If you’re reading this, you might have anxiety or have experienced anxious thoughts and emotions. Let me start off by saying, you are not alone. Everyone feels anxious in some degree. Some people experience a very mild and situational anxiety, while others struggle with severe panic attacks. No matter what area you fall into, there are natural ways to help alleviate your pain.
sketch by Andrea Price Many of us have seen a therapist or a psychologist at some point in our lives, and there is absolutely nothing to feel embarrassed about. In fact, it is brave, productive, and shows you are eager to move forward. We all manage our emotions differently, but I am a believer of speaking it out loud. Once feelings are voiced, you should hold yourself accountable to acknowledge it and if needed, take action.
In the words of Sam Smith, “I know I’m not the only one”….Cold weather gives me the blues. Anyone else relate? I am usually a very happy, positive and outgoing personality, but I have to be honest, winter brings me down a bit. I love everything about the idea of winter, especially leading up to the holidays….hot chocolate, coffee shops with fireplaces, big fuzzy socks, delicious wintery soups, and cozy oversized sweaters. That all sounds wonderful until it drops to below freezing temperatures and the wind gets so strong it feels like it’s cutting you.
