How You Can Learn to Manage Your Anxiety Now

Stop And Breathe

Anxiety is typically experienced as worrying about a future or past event. But anxiety loses its grip when you clear your mind of worry and bring your awareness back to the present.

When anxiety takes you out of the present, regain control by sitting down and taking a few deep breaths. You can also try using a breathing exercise and mantra.
