I have been having panic attacks daily for the past few months, but my anxiety has been a part of my life for 6 years now.
But, the past couple of nights I have been riding my bike around my neighborhood for a little while by myself. And it really has helped me feel better so far. I look up at the sky and all the stars and I realize how big the world is around us all... I know sometimes it feels hopeless when you have anxiety/panic disorder, but we shouldn't give up on ourselves because we don't deserve it. I'm not saying riding my bike has cured my anxiety, but it has helped me feel relaxed and also I have been doing breathing techniques. I breathe in for 4 seconds, hold it for 7, and exhale for 8 seconds. I keep doing that for a few minutes and really focus on my breath. I know it sounds silly and you probably have read about how much breathing helps, and for a long time I thought I couldn't do it and I didn't really believe in it so I never really gave it a shot until a few days ago. Life is so short and we must remember to take care of ourselves. Find something that will make you feel good, that can take your mind off of things. If you haven't found that something yet, don't give up! Keep moving forward and believe in yourself.
