TBE #052: 5 Things you can do when you’re Feeling Anxious

Today on the Balanced Educator Podcast, we’re sharing 5 simple and quick things you can do when you’re feeling anxious to help you get back to feeling calm.

The strategies that we explain are :

  1. Belly breathing – Place both hands on your belly and feel it fill up like a balloon as you inhale and empty out when you exhale.
  2. Essential oils – Keep some calming essential oils in your desk, like cedarwood or lavender and in moments of stress, place a drop in your hands, rub them together and take in the smell.
  3. Legs up the wall – Lie on the floor close to a wall and bring your legs up onto the wall. This pose really helps with relaxation and calming the body.
  4. Affirmations – Practice saying an affirmation in your mind over and over again to help you feel less stressed and anxious, like “I am calm and balanced”.
  5. Think of something for which you’re grateful to help you focus on the positive in your life.
