How to ease anxiety

Up with anxiety having a hard time going to sleep this week. I had been under some stress after losing another one of my Uncles and couldn’t quite shake the jitters trying to fall asleep. Every time l think l’ve got this grief thing down. I’m painfully wrong.
Ultimately it is life and something we all must go through but it really really sucks and l wish l had a better way to put it but l don’t.
It didn’t help l had a glass of wine before bedtime. I learned that it can trigger jitters along with caffeine. Not a good look for a diva!
I went to bed well tried to.
I tossed and turned broke into a sweat. I never sweat heavily so l knew something was up. I was able to watch to two full feature films and not fall asleep. The movies triggered my anxiety so I decided since l couldn’t sleep to put this extra energy to use.
I stepped out on my patio. I’m glad it’s still cold out nice crisp after midnight chill. I held my cat then decided to make a cup of tea. I dimmed my lights. It’s helping as l’m writing l’m starting to calm down.
There really are no ways to get out of the horrible feeling of anxiety and panic attacks. It’s just something we have to go through understand it’s not forever but extremely uncomfortable. I was reading about how exercise actually calms the body. Incentive to start walking. I really need to get moving anyway.
I think about what l’m anxious about and honestly it’s a lot of things. The best way l’ve learned to tackle these issues is to focus on the right now to have faith that everything works out one way or another and the focus on the things l am in control of like what l eat and moving my body.
I focus on my goals and the things that l want to accomplish this year. Taking on the little things this week like starting my day with intention. Keeping up with my daily rituals and making adjustments as needed.
