When I start feeling very anxious I PUSH myself to get out and walk we have hills and nice sidewalks.
I REMIND MYSELF TO TAKE DEEP BREATHS
I watch the gold hills and listen to the birds
I feel the sun and wind hit my face
I walk walk walk until I want to

Another is when I feel down I let my emotions come I cry and let it out.I journal and put it all in paper I express my feeling.

I read affirmations I like them because its simple thoughts and I take them in.More when I feel negative.

Music it has always been one of my favorite things to do listen it relax me and it lift my spirit up.

I talk to myself remind positive thinking.

I watch comedy shows or tv shows that are funny to laugh.

I talk to the people that support me and will LISTEN

I just try to take care of this childwithin that feels overwhelmed.
