How To Cope With Anxieties

I’ve been reluctant to talk about it.

But I felt both compelled and the need to be responsible for talking about it.

Especially during the pandemic.

I’m talking about anxiety.

Lim Lishan said:

And there are a lot of fears in people. I feel like this virus has triggered a sense of uncertainty and insecurity, and made people panic more. I’m more sensitive in nature so I feel that it increases my anxiety level.

With uncertainties hovering over us.

With cancelled projects.

With postponement of almost all work.

It has indeed brought about some serious concerns.

Especially when the outs are more than the ins for the recent months.

Especially when businesses are unwilling to invest at this time.

Especially when there isn’t any light at the end of the tunnel.

Morning’s worst

Morning is the worst for me.

There are times when I simply can’t get myself out of bed.

The thoughts keep playing in my mind over and over again.

Until it becomes totally overwhelming.

Write it down

Divya Agrawal shared on my LinkedIn post that:

Not every day is equally productive, but it helps when I get up and write the first thing in the morning kind of sets my pace. The morning decides it for me. Get the morning right and everything rolls into perfection through the day.

I started writing the last two weeks.

It allowed me to take my thinking and put it down on paper.

I then get to examine and question my thoughts.

More often than not, those thoughts are nothing more than a limiting belief.
