It’s easy to believe that life without anxiety would be easier, more peaceful, and overall better. But that couldn’t be further from the truth.

In reality, anxiety is a necessary part of our lives and warns us when things can go wrong. It protects us when we are faced with a fight, flight, or freeze situation, and motivates us to take charge of situations.

But while anxiety can be helpful, when it starts to impact your day-to-day life negatively it can become a problem. Living with constant anxiety isn’t good for your health – physical or mental. The good news is there are lots of ways we can work together to help you cope.

What You’ll Learn

  • Why anxiety is not something we can cure (and why nobody should tell you they can)
  • When anxiety can actually be helpful
  • How different people experience anxiety – from Generalized Anxiety Disorder to Panic Disorder, to Social Anxiety Disorder and more
  • How different types of anxiety manifest in our lives
  • The difference between helpful worries and unhelpful worries
