More Tips to Control Your Anxiety
—Grace & Truth Linkup

As 2020 marches on, many of us who struggle with anxiety in normal years are struggling even more this year. Count me in that crowd.

It’s time again for me to be more intentional about my mental health habits.

This week I’ve been asking God to open up more pathways to manage anxiety. I’m adding back in some healthy practices I’d earlier eliminated (see here and here), and deleting a few distractions that had become hindrances.

That’s why this week’s featured post caught my attention.

Cory Armand shares 9 tips to help control anxiety and walk in freedom. He doesn’t promise the elimination of anxiety, but his tips can help us manage it more effectively.

For many, it’s important to see a doctor or therapist to talk it out and/or receive medications that can help.

Cory’s advice isn’t meant to replace a doctor’s advice. However, it can supplement it. And it can benefit those of us dealing with milder cases of anxiety too.

I recommend you read through his list and pick out one or two ideas that might help you, starting with #1: Forgive yourself for your anxiety.

“God made you just the way you are! You are ‘perfectly imperfect’. Anxiety is not a weakness, but it’s simply an imbalanced feeling that is disproportionate to your circumstances. Let yourself be human.”

Read all of Cory’s post here at the blog he writes with his wife Mary, Butterflyliving.org, then link up your own blog posts below.

      This has definitely been a year of heightened anxiety for many of us. I appreciate those who can acknowledge it without making us feel like it’s a lack of faith. Thanks, Rebecca.

      I so appreciate Cory’s willingness to share this part of his story. It is helpful to know that we are never alone with our struggles. And it’s also helpful to hear what helps others, so we can try it too. Blessings to you and Cory too!

    Thank you, Lisa! Cory’s article was great! I often write about anxiety because I struggle with it too. I appreciate his story and his tips are spot on. Especially about forgiving yourself for your anxiety.

      Yes, that tip about forgiving ourselves is one that I added to my own list to help me with anxiety. I appreciate how the Lord brings us different people and different pieces of advice to help us keep our anxiety under control. It can be a beast.
