One of the most profound differences you can make is to stay in touch. In this fast paced, modern world, we tend to forget to stay connected to our friends and family. These are our anchors, the ones that keep us grounded and remind us of what is really important in life. Modern research indicates that happy people tend to have good relationships so, to draw a logical conclusion, good relationships should pave the way to happy people.
One of the best remedies for anxiety is to talk about it. Here's where good friends and family can come in. The old adage "A problem shared is a problem halved" comes into its own here, and while you may dismiss it as nonsense, it may surprise you how anxiety alleviating it can be to just talk to someone.
Obviously when you're feeling at a low ebb, the last thing you tend to think about is the things that are good in your life. But to do this is a sure fire mood lifter and anxiety buster.
In all situations that fuel your depression/anxiety, whether they be job related, family related or otherwise, try and think about all the things that you have done right. While its true that it is a good thing to acknowledge things that you can improve on, beating yourself up over mistakes you've made will only increase your anxiety.
Please do keep talking with us and know you are in good company.
