This evening, I noticed there was a moth in my kitchen. I have a MAJOR phobia of any kind of bug, and I cannot calm down. This was hours ago. I want to cry, my skin is crawling, and I don’t know what to do. I killed it from a distance, but I’m seriously upset. How can I calm down? I keep my home immaculate at all times for this reason exactly, I do not want bugs anywhere in my home. I know it’s unavoidable, but the goal is to minimize it so I’m constantly cleaning. What can I do to relax?
Anxiety (Including GAD)
Make sure you have bug lights & bug zappers outside your house to keep bugs away.
Go to a safe space, close your eyes, sit quietly & take deep breaths from your belly, in & out. Open your eyes & do some slow stretches. Go back to your eyes & belly breathing after a few minutes of stretching. Focus on something peaceful & beautiful that makes you happy & keep your mind on that. Let your mind play out the scenes as you relax. Allow yourself 20 minutes or more to do this. Hope you feel better.
Thank you so much
That kind of ocd sounds crippling 😢 i tried a float tank and it did miracles also helped unlock n crack my neck in a new place. Very salty but awesome. Usually 1-2 hrs. One love 💜

I can’t fully relate because i do love moths, but I’ve found certain plants/scents keep things away! Peppermint helps with spiders!
