The worst part of anxious situations is waiting for the outcome.
Whats a good way to deal with it? Good distractions? Sticking too them? How to keep low anxiety levels? Any sentiments?
To me I think rational thinking works best, and sticking to distractions. but sometimes the emotions and irrational thoughts can outweigh the good. what methods do you use overcome your anxious struggles/keep your cool?

I like a form of meditation that brings me into the present moment
it is walking or sitting in nature and just allow yourself to be an observer of your thoughts -don't judge them as good or bad
and realize that these thoughts are not you
before (and still presently for I am learning )
I was looking at the present moment through the eyes of my 'emotional past '
and that made me feel very anxious
once you begin to separate yourself from your 'story' you will see the anxiety decrease

One of the best distractions that helps me is hanging out with my friends or playing an addictive video game.

A few weeks ago I used a combination of two techniques to great, great effect. I have been struggling with debilitating anxiety for some years now. I have tried Dr. Jeffrey Schwartz' 4 steps (Four Steps) but never in the 11 week prescription that he suggests. But I began that in September and added Ho'oponopono. During the first week the anxiety surged but by weeks end I experienced an undeniable shift. It was really something extraordinary.
I still have things I am working on with the 4 steps but the anxiety, which crippled me for years, is NOT one of the issues at this time.

I journal the thoughts. Getting it down on paper seems to work wonders. It can reveal patterns.
A lot of times it shows the circular nature our thoughts can take. Many may contradict each other. Which I like to laugh about.
