I’ve decided 2017 is already way too stressful for me and Dizzy. We’re back at the hospital on Wednesday for tests. One of those visits to find out your synptoms could be nothing or something really serious.
The waiting is making me go a bit nutty with stress so I thought I would make a little post on my ways of helping combat anxiety. It helps me remember to do them and hopefully will be useful to other people too!
- Talking to someone. For me I always jump to the worst case scenario and then spend hours thinking about this worse case scenario until I’m completely convinced this is definitely what is going to happen and I may as well give up on life now. But as soon as I talk to someone and they remind me there are other options things seem abit better. 🙂
- Yoga! I do find yoga amazing. Meditation can sometimes be good but if I’m really stress I find it just gives my mind extra time to worry. Yoga with Adriene is my favourite as I never feel rubbish if I can’t do any of the positions and some of them I find so relaxing I’m nearly asleep by the end!
- Yummy Food!
- Rubbish telly. This one comes with yummy food. Day time telly or silly films where the worst thing that happens is someone being late for work because they’ve got stuck behind a hang of ducks. This has to be done properly though with snuggly blanket/duvet and yummy food. 🙂
- Cuddles! Because I do love cuddles.
And if all else fails just head back to bed. 🙂
Let me know what your stress reducing methods are so I can give them a go. 🙂
