Most of the time I am in good control of my anxiety disorder. However There are times that find it a real struggle. Any suggestions on how to make sure I support myself to stay motivated?

I find that making sure I don't fall into the HALT zone (Hungry, angry, lonely, tired) really helps. I also, in moments of anxiousness, ask myself: "what can I do about this?" If I can do something, I do it. If I cannot, I let it go.

Just dont pressure yourself, take it slow, progress bit by bit, look back at your past experience how you control your anxiety and adapt it for the future..i hope this can be helpful to you.

If your anxiety gets triggered by a situation you must face, ask yourself: What's the worst that can happen? Your mind is probably creating horror movie scenarios that are unrealistic. But realistically, will you embarass yourself? Will you loose your job? And so what? Life goes on. It wont kill you I promise. Every day is a new day. Make peace with the worst possible outcome but dont dwell. Picture the outcome you want think positive.

Do you see a therapist? I know it was hard for me to get started, but it’s been a great support! I don’t know how interested really my family is in seeing me complete goals but a therapist could be a real cheerleader especially if you ask him or her for what you need.
The golden triangles are great but I like even better putting a gold star on a calendar. I ordered a roll of gold stars on Amazon and a FlyLadyPlus calendar ( Counted 27 days in a row with up to 6 days of missing the habit. Then I considered it a new habit!!

I’d meditate if the place I am in is empty or will move to a quite are. I have anxiety a lot too and especially when going on stage so wha I’d do is, i take deep breath, clench my hands, clench my body (if that’s the right word) while holding my breath then let go. It contracts all of my muscles even my brain. It’s kind of like pausing the world and time then a moment to rush to my own world, get some cozy space and think that I am in “the garden of my heart and mind” which helps me to cool down and then try to imagine that I’m talking to a really close friend who listens (my imaginary friend in that garden), all that in few seconds or a minute. This friends help me know which words to utter next at times of anxiety and anger (good words cz negativity isn’t worth it). Then I calmly walk back to earth (I don’t rush this time cz rushing is also anxiety), taking my time on the way back cools my mind and heart more and I come back to reality. Of course all of the journey I don’t try to make it obvious but what people on the outside would notice is I’d move aside from the noisy disturbing place, keep my phone and not reply to text anything and be quite

I find that setting yourself small goals makes it easier to follow your routines in hard times. When I don't feel like doing it at all, I commit to only one small thing, eg "just do your yoga, you can stop afterwards" or something else that only takes a few minutes. Often my motivation returns through action, and through the little steps that are completed. The longing to finish the whole thing returns when I've started it and see the first checkmarks. Also in all honesty, these routines help me with my anxiety rather than my anxiety stopping me from doing them, because it provides something stable to hold on to. Make sure your routine always starts and end with something you enjoy.

There is no real answer for that. It depends. Most of the time just being able to step out of a stressful situation and to cut off some time for yourself, to think, or just to listen to some music helps me a lot. Good luck with your problem.

Acknowledge the anxiety, write down what is causing it. Can you live with it? What can you change? Exercise, practice mindfulness (particularly meditation)

Try to remember the last time you were in good control of your anxiety. Let yourself remind that you’ll have the control again but meanwhile you’ll just absorb the moment without judging.

What I find most helpful is to reduce the stimulus around me…for example, if I am out with a group of people, I may chose to listen rather then engage or perhaps remove myself altogether and go outside for a chance to take deep breaths and have a private moment of gratitude.

Please make sure to remember that it is all a mental game. Anxiety is a distorted reflection of your reality and it creates more stress in one's mind than is actually neccessary considering the situation. Know that worrying doesn't help the situation. Approach things head on and rip it off like a bandaid!

Try downloading the Youper app. It's helped me a lot when I have anxiety or panic attacks.

Look for work by Kristin Neff. Start with her TED talk on self compassion and go from there. Enlightening and powerful if you can spare the time.

That is hard. I honestly don’t understand what makes me sustain my methods. I just know I have to keep going. If I don’t have a morning routine, I slowly spiral out. It’s like a medication pill, it’s okay to skip everyonce in awhile but don’t loose grip. Especially at the beginning, when I begin something I give it 6 weeks. To either see if it’s right or I was being weak. I come out stronger every time.

Think of the most important people or person in your life. Breathe through it as best you can knowing getting through those moments ensures you’re around for them when they need you.

Remember to practice deep breathing, meditation is super helpful in managing anxious thoughts, as well as hugely important to pursue therapy and be consistent with it.

Think of the benefits.stay focused and think about what you want to achieve. Your anxiety does not define you and you are the one in control

Remember to take your meditation with through the day. When you get stressed and anxious, focus on your breathing to lower your stress level and bring you back to the moment. Practices gratitude as often as you can for as much as you can. It's the most calming thing for me.
