I took Prozac for anxiety for a couple years in the past, and it really helped me. Basically, I stopped overreacting to stuff that wasn't really a big deal. I've been off of Prozac for a few years now, but I try to keep the same mindset as when I was on it.  When I get nervous, I always try to think to myself that it's not the end of the world. This pattern of thinking seems to help, although I do have bad moments occasionally. What are some other good ways of coping with anxiety?

Distraction and activity sometimes work for me. If I can get out and walk, sometimes I can stop a panic attack. Unfortunately, most times I can't and I'm still on medication which helps some but doesn't completely stop them at times.

I do different things when I get stresses and axious. Sometimes all it takes is a ride in the car blasting some music, sometimes I clean my house and organize, and other times I meditate. It just depends on how anxious I am and what I think will help.

I agree with going for a ride and blasting music. I've also found that writing in a journal about what makes me nervous or anxious helps me a lot. It helps with just getting it "out there." Also, try working out or meditation. I find it hard to quiet my mind sometimes, but if you can do that--it definitely is soothing.

Well the truth is that no matter how much you worry about how well or poorly you preform in life, life will still happen.  Try not to mind it so much.  Keeping busy is good.  All you can do is try your best and if you are already trying your best then you can not control anything else.  You will never be able to please everyone all the time and not everyone can like you even if you are a very likeable person.  It's just human nature.  Be yourself and be happy & do things that make you happy.  When you feel stressed, think of things that calm you down and then if you can go and do them.

Medications are not proper solution to control the anxiety and depression. 

I believe in exercises specially yoga and meditaion to handle the anxiety and depression and these are really very good tools to handle the anxiety, stress, depresstion, and all other mental problems.

If you get involved in some reglious practice, does not matter which religion you belong to, it will take you away from anxiety as well as grow the confidence in you. The other causes behind anxiety can be your mismanaged daily routine, and imbalanced diet. If you take a correct direction on these two sides as well, the personal problems will dissipate on their own.

Life with anxiety very hard. I will tell you what helped me and ideally it does you to. Physical exercise and a lot of it. Ideally in sunlight. I don't know what about the sun it's that makes us feel good but it does. Maybe jog outside or if not in good enough shape then I would try to walk very fast. Stay away from caffeine and alcohol too.

Treating anxiety depends on how intensive it is. There are some techniques that can help you like deep breathing, physical exercises and yoga practice. Also counseling can be helpful for you to deeply understand your problems and help to find ways to deal with them. It is the good way of treating your anxiety.

I do like art therapy when i'm trying to deal with my anxiety or stress or anger , i'm drawing pictures. The process of painting makes all the troubles go away and i feel so calm a not stressed at all. And i've discovered https://www.floatingstyles.com/products/diamond-painting-make-your-own-paint that made all the process to be prepared easily and you can create something more that just a painting.
