Re: Good coping statements for anxiety muffled

My thoughts have historically been opposed to my trying to stop them, or talk myself out of them.

It works better *for me* to find the humor in them, or make humor if there is none.

It's hard to take fearful thoughts seriously if they're incongruously set to silly songs. Not nursery rhymes though. That can sound surprisingly scary. More like bubble gum pop.

Or if I exaggerate them slightly and look at them from an odd angle, there is often something genuinely amusing about them.

Kind of like the spell for Boggarts in Harry Potter.
