How can i try and manage my anxiety and stress!?

Hi im totally new to this but I’m desperate for any sort of advice. I start a new job next week and I’m absolutely terrified I have a flare up and I’m really unsure of what I particular can set my ibs off. I’ve had numerous tests to try and pinpoint anything but no luck, I try to eat pretty healthy and drink plenty of water etc but as you know anxiousness can set it off. Does anyone have any tips or anything that might help me to keep it at bay!? X

    Thanks for your question, @lauramitchell91! Congratulations on the new job! You’re definitely not alone with anxiety and stress being an IBS trigger. While we wait for some other suggestions, I thought I’d share this great article by @andrea-hardy-rd with you on some of her tips to manage stress: https://irritablebowelsyndrome.net/living/four-pillars-health-stress-management/. I hope this helps. Keep us updated on how the first week goes! – Chris, IrritableBowelSyndrome.net Team
