hey there! there are lots of ways to deal with anxiety. however, only you can find what works for you and what doesn't. it's a rough path, but it's a path that will have its results. you have some great recommendations in the comments, i couldn't have said it better myself, so i'm just gonna wish you good luck on your path!

- isolating - binge eating , using food to cope with anxious feelings. just gives me headache and brain fog - staying in bed , it steals time and i will feel guilty after it . i also dont feel better so wasnt helpful

+ nutritious food and force myself to not eat junk as i causes inflammation + exercise burns away tension that has been pent up + go outside , feel more grounded and stop cooping up in room +shower regularly as needed , not stay in a funk + make self presentable , care about my appearance by seeing people or go to exercise +time management , productivity and planning , dont delay or procrastinate on big tasks as the pressure is hard to cope with acutely

im worried about my brain .. the inflammation from poor diet the amount of time i seem to spend mindlessly , for months and the poor habits that i have inability to stop being distracted , everything is to do with my mind and my brain i look and feel a mess from the outside too i wish i wasn't like this + go to a support group . acknowledge your condition and dont isolate yourself with it live in a way that deals with it and helps you thrive

live in awareness of your anxiety + meditation to feel and accept your emotions how am i going to deal with them more healthfully? at least try and not succumb to bad ways of coping which make things worse

+ try 'meditative activities ie doing certain things in a mindful way . pay attention go swimming with a board bodyweight exercise drink water running in the evening , lunge walks yoga physical tend to help me more than painting or piano as it burns off the pent up tension - be more mindful in my bad habits, maybe that can stop them . pause

+ stretching every morning and every night. a few minutes a day that i knew would impact me positively. +i began meditating 10 minutes before bed as well and that would really do wonders for me as, although you aren't supposed to drift off while meditating, the same techniques used to meditate could be employed while laying in bed for maximum relaxation. once i developed the willpower to keep up these smaller habits, i started a + consistent workout routine and that more than anything has kept me going through bouts of depression and flares of anxiety. ~creating these daily traditions is really beneficial in the long run. + "habits" app for android, but any streak tracking app could assist you in committing.
