Anxious Much?!

Introducing…
The least calm and relaxed person you’ll meet 🙋‍♀️
.
Something about this time of year always kicks my anxiety into full swing and the past couple of weeks it’s hit me hard. 🤯
.
And I’ll be honest – yoga, meditating, calming activities… not my thing. So here are two things I’ve been working on:
.
→ My workouts. It’s no secret exercise has always been a solution for my my anxiety, so I’ve been continuing to push myself to get to the gym and get my workouts in BUT I’m trying to make them even more strategic to warding off anxiety.
.
I’ve been trying my best to NOT stress about everything else in the middle of a workout and really focus on the 5, 10, 15 minutes in front of me.
It’s been a great way to shut my brain off and focus on being present in the moment.
.
→ Anchor thoughts. Now before you roll your eyes, I thought this sounded crazy at first too, but it works. ⚓️
.
Pick a thought that makes you calm or happy.
When the panic or overwhelm hits, countdown from 5 and go back to that thought. It’s been a great way to immediately shift my thinking AND focus on the positive.
.
Helpful?! Anyone else have an anxiety busting tip you love? Do you struggle with anxiety this time of year too? Fill me in.
