  • breath in for 4 seconds
  • hold your breath for 7 seconds
  • exhale breath for 8 seconds

repeat once or twice more.

This causes an autonomic nervous system shift from a sympathetic (fight or flight reaction) state to a parasympathetic response.

Use this for panic/anxiety attacks, exams, presentations.

Never not reblog

Tumblr got anxiety advice. Fuck yeah.

Read this earlier, and it helped me a lot tonight.

It’s also good because if you count the seconds you’re using the rational/logical part of your brain which distracts the irrational part that is causing the panic/anxiety attack.
(I don’t know the actual science words for that but yeah) 

The guy who saw me crying in the lobby of the library is in the same cluster of desks in the quiet study room as I am….awk.

Oh yay, an existential crisis is exactly what I need right now! 

Kind of generally discouraged by my inability to be a normal adult.

Tonight I made a very bad Freudian slip at a social event but I might have been the only one who noticed. 

Why am I still awake? Oh right, because I had coffee 12 hours ago.

THE REAL FUCKING TRUTH OF THIS WORLD

especially when you’re an apple elitist and obsessed with honeycrisps

so take a chance and make it big ‘cause it’s the last you’ll ever get x

The Signs of Life Daniel Zakharov

These “signs of life” provided very personal information about other people’s lives and the worlds unknown to me. And still, the most important part of those lives remained hidden. Today, when our lives are formed by social networks and you can learn anything you want to know about any one by a mere movement of your finger, I welcome mystery as something wonderful. To be free from virtual world, from the stream of information and knowledge, to be able to concentrate only on your perception of the reality around you, your own thoughts and fantasies…”

Who’s Alex?
Billboard demonstrating gender stereotypes as most people automatically assume that Alex is the boy.

As a girl named Alex, THIS IS SO IMPORTANT.
