Three Tricks for Dealing with Anxiety

LIFEHACKER HAS Three Tricks for dealing with anxiety.  I like this one, which many singers summarize as being present: “Remember that anxiety is typically future-oriented, concerned with all the catastrophes that might happen. By describing your surroundings, you ground yourself in the present, preventing your anxiety from escalating any further. Before long, you’re not noticing your racing heart or your trembling hands quite as much. Once you’ve settled down a bit, you can then redirect your attention to what you’re supposed to be doing.”
