Monitor Your Anxiety Levels: Observe your anxiety level as it rises and falls in relation to what you focus on. Watch your level rise as you try to rid yourself of anxious thoughts and feelings. Watch it fall when you accept and allow them to exist. Your anxiety level will fall even if you do nothing more than wait and let time pass. Once identifying your levels and watching them change becomes a habit, you will be pleasantly surprised to find how relatively infrequently really high levels occur and how quickly they pass when they do arise.
