Anxiety Triggers & Anxiety Soothers

One thing that people don’t always understand is that anxiety can be brought on by certain triggers as well as being a day-to-day struggle. It is common for people with anxiety to have good and bad days. In a previous blog, I talked about how healing is not always linear. You may be having a good day and managing your anxiety well and then a trigger can hit. 

Some common anxiety triggers can be:

  • Past trauma
  • Life transitions
  • Relationship conflicts
  • Negative beliefs
  • Health concerns
  • Alcohol and drugs
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Bullying
  • World events
  • Stressful work environments
  • Changes
  • Racism
  • Finances
  • Responsibilities 

Some anxiety soothers can be:

  • Spending time outdoors
  • Setting boundaries
  • Self-compassion
  • Mindfulness
  • Meditation
  • Hydration
  • Consistent sleep
  • Exercise
  • Recognizing your worth
  • Connecting with friends and family
  • Balanced nutrition
  • Deep breathing
