how they deal with anxiety [500 word limit]: Music! They always love to sit on a beanbag chair in their room and just listen to a nice, soft remix of a song that fits their aesthetic. But besides that, they also love to doodle in their ocean-themed notebook!

kalon name: Paxton

how they deal with anxiety:
Sometimes Paxton finds it hard to deal with all his stress. Between work and college, he's got a lot to deal with, and his social anxiety only makes those things all the more difficult. He does his best to manage his anxiety, but sometimes things just pile up on top of each other until he's immensely overwhelmed. His mind races so quickly that he can't even process the thoughts as they whirl by, his heart pounds and his breathing grows shallow. It's not uncommon for him to have anxiety attacks like these, but fortunately he knows how to deal with them.

Shakily, Paxton takes a step back from what he's doing and looks away so he doesn't have to see the anxiety-inducing thing in front of him. Then, he goes to his bedroom and grabs a blanket, one that has a little hood that he can put over his head to help him feel more secure. The combined warmth and weight of the blanket allows him to relax enough to steady his breathing, and often takes the edge off his headache if he has one. Then, he'll pull out a metal instrumental album and blast it through his earbuds to drown out the outside world. While the wild music might seem like it would be too much during an anxiety attack, the sheer volume from it helps him to separate himself from whatever might have caused the attack to begin with. It's just instruments of course, the harsh vocals probably would make him considerably more stressed. Once he's bundled up and listening to his music, Paxton starts to feel like he's got control of his own bubble. This helps him return to a more calm state, if still a bit nervous. He's no longer hyperventilating, and his mind has slowed to let him think clearly. He stays in the bubble for a short while longer to make sure he doesn't immediately launch into another attack. Paxton is still a bit shaky afterwards, but having taken a bit to calm himself down, he can now look at the thing that caused him to have an attack in a more objective manner. Was the task too much? Maybe he could break it down into smaller bits. Is there too much stuff going on? Maybe he needs to cancel or reschedule one of his plans, or if that isn't possible, perhaps he could take what free time he has to simply relax and take care of himself. While these things might seem obvious, it can be hard for Paxton to think of them when his mind isn't wired to do that. It takes a bit of time, of course, but he knows that if he didn't take care of himself during these attacks, he wouldn't be able to move forward with what he needed to do. While it's not fun to have such bad anxiety, Paxton is at least relieved that he can take care of himself when it's too much to handle. (500/500)

how do they deal with anxiety?

Finch was never one to be able to deal with anxiety on their
own. It really put down their ability to actually go out and
do things, having a constant feeling of dread that he couldn't
seem to shake. One day when he had decided to take a walk,
that seemed to have changed, however. While clouded in his
worrying thoughts, a small, plump, blue bird had decided to
plant itself in his hair. Confused, Finch had paused in his step.
Cautiously he had felt his head with his paws, coming into
contact with something very petite and rather soft. A bird.
As if sensing that the poor kalon was in distress, it starting
singing a song softly. It put Finch at ease, even a small grin
on his face appearing at the pleasant noise. This continued
for the entire duration of his walk, and even back to his
home. "You... Want to stay?" He asked once they had reached
the entrance, the small bird planting itself in Finch's hair as
a yes. Though Finch never understood why, exactly, this tiny
animal wanted to help him, he never complained. From that
faithful walk Finch seemed to have found the answer to his
anxiety: a small song bird. From then on, whenever he was
having a rough day with those anxious feelings, he would
simply listen to his bird, Blue, sing those lovely notes to him.

kalon name: felix, meaning "lucky, successful" or, "happy, fortunate"
doesn't quite fit anxiety, but i feel like he deserves a name with happiness
how they deal with anxiety
felix has always been a bit of an odd one, often skittish and jumpy, darting away to hide behind the nearest thing at sudden flurries of movement. it's a way he's been for his entire life, and it is likely due to his anxiety, and the constant fear that envelopes him when he's put into a situation where he could meet someone new. he's terrified of meeting people and giving them the wrong impression or not knowing what to say, something that can't be helped no matter how many times someone may try to calm him with logic. he's so used to staying on his own and being quiet, listening to the sounds of the world around him and taking them as he continues to watch the world go by around him in silence, that it makes the times where he has to interact with another even worse. he hides behind his mop of hair when he has too, wanting to hide the worry and fear contained by his red eyes anxiously darting around, desperately hoping they don't see what he's feeling like through the strands. the hair in his eyes is like a safety-net, a protection against questions he doesn't have the words for, and it's an odd comfort to him. it's like a barrier to hide behind, something protect him when he becomes afraid. it's the same reason he always drags his little turquoise pillow wherever he goes too; it helps him to feel less exposed to the world when he curls up and it hides his stomach and chest, hugging it with his paws, and it helps for him to be able to hold something, to have a sort of anchor to bring him back to earth. it helps him to hide away when he bursts into a panic too over a surprise that happened that he didn't account for, or a sudden hello from another kalon that comes his way, since in those moments all he knows is that he needs to get away, to hide where others cannot see his panic so he can calm down and prepare himself for what he ran from. it helps to have something to bury his face into when he can't get away, and even when he can. his little pillow also helps him busy or still his paws, since he always seems to need to keep his hands busy somehow when his thoughts get too out of hand, and it helps him to just stare off into space while his paws fiddle with the soft silken fabric. truthfully, he doesn't even know why he's so afraid of what could happen sometimes, but that doesn't stop him from continuing to get worried and afraid and panicked over even the smallest and seemingly insignificant things, because his instinct to flight as opposed to fight is far too strong than it is for most, and his head sets off alarms at anything that could pose even the tiniest of threats.
[ 499/500 ]

this isn't quite connected to the entry, and more a bit of why I wanted to try for this darling little one, but I suffer from anxiety and social anxiety, and these are just two little things that help me to feel a little more secure. i tend to bring a pillow with me to hold whenever I need to go see a counselor/therapist/whatever you want to call them since it helps me to feel less exposed. I don't know why I hate the feeling of having nothing in front of me, but I know I feel a lot better when I have something that covers me a bit. it possibly has to do with something a more spiritual therapist told me once, of how your abdomen is a more vulnerable area to take in feelings and the energies that surround you, but I don't know. all I know is that it helps a surprising amount, and when I was still physically able to go into school (I do something called "unschooling", which a like home schooling, except you have tons of freedom to do what you want, and it's no where near as stressful, and it's a giant help if your school only cares about getting you into the building) hiding behind my hair helped me to calm down when I was about to cry because of the events that really kicked off my anxiety and got me into a hole I'm still digging myself out of. I felt like people couldn't see my face redden, even though they probably could whoops. writing is what helps me most though, and I need to write like I need to breathe, or at least know I can write if I need to. it forces me into a different mindset, and allows me to get out the thoughts and feelings trapped inside since generally once I put something down, if it's not big or significant, I feel so much lighter, and it doesn't come back.
if anyone here ever needs to talk about anxiety though, or anything at all, please don't hesitate to message me. I know how absolutely horrible it is to go through it alone, and how much easier it is to go through with someone who doesn't try to fix you or give you general responses that you hear and see all the time. the amazing friend I own a writing site with is that person to me, and I hope I'm that to her, and if I can be like that to anyone else, I want to try and help <3
