If you're working from home, puppy cuddle breaks also do wonders. ;)
thanks for making this vlog caitlin :) i've been dealing with my anxiety and trying to get a grip on it for a couple years now, and i'm always looking for new tips and advice. it's so reassuring and comforting to hear you talk about it. i really like your tip on asking yourself if you're having an appropriate reaction to the situation. i do that too, and i run through a little checklist in my mind of everything going on at the moment, my reaction, etc. i'd love to see more vlogs, they're so fun to watch and i love hearing bloggers' voices!
Good tips, especially about assessing whether a reaction is appropriate for worst case scenario. The anxiety thing I struggle with most is day-to-day conversation, so I really don't know how to help myself there. Drives me crazy. I can have a perfectly normal conversation with a shop attendant/taxi driver/tourist no worries, but when it comes to a casual conversation at work or with friends-of-friends I'm just so awkward and stuttery. Trying to work on it :-/x
fabulous Vlog. I struggle with deperssion and anxiety also at various stages. I find time to myself and a good dose of exercise works!xo em
So well-spoken! Obviously you know I'm the worst at ACTUALLY stress and anxiety... but I TRY to handle it by channeling it into a workout or some writing, but those are after-the-fact things. I need to be able to get through that moment IN the moment more often!!
If the world ends and we're all dueling for food, at least you'll have Rob! I feel like he'd be pretty handy in that scenario.
Great vlog! Most of those strategies are new to me, so I'll definitely have to keep them in mind. I tend to avoid things when I get stressed out or anxious, but I've been working at actually dealing with it.
I always forget how darn cute you are when you vlog, lol! "This is Caitlin. Obviously."Also, your tattoo looks AWESOME. I really like your tips for coping with anxiety. One of my best friends deals with this all the time, so I may pass those tips on to her. Great vlog, lady!
great vlog caitlin! i've had anxiety for almost 9 years and it freaking sucks but i have learned a few ways to cope during my attacks. i found if i read something it is a great way to distract my current negative thoughts. even if its like reading a shampoo bottle. also the deep breaths help and just getting outside for fresh air cleans the cobwebs out. lately i've found screaming into the pillow is a great way to release energy. the neighbors are probably ready to call the police haha
This is an awesome vlog. Nice work, lady! Glad you chose to do a video on this instead of a written post. I think the video looks great but I use Vimeo in case you wanted to try that. HUGS!
My anxiety gets so crazy.. I haven't driven my car since October..that's the truth too... every time I get in the car with someone I start convincing myself that I am going to die. Morbid huh?Don't even get me started on the end of the world! Great video lady!
Go ahead and leave a comment! You know you want to.
