One thing that I have noticed in my Blog posts about having Anxiety. I have really only talked about having it and what I go through when I have it.
Then when it occurred to me, I should start writing about I find helps myself. I started to think about it when I pointed it out to someone you are never really “cured” from having anxiety. You just learn over time to listen to yourself, your body and learn how to not live with it per-say, but better cope. So you don’t overwhelm yourself.
What I’d like to do if I’m feeling a bit more anxious, there’s a couple of things:
- I have two word games, one an anagram games and the other is a sort of crossword.
- I always makes sure that I have my earphones with me. If I get the right sound to help, the difference that couple of minutes can make!
- Going for a walk, the fresh air…I love that fresh air.
I was going to originally title this post “There is no a cure for anxiety!”
Then I thought though, that sounds like a really harsh topic heading to get this post started on and I do not want to upset people.
I was talking on Facebook…discussing, if you will, about how you can “cure” anxiety with good food, lots of exercising…and I do hate it to say it…There is no cure for anxiety…If there was no one would suffer from it anymore. If there was, trust me, it would be the most popular item on the market and would probably sell out ALL the time.
Saying that though, there are ways to help and make life easier…Too “control” it to a certain extent.
Everybody is different and can learn to control it in different ways for yourself. Myself personally:
- I do not drink coffee anymore, unless I am 100% certain that I am not headed anywhere. Of course though life is uncertain, especially lately!
- If I’m having trouble sleeping I use my Atmosphere anxiety app.
- Meditation is so helpful! Make a “space” for yourself. Even if you have to go out to do it. At least once a week, get a space for yourself.
- I am aware there are days where I feel vulnerable, so I wont go on places like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc.
- Then there are other days where I feel like I could fight back.
- Computer games, for myself, are a GREAT distraction! I have a couple of games that I can lost in for hours and forget for a while. Then because I’m not constantly thinking about whatever is causing myself anxiety. It calms me down. Especially when I have trouble jumping in Guild Wars 2,lol
Some areas of my life have gotten a LOT better.
This is my response to the “Daily Post” question:
“If you could create a painless, inexpensive cure for a single ailment, what would you cure and why?”
Without a doubt I would want to find some kind of cure for Emphysema. I had to watch my Grandfather die from it and I can say with all of my heart, I would not wish that kind of death on my worst enemy. Even if it meant that as the time neared, it made the breathing easier and better, that’s all I would want. No one should have to die like that.
This is definitely how I am feeling today (I had my birthday party last night,lol) Now that we’re getting closer to Winter down under, I may really need this!
Boohoo.com is also my favourite online shopping store (I don’t think they deliver to the US though =()
Anyone have any hangover cures that they wish to share?
How have I NEVER talked about the magic that is Chinese food! Whether you are into Panda Express (which I loved when I was in Arizona) or your local small business family run restaurant, I think that Chinese and Asian food may be the one of the most magical foods on the planet! Just writing this is making me literally crave it.
It tastes amazing when you crave it, when you don’t crave it and then start craving it when you start to eat it. To have it though when you have a massive hangover…Oh, it makes what I feel magically go away, every-time! I think that I maybe a little bit addicted to it to be honest.
So this is a bit of a big topic…One of my friends posted this on their Facebook page and it seems so important that there was no way I could not share this.
