Good morning everyone!
Just a little short post today, because I wanted to share with you the anxiety tracker I have created for myself. I’ve been struggling with anxiety a little more than usual recently, and wanted to keep an eye on it so I can see what I need to work on. I made this simple tracker, and all I have to do is colour in the boxes!
Here’s an example of how to fill it in:
It has room to fill in:
The time you feel anxious (AM, PM, or LN for late at night aka those 2am worry sessions!)
Trigger – I’ll just put a little icon in here, for example college as above
Hours of sleep and quality of sleep – was your sleep disturbed, did you have nightmares?
Eating – are you eating the usual amount, or more/less?
Weather – again just an icon. Weather can have a big impact on mood for some people, so it will be interesting for me to track this
Where you alone?
Did you have a migraine? I suffer from these often, so again it will be good to keep track
Symptoms: shaking, heart racing, fatigue and so on
Did you stay in bed? I tend to hide when I’m anxious so I want to keep track so I can challenge this!
Resolution – did you resolve the issue in a healthy way (tick) or use avoidance or have a breakdown etc (cross)
And finally, did you go to college or work or take a day off? A simple Y/N box
I’m hoping this will help me understand my increased anxiety a little more and begin to manage it. I hope it can help you too!
You can get through this!
Love and hugs,
