Do You Struggle with Anxiety Every Freakin Day of Your Life??

Are you uncomfortable physically?

Would you like to feel less stressed out?

Are you afraid of something in particular?

Does going out to a party make you feel anxious?

Wouldn’t it be nice not to have anxiety zap all of your energy? Wouldn’t it be better to focus that energy on creating positive new experiences?

In counseling, I strive to create a safe and calming environment where we can address these kinds of feelings. Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) is very useful in treating anxiety disorders. The cognitive element helps people change their thinking patterns that support their fears, while the behavioral component helps people change the way they react to anxiety provoking situations.

If you would like to learn more information about treating anxiety or any other mood issues, visit the National Institute for Mental Health.

Here are some tips to help you cope with your anxiety today.

1. Use relaxation techniques like imagery or meditation

2. Get at least some moderate exercise

3. Good nutrition is very important. You’d be surprised how what you eat can make you feel anxious. Try to limit your sugar and caffeine.
