Distractions of all kind, stay in the present, don't worry for the future (hard to do though), don't regret the things that happened in the past....I think these are extremelly important when we go through the w/d or post w/d process...pushing the worries down the road is what we have to do now.

Physical exercise.  I've dumped a ton of anxiety just by doing two sets of push-ups.  Also, you have to learn to just "sit" with your anxiety.  Don't judge it, don't fear it, just "be" with it.  That takes some of its power away.

WORD! imadavea
I get on my bike and ride. Some days I can only do 25 miles but most days I do 36 miles. I fight anxiety with getting my heart rate up.
My bike is my only vehicle...(if you were questioning how I do that daily).

I also agree to "sit with the anxiety" it might be uncomfortable but breathing deep and knowing the episode will last a few minutes.

Also, housework. My house has never been so clean and I am on game with the laundry...So Distraction is a good one too.

Guided meditations for deep relaxation on YouTube have been very helpful to me.  I use them mostly after work when I can really let go of my day and let my body relax.

Trying to live with it eventually takes my focus off.
