Anxiety can often be complex. Everyone experiences anxiety slightly differently and for different reasons. Understanding your specific mental health issues and anxiety will be significant in learning how to work through them.

Mental health issues can feel complicated and even overwhelming. You may not fully understand why you are feeling as you are feeling. As a result, you may choose to work with a mental health professional to begin your healing journey. They can help you to better understand your mental health issues and learn the best skills to help you achieve your goals. As you begin that healing journey, here are a few different ways you can start to better understand your anxiety.

Keep a Journal

Keeping a journal can help you gain a better understanding of your behavioral patterns. Seeing and understanding patterns within your behaviors and emotions can help you learn your triggers. When you understand your triggers, you can better learn how to work through them.

Practice Mindfulness

Staying in the moment may help you to better understand when you feel the most anxious. Try to acknowledge the emotions you are experiencing as you experience them. Take note of what you are doing or who you are with.

Intervene in the Moment

Learning specific skills and tools to work through your anxiety as it happens can be powerful. Many people who experience severe anxiety find themselves avoiding certain situations or activities because of the anxiety that may occur. Working with a therapist to learn the best skills to address and relieve your anxiety in the moment will be helpful. Doing so will allow you to continue with any activity or situation you want to participate in.

Do Not Fear Asking for Help

Having support as you work through any struggle in life can be very beneficial. Strong support can help you feel more confident and secure in your ability to face your struggles head-on. In addition to professional support from a therapist, you should also surround yourself with friends and family members who will help you to feel safe and supported.

Everyone experiences anxiety slightly differently and learning what works best for you to feel better is key. Stay in the moment and acknowledge what you feel as you feel it.
