How can we help you?
Feeling overwhelmed with school?
It's okay to feel overwhelmed with school and life in general. Everyone does at some point and no one's going to judge you for it. You're doing great! If you can, take a moment to catch your breath and do something good for yourself. There are plenty of things you can do if you don't have someone to do it for you.
take a bathtake a walkmake your favorite dish/drinktake a napwatch a movie
We all live busy lives, whether it be school, life, work, and any other demanding expectations of our daily lives. Everyone needs a break every now and then, and you're doing great! We're proud of you!! :D
Is that all you needed?
anxious and sacred
Some important things you should be asking yourself in order to prevent things from going out of control: what caused you to be anxious? why are you anxious in the first place? It's important to recognize your triggers before they happen.
If you feel that your anxiety is worsening, here are a few things you can do to help manage it a bit.
breathing exercises: below is one of many breathing exercises that you can use. By evening out your breaths, you'll slow your heart rate which will help you calm down.
some common triggers for anxiety include, but are not limited to
school and/or work stressgenetics, anxiety can be inherited from your familytraumaphobias, such as claustrophobia (fear of small spaces)health issuescaffeineside effects of certain medication
It is important and beneficial for you to recognize tiggers you may have. Identifying these triggers is the first step towards managing them.
It's good to note that anxiety attacks and panic attacks are two very different things! Although they do share similar characteristics, a panic attack is much more severe than an anxiety attack. Below is a chart detailing the differences between the two.
What to do to calm an anxiety or panic attack?
breathe deeplysplash water on your facelisten to calming musicdo something physicalpicture your happy placepractice mindfulness (focus on an object)
These are just basic things, some might work for you and some might not. You will get through it, whatever it may be.
Is that all you needed?
Believe it or not, this happens more often to people than they would probably like to admit. You may start feeling apathetic and it is really easy to stay in this state of numbness. These types of feelings can affect your ability to focus in school, maintain relationships, and enjoy life. Everybody experiences it from time to time, situational apathy is normal.
As soon as you wake up, get out of bed, fight the urge to stay there all day. They key to getting back your motivation starts by simply putting your feet on the ground in the morning and getting out of bed. After, try getting ready for the day (dressed) because if you stay in your pajamas all day, it's easy for your brain to let the rest of you off the hook too.
Track your successes, big or small. Tracking these things can help you raise confidence and initiate a positive cycle. At the end of each day, take a note of at least three ways you were successful that day. It helps more than you think!!
Rely on your support systems, even if you currently have trouble reaching out to them. Reach out to the people who love you, they may be able to help you and connect with you. Through them, you can be able to find relief in what you're going through.
Remember!! This is something that happens to most people. You're not alone in this, even if that fact is hard to believe.
