    Hi Vix, amazing post thanks so much for your tips. It’s so good how different things work for everyone! Back in July of this year I had a mega anxiety rush that lasted a whole weekend when I was with my best friends for our 30th weekend- they felt like strangers and I knew I needed to make changes to look after myself.
    – I gave up coffee (its my one true love but it was making me crazy!)
    – started journalling (and everyday I write 3 things I’m grateful for)
    – took up yoga 3 times a week
    – looked into astronomy (something about looking at space makes me feel so comfortably inconsequential)
    – really got into aromatherapy (like you, it’s lush smelling nice things and helps me feel grounded)
    – got a tattoo to remind me how I wanted to feel

    Flash forwards to today and my anxiety is less like a flood and more like a dripping tap. Good luck to anyone going through it, it’s like a horrible fog, but once you’ve drawn yourself a map to get out it you’ve at least got a guide to help you next time it gets chilly xxx

    I suffer from quite bad anxiety and since phasing out medication a lot of my coping mechanisms are the same as yours! x

    I find going for a walk, diving into a book or doing little things that relax me like painting my nails can really help me calm my thoughts. You’ve got some great suggestions here xx

    I love these tips! It helps to hear coping strategies, both common and new. I have dealt with anxiety for quite sometime, and it’s so helpful to be reminded to step back and slow down sometimes. Quality post, dear!

    I’ve never thought of myself as having anxiety and just thought I have rare, random anxious moments and social awkwardness. However, I can relate to every line in this post so maybe it’s a little deeper than I thought.

    These are some really good points and things to think about when anxiety next shows it’s ugly head. I like to rub my forehead right where my sinuses are and it really relaxes me. Also shutting off from social media for a while helps, sometimes social media gives me anxiety and I have to turn away for a couple of days. I love your outfit here! Just thought I’d add that in there 🙂 x x

    Getting sucked into TV shows or movies really helps me. I can watch the same thing that I have seen a thousand times before and it really seems to mellow me out. I make sure that I always have my iPad and earphones in my bag for when I need it!

    Such a great post Vix, and I’m sure it will really help someone if they’ve never suffered with it or find it hard to cope! Alice xxx
