Anxiety – Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) guide

They have a very easy to understand & helpful guide to anxiety here

It is tough times at the moment and anxiety & worry will be high given the current events in Ukraine, along with the pandemic, rising living costs…crikey making myself even more anxious now! Seriously though there is help out there, you must never feel you are alone as someone, somewhere will listen. I am lucky to have a supporting family, but even with that it so easy to overthink things and become anxious, which can lead to physical symptoms too.

Do try to limit your news intake each day and set aside some time for your worries at a set time of the day. Worry time as the Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) bods calls it. This blog has a good guide on it.

I may mention music a bit 🙂 but it does help me at work to concentrate and block out outside chatter about world events, which can make you feel worse and lets face it, unless you are a specialist in any area your work colleagues & friends are merely expressing opinions or social media ‘truths’.

Stay safe out there and don’t feel bad in asking for help or telling someone how you feel.
