In brief: Managing anxiety

By learning relaxation skills & learning to modify the thoughts, perceptions & beliefs that trigger your anxiety.
Learning to calm your body & your mind is the key. You can learn these skills on your own, but having a mental health professional "coach" you is quicker & more effective. Biofeedback helps learn relaxation skills (www.Bcia.Org & www.Aapb.Org). Entrenched anxiety may require meds.
