So I have loads of ways that I deal with Mental Health and mainly Anxiety. I’ve wrote a few blog posts and I wanted to compile one blog post to talk about everything that I’ve wrote about so far this year, possible a few from previous years as well.
I just feel that if they’re in one place it’s easier for someone to get all the help they need. Also it saves you from having millions of tabs open, unless you dig deeper and have a look at the full blog posts. Let’s kick it off shall we.
You may have seen me talk about my comfort box, if you want to know more then click on the link above. I’ll explain briefly for now though. Find a box in your house, it doesn’t have to be too big because otherwise it’s going to be difficult to store the thing. You can even make it look pretty if you want to, I picked one with a pattern so that I didn’t need to put in too much effort.
You can then fill it up with everything that makes you happy and calms you down so that whenever you’re anxious you can go to the box and hopefully feel better.
I’m learning to draw, slowly but I’m learning. I find art an amazing way to pass the time, it also gets me in my comfort zone and helps keep me centered and calm me down. It really works for me, it doesn’t matter if they’re adult colouring books or free hand drawings. I wrote a post about some rocking art supplies so I think you should check them out, they’ve kept me going for ages now so they are worth it.
Who doesn’t love to sing, whenever I find myself using the Instagram story feature I find myself singing along to someone or mouthing the words to some amazing tunes. I love music and it really helps get me in a good mood. I would suggest to anyone who deals with Mental Health and Anxiety on a regular basis to make a playlist and make sure you have it whenever you feel like you need it.
I don’t have a favourite platform, I mainly use iTunes currently because I have a free subscription but I’m sure any platform will do, spotify, Amazon or YouTube. YouTube is free although you do have adverts!
There you have it, the three ways I’ve mostly used this year to help me cope with my Mental Health and Anxiety. They all work great for me and I would seriously recommend anyone to give them a go. I would also like to point out, as I have before that these methods may work for me but don’t get frustrated if they don’t work for you.
At the end of the day everyone is different, we all find help through different means and that’s okay. As always don’t forget I’m here for you, check out some of my other blog posts for more help and if you need someone to chat to leave a comment or drop me a social media message! Thanks for reading!
