Anxiety & Nervousness: How to Deal With It

Let me start off by saying that anxiety and nervousness are two completely different things. You can be diagnosed with anxiety, however, being nervous is something that we all tend to experience from time to time.

I have been having really bad anxiety lately, and trust me, it has not been nice at all. It leads me to become overly frustrated and overwhelmed. It's not easy dealing with these things sometimes.

It is normal to deal with these two things. Don't feel left out. Maybe not every single person goes through it, but just know you're not alone! I want to be able to share information to help you cope with both of these.

Before diving into this, you have to ask yourself, what makes you nervous? What makes you anxious?

I'm going to tell you a few things that make me nervous and anxious: being around a huge crowd of people, getting attacked with a million questions, and super serious talks about my life and future. Also, when it rains really badly, my anxiety goes through the roof.

I know that the things that get me in that state are crazy considering the career path that I am taking. See I know that I'm going to have to be around a huge crowd of people. I'm going to get asked a million questions, and I'm going to have super serious talks with people about my life and future.

 I believe these things bring out my anxiety and me being nervous because I fear these things. I am AFRAID! No matter how confident I may seem, I still have a bunch of fears behind all of this. Don't get me wrong, I am working on all of these things for plenty of reasons. One is that the career path I am taking will require these, and for two, I don't want to be this way my entire life. I want to get over these fears so I can literally dominate these things!

Now that you know what gets my anxiety and nervousness going, let me share with you some tips that have helped me with mine that could potentially help you with yours.

Take a moment to stop and breathe. Sometimes we just get so overwhelmed, we forget to stop and take time and breathe. Focus on your breaths. This will help you calm down. Clear your mind of whatever is worrying you. Think about positive things. When your anxiety starts taking over, please stop everything, and breathe. This will calm your anxiety.

Two choices; let it go or deal with it. See this is a problem we all tend to have most of the time. We have our problems and we keep talking about it, however, we do not deal with them nor try to deal with them. The next time you have a problem that makes your anxiety or you being nervous kicks in, either deal with it or let it go. Once you choose one of these choices, you can now shift your energy to the state of being calm.

Talk to someone. Talking to someone helps you cope with a lot of things. You never know how one conversation can turn out. For example, if you are nervous about something, talk to someone because you never know if they have tips to help you with whatever you're nervous about, or they can be dealing with something similar. If they're dealing with something similar, it gives you a sense of peace because you know that you're not the only one dealing with these things.

Aromatherapy. This helps keep you calm and focused. You can try a diffuserincenseor candles. 

Try yoga. Sometimes the best thing to do when you're anxious is to focus on your body. Yoga will help you do that as well as relieve a lot of stress.

Seek professional help. If you need further help, try to get you a therapist. Professional help can really help you. Don't think of it as telling a stranger your problem, think of it as telling someone who cares about your problems. These people live by helping others and making them feel better.
