Anxiety Recovery Tips and Strategies

Anxiety is a troubling condition and one that rarely goes away on its own. Anxiety is too complicated to simply wish away, and in some cases, you may find that your anxiety fuels itself.

A large part of maintaining your anxiety gains is about realistic expectations, using what you've learned, and the mindset you have after you recover. Consider the following:
