Positive Self Care – A Checklist

I saw this Daily Anxiety Checklist and wanted to share. You can use this at the end of each day to take inventory of what went well and what didn’t go well.  This is a great way to increase awareness for and begin to break the cycle of behaviors that may be increasing anxiety.

Essentially, you can begin to practice resilience for difficult emotions and situations, building confidence that you CAN deal with what life throws at you.

As someone who has struggled with anxiety, I can competely speak to the effectiveness of focusing on YOU and how YOU react.  You have no control over the actions of others, what they do and how they react.  Begin to set boundaries between what you have control over and what you don’t.  Let go of the what you can’t control, while working to become your own best supporter.

I hope this helps!
