14. Do something productive.
Anxiety is often associated with feeling as if you have an insurmountable number of things that you have to do. If that description is an apt one of your anxiety, then one thing you can do to tame your anxiety lion quickly is to do something productive.
You don’t need to tackle your entire to-do list. You can even do something that is not on your to-do list. Maybe you aren’t ready to clean the gutters and repaint the whole house before winter sets in, but you can sweep the floor. Furthermore, once you’ve got that done, do the dishes. The next day, you can do the laundry. There, don’t you feel better already? You are more than a list with an impossible number of things to do. You are capable of getting things done.
