Anonymous said: i feel the same way. i think that the whole nerve-wracking and stressful class i previously wrote to you about really thew me through a loop. i hate anxiety "spells" because they take a few days to completely come down from and I find myself missing my "strong and calm" self and feel hopeless, like I can't find that person. How do you cope with anxiety?

I cope with anxiety by getting back to the present moment. I look at what’s in front of me, feel the feelings in my body, breathe, and remind myself that nothing is wrong in this moment. Every worry or fear is located in the past or the future, and if you stay in the present moment, you can’t feel those feelings.

It also helps to go for a walk while trying to appreciate the pretty things I pass.
