Trying not to procrastinate or do things that make my anxiety worse
I find that organisation is key! my mental health declines when I'm stressed and everthing becomes overwhelming. that's why I find just doing little things like planning meals, organising my bedroom so its a clean, tidy space helps me feel calm.
I have an Instagram page called homeofastudent that I have just started to help give little tips and tricks on making student life just that little bit easier!❤️
I think the worst thing you can do is avoid it, push it down/ away, pretend it isn't happening. It won't go away, it will just sit there and keep creating issues. It won't go away. It's much better to face it in yourself, even if it's scary or worrying. If you can get away from others and be in a safe place, think about it and let yourself feel what you feel. Don't beat yourself up about it. You're allowed to feel, to care, to be scared, to feel whatever you feel. Forgiving yourself is the first step, forgiving others is much more difficult, but you don't need to rush, you can take your time.
Good luck to you all :-)
