If you’re human, there’s a 100% guarantee that you’ve experienced anxiety at some time in your life.
If you’re in the minority, you probably don’t feel its effects all that much. Lucky for you!
But if you’re in the majority, anxiety can feel like an uninvited guest that shows up EVERYWHERE, sucking the joy out of life.
While we can never fully rid ourselves of anxiety, we can learn to manage it.
The problem is the majority of us don’t know how to manage anxiety.
We all were raised by rookies who were doing the best they could, but most of our parents have un-diagnosed depression, anxiety, PTSD, and other mental health issues.
They TOO were raised by rookies… but the bottom line is that for most of us, nobody has ever taught us how to manage anxiety.
I want to share this snippet from a Q&A call with one of my students, who asked the question:
How does anxiety effect long-term mental health issues?
In it, I dive into how anxiety works, its short-and-long-term impacts, and the benefits of managing our own anxiety in conjunction with that of our children.
I hope you find a nugget or two in there to help you!
