Great Youth Wellbeing: What can I do when I am experiencing anxiety?
Anxiety is the emotion we experience when we are concerned about the future. We feel that we have no control over the situation. The teenage years are often filled with anxiety because of all the changes young people undergo during this time.
When experiencing anxiety, take time to become mindful of what you think and feel about the situation. BREATHE! Start questioning your beliefs about the situation. Are your beliefs realistic, or are they exaggerated? You then can focus on the things that you can control. Remember, you are always in control of how you respond to a situation.
