Tips On How To Hide Your Anxiety

There are some situations where showing your anxiety may not be welcome. School, work, and meeting new acquaintances may all be uncomfortable places and times to let your stress get out of hand.

When deep breathing exercises can’t completely reduce your anxiety, learning to hide your anxiety can be a valuable asset.

Relax

When you feel an anxiety attack coming on, close your eyes and picture yourself on a beach, or in another relaxing setting. Control your breathing and give your body a gentle rubdown. Visualizing yourself relaxing while taking a few deep breaths can make a huge difference in controlling anxiety.

Recognize the Cause

Recognizing why you’re feeling anxious can help you relieve your anxiety. If the room is too crowded, remove yourself from the situation; step outside for a quick breath of fresh air. If it’s a specific task at work, ask a trusted coworker if she can help by taking on a part of the project. When you take control of what’s causing your anxiety you’ll feel more powerful over it.

Prepare and Prevent

If you know you’re prone to anxiety, be prepared for stressful incidents to occur. Take measures beforehand to help prevent your anxiety causes from happening. Talking to a therapist, getting regular exercise, and eliminating stressors in your life can all help ease your anxiety disorder.
