I once went through an insane period with a lot of anxiety, and I'd try the hot baths with bathsalts, which was ok, for a while, hot choclate is also
nice, as long as it's the sugar free kind (not too much sugar) with a big fat marshmellow, which is fun to play with, rolling it as it melts..
I also had a mantra i'd write out over and over again, given to me from a friend as a suggestion
I am safe
I am at peace
All is well
The unconditional loving support of loved ones is also helpful, as is the complete lack of any responsibility for a while, while you heal, if you can
(finances, sabbatical etc. permitting) - it's nice to say goodbye for a while to the "normal" world of insanity for the purpose of a healing retreat
from the world, provided you don't isolate.
A good book maybe if you're into reading.
Ice cream, ginger ale and a good movie to curl up to, is also a good thing to do.
Comfortable clean clothing and pijamas and bedding is also important - cleanliness is next to Godliness as they say, and it feels nice.
And, for reducing heart rate and blood pressure, and anxiety, there's a binaural beat brainwave entrainment track in the Alchemy Thread in my
signature called "Bach To The Future", that will help.
Be gentle with yourself, curl up into a nice comfy little ball, and be still and be at peace, while generating not anxiety or fear, but love,
quietude, and harmony.
A new kitten would also be good, to have something to look after, something cute and cuddly, which will make you forget all about yourself.
That's all I can think of right now.
Don't worry. Everything's going to be ok!
