My Scary Experience

So today I had this presentation for my piracy class which was super scary!

I really like the class but I just really hate presentations because I have anxiety as it is I don’t need it to be made worse with worrying about talking in front of a bunch of people.

Also for some reason (probably because it’s such a fun class) everyone always shows up so there are at least like fifteen to twenty people there.

And I am really not a fan of speaking in front of people especially if there are more then ten people. Plus, two of the people who were supposed to present with us could not make it.

It was a pretty scary experience and I stuttered and stammered and rambled A LOT.

But it was also kind of fun and I think it went pretty well for a first presentation. I learnt a lot from the experience and hope to do better the next time I have to present (which I’m hoping is never!)… maybe next time I’ll be less freaked out I hope…

Hope you enjoyed hearing about my little experience and let me know in the comments below how your first presentation went!!

How To Appreciate The Introverts In Your Life

Don’t force them to do stuff- most introverts can only do so much going out/socialising before they need to recharge again so don’t force them to do stuff. If they tell you they can’t or don’t want to they really mean it so don’t guilt them about not hanging out with you!

Listen- most introverts don’t talk to people a lot unless they know you pretty well- then they never shut up! When introverts try to talk to you, you should really listen because you probably mean a lot to them and what they’re telling you is probably much more then just small talk.

Don’t guilt them- introverts tend to be very sensitive and if you guilt them about stuff it’s going to really mess with them. It’s wrong to guilt anyone into doing stuff but introverts tend to take it harder then others do.

Be there for them- sometimes introverts have a hard time expressing their feelings so even if they don’t talk to you about it but seem kind of down or something you should try to be there for them. Introverts try to act like they’re okay but a lot of the time we’re just screaming in our heads.

How To Deal With Anxiety When Moving

Whether it’s moving out of your parents house or moving to a different continent moving is always super terrifying. Some months ago I made the huge decision of moving from Kenya to Canada for university and as someone with anxiety it was pretty stressful and anxiety inducing. Here are some tips that helped me deal with my anxiety during the move.

Stay focused- Sometimes anxiety can really get the best of you and a lot of times I ended up thinking “is this really what I want?”, “is this worth it?”, but you have to remember your goal. You have to remember everything you are going to be able to gain if you go through with it. Really think about it and don’t let anxiety cloud your thinking. If you want, you can write down all the reasons you want to/should move so that whenever you’re feeling anxious you can read it and remember why you’re doing this and why it’s worth it!

Yoga and meditation- I know I talk about this one a lot but the truth is yoga and meditation can really be life savers for a lot of people with anxiety. It will help you stay calm both in your everyday life and during stressful times such as moving. It helps focus your mind and teaches you to control your thoughts.

Take some time off- Take some time to relax and watch a movie or something. Your life doesn’t need to revolve around the move although it’s understandable that a major part of it will. Sometimes you just need to shut off your brain and do nothing which is where reality TV comes in… seriously it’s a great distraction!

Hobbies- Remember to have some hobbies like reading, writing, watch TV in your sweat pants… It helps to do a bunch of other stuff too because when your mind is idle it tends to over-think things and that’s often when the anxiety takes over.

Talk to a professional- If you’re feeling really anxious and nothing seems to be working please do talk to a professional about your situation. Just talking about what you’re going through really helps sometimes and there is nothing wrong with seeking help.

How To Ease Your Travel Anxiety

As an international student, travelling has become a part of my life and as much as I actually do love travelling my anxiety does tend to mess with me sometimes. However, over the last few months I have learnt a few things that help ease my anxiety before and during my travels. I really hope it helps you guys too because travelling should be a good experience not an anxiety ridden one.

