Goodmorning everybody..or should I say goodnight to everyone here in oz.  I just wanted to join the the role call to say I am still here.  I dont actually have any regime for anxiety at the moment. I generally deal with it one day at a time.  I guess the way I am dealing with it or keeping it under control at the moment is by conciously staying in the moment and remembering it is my mind and I have total control over it.  'A thought is just a thought' and 'a thought can be changed or replaced'.  By doing this in the early stages of anxiety I feel I am able to minamise the severity of the attack.  I have also slowed my life down and made it quite simple, basic...work, kids, family not much else.  It is much less scary that way for the time being.   gillxx

Hey,

I do some light yoga, walking, (meditation and prayers plus vitamins), eating healthy, lots of water, a few herbs when needed and entertainment is great :) I also would like to have some accupuncture and a deep tissue massage one of these days when I can afford these luxuries.

Hope all is doing good today!

Did you learn yoga at some class/school or did you learn it by reading books etc.? I'm thinking about taking yoga classes but I don't know if it is worth it. Do you think we can learn it just by reading or watching videos? :)
 
Love Melodee  :)

Hi Melodee :)  How have you been doing?

The best place to start for learning yoga is YouTube.  You just go on there and type in "yoga videos" and there are lots of them.  There is also vids of martial arts and other cool exercise stuff :)  I would start there, and if you can, go to the library and check out a few books that has tons of pictures in it.  There will also be other things in there on health :)

Take care now!

Your Bro Sam :)

Tension Tamer Tea.... by Celestial Seasonings... It's good stuff. Really relaxing.
I think I am being picked on by life, sometimes. But's that okay. Life and I are good buddies... I know life doesn't mean no harm. It just is the way it is. I can accept that.

Hi Sam :)
 
I'm doing ok. tongue
Haha, I watch youtube everyday and I never thought of searching for yoga videos. LOL That's a great idea and it's all free! smilewinkgrin
Well I just checked some out and some of those people are VERY flexible. I think it will take months for me to learn to bend like that LOL!
Thanks again Sam, good luck with your yoga exercises, too! yeah
 
Love Melodee :)

Lavender pillow spray or lotion
Passion Flower Tea
drink lots of water so I don't wake up thirsty (side effect of meds)
read until I can't keep my eyes open anymore :)

I also heard that bananas have triptophan like the turkeys do, so I'm thinking about adding a banana in about an hour before bedtime.
