When I’m feeling anxious, or stressed out, there are a few things I like to keep on hand, in order to help relax me and keep my mind preoccupied.
1. Essential Oils
2. Oil Burner/lamp
The oil burner/lamp allows for the essential oil to warm up and spread quicker in the air. It’s also super pretty to look at!
3. Coloring Books & Color Pens
Coloring allows me to keep my mind busy on the task at hand. It keeps me focused on the colors and keeps the negative thoughts away. It helps me go from anxious to relaxed by the time I’m done.
4. Jazz or Golden Oldies Music
It’s important for me to have the right music on when I’m coloring and trying to relax myself. Of course, depending on my mood, I will change my music choice. For instance, if I’m feeling aggressive or upset, I let out steam by listening to Rock music. But usually when coloring, I keep the tunes light and calming (for me).
So that’s what’s in my Anxiety Survival Kit! Do you guys have things you keep near by, in case of an episode? If so, what helps you?
Peace & Love
