, treatment and support varies from person to person. What works for one person may not for another. Focus on what you think will help you, and don’t give up if one type of support or treatment doesn’t work out.
Here are a few starting points.
Mind your wellbeing
What are the little things you can do to feel better? Self-care is an important self-protective measure that benefits so many areas of life. Types of self-care that might help with symptoms of anxiety include relaxing, exercising, eating well, getting enough sleep, breathing exercises, mindfulness and limiting caffeine, alcohol and drugs.
Talk about it
Talking about the anxiety often helps and can give you a different perspective. Try talking with a friend or family member. Alternatively, talking therapies might also be of help. Ask your GP or check out www.iacp.ie or www.iahip.ie to find counselling in your local area.
