Ahoy!

Whether you have anxiety disorder or not, most of us will feel anxious and stressed at some point in the school/college year.


Anxiety, is in short, a feeling anxious and nervous. However, anxiety is also a recognised nervous disorder marked by anxiousness in excess. It can stop people from going to certain places, disrupt sleep and interfere with your work and education.

Recognising Anxiety



              


Dealing With It:

All have been tried and tested! Also, I'm going to pretend to be some medical expert! Information is just things I've found online that explain how things work! X 
  • Blowing on your thumb
Here's how it works -----> http://www.newsweek.com/career/weirdest-stress-reducer-ever-totally-works

  •  Don't be afraid to tell your professor that you feel uncomfortable and would like to take a break. Don't feel obliged to stay in class because there is nothing worse than feeling terrible in front of a group of people who may not understand. 
  • Listen to music
Studies show that music lowers anxiety levels, blood pressure and heart rate.
  •  Practise breathing exercises

  •  Have a drink 
  • Do a yoga routine as part of your morning or night routine

I alternate between the exercises in this book, and the yoga routines on the HomeWorkouts app! 
  • Get organised! 
This includes everything from sorting out your wardrobe, decluttering, going under your bed (dun, dun dunnnnnnn), creating a schedule and tidying up. 

Suggestion:
If anxiety or panic attacks happen regularly, go to the school nurse. They will be able to give you advice.

  1. This is a great topic to discuss. It's important to take care of yourself and figure out how to overcome anxiety (still working on that myself). These are some great tips. I love yoga and it really can make you feel better. Exercise in general is a nice mood lifter because of endorphins.
