Anxiety can feel all-consuming and can affect every single area of a person’s life. More than ever, people are experiencing a sense of anxiety in the reopening of society following the pandemic. You can now go to an amusement park, hop on a plane, or head to a waterpark. While for many people, this is exciting, for others, this can cause anxiety levels to heighten dramatically. Learning how your anxiety works is a great way to begin learning how to live with it. Almost everyone experiences some level of anxiety throughout life. However, when this anxiety begins to disrupt daily life, it may be time to reach out for help. Here are a few tips to keep in mind as you start your journey to better understand and work through your anxiety. 


Acknowledge Your Comfort Level


Various activities will bring you different comfort levels. Acknowledge your comfort levels as you experience events and situations. What circumstances make your anxiety heighten? What situations make you uneasy? When you can determine your triggers, you can learn to work through them.


Start With Manageable Goals


As society reopens and you are faced with anxious thoughts about getting back into social activities, try to make manageable goals. You do not need to go to large state fairs or huge amusement parks if they make you anxious. Set smaller goals to help you feel more comfortable going out, like going to a mall or for a meal in a restaurant. 


Accept Support


Whether you reach out to a mental health professional or loved ones, accepting support and help is always positive. When faced with stressful situations, it can be a comfort to be surrounded by those we love. The pandemic has affected people very differently. Where some people did not appear to be mentally affected, others were greatly affected. Do not feel ashamed if you are experiencing the re-opening of society differently than others.
