Thinking about behaviours
What do you do when you feel the anxiety or the worry?

What helped you cope and get through it?
What didn’t you do or what did you avoid doing?
What were the consequences of what you did? Did it affect the way you felt later?

Now ask yourself, what could you have done differently?
What would someone else have done in that situation? (it might help to think about particular people that you know)

If I had paused, and taken a breath, what would I have done?
Write down several options that you might have done differently if it had occurred to you, then ask yourself:
If I had tried that, how would the situation have been different?
How would it have affected what you felt?
How would it have affected what you thought?
Practising breathing
