A key point in that podcast was getting familiar with your chosen techniques before you need them. In other words, fitting practice points into your day where you can master anxiety breathing techniques, or another tool of your choice.
In this post I want to share some more techniques and some more places where you can practice them without having to feel like you’re cramming something else in to your busy day.

You probably already feel too busy to make time, that's OK. The key to anxiety management is in changing time. You can use the time you already have and transform it, and doing so will change the quality of your life.
Waiting in queues is a great time to practice these techniques too, since these are invisible calming practices that you can do without anyone noticing.
If you carry an ipod with you - or a phone that can play mp3 files - you could listen to our podcast on grounding techniques and try a simple exercise that can help you control anxiety and keep relaxed and peaceful during your busy day.
In the list below you’ll find some other self help anxiety tools that can help you turn waiting time into an Anxiety Slayer training session that will help you feel calm and in control:
Since writing this post and receiving feedback from many people who are looking for ways to fit a few minutes calm into their busy day we have created a collection of guided relaxations and soothing music for the iTunes music store.
The collection is called Transition to Calm and is all about being able to unwind and relax even if you can only grab a few minutes. The beauty of iTunes is the ease of downloading and the advantage of having some audio support on your iPhone or iPod so you can carry it with you wherever you go.
We hope you will take a moment to preview our collection and wish you a beautiful transition to calm...
