Why You Should Blog About Anxiety

Maybe you have a lifestyle blog where you prefer to keep things light and fun, or your list is health-based where you prefer talking about holistic health or common health conditions, but prefer not to talk about mental health.

I understand this philosophy, but I guarantee people on your list or who read your blog suffer from anxiety and other mental health issues.

Here is the thing about anxiety – Not everyone likes to talk about it.

I think the stigma is gradually becoming less of an issue, but many people don’t even want to seek professional help or tell their doctor.

What do they do about it?

They look it up online! That is how I originally figured out I was suffering from anxiety and panic disorder, and I know many others like me do the same thing.

YOU can be the blog people turn to when they want to learn about the symptoms, when to get help, what they can do from home, and the best ways to cope with anxiety and panic attacks.

Just Look at the Statistics

According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, anxiety is the most common mental health condition in the United States alone. I imagine there are similar statistics in other parts of the world.

At any given time, approximately 40 million people are suffering from anxiety.

Anxiety is highly treatable. This is perhaps the most important statistic to keep in mind.

While I still personally recommend having a disclaimer when talking about mental health and asking your readers to seek professional help if they need it, you can still provide information about anxiety and ways to manage it on their own.

MANY people with anxiety do what I do – they not only go to therapy, but they also manage symptoms and panic attacks at home.

Use High-Quality PLR to Start Discussing Anxiety

If you’re on my list and buy from my store, you probably like to use prewritten content. A lot of PLR providers out there (including yours truly) have awesome PLR about anxiety, stress, depression, and other mental health conditions you can bet your readers are interested in learning more about.

What Can You Promote?

As I was writing the Managing Anxiety limited PLR pack, I started jotting down notes of what you can promote.

I made a list of the types of products I mentioned in the articles, that way you can easily link within your blog posts to products on Amazon and other places for quick and easy affiliate commissions.

Here is a list of what you can promote with these 5 articles specifically, but others on this topic also have plenty more options!

Coloring books
Coloring supplies – crayons, colored pencils, markers, etc.
Journals
Yoga supplies – clothing, yoga mats, accessories
Workout supplies – water bottles, clothing, DVDs
Books
Essential oils & diffusers
Aromatherapy candles
Bath supplies & accessories
Pet supplies

My Last Tip: Put a Personal Spin on it

If you have any level of anxiety, I highly recommend talking about it when you are adding anxiety-related PLR to your blog or mailing your list.

I used to have this lifestyle blog that really didn’t have a lot of posts on it and I wasn’t consistent with at all. But I did have a series where I talked about my own experience with anxiety, and those were always the most read posts and the ones more people interacted with me about.

Why? Because not only did a lot of people who found my blog want to know more about anxiety, but they felt connected to me because we shared the same symptoms or experiences with it.

Even if you don’t personally struggle with anxiety, you might know someone who does, so you already have a fresh perspective on it – from someone who has seen how it can impact other people. Use that!

 

Why I Love Coloring Books for the Social Anxiety Niche

Here at Health & Wellness PLR, I like to cover as many different health-related topics as I can, and that includes mental health.

Which is why I chose to do a big prewritten content bundle about Social Anxiety. I know I have mentioned it before, but as someone with social anxiety (and 2 other anxiety disorders, and depression), I feel like I have a good handle on it. Like.. I’m not going to be making small talk with strangers any time soon, but I no longer feel like my heart might explode every time I walk outside.

Progress.

In terms of what you can promote with this niche, there is TONS. Books, fidget toys (fidget spinners anyone?), sketchbooks. But my personal favorite is coloring. I remember making a joke about wanting to hide in a fort with a coloring book whenever I got anxious. I’m super pissed I’m not being credited for inventing the adult coloring book and the rise of fort popularity. Oh well, moving on.

Here are 3 reasons I love coloring books for social anxiety (and why you should promote them):

  1. It is the Perfect Mindless Distraction from Panic

A lot of times, people with social anxiety don’t just get anxious feelings and panic attacks during the actual social situation, but before. You know you are about to go out to a busy restaurant or for some people, just go outside with people, and it is terrifying. This creates a lot of anxiety before you step outside your front door. Coloring books are awesome for relaxing you.

  1. Coloring Books Are Convenient

This is why I think you should promote them, and why I have tons of them at home. They’re easy to find, relatively inexpensive, usually small enough for most purses and handbags, even thin enough to fit in your laptop case. You don’t need much aside from some colored pencils (or crayons if you want to be super old school), and you’re good to go.

  1. They Give You Something to do in Social Situations

This is what I personally think is the best part about them, and what people without social anxiety don’t realize. When you are caught in a social situation you don’t want to be in, like on the train or a packed airplane, you don’t want to make small talk. You don’t want to constantly pretend like you’re checking your phone even though you’re not. You just want to hide in your safe little bubble and ignore everyone. COLORING IS PERFECT FOR THIS.

The adult coloring book phenomenon is the best thing to ever happen for people with anxiety. I’m not above using the Frozen coloring book I “borrowed” from my neighbor’s kid, but I also like to pretend I at least have my sh*t somewhat together. If you have a coloring book that says ADULT on it, that counts right?
