For several years, I tried many different mechanisms when it came to relieving my anxiety. After awhile, all of these mechanisms stopped working and it wasn't until months after I graduated from college, that I decided to take the necessary steps to sustain my anxiety because it was going from bad to worse.
During the time of my decision to take this seriously, I had remembered a Behavior Modification course I had taken in college and how much of a success the behavior I modified that semester had helped me. So when that crossed my mind, I realized I now needed to modify more behaviors in my life that would help my mental health, not just my mental health.
Today, I can say main ways I sustain my anxiety in my young adult life, is through my adopting a vegan lifestyle, self-motivation (such as positive pep talks to myself) and I started taking prayer more seriously.
