1. Stop and breathe; get an app.

There are apps to help you practice mindful meditation and breathing. If you have a smart phone, you have the ability to find apps that will help you be more mindful and, through practice, ease your anxiety.

Try the FREE apps… Breathe or PTSD Coach or SAM

or ones that cost a little extra… Headspace or iCBT

2. Try talking to someone…online.

7cupsoftea.com offers free online counseling for anyone feeling anxious, in doubt, depressed or all of the above. I am both a member and a listener and have found it helpful to talk to someone. Just having them listen, no matter what the problem, is uplifting.

3. Read. Realize you are not alone.

I recently found this article titled “25 Stories of Panic Attacks and Living with Anxiety

4. Gather books and research self-help guides.

Look at, “Hope and Help For Your Nerves” by Claire Weeks for a more logical approach to understanding anxiety.

If you’re looking for a more hands-on approach, buy the workbook,”The Mindfulness & Acceptance Workbook for Anxiety” by John P. Forsyth and Georg H. Eifert.

5. Look for a therapist in your area.

There are easy ways to find a therapist in your area; look at the Psychology Today Database.. all you have to do is type in your City name or Zipcode!
