Do you experience social anxiety? At Life Resolutions, we know that anxiety is hard to deal with, and it can seriously impact your daily life. Our Director, Jodie Brenton works to make anxiety and social anxiety support easily accessible. Our Principal Psychologist, Mary Magalotti, and our team of psychologists aim to provide effective and compassionate care to those suffering from social anxiety.
Here are some tips from Mary Magalotti
Tips and Tricks
Practice Breathing Exercises – When your breathing and heart rate quickens, try to control your breathing with deep, steady breaths. This will also lower your heart rate, and help you stay calm.
Reframe Your Thoughts – When you notice the feelings of anxiety starting, try to recognise your negative thoughts for what they are – try to understand that your perception is not necessarily reality. Take a moment to acknowledge these thoughts, then move on.
Use Your Senses – Take the time to count one thing you can see, one thing you can hear, and one thing you can smell. This is called grounding and can help you refocus on the world around you, rather than your anxiety.
If you’re struggling, Mary Magalotti and the Life Resolutions psychology team encourage you to reach out today. Our friendly psychologists can help you learn more tips and tricks to manage and overcome anxiety.
