9 Things You Can Do To Help An Anxious Person
Do you ever get the feeling that someone you are spending time with is feeling anxious? Here are some things that you can do naturally and subtly in everyday situations at home, at work, or out and about without it being obvious why you are doing them. I hope this will be a good starting point to guide you in what you can do to help someone feel better if you suspect they are feeling anxious.

There’s no doubt that spending time around animals can be therapeutic, and as a cat owner, I can attest to that. My cat is a sweet, shy girl who is nervous around new people at first, but when you get to know her, she is friendly and loving. We have a special bond and she has 100% had a positive impact on my mental health over the years. In this post, I am going to explore the mental health benefits of owning a pet, whether you struggle with anxiety, depression or any other mental health issue.

In this post, I will share with you some of my ways of dealing with pre-performance anxiety and nerves. By performance, I am talking about any situation where you have to ‘perform’ that you are anxious about. This could include a concert, a rehearsal, a sports match, a social occasion, a meeting, or a public speech. I often find that I get more anxious in the lead up to events than I do during the events themselves. Once I am in the situation, the anxiety normally fades after a while.
