Practice the A-B-C-D Method
To manage your anxiety, Dr. Erinna suggests trying the A-B-C-D method, a mental check-in you can do with yourself. "A: Be aware of your anxiety. B: Be with your feelings of anxiety and be present in the moment. C: Check the message of your anxiety. What are you anxious about? Where is the anxiety showing up in your body? What does your anxiety tell you to do? D: Decide what to do. Is it enough to just acknowledge your feelings, or should you take some other action?" Dr. Erinna said.
