Instructions
Write down your worries. Keep a pad and pencil on you, or type on a laptop, smartphone, or tablet. When you experience anxiety, write down your worries. Writing down is harder work than simply thinking them, so your negative thoughts are likely to disappear sooner. Create an anxiety worry period. Choose one or two 10 minute worry periods each day, time you can devote to anxiety. During your worry period, focus only on negative, anxious thoughts without trying to correct them. The rest of the day, however, is to be designated free of anxiety. When anxious thoughts come into your head during the day, write them down and postpone them to your worry period. Accept uncertainty. Unfortunately, worrying about all the things that could go wrong doesnít make life any more predictable it only keeps you from enjoying the good things happening in the present. Learn to accept uncertainty and not require immediate solutions to lifeís problems.
A variety of medications, including benzodiazepines and antidepressants, are used in the treatment of anxiety disorders. But medication is most effective when combined with behavioral therapy and anxiety self help strategies. Medication may sometimes be used in the short term to relieve severe anxiety symptoms so that other forms of therapy can be pursued.
