Hi, I'm Meg Wallis, a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker and Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor. At Blackbird Behavioral, we believe in meeting individuals where they are at, providing support and guidance as they navigate through life's most difficult emotions and struggles.

Anxiety can be overwhelming, consuming our thoughts and impacting our daily lives. It can feel like a constant battle, leaving us feeling trapped and unable to find peace. However, I am here to tell you that there is hope. With the right strategies and support, you can break free from anxiety's grip and find inner peace.

Understanding Anxiety

Before we delve into strategies, it's important to understand anxiety. Anxiety is a natural response to stress, but for some, it becomes chronic and debilitating. It can manifest in various ways, including excessive worrying, restlessness, irritability, and physical symptoms such as rapid heartbeat and difficulty breathing.

Anxiety can be triggered by a variety of factors, such as traumatic experiences, genetics, or imbalances in brain chemistry. It's essential to remember that anxiety is not a sign of weakness, and seeking help is a brave and necessary step towards finding peace.

Strategies for Peace

  1. Practice Mindfulness: Mindfulness involves being fully present in the moment, without judgment. By focusing on the present, rather than worrying about the future or ruminating on the past, you can reduce anxiety. Try incorporating mindfulness techniques, such as deep breathing exercises or meditation, into your daily routine.


  2. Challenge Negative Thoughts: Anxiety often stems from negative thoughts and beliefs. Take a step back and evaluate the evidence for these thoughts. Are they based on facts or assumptions? Replace negative thoughts with more realistic and positive ones. Remember, you have the power to control your thoughts.


  3. Engage in Self-Care: Taking care of yourself is crucial when dealing with anxiety. Make sure to prioritize activities that bring you joy and relaxation. This could include exercise, spending time in nature, practicing hobbies, or connecting with loved ones.


  4. Seek Support: You don't have to face anxiety alone. Reach out to a trusted friend, family member, or professional like myself. Therapy can provide a safe space to explore your emotions, develop coping skills, and gain a deeper understanding of yourself.
