The Best Cure for Stress & Anxiety

The best cure for your stress and anxiety is the support of your family and friends, yes sometimes they are annoying and get on your nerves, but they are here to support you and your journey in coping. I know from my experiences that my family and friends are here to support me no matter what, and that I can go to them for anything. Having a strong relationship with family and friends allows you to relax and know someone is looking out for you. Your closest relationships notice the slightest of changes in mood and know when something is wrong so if you are feeling down, then just talking to them is the best medicine. But there are some out there with no support and that is ok, there are lots of organisations out there, that provide a private, free phone call service in which they give you ideas and ways to cope with whatever you may be facing.

Here are some of the best organisations I have come across:

  • Beyond Blue is Australia’s most well-known and visited mental health organisation who focus on supporting people affected by anxiety, depression and suicide. Call 1300 22 4636, 24 hours/7 days a week, chat online or email.
  • KidsHelpline is Australia’s only free, private, and confidential 24/7 phone and online counselling service for young people aged 5 to 25. Counselling is offered by phone 1800 55 1800, Webchat and Email.
  • Butterfly Foundation’s National Helpline is a free, confidential service that provides information, counselling and treatment referral for people with eating disorders, and body image and related issues. Call 1800 33 4673, 8am-midnight AEST/ 7 days a week, chat online or email.
  • eheadspace provides free online and telephone support and counselling to young people 12 – 25 and their families. Call 1800 650 890, 9am – 1am AEST / 7 days a week, chat online or email.
  • FriendLine supports anyone who’s feeling lonely, needs to reconnect or just wants a chat. You can call them 7 days a week on 1800 424 287, or chat online with one of their trained volunteers anonymously.

Sometimes talking to others about what is going on is hard. So just taking the time to relax and be calm is what some people find effective, like writing down their feelings. Writing down your feelings can help you to understand what you are going through and cope easily. Luckily there are free worksheets to help you get started, and since I love these kinds of worksheets, I have created one just for you! Click Below to download!

Stay Bright and Happy! Come back for more posts!
