How To Change Your Relationship with Anxiety - a Put It into Practice Episode

Changing your relationship with anxiety requires a multi-faceted approach that addresses the underlying causes and triggers of your anxiety, as well as your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that maintain the cycle of anxiety.

In this episode I discuss how anxiety is not always a bad thing, but it can easily overtake our minds and bodies if we don’t learn to understand it. Plus, I share strategies that may help you cope with anxiety. Everyone's experience of anxiety is unique, and there may be other factors involved such as genetics, past experiences, and environmental factors.

It’s important to stress that these episodes are not meant to take the place of any work you’re doing with your therapist or doctor. In fact, please run these ideas by your counselor or doctor before you act on them to make sure you are ready for them or even fit for the suggestions. I can’t stress this enough, each person is unique and their situation is unique so please talk to your dr before starting anything new I may be suggesting.
