"4 Smartphone Coping Skills for Anxiety. Carol Adkisson, Therapist, Fontana, www.caroladkisson.com. Do you have anxiety and/or depression. Did it ever occur to you that your smartphone would be useful to help you with this problem? Here are 4 simple methods to use your smartphone with anxiety and/or depression. 1. Use a calm app, these are available at your app store. So many options, many of them free. The sound of different types of nature, meditation, muscle relaxation, you name it and all you have to do is double click on your app and you are ready to go.
2. Music. So calming and soothing. Really can relax you. I love to listen to the harmony of the Eagles. You might like to listen to rap, or country, or classic. It doesn't matter what it is as long as it calms you down. Put in those earphones and relax.
3. Journal on the note section of your phone. Talking about your thoughts and feelings is so important. If your upset start typing, you would be amazed at how much it can help.
4. Create a note that lists at least 10 coping skills. There are so many to choose from. Remember when you are upset, it is difficult to think. Our brain's are not functioning at optimum capacity. Exercising is a good to put there. Four deep breaths to get some oxygen to your brain is great. What about gardening. What works for you. Put it on this note and take it out of if you are upset.
