I’d like to invite you to create an anxiety management plan.
I’ve compiled a list of things in each topic that I’ve found particularly helpful. If you have additions, feel free to contribute via reblog or reply.
Something to touch:
Fleece blanket
Keys 
Necklace chain
Something to See:
Picture books
Photo Album
Digital folder of calming/comforting pictures
Puzzles
Something to Hear:
Rainymood.com
Relax Melodies
Youtube Playlists
Instrumentals
Something to Smell (if applicable):
Scented candles
Lotions
Certain objects in room (i.e. pillow, blanket, etc)
Something to Taste:
Mints
Hard Candies
Oral sensory objects

Calming Techniques and Other Stuff
Rocking - allows brain to re-hydrate; so-called “Instinctual” soothing method
Feel-Your-Seat - Quite literally. What are you sitting on? What does it feel like? How is your body responding to you sitting?
Belly-Breathing - Place one hand on your chest and one hand on your belly. Take slow, deep breaths focusing on making sure your belly hand raises higher when you breathe in. Do this for seven counts.


Anyone have any more?
