Ways to change your life

Now you may or may not be a selfish person at heart but the fact of the matter is that anxiety and depression can make you selfish or at the very least make you seem selfish to others. Do you spend a lot of time wrapped in your own thoughts? Are you consumed by the next possible anxiety related disaster? Then chances are that you’re struggling to get outside of yourself and maybe even having trouble in your personal relationships. However, even if this is the case you can make a change and not only preserve your relationships, but also improve your anxiety symptoms in the process.


  • Practice compassion.
  • Get outside of yourself and literally get outside as well.
  • Communicate positively by being open and not making everything about you or your own problems. But also don’t be afraid to say what kind of support you need.
  • Live in the present. Future thinking and regrets about the past are counterproductive. Make time for loved ones.
  • Make an effort to be with those you love in meaningful ways.
