Hola guys!

It me!

So this week, as you can see from the title, I'm back on another tips/how-to blog post, but of course they are not 100% my personal tips. They are combination of my own, a few research that I did and from my best friend, Aqwa...or should I say Dr. Aqwa (he's a legit doctor) 😆

Anxiety is something that almost everybody knows. Some people know from watching movies, from reading a book/article, maybe from family/friends and some people know about it because they have/had it.

This week I'm gonna share with you guys some tips on handling or overcome anxiety.


I know it's kinda depressing that my third post in 2019 is something serious, instead of something fun, but sometimes in life we have to be serious and do some serious talk....LOL


I know I'm not a doctor or psychologist and maybe I'm not actually qualified to do this but as I mentioned, I have done some research and I have a reference. I'm not saying that you must follow these tips but I believe it does help.

The reason why I decided to post this is because I realized that nowadays, our generation especially, are dealing with anxiety almost everyday. And one of the person is....yours truly.

But don't worry, ya boy is fine.

It's just a minor anxiety. Nothing serious, I don't need to go see a doctor or something.


Okay. 👌

Now back to the topic.

I'm not exactly sure the cause of why our generation is dealing with anxiety and each person could have their own personal cause but I feel like the major reason is because of life demand (I don't if it's the correct term). Everyday we see a lot of people doing great things, achieving their goals and living the dream. So we feel like we should be doing the same thing but the truth is, not everyone have the same talent or opportunity or sources. Hence, we stressed ourself, instead of trying to find the correct path or finding our own talent and sources.

Anyway, I don't wanna preach or lecture. All I wanna do here is to share some tips.

So without wasting your time, here's the list of tips to handle anxiety:

(Please take note that all these tips are general, not specified for a certain condition.)

  1. Free your mind.
    You can do activities like meditation, listen to music or go get yourself a massage or even learn some relaxation techniques. These things can help you forget your problem, maybe not permenantly but at least for some times.
  2. Limit your alcohol and caffeine intake.
    Both can worsen your anxiety and trigger panic attacks. So, it's a no-no for both of these.
  3. Eat well-balanced meals.
    Make sure to not skip any meals. Breakfast, lunch and dinner. Keep in hand some healthful, energy-boosting snacks. I repeat, HEALTHFUL, not fattening snacks...LOL.
  4. Exercise daily.
    Mentioning healthful, doing some exercise daily can help make you feel good and also help maintaining your health. To find out what types of exercise, you can Google it because I aint got time to list it....haha
  5. Count to 10 slowly.
    I repeat, SLOWLY, because it's not gonna work if you count too fast. And also, repeat it or count to 20 if necessary. This will help calm you down when you start feeling anxious.
  6. Welcome humor.
    Laughing can also help keeps your mind off your problem or anxiety. Honestly, it does help.
  7. Be positive.
    Change your negative thoughts to positivity.
  8. Do your best.
    Sometimes, there are things that is beyond our reach or impossible to achieve. It's okay, be proud of however close you get. As long as you have done your best, it's good enough.
  9. You can't control everything.
    Before you get stressed out, think for a second, is it really as bad as you think?
  10. Be a part of something.
    Involve in volunteering or something that will get your mind off the things that stresses you out everyday. It can also creates a support network.
  11. Identify the cause.
    Try to find out what triggers your anxiety, is it work, family, school or something else? Whenever you get anxious, write it your diary or journal and see the pattern. Once you have identified, then you can find a way to handle it.
  12. Talk to someone.
    Let your family or friends know that you're feeling overwhelmed, and maybe they can help you or you can let them know how they can help. Physician or therapist is also a way for you to get a professional help. Which brings us to the next 2 points.
  13. Medication.
    It is called anxiolytics. This is what normally doctors will give if you have anxiety disorder. I'm not gonna elaborate on this part because honestly for me, medication should be the last resort. But it's just my opinion.
  14. Cognitive behavioral theraphy.
    This is a type of theraphy in which doctors or medical specialist correcting a specific idea that is wrong in the patient's mind. They are doing this by rationalizing what is right into his/her mind. It's kinda like no.8 but this is with professional help.

So that's all the tips that I have for you all this week. I hope it'll help you or the person you know.
