Many anxiety sufferers find that learning an anxiety exercise or two helps them regain control and calm down when they're feeling stressed. Here's one for you to try:
Whenever you feel a hint of anxiety: fully exhale and empty your lungs, then breathe in to the count of seven, hold your breath for a moment and breathe out for the count of eleven.
Try it, and you'll soon see that controlling your breath really can help you calm your mind.
