Anxiety has a way of reeling you in and keeping you in this constant loop of anxious thoughts, one after another. It’s draining! Try being an observer of your thoughts, knowing that you will successfully make it through anything that happens. Shifting your perspective and going into observer mode is like watching clouds drift by. Releasing your thoughts may be easier than you think but it doesn’t happen immediately. Be patient and take a look at a few our simple tips that can help you instantly calm your anxiety.
If you haven’t looked at our affirmations for love and self-care, we have put together a few simple phrases for you to keep in your back pocket when you need them.

It’s like calling out your bully in front of a crowd–they usually shrivel up and run away due to their imminent fear of exposure. So anytime you may feel your anxiety start to bubble up having a quick phrase on hand such as “This is scary for me right now but I can handle this and keep going”. This calls out your fear and reinforces your ability to move forward. Now you have the power.
As trivial as it may sound, breathing may be one of the best techniques to calming your anxiety as it turns your attention away from the problem and solely to your breathing. Become aware of your body and breathe in and out on a consistent rhythm. You may also say the words in and out as you breathe to help you maintain focus.
