Notes from Neuro Café 24th May 2023 by Linda S
Anxiety can sometimes be helpful making you more alert. However sustained anxiety which has an impact on day-to-day life can start to become a problem.
Certain groups of people are more at risk for developing anxiety such as people with long term health conditions.
There are self management techniques that can help anxiety such as breathing techniques, exercising, eating a healthy diet, spending time in nature, taking up a hobby or doing an activity you enjoy.
Connecting and talking to others about your anxiety or keeping a diary of your thoughts can reduce anxiety.
Contact your GP for more support. They can refer you for Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) or advise medication if they think appropriate.
Lots of people experience anxiety. Be yourself. Be kind to yourself.
