How to Create a Daily Self-Care Routine When You Are Struggling With Anxiety?

When you are struggling with anxiety, it is not something that happens to you every
once in a while in most cases. The majority of people deal with anxiety on a regular
basis, often at least once a day. Instead of letting it consume you, learn how to cope
with your anxiety by creating a self-care routine.

– Why Self-Care?

Self-care might seem like a trend, but it is much more than that. Yes, it has increased in
popularity recently, but the core of self-care is about doing things for yourself that will
make you a healthier, happier, and more balanced person.

For anxiety, self-care helps tremendously. It is going to help reduce your stress, which
ultimately helps with anxiety as well. You also learn tips and tricks for coping with your
anxiety based on how you adjust your daily self-care routine, whether that means
reducing anxiety triggers or finding healthy distractions when you tend to have
heightened anxiety or panic.

– What to Include in the Routine?

Like most things, what works in one person’s daily self-care routine might not work for
you. However, here are some ideas of what can be helpful:

  • Switch to a healthy breakfast – Taking good care of your body will also help you to take
    care of your mind. Everything is connected, so start your day right with a healthy and
    nutritious breakfast.
  • Write in your journal daily – Writing in a journal provides a long list of benefits when you
    have anxiety. You can write out any thoughts or fears you have, and actually get to the
    core of why you feel this way.
  • Use a daily planner – Planners allow you to reduce some stress and anxiety over the
    fear of missing out, or feeling like you are always forgetting to do something. Many
    people with anxiety find that structure is beneficial.

– Customizing it for Your Needs ?

If you start a self-care routine, and parts of it just aren’t helping you, don’t do it!
Journaling isn’t for everyone, and some people love baths at night, while others don’t
enjoy them at all. You really want to customize this for your own needs, preferences,
and schedule.

Pick a time of day when you tend to have a little more time to yourself, whether that is
right when you wake up, before bed, or in the middle of the day during your lunch break.

Everything you want to add to your routine has to be something you really need, and which you are not going to stop doing.

See you soon,


Success! You're on the list.
