    Sticking to a routine – getting enough sleep, eating healthy, giving yourself time to rest – helps a lot. Anxiety can break plans. If that happens to me I become completely unproductive and can’t think about anything but anxiety. But it always helps me to get a grip on myself that I try to stick to my routine.
