What's the best advice for coming down after a small anxiety attack at work? I'm mostly trying to stop crying

      after i have a small anxiety attack i'll normally take a good 10-15 minute break to drink some water and do something that'll help take my mind off it. for ex. drawing, watching vines or other stupid videos for nostalgia, or listening to some music. sometimes i'll also do a few activities on the finch app like the breathing ones.

      I do the 5 senses method. It helps me ground myself. 1 thing I can see, 1 thing I can touch, 1 thing I can hear, 1 thing I can smell, and one thing I can taste. For each one I really focus and fixate on the sensation. I also carry gum and dented hand sanitizer for this exact reason.

      Ive learned a lot about herbal and plant remedies over the years and they have helped me, personally, IMMENSELY. In the interest of not being peer pressure-y i wont say which have worked very well for me, just that I highly recommend looking into plant medicine that targets anxiety responses/ calming ourselves down. Specifically after an anxiety attack. I totally feel you! The worst when it happens at work too.

      After anxiety attacks I like to just talk to a friend that I am most comfortable with. If I can't do that then I try to find things to focus on like videos and such. Writing things in a journal is nice too

      put something cold like an ice pack on your chest or wrist, inner elbow, or inner thigh for 15 minutes or as long as you can. You got through it! You can do this !
