Hello I have not tried meditation but I would like to try. Any suggestions
In my experience meditation can be very difficult with strong anxiety or racing thoughts, depression etc. I would start with some simple breathing exercises. Proper breathing is the foundation of meditation, so it’s a good starting point.
If you want to check out meditation , headspace has a free two week trial.
I don't know if it would work for you but, for me I love thunderstorms so listening to thunderstorm soundtracks and just closing my eyes and focusing on the sounds of the rain and thunder help me when I feel panicky sometimes.
I hear you. I can empathize with the racing thoughts and anxiety.
Classical music helps to calm me. So does the unconditional love from my cats. Also a nice warm soak in the bath works wonders.
There’s lots of anxiety calming options out there... such as this site... it’s like a home away from home for me.
So glad I joined I feel safe and not alone. I have cats as well and my fur babies bring me joy. Thanks for the tips
GABA or theanine are both very calming stick to a low dose but they shouldn't be taken if you are on medication, same goes for evening primrose oil
Absolutely avoid caffeine.
