How to Cope with Everyday Anxiety

If anxiety is getting to you, try these coping strategies:

  • Take action. Determine what’s making you anxious and address it. For example, if finances are your concern, draw a budget.
  • Let it go. Don’t dwell on past concerns. Change what you can and let the rest take its course.
  • Break the cycle. When you feel anxious, take a brisk walk or delve into a hobby to refocus.
  • Take care of yourself. Get enough rest, eat a balanced diet, exercise and take time to relax. Avoid caffeine and nicotine, which can worsen anxiety. Don’t turn to alcohol or unprescribed drugs for relief.
  • Talk to someone. Share your problems with a friend or counselor who can help you gain perspective.
