Unfortunately, in many ways, I feel we have it backward when responding to our anxiety, myself included.
During my twenties, I treated my anxiety by trying to numb it with medication, alcohol and staying busy. This gave me the ability to ignore how I was feeling but did not do anything to heal the root problem. Instead, the anxiety was only masked, boiling underneath the surface and getting worse.
In this episode of Empowerment Solutions, I want to share with you the 3 top reasons why you don’t have to be afraid of your anxiety but instead can embrace it and use it as a jumping-off point to becoming your best self.
