I've found a great app for my phone called Dare it's great for anxiety and relaxing this app has been great for keeping my mind off my worries I also draw I've started a journal every night I add 3things I'm grateful for. I put on a nice film and knit and cross stitch this is great to stop my mind wandering 🙂

I know that feeling all too well and the only way I escape is through chilling out and listening to music it helps calm down the anxiety and sometimes stops stress as well
