Anxiety can be an insistent intruder. But when it walks in, we don’t have to let it stay. It is, after all, our home. We can handle anxiety.
The holidays can be times of great anxiety for some. Maybe it’s financial pressure. Family problems. Illness. Or maybe it’s just free-floating anxiety and you can’t identify its root.
There was a time in my 20s when anxiety was a persistent visitor, returning time and time again and sticking like glue. It has a life of its own and it can seem difficult to slow it down or even stop it.
Although that hasn’t happened in a long time, back then, it was really debilitating.
But it’s possible to handle anxiety without drugs, and I’ve shown you one way in the graphic above. It’s simple, as long as you can sit still long enough to practice it.
This is what’s worked for me. Maybe it’ll handle anxiety for you, too.
Or maybe you’ve got a technique to offer in the Comments below.
