The act of scheduling an activity may give you something to look forward to. As soon as you make plans, you may experience a boost in mood. Then, when you engage in the activity, you are more likely to experience an even brighter mood which can help break out of a downward spiral.

HOW TO USE A POSITIVE DIARY

Could starting a positivity journal change your life? Maybe. It can certainly change your perspective. Self-care should be a priority and keeping a positive diary is beneficial for all areas of health and wellbeing. If you struggle with a negative mindset, keeping a positivity journal could be the key to achieving a more optimistic mindset.  

Using A FEAR HIERARCHY

A fear hierarchy is a list you make of the triggers that make you feel afraid or anxious. After you write them down, you rank them from the one that makes you feel least fearful or anxious to the one that scares you the most. If you have an anxiety disorder, your list will likely be situations, images, thoughts, memories, and other things related to your anxiety.
