First Post

This is my first post on this site, I have responded to other posts here, but thought I would post with some thoughts :)

These are some ideas that have helped me through my health anxiety:

First and foremost accept thats its anxiety(I know this is a tough one), DON'T be afraid of it..accept it...I sometimes even get mad at it.

Be as health focused as you can right..exercise (garden / walk / housework) what ever your body can handle.

Love yourself....accept all of your little flaws (yes even your anxiety)because this makes you YOU.

Take life day by day..Dont reflect on the past or fret about the future.

If you need help, ask for it.

Your mind is very powerful, it tries to make you think negative thoughts..outsmart it!! Think positive :)

I am by no means anxiety free, but each day I feel more and more like I am going in the right direction . It takes time and patience.

Everyone on here has the power to overcome their anxiety ..Afterall it is just thoughts in our mind that we become afraid of...Don;t be afraid. Baby steps..we can all do it!!

Love Robyn

Thank you Robyn for taking time to help others.

It's difficult to see the light at the end if the tunnel - even when we know it's there. But anxiety does pass and as you say a healthy lifestyle is a way forward.

For the last three weeks anxiety has hijacked my life but today, despite being awake at 3.00am, i am feeling calm. I'm thinking positively about the future - I'm going to take 'baby steps', two at a time because anxiety sets me back one step and I'm determined to move forward!

I'm happy to do this with others.

Take care.
