I’m moving to a different state soon. How do I manage my anxiety about the big change?

      soon enough, this new space will feel welcome to you. remember that. take small steps. when you think about all the change, try not to get overwhelmed by the big picture and focus more on the smaller things. focus on what you can do to help the move go smoothly, make sure to stay grounded, try journaling or recording your thoughts somehow if that helps you. this one helps me: rate your anxiety, write down the worst outcome, what you can do to cope, find evidence against the worst outcome, think about a more likely outcome, and then re-rate your anxiety about it.

      Good luck on the move! That’s so exciting! Maybe create a Yelp bookmarks list, download the app Pluto and the app Fotospot, and start building a super fun itinerary of all the new places to go to and explore in your new HOME! You’re gonna have so much fun! Restaurants, bars, coffee shops, touristy spots, art spaces, arcades, museums, and all that jazz. Look up local events and community classes to go to. Maybe plan on taking a walking tour around your new area to appreciate the history and learn a bunch. They usually invoke a lot of pride into the area which will set you off on the right foot!

      Maybe you could try your best to think about all the new things you'll see and try and being able to move away from your old anxiety of this old state I really hope this big move goes well for you goodluck
