Handling Anxiety

Tell a trusted family member or friend about your anxiety. They can listen and support you, which can help you feel better.

Continue doing activities you enjoy like sports, clubs, or other healthy activities. Taking your mind off anxious thoughts helps you to enjoy life more.

Use positive self-talk. Have a conversation with yourself about your worries. You can do this inside your head or out loud in a private space. Notice your feelings, try to accept them and be positive towards yourself.

Talk to your school guidance counsellor, doctor, staff at a Teen Clinic, social worker, nurse or other trusted person.
