Always Anxious? 5 Ways to Navigate Your Emotions & Reduce Anxiety!

We all experience some degree of anxiety. Learning how to recognize, accept and navigate anxiety will provide greater insight and a deeper level of understanding and self-awareness. Whether you're experiencing anxiety yourself, or you are helping someone else, there are many techniques to help calm anxious feelings. Here are my top five:

  • Know you are not alone. 
  • Consider what is causing the anxiety. What insight are you gaining from the situation? 
  • Repeat a phrase that focuses on moving forward. When I'm feeling overwhelmed I say, "It feels hard now, but I will get through this." 
  • Focus on something exciting. "I can't wait for..." 
  • Put your worry "on a shelf" with plans to come back to it while you shift your focus.
