Does anyine have any tips for calmibg yourself down through a change of routine? My schedule/routine has been all over the place and up in the air for the passed few days and its givin me a lot of anxiety and an unhealthy ammout of masking, its starting to effect my emotions. They have become enormous and very hard to deal with and its all boiling down to anger that I can hardly control. Does anyone have any tips that could help with self regulation? I'd highly appreciate it

      @Zevereth Thank you very much, I never really thought about it that way, changes are very big for me and that something I've never thought of doing, again thank you very much and I will try to follow that mindset from now on

      During times of change, I try to be more mindful while doing the things that didn't change/can't change. That helps anchor the changes a bit and put them in perspective. Sometimes I remind myself that the changes are temporary. Other times, I tell myself things feel weird now but I'm building a new pattern to follow and soon the new will feel normal. For me that means tending the dogs' needs, taking my meds, washing my face, and handwashing dishes because those things have to happen no matter what even if the time changes. So I don't just do the task while mutitasking, I try to keep my attention on it and how normal it feels to do the unchanging thing.

      What works for me is doing something I enjoy & get away from others when possible. Things that help me are music, reading stories I'm interested in, drawing, painting, exercising, crafts, baking, & eating comfort foods (sadly lol 😅). But do what works for you. Oh! And take a relaxing shower or bath if possible, with your favorite scents, water temp the way you like, and/or Epsom salt to help relieve stress.

One suggestion is to focus on hobbies as well as work. If you focus on bad stuff and what triggers, it fuels your overall feeling anxious problems like a fire. Another suggestion is to try starting a garden or a hobby that's interesting to you. You could also schedule yourself to do some writing.