  1. Be prepared in advance– I usually try to finish all of my packing at least one day in advance so on the actual day I’m travelling I know I’m done with everything and I can relax. This gives you a chance to kind of relax your brain because once it’s all anxious it’s hard to calm it back down. I just have to go through everything and make sure I’m not forgetting anything and I’m done!
  2. Lots of chamomile tea- studies have shown that drinking chamomile tea helps calm you down and reduces stress levels so if you’re packed in advance you have a few minutes to sit down and have a nice cup of chamomile tea to really calm you down. You can also take some along with you or buy them at the nearest coffee shop to help keep you calm during your journey  Chamomile tea doesn’t help everyone but it has helped me so give it a try and see if it works for you!
  3. Meditation and yoga- like I said before if you’re packed in advance you have more time to do relaxing things and it really helps to do some yoga and breathing exercises. There are a lot of special yoga positions and meditations that are specifically for relieving anxiety and stress and I wasn’t a huge believer in either but they really do wonders for you especially if you do them long term! You can also do the breathing exercises while travelling to help you stay calm in anxiety inducing situations.
  4. Your carryon is important– This is crucial to your travel. In my experience what you carry with you on the plane/bus/train is very important to how your journey will go. Firstly, make sure to double check that you have your passport and any other documents you may need during your journey. Secondly, make sure you have a book or headphones or something to distract you in case you do end up getting really anxious or having a panic attack. I also make sure to carry food and drinks with me because I tend to get more anxious when I’m hungry or dehydrated and you can do this too.
  5. Don’t forget to breathe– at the end of the day you have to remind yourself that it’s just travelling and it’s really no big deal. Most of the time when anxiety takes over it’s hard to think rationally but you need to train your mind and make sure it doesn’t control you with irrational thoughts. Keep thinking calming things and just try to relax and enjoy the moment!

My Canadian Experience

A lot has changed in the past few days. I’m in a foreign country where I know absolutely no one, have no idea where anything is located and I haven’t found an apartment to stay in yet however I have no anxiety at all what so ever. Since I have landed in Canada my anxiety and insomnia have seemed to completely disappear. I don’t know why or how but for some reason Canada has a way of making people feel as if they’re finally home. Like you’ve finally reached the destination you’ve been looking for your entire life. No I haven’t had only good experiences but I haven’t had any horrible experiences either. Seeing new places, trying new things, just being somewhere else is exhilarating. I love travelling and new experiences and this has been the best one yet.

I unfortunately couldn’t get pictures of everything because I’m lazy but I did get pictures of the food (duh!). As you may or may not know I’m trying to go vegan so I decided to try out a vegan place in St. Catharines called Rise Above. I think it’s the only place in St. Catharines that is completely vegan (it also has gluten free options) and no they are not sponsoring me to write all this 😂

So I have orientation tomorrow which I’m really looking forward to! Tell you more about it when I get some time!

How To Have Fun As An Introvert!

Plan- As an introvert I get a lot of anxiety about stuff like hanging out or going somewhere and to decrease your anxiety and have more fun you should try to plan our your activities for the day before hand so that you have a stress free time. And if you’re going to multiple places make sure you have a ride planned, and I think one way to make that less stressful is to rent a car because if like me you don’t really have a car of your own it gets a little expensive using taxis or Uber’s all day long. Turo is a good option if you’re in the US, Canada or the U.K. It’s car renting company where you can rent a car and the best part is it’s peer-to-peer renting. That way you can have a ride for the whole day and don’t have to worry about getting back on time. For more information on Turo and how to rent a car please click here.

Few People- I usually don’t like parties or events with too many people because I start feeling overwhelmed and uncomfortable so if you’re planning a party or get-together make sure to invite only close friends and family so you don’t end up overwhelmed with talking to everyone and being a good host. If there are few people you can have deeper conversations with everyone and have a good time too!

Loosen Up- try to loosen up before hanging out with your friends so you can have fun. Meditation and yoga helps me loosen up but you can do anything you’re comfortable with that you like. Playing with your pets is also another great way to relax.

Nothing Is Perfect- Nothing in the world can be perfect and your party/fun night out doesn’t have to be perfect either. Honestly, some of my fondest memories are of when things went wrong and my friends and I were just like what?!? I know how hard it is to try to not control everything but it’s way more fun to let go and just let things happen the way they’re probably going to anyway.  

Do Something Mellow And Low-Key- If you’re idea of having fun is sitting with a few close friends and discussing the books you’re reading at the moment or your favorite TV shows in your PJ’s with a bunch of pizza and popcorn I say go for it! No one should tell you how to have fun and enjoy your life and you should do whatever you want even if it seems boring to other people. Having fun is all about how you feel not about pleasing other people.
