How to calm Your self down in a stressful situation

    Hi @EvolveSeagull86, welcome to our community :) I think you will find some company here when it comes to dealing with stress and anxiety. Different techniques can work for different people, Mind actually has some great resources on different ways to tackle some of these different, but connected, things.

    That last link covers a wide range of possible issues, just incase there's anything else you'd be interested in reading :smile:

    For myself though, I personally don't often struggle in the moment so to say. It's the aftermath where I need to take time to process what's happened. If I do happen to be overwhelmed with a lot of things at once the best thing for me is to either; talk to someone and help me break everything down; or to write things down/talk to an object (or my cat) to help me work through things at a slower pace. Because actually talking slows my thinking down, otherwise it can race and become a bit much.

    I hope some of this helps anyway! I hope you'll find out what works for you and maybe share that with us sometime!
    They/Them, however they are no wrong pronouns with me so whatever you feel most comfortable with
