      On top of breathing exercise sometimes reciting mantras help me to "I am safe. I am exactly where I need to be right now. I am excited for what the future brings" also when alone sometimes just making myself smile for like 10seconds can shift my mood. I noticed regular exercise helps my anxiety too! Warm wishes <3

        @Vela thanks, I try but in the moment it's hard to remember to do a certain skill. I find myself doing one thing like saying "deep breath so you know you can" every once in a while and other times it won't occur to me that saying that might help. My anxietys touchy and annoying

      Calming down breathing by doing inhale for 3 seconds and exhale for 3 seconds. If that doesn't help then I play games on my phone for stress. Video games help me really to forget about anything else. I remind myself that no one's watching me or cares like I think they do and it helps me relax. Or just playing a movie in my mind or a song like daydreaming

        @qveenofthecastles I second this. Box breathing has saved me from many panic attacks.

        @qveenofthecastles box breathing is a great one!!!!! wish i actually started practicing it sooner. i thought breathing to help with anxiety was BS. but wow. if all you’re doing is counting in your head over and over, along with the controlled breathing, it does wonders!!

      This might be bad advice, but I noticed that I give myself signals (I bite myself) when I’m not paying attention to my anxiety. My anxiety is constantly rising, so if I decide to pretend it doesn’t exist, it’ll overwhelm me. Idk if it’ll work, but I’m trying to remember to breathe the second I bite instead of ‘pushing’ through whatever thought process I’m having. No matter what I think where I am at should be affecting me, if I’m biting, I’m going too far. Maybe that’ll help? Idk. I also had a Fitbit for a while that tracked my heart rate. It was at its lowest when I was in a car or playing animal crossing. You can also try to track your heart rate to find what things calm you down too

        @4byfour thanks, i know a lot of coping skills and in the moment reminders, I just find myself using them once then never again or I won't do that one thing that helped for a long time and I'll just cycle through
