Quick Reads #2 - What Should You Not Do If You Have Anxiety

During anxiety, there are certain things you can avoid to stay calmer. Yes, we can say caffeine and alcohol but there are behavioral things that you should avoid. Here are a few things I would say you should avoid.

Do Not Blame Yourself

 You are not alone, don't feel ashamed or embarrassed that you have anxiety. You are not alone in this. No matter where you live or who you are, it's okay to have anxiety.

Don't Go Through This Alone

If anxiety is making your life difficult, if it's stopping you from going through life, seek a professional's help. You deserve the best.

Do Not Try To Self Medicate

This should be self explanatory, do not try to buy medications you think might help. You are not a certified professional, and that's okay but you shouldn't self medicate, this can make things worse.

 Do Not Withdraw From Life Activities

Do not think that just because you have anxiety, you cannot go enjoy life anymore. No! Go and do things you enjoy, find things to help take your mind off of anxiety. Don't hold yourself back.



Yes, anxiety is annoying but if you just go be yourself, seek help and have a good view of life, you can definitely get rid of it. Good Luck!

This Is What I Fear #8 - Domatophobia

Has the pandemic made your mental health degrade since you are mostly inside? Well people with Domatophobia - the fear of houses or being inside a house have it worse.
