2 Ways to Care for a Loved One Struggling With Anxiety

I just read an article that really spoke to me because I have a family member who’s been struggling with anxiety. In the article, it discussed two ways to care for a loved one who’s struggling with anxiety: offer support and reduce pressure. Both of these strategies really resonated with me because they are simple yet effective ways to show care and concern to someone who’s struggling. With my family member, I’ve been trying to offer support by listening to them and being a shoulder to lean on. I also try to reduce pressure by helping them to take a break from whatever is causing them to feel anxious. This has been helpful in helping my loved one to feel more relaxed and in control of their own life. Overall, this article has been a great reminder to me of how important it is to show care and compassion to those who need it the most.
