Step outside

Change your scenery. Sometimes anxiety creeps up just because you forgot to look at the sky. Even if it’s raining, step outside, look up at the sky, take a deep breath in, and wonder if anyone else is doing the same thing as you.

Become a hippie for a few minutes. Sit under a tree. Hug that tree. Appreciate how long that tree has been there. Appreciate its beauty. Find its scars and appreciate the tree’s resilience. Read a book under the tree. Listen to the wind rustle leaves. Listen to the birds that live in the tree.
