Does anyone have any advice or tips for dealing with anxiety on shabos? Usually I use music or youtube to calm myself down, but panic attacks on shabos are a lot harder to deal with, especially when they're so bad I can't do deep breathing or mindfulness. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated as my anxiety this shabos brought me to self-harm because I couldn't think of any shabos appropriate ways to stop the anxiety ( makes me wonder if it would have been better to just be mechalel shabos in the first place by listening to music rather than ending up cutting)
