Humor helps. I use mine while backstage before a scene. Hugging helps, but it can get mic cords tangled, so it isn’t always an option. Hugging, pushing on something, for me anxiety is tied to a weight in my chest.

Paris, that’s actually really amazing. Where did you learn all of that stuff? Like, activating the parasympathetic nervous system. I’ve never heard of that before, manually activating it.

I have an... odd... question. Can you see your anxiety? Like, inside of your mind, can you see him?

Psychology and Neuroscience is my passion so anything to do with behaviour and how the body works along with the brain is kind of my thing, a bit nerdy I know but I research and give myself projects for the fun of it so I learn a lot. I'm also a big advocate for self-awareness so the more I can do to increase my self-awareness increases the control I have over my mind and body which helps a great deal with stress and anxiety etc.
Personally, my anxiety is a she or an it, I mostly feel it but when it gets bad it becomes more like another person, I've tried to prevent myself from getting to that stage again so I haven't been like that for awhile.

Human psychology. I’m hoping to be a Psychiatric PA, and work in a hospital

That's awesome! I have close friends who are psychiatrists and it's a really interesting job, it can get a bit heavy sometimes but the work you do really does help and improve people's lives

And I love Psychology tooooo! Have it as a subject, not specialisation but yeah it is.
Also I talk to myself when I am anxious, nervous anything. I take long deep breathes. Splash my face with water. Humour is a really great tool. Then Go ahead and Knock them dead. Cause when you are back up against the wall then the best thing to do is knock the wall down.

When I'm anxious I just think. Thinking helps. Psychology is a cool subject, I'm taking a course in it next year
rydler · 1 week ago
10/10 would recommend. Depends on teacher though.
mrfahrenheit · 1 week ago
Yeah, no idea who the teacher will be. Its part of a Law course I'm doing over the entire year, broken up into modules

That's interesting, will you be doing more of the forensic side then? Forensic-psychology is very different but just as cool career.
