Quick Coping Skill for Anxiety: Locus of Control Find a Way #WithMe

December 22, 2020
Here’s a quick activity that you can do to cope with anxiety and restore a sense of safety and calm, I do it all the time with my clients in session and you can feel a noticeable difference almost immediately.
This activity is short and simple, but it can really help decrease anxiety or better cope with anxiety. A big part of anxiety and stress is trying to figure out what you should be doing about certain problems. I mean that’s what worry is, right, it’s thinking about a problem over and over to see if you can find another option or another solution.
Coping with Anxiety is all about understanding your locus of control, but the important part is that you draw it- because that does something to help the brain clarify and calm down more than just thinking.
