Anxiety tends to build over time. Through awareness, we can help minimize its effects.

What you put into your body will affect your energy and how your mind and body feel. Limiting your intake of coffee, alcohol, and sugar can make a big difference.

When you find yourself overly critical of yourself or your work, pause and ask what you would tell your younger self. Try to be compassionate with yourself without repressing your inner critic.

Movement is important to help us get out of our heads. Movement can include exercise or going for a walk or run.

The most straightforward anxiety management technique is deep breathing: Five seconds on the inhale, five seconds on the exhale. It will stop your racing mind and calm you down. Deep breathing can also be incorporated into your daily routine.

In order to have clarity of thought and a calm mind, it sometimes involves taking things off your plate.

Meditation as a practice is useful to tune into awareness and to calm your nervous system.

During stressful times, reaching out to a friend or trusted family member can ease anxiety.

You can choose to approach life anxiously, or you can choose to approach life calmly. When negative thoughts arise, ask yourself, "Is this a thought that serves me?"
