    Hi there 

    I dont really have any tips 

    Can you identify what makes you anxious? Try doing something different to take your mind off it like listening to music , have a relaxing bath , reading , cooking or a craft . Some people find colouring relaxing 

    Consult your gp if it continues

    Welcome back! How are your online studies going?

    Sorry to hear you feel anxious, have you spoken with your GP about this to try and explore why you might be feeling that way?  You might find this self-care for anxiety page helpful, it's from Mind.

    @Cressida @ross2503 @Sandy_123 @janer1967 hi I want to say thank you for your help and comments I will give headspace ago and few things to do. But is it really normal to get anxious over nothing?

    Some people get anxious some people dont and some that do manage to learn ways of dealing with it 

    You just have to find the root of the cause and what works best for you

    As Janer1967 has said, everyone experiences anxiety differently @ssutton1998. I'd say that it'd be worth speaking to your GP if the level of anxiety you're experiencing is bothering you, or if you can't identify a cause for it. 

    Are you studying through a school, college, or university etc.? Is there anyone who you could speak to?

    Hi @ssutton1998. I am sorry about the way you’re feeling, it’s very unnerving.  The fact that we are living through a pandemic is enough to make anyone anxious.  Try not to be hard on yourself, there doesn’t have to be hard reason to have anxiety.  I can assure you’re not alone.  Take care.

    I think that's a good idea @ssutton1998. They can help you to formulate some next steps. The reasons behind feeling anxious can often be complex, and might not be obvious or 'make sense' at first. As Welshjayne2021, the pandemic has also had an effect on many people's mental health, so it could be a bit of that too. 

    Is there anyone at college you could speak to, such as a school counsellor, a teacher you get along with, or a welfare officer?

    Hi @ssutton1998

    We haven't spoken yet, but I spotted your post and I just wanted to catch up with you to see how you're doing? 

    Have you managed to try out any of self-care for anxiety tips yet? Did you speak to your GP about the way that you've been feeling? I know that you said you were seeing them last week - were they able to help?

    I think @Tori_Scope's idea is a really good one, as well - is there anybody at your college that you could speak to about the anxiety that you might be feeling in relation to your work? On a personal note, I know that I found my Uni counsellor to be really helpful and understanding when I was a student and I experienced feelings of anxiety.

    Hope you're also managing to take a bit of a break over the bank holiday weekend. You need to take some time out to rest, alongside the studying!

    Anyway, we're here if you need us. Do please keep in touch and let us know how you're getting on :)
