Cuddle your loves—-> often.
Target run with a Starbucks treat while you’re there. If money is fine- flip a coin on a map and road trip where it lands Music (preferably a jam session with LOTS of mirror dancing and brush microphone) Talk it out- loved ones are there for you. Preachers, Counselors, Friends & Family. Find a hobby you love, and do it- often. Breathe. preferably deep breathing exercises. Yoga helps! Start a new venture. Maybe your anxiety is spawned from you feeling like you’re settling. Find your solution from the root of your problem. Eat & Drink CLEAN for one week. Detox your body & mind. Delete or stay off social media for one month. My challenge for you. Let go & live. I hope some of these work for you! If you’re wanting to read a more in depth post about how I use my top 11 methods to get a grip on my anxiety, click this link to be redirected to that post. I found that I really started thriving when I refused to give in to the anxious feelings. It boils down to- if you’re not happy in what you’re currently doing.. change it. You have that power. A lot of the anxiety now days is spawned from social media and the “ideal” life living solely online (meaning what you see MAY not be reality but just a snapshot of one moment in time)- so cleanse. Spend that 15 minutes you usually put towards Instagram to paint with you kiddos or have a shaving cream art party. It’s a lot more fun than the latest gossip anyway.. So make those memories. Climb a waterfall and drink from it. Get outside and clear your mind. You got this!XOXO,Lenzi
