This website provides connections to volunteer Crisis Counselors 24/7. It provides options to text, chat online, or message on WhatsApp. The resource page at this link also provides information about anxiety and resources for treating anxiety.
Try one or two of the tips below and see how they may help you:
Exercise daily: Even a ten-minute walk daily in the sunlight has been shown to have positive effects on sleep and reducing tension in the body often associated with anxiety and stress.
Decrease lights and cut off electronics: One to two hours before bed, start reducing the lights in your home, and get off electronics when possible. This includes your cell phone, computers, tablets, and video games.
Use blue light blockers: If using electronics before bed, it is best to use blue light blockers or apps to reduce stimulation to the brain that later will negatively affect your sleep.
Drink a warm beverage: Try a hot beverage before bed, such as a non-caffeinated herbal tea, milk, lemon water.
Stretch before bed. For any long slow stretches, listen to your body, don't over-stretch or hurt yourself.
Read a book.
Listen to a calm story or music.
Take a warm shower.
Do not drink caffeinated beverages after 2:00 pm.
