      I listen to music and journal. But I also play the color game like find all the green items in the room. I also play the 54321 game which is breathing while you find 5 things I can see 4 things I can touch 3 things I can hear 2 things I can smell and 1 thing I can taste. The two games I play are also grounding exercises with are particularly useful in anxiety and distrustful situations.

      Coloring, fidget toys, relaxing games on my phone, music and dancing. Otherwise I start playing a color game. Like find a purple item in the store, go through the rainbow increasing the number of items for every color and then add colors like pink, white, brown and black if anxiety is still high after the rainbow.

      Listening to music, lighting some candles, and drawing helps me a lot!

      Breathing techniques- especially diaphragmatic breathing! Whenever I feel overwhelmed i take a deep breath in- feel my belly expanding, and then I breath out for as long as I can.

      Drink water. Get a small fidget toy. Get some mindless games on your phone. Make a list of things that done make you anxious at all and do some activities that include that. Like for me simple math. It’s a problem that is there that I can easily solve and it’s done.

      Dbt is such a powerful tool. Personally I like the app rootd for panic, but it really depends on what works for you.

      Look up DBT distress tolerance worksheets and workbooks ! Lots of them are free, esp on pinterest and stuff. It’s a type of therapy that helps with overwhelming emotions if you don’t have a therapist. It’s all about coping skills and emotional management. It is mostly for trauma or other disorders but can help with anxiety a lott

      Meditation and mindfulness- it’s the ability to be present and aware. It helps me in many life aspects, and in overall well-being
