My favorite thing to do when I can get cozy and watch Netflix. I like it with my family around or just chilling by myself.
Call a friend
It always helps if you can tell someone when you feel anxious about how you are feeling. It takes the load off your shoulders for a little while and places it into someone else’s hands to help you feel better.
