Default How do you deal with anxiety?

I have been living with extreme social anxiety and school can be overwhelming sometimes. Do you have any tips to unwind or relax? Any tips would be great!

People always suggest deep breathing for calming down. Another idea would be to imagine a place that you consider calming.

I don't know how that would work for extreme anxiety. Would you consider a counselor or therapist to help you along?

Depression, Loss and Grief Anxiety

Since your question is about anxiety, it fits better in this area.

With me, Ive just sorta spent the past few years telling myself "it's gonna be okay" and establishing self confidence, and that's what helps a lot. Even if something hurts or my anxiety ramps up, nothing is more supportive than hearing your own little voice in your head say "you can do it " sound cliche but it's true. Also, music tends to help a lot. Keep a pair of earbuds on you at all times if you can, maybe even splurge for a wireless pair to be sneaky when you need it.

As much as I'd like to say I've got my shit together, I don't, yet I'm still having the time of my life
