Read a book or take an online course!
Self-help books and online programs can be useful. There are several online courses on how to deal with stress, anxiety, and depression. I will mention a couple of them that I would highly recommend in the next sections. The good thing about the books and courses is that they can be done at your leisure and from home. The downside is that they provide general instructions and are not tailored to your specific needs. You may also prefer to talk about your problems with a person face to face rather than trying to solve them on your own. Nevertheless, you can give them a go if your anxiety or depression is mild. I recommend seeing your local doctor if your psychological symptoms are severe and debilitating.
