How to Beat Anxiety for QTS Students. Tip #1 - Beat the xxxxxx out of a pillow.

Things are starting to get serious. I get you. You're busy. Maybe, you have essays to hand in. Maybe, you're on placement. Maybe, you're juggling a family.

Right, let's get down to the nuts and bolts of the matter.

Are you simply putting this test off because you are feeling ANXIOUS.

Let me tell you a story.

2 years ago I hit rock bottom after separating from someone I loved dearly. In fact, in a matter of days we're about to get divorced

It was an anxious time.

Here are 5 things that helped me go from anxiety to happiness.

Traveling. A Dutch girl I met on the Camino de Santiago said ‘I knew something was wrong, when I stopped moving’. She made a simple mistake and hit and killed an elderly Turkish man in her car. She started moving again in a big way: she walked from Holland to France. She's my hero.

Living and working with a Buddhist for 4 months. What beautiful gifts: laughter, smiling, being heard.

Yoga: breathing steadily, steadying the mind, smiling whilst doing a pose, falling on my ass.

The simple realization that getting anxiety was a complete and utter waste of time. Instead, I am proactive, have life missions and bloody well….hope for the best.

A handful of books on entrepreneurship, weirdly, helped me to understand I needed look at myself as a system: my body, my mind, my work and figure out what I have to change for things to start functioning properly again. In order to concentrate, I need to eat well. In order to hear someone, I need to be well rested. The rest looks after itself. So far, it’s working.

Here are some things you can do today if you feel like I did

=> Read these books:
1. Being of Power, Baron Baptiste
2. Work the System, Sam Carpenter
3. 7 habits of highly effective people, Stephen Covey. If you have a family, this book is beautiful: 7 habits of highly effective families

Maths Anxiety 1
Maths Anxiety 2

=> Start moving.

=> Watch Ajham Brahm’s videos.

=> Do yoga

=> Kick the shit out of a pillow. Or ask someone to hold one and twist it as hard as you can until you burst into tears.

Feeling better? How do you beat Anxiety - comment below.
