Did you know that Sweatpants & Coffee’s beloved mental health mascot, the Anxiety Blob, is kind of a big deal on social media? Go to Instagram and search the #anxietyblob hashtag, and you’ll find Anxiety Blobs having all sorts of blobventures – a great reminder that anxiety is a condition you can manage and that you are not alone.
People with anxiety sometimes have trouble doing things, and in addition to being a great cuddle partner, Anxiety Blobs can be a great source of comfort when you have to do the dreaded things. Here are a few snapshots from Instagram of Blobs helping keep people at ease while doing anxiety-inducing activities like flying and driving.
Blobs are great companions for road trips, especially those times when the drives may be long or scary.
They help make flying less stressful.
And are excellent at helping you pack when you feel overwhelmed making decisions about what to bring.
@Regrann from @albie_the_anxiety_blob – Albie is off for an adventure for a few days with @bubakes – he has his luggage ready, and of course his yoga mat so he can do his daily yoga with Bu & @adrienelouise ❤️ #bubakes #adventure #anxiety #yoga #wellness #love #mentalhealth #sweatpantsandcoffee #depressedcakeshop #anxietyblob #mentalhealth #mentalhealthblogger
For many people, for a lot of reasons, public restrooms can be a source of stress. Blob will be there to hold your hand.
People coming to visit is nice, but it also makes us anxious, luckily Blob is great at lending a hand when you have to #cleanallthethings.
@Regrann from @anxiety_bob_the_anxiety_blob – Company's coming? Oh dear. PANIC. Must. Clean. Everything. Forget it. Throw everything out. That'd just be easier. . . . Oh, did I mention: that "company" is my dad… More panicking now. . . . #thisisanxiety #thestruggleisreal #obsessivecleaning #companyiscoming #anxietybob #anxietyblob
