I needed a revival, and it required calling in the troops. Here are the steps I took to address my anxiety.
What I did:
See a Professional. The first step I took was getting in weekly Counseling. I had past wounds I needed to properly process along with learning to cope and manage my anxiety while I was working through things. Counseling and Therapy has been put in a box of weakness for far too long. You can read about my time here.
CBD. I started taking CBD oil every day. (Grab the brand I’ve used for years below or use 20% off with the code AMANDACOKER20 here) I opted out of anxiety meds–which is totally a personal decision. It probably would’ve made my process quicker, but it just wasn’t the route I chose to go.
I think CBD oil is often misunderstood and miscatagorized because it comes from a Cannibas plant.
Create Margin. I pulled out of weekly extra curricular responsibilities.
Delegate. I hired an office manager/assistant who took over all things admin. I started clearing my plate of certain responsibilities that someone else could do.
Say No. I stopped saying feeling guilty for saying no, and started saying no…a lot. I took social situations a day at a time, and decided last minute if I had the capacity to go.
Be Still. I went to meditation classes and started incorporating yoga and meditation into my mornings.
Talk About It. I started trying to vocalize emotions to a select few as much as I could.
Address the Physical. Anxiety is a physical reaction to stress or unresolved emotional wounds, and if unaddressed, is detrimental to your body. I started working with a hormone coach and overhauled my diet to help repair the damage anxiety had done to my body.
All the information I share is based solely on my own health journey in hopes to raise awareness and give you the courage to take a step towards health. For any further advice, please contact a trusted professional who is trained in mental health.
