theme July 2019 TEN81 out

“You don’t have to control your thoughts. You just have to stop letting them control you.” - Dan Millman 

This month, TEN81 looks at tips on dealing with and learning to manage anxiety.

• Move your body. Exercise is an important part of both physical and mental health.

• Pay attention to sleep. Enough hours of sleep and quality of sleep are equally important.

• Ease up on caffeine and alcohol. Caffeine, which is an “upper”, and alcohol, which is a “downer”, can make anxiety kick into overdrive.

• Schedule your worry time. Pick a time to think about your fears on purpose for about 30 minutes and what you can do about them. Don’t dwell on “what-ifs”. Then move on.

• Breathe deeply. It helps your mind and body relax, and sends messages to your brain that you are okay.
