How To Deal With Anxiety

Life is sooooo, ugh, I can’t even describe it! It was so great when we were in school. The things that used to worry us out were actual problems. Like, puberty, pimples, crush and attractions! That senior or junior who is so cute, but no, they’re senior! “But oh my gosh, did you like see like how cute he ysss!!!Like , Totallaayy”…! Then we went to college, discovered some more problems, like assignments, grades, college fests, competitions and winning and hostel life, and puberty to the next level, pimples became acne and all! Like actual problems, literally! We thought how hard can life be? Once I get a job or go ahead in my career, everything will be juuuuust fine! Just breathe¡!! Pheww… ThEN CAME THE WRATH OF EARLY 20S, WHERE EVERY DAY FELT LIKE A BATTLE AND EVERYONE WAS EITHER A FRIEND OR AN ENEMY BUT NO ONE COULD BE CONSIDERED A STRANGER, BECAUSE ADULTS ARE WEIRD. …..

With time, came struggles of course, physical, emotional and mental. Raise your hands if you have anxiety, breakouts on your whole body and have  no  idea what you’re going to do in life!!!! Yeah, well! When you’re going through this stressful phase, feels like never ending, just keep in mind these 5 points-

  1.  You’re not alone and it happens with everyone.
  2. Everything in this world is temporary, the good times and the bad times. That’s how we balance right?!!
  3. You’ve faced harsh times and have conquered them before. You can do it again.
  4. Hard times are there for a lesson. Learn everything you can from this situation!
  5. IGNORE EVERYBODY.

Sincerely, These things are the best things to cope with any situation because you know, they’re negatively positive, reassuring and a bit true ! So try them if you want to.

Now, of course we are talking about anxiety! I think, in this millennial generation, if you don’t have anxiety, you’re missing out on something man!!! Get a life!!

Okay, jokes apart, anxiety is like cold, everyone has it and it can be okay for a while, but before you know it, you’re again inside the trap!

Anxiety have many types. The main ones are Emotional and Social (I think). Seriously, I have read nothing about it, just experience is talking!

Emotional anxiety is very draining and exhausting (both are like same words, but i like them both here, so..). It hits you slowly. Like one day, you feel tired a bit, not that active or motivated, even if you did everything right! You feel lost for no reason. You create reasons. The brain plays a bitch role here. And the next day, you have a breakdown. You feel breathless and hopeless. You feel like you’re going to die and nobody will save you. And it’s hard to breathe and you feel dizzy! … Finally, it stops. Ladies and Gentlemen, that’s called a panic attack / anxiety attack. You feel fine and better the next day by the way. So Yayy? Or Nayy?….

Nayyyy…… Super Duper Nayyyy!

Anxiety attacks are one of the worsts! So I hope you don’t have them.

Social Anxiety (from what I’ve learnt) is directed to the social conditions around as ,as the name suggests. Like ,loud sounds irritate you, people irritate you, basically everything irritates you.

There’s a sub-part to this for me, called OCD! (Yeah, Monica Geller has it and alot of you as well..)….OCD is obsessive compulsive disorder and it is basically something you are obsessed about but also not obsessed about like when you are leaving your house and you think you forgot to switch off the stove or the gas but you already did that but you still check it like twice or thrice before leaving the house, so that’s called OCD.

I have experienced these types of anxieties and I have dealt with them. So I am going to tell you, how you can deal with anxiety too!!!

When it comes to our feelings and emotions, the heart is the master. So when it comes to emotional anxiety, the heart is the one you need to trick and train to control it. The things that you can do are -you can do deep breathing when you feel like very anxious. You can try as much as you can to let it all out by but crying, don’t overdo it, you’ll get exhausted. You can also do a workout or exercise or go out cycling or for a walk because it really helps to keep your heart into better circulation mode and  it helps with the mood to become better. So, this is how you can deal with emotional anxiety but the problem is, if you have anxiety you need to be careful about your habits and the people you hang out with. You also need to keep a track on how often do you get panic attacks or feel anxious which can help you to control it the next time anything happens. Keep a track of triggers around you that make you anxious and remove them from your life. Take good care of YOU.

 

HEART TO HEART

When it comes to our feelings and emotions, the heart is the master. So when it comes to emotional anxiety, the heart is the one you need to trick and train to control it. The things that you can do are -you can do deep breathing when you feel like very anxious. You can try as much as you can to let it all out by but crying, don’t overdo it, you’ll get exhausted. You can also do a workout or exercise or go out cycling or for a walk because it really helps to keep your heart into better circulation mode and  it helps with the mood to become better. So, this is how you can deal with emotional anxiety but the problem is, if you have anxiety you need to be careful about your habits and the people you hang out with. You also need to keep a track on how often do you get panic attacks or feel anxious which can help you to control it the next time anything happens. Keep a track of triggers around you that make you anxious and remove them from your life. Take good care of YOU.

BRAIN GAME

When it comes to our social behaviour, our reflexes and our responses, the brain is the master. To deal with people around you, you first need to train your brain to be calm and the trick of deep breathing helps here as well. It helps both the heart and the brain,so do the deep breathing thing. You can also meditate or if you cannot concentrate while meditating you can just close your eyes and calm your mind for just about a minute or two. You should take small breaks in between your work or your tasks. That just recharges your brain so that you don’t feel stressful and anything like anxiety can stay away from you. If you still feel very anxious or stressful, you should journal a lot.   You should write down your emotions,you should write down whatever you’re feeling. This really helps because the brain is kind of a hollow vessel and it can contain only few things. It gets worked up with a lot of information, so you need to let out some of the information in order to make room for some other information you really want to keep in your brain. So that is how you trick your brain to remain stress free, by unloading it.

For OCD, the trick you can apply to your brain sound simple, but is very difficult! You have to control your brain and not let the brain control you. So, tell yourself repeatedly that you have already done that task and you don’t need to check it again. You have to do it repeatedly, only that’ll work and otherwise the brain will control you like it always do. So try to take control of your brain and that’s all I think you can do.

You can deal with all the hardships in your way. The only thing stronger than these hard times is our will to remove them and enjoy life as it is.

 Take Care.
