I was diagnosed with severe anxiety in 2011 at the age of fifteen. Over the last ten years, I have experienced hundreds of panic attacks, irritability, over worrying, extreme exhaustion, and so much more. I know that anxiety can be overwhelming at times and I wanted to share some tips on how I cope on a bad day.

Please note that anxiety is different for everyone, take these tips as mere suggestions.

Take deep breaths:
Taking ten deep breaths often helps to calm my nerves and center myself, allowing me to move my focus away from my panic attack.

Step away from what is upsetting you:
Getting some distance is great, even if it is just into the next room. Take five minutes to yourself.

Distract yourself:
Clean. Blare music in your headphones. Pet your dog. Sing show tunes at the top of your lungs. If you can distract yourself for a few minutes you may be able to make the panic attack less draining and eventually learn to control it.

Listen to your body:
Are you completely drained? Set your timer and take a thirty-minute nap. This can help rejuvenate you and help you feel more relaxed.

Meditation is key:
I meditate once a day before bed to help calm my nerves. I have found that this helps me sleep as it relaxes me and helps my anxiety calm down.

Remember that anxiety does not control you. It is important to take care of yourself and keep your head level.

Deep breaths!

Death is the final answer.

For some this will also mean renewal and rebirth. Those who go in felicity with God have no more sorrows or tears.

Death is not a solution but a corpse will not feel anxiety.
