Whenever I get anxiety I eat trying to comfort myself/feel better because I always get myself so worked up. But lately I've been getting them everyday which means I've been eating tons more every day which is making me not lose the weight I need to. I am planing to see a therapist in a month but until then what do I do!? I've tried teas, and meditation but I'm constantly in a panic and the ony think that seems to help is eating because I usually eat like dark chocolate which is comforting
try something else than eating, especially things that keep your mind busy as well as your hands - for example drawing or knitting or writing (eg write down your feelings when you’re anxious) or reading, whatever you like and whatever distracts you. idk if you already do, but working out always makes me feel less stressed, especially doing yoga. yoga and working out is honestly what calms me down most.
don’t be so harsh to youself, give yourself time i know handling anxiety is hard, but i’m sure it will get better! x if you want to talk, i’m always here to listen to you, on anon or in private.
