Do you ever feel shakiness, fast heart rate, shallow breathing or sweaty palms? It is quite common to feel anxiety!

Anxiety stems from a feeling of fear and worry, whether throughout the day or during specific events.

To battle an episode of anxiety, you need to be armed with coping skills. These coping skills must be placed in a mental tool box.

If you are in a public place, your tool box should contain these coping skills:

find a quiet place and take deep breathes, while counting to say 30 to 40.

splash cold water on your face.

get fresh air as this gives you a break from people, technology and to-do lists by being one with nature, such as clouds, stars, trees or flowers.

carry essential oils with you to smell.

If you are at home, your tool box should include these coping skills:

light candles, incense or use a diffuser.

exercise.

grab a pen and pencil to write down your feelings, such as journaling which is the rage these days.

read a book.

There is a coping skill to have in your tool box wherever you are, and that is:

prayer.

Personally, I like to clip coupons. I mean, we all have to eat, right? The feeling of getting to save money. The feeling of shopping. The feeling of eating good food. It is a coping skill I always have in my tool box.

Just my 2 cents...
