I have been pretty anxious this week. My nerves usually manifest themselves as chest pain. I took to Twitter for some advice while I was at work because the tension was building up in my chest. The responses were humorous and helpful!
@GeekyHooker: Grab a warm beverage. Sometimes spiked with a shot of liquor. :P
@anitakc: Put myself in a different environment and work on something else. Do things that make me happy. Eat cupcakes!
@Edw1nS1984: eat. or take medication. Depends on how bad the nerves are.
@tomfromhr: It may sound weird, but coffee. The ritual of it helps me.
@indeedemma: @tomfromhr @curious_notions I agree w/ the ritual but w/ tea. And a lie down. And the ol’ breathe slowly in through the nose, out the mouth
@AshleyD: Breathe in for 4 seconds, hold for 4 seconds, and breathe out for 4 secs. Repeat as needed. One of my favorite tricks! :)
@KristenCurator: I literally write CALM DOWN about a zillion times on a piece of paper. It actually helps
@pixie658: Stop what I’m doing. Ask myself if I’ve eaten & if I’d had enough sleep. Remedy those. Crying helps. Xanax for emergencies.
@girlfrmmars: …Wine. haha.
Question: What do you do to calm your nerves?
