The below tips are helpful for dealing with anxiety: • Mindfulness: Focus on the here and now, without any judgements. Try disconnecting yourself from the digital world and reconnecting with the natural world for a certain period each day. Go for outdoor walks and use the opportunity to pay attention to your surroundings using all your senses. • Maintaining a Journal: Log your thoughts in a journal. • Relaxation Breathing: The best way to reduce stress is to engage in deep breathing. Practice this strategy when you’re calm so you know how to use it when faced with pressure. When faced with anxiety around a specific situation or event, try the following strategies: • Question Your Thought Patterns: Do not allow negative thoughts to take root in your mind and distort events. Challenge your fears and ask if they’re true. • Use Aromatherapy: Soothe your nerves with scents like sandalwood, lavender, and chamomile in candle, incense or oil form.
