Find the right tool to help you
Once you have explored the causes of your worry or anxiety then it is time to do something. Knowing what causes you to worry or to be anxious is the first step. While you may not always be able to change the cause of your worry or anxiety there are many things you can do to help you feel better.
You will find there are some tools that work for everything on the anxiety scale – for worry, fear and anxiety disorders. Some tools work when you are simply feeling a bit unsettled and some work if you are feeling completely undone.
Maybe one tool will suit you more than another and sounds like it is something you would like to try, or maybe there are several tools you can try. You don’t have to try them all. Choose the tools that feel right for you.
