Did you know that anxiety is the most common mental health issue we counsel? Here is our first tip: Throughout your day, whether driving or walking through the halls of your house, tell yourself to Slow Down. Drive a little bit slower; walk through your house slower. Continually practicing this will help reduce anxiety.

Our second tip: know that anxiety never learns from experience. For example, you feel anxious on Sunday because of work the following morning and then feel relief on Monday night. And this happens every week! Telling yourself that you will feel relief helps reduce anxious feelings.

Our third and final tip: It does not mean something wrong is happening in your life if you do not know what to do. You are designed to trust in God; therefore, trusting is not a bad practice. Practice trusting God with food and water during your day, and then try with finances, relationships, and career goals.
