I have anxiety and here is a list of coping skills that help me and might help you.
1 Fidget Toys give me something else to focus on.
2 YouTube has given me an outlet for some of my feelings and has helped me to become more confident.
3 Writing and that’s whether I’m writing on this blog, fanfiction, original books, or in my journal.
4 My animals help me to feel calm and safe.
5 Talking to friends and family.
6 Yoga and I do this with the ‘Eyes Free Fitness’ app that is completely accessible!
7 Taking deep breaths when I start to feel panicky.
8 Knowing your triggers and coming up with coping skills to help with them.
9 Having friends who get it!
10 having a book to fall into!
