Three things to manage anxiety
Hello, my name is Dr. Sumner and I'm here to talk to you about three things you can do to manage anxiety.
The first thing to do is simply notice, notice those moments when you are feeling anxious. Conscious awareness is helpful to identify in particular, triggers. So we understand what it is that's making us feel anxious. And journaling is a great way to do that.
The second thing is to use simple relaxation techniques, such as breathing exercises, I'm mindful activities.
Thirdly, it's really important that if you're feeling overwhelmed by anxious thoughts and feelings, if you feel like your anxiety is increasing in frequency, then please reach out to a mental health professional who can provide you further details, support and advice.
