In celebration of the release of my book, The Anxiety Toolkit, I’ve put together a cheat sheet of 50 strategies you can use for beating anxiety and feeling calmer. The book expands on many of the following techniques, and includes tons more tools, strategies and ways to help anxiety. But this cheat sheet will give you a very solid start if you’re searching for ways to reduce your anxiety and de-stress effectively today.
Not all of these strategies will work for you. Self-experiment to find out which techniques you prefer. Context is important, too. You may find that some strategies work in some circumstances but not in others. Experiment to observe what works best, and when. Also: Try thinking about the strategies in three categories: behavioral, cognitive (thinking-related), and physical. Aim to find some strategies that appeal to you from each category.
Put a letter B, C, or P next to each item to practice identifying whether a strategy is primarily behavioral, cognitive, or physical.
