Keeping a journal about your feelings of anxiety is a helpful way of finding out when you suffer the worst bouts or when you feel at your most relaxed.
It is a first step in discovering what relaxes you. It doesn’t matter how small or petty it seems, if it helps, then do it. Feeding the birds, collecting leaves, long soak in the bath, having a swim, anything that helps you to feel good.
Changing from caffeine drinks to de-caffeinated drinks will also help with your anxiety, that includes coffee, tea and alcohol. You can note any changes that you feel in your journal.
What we eat and drink can have an effect on our whole wellbeing. Sometimes food additives can stop us from having a restful nights sleep so try to drink water and think about what you eat and drink and note in your journal what, if anything, is making a difference.
The important thing to remember is that you can make changes that could help to decrease your feelings of anxiety
