Coping Techniques

I am going to write down some of my coping techniques that I use when feeling anxious.

  • Listen to music. - When I am out and about on my own I put my earphones in and the music helps me to relax and relieves stress.

  • Cube BreathingBreathe in to a count of 4 -Hold your breath for the same count -Breathe out for same count -Hold breath for same count

  • Laughing - yes I know this one is a bit unusual, however, I find laughing calms me down. I laugh at the fact I'm anxious or panicking. It really works honestly.

  • Pep talk - I have been known to stand in front of the mirror in the bathroom before going out and telling myself I have nothing to be anxious about, that there is no danger. It works

These are some of my coping tools and I am sure other people may have more to add so please feel free.
