Wellbeing Wednesdays Episode #28: Anxiety
“The one about… Anxiety”
The experience of anxiety is something that nobody is immune from, whether it's a mild feeling of unease, right through to fully blown panic attacks. It can even take over our lives, limiting our choices because we fear that certain situations will overwhelm us… and so we avoid them. We try our best with sometimes-effective coping mechanisms, or we seek help in trying to root out the cause of it all, in our past. Let's face it, it's not much fun, is it?
You'll be pleased to hear, there's a totally different experience of it all to be had; one that is outside of everything you already know about anxiety. An understanding of anxiety and its diametric opposite—peace of mind—that doesn't require any digging around in the past, or clinging on to rituals & techniques by your nails.
“So much wisdom – fantastic way to spend an evening! Really recommended.” ~ L.W. (Subscriber)
This episode is a deep dive into that understanding. Here are some of the questions we covered:
How do I stop worrying thoughts?
How can I reduce workplace anxiety?
How to manage health anxiety… from covid, to conspiracy theories to actual death?
What to do about panic attacks – getting them to stop; actions to take, right in the middle of one?
How to cope with social anxiety?
In answering them, we structured the evening around an exploration of the statement “I AM ANXIOUS ABOUT…” and broke it down into four steps:
FOUNDATIONS: Looking in a totally different direction from what we've been taught
MECHANICS: What is going on with anxiety? How does it actually work? What does it mean?
IMPLICATIONS: Your questions answered, in relation to our newfound understanding of the MECHANICS
TRUE NATURE: Going a step further and exploring our true identity, and what that means for the experience of anxiety.
