Anxiety is a fight or flight mechanism that our bodies naturally do. It actually can be a good thing. Most people know when there isn’t any danger around to shut off anxiety. But for some people, myself included, do not know when to shut off anxiety. Anxiety also is living in the future. I have found myself many a time doing just that. It can be detrimental to your wellbeing and overall health.
I listened to both Part 1 and Part 2 of Anxiety as a Smoke Alarm. In Part 1, Cassandra gives an analogy of anxiety as a smoke alarm. It is actually quite interesting to think of anxiety in that fashion. In Part 2, Cassandra suggest tools to diffuse anxiety when it arises; access the situation, breathe deeply, look around in your surroundings and get grounded. By doing these steps, my nervous system will reset itself and my mind will be back in the present moment, where I am free from anxiety. What a great Life Coaching session for anyone who has suffered from anxiety! Thank you, Cassandra!
For those that haven’t listened to Part 1, I highly suggest you listen to that one first to get the most out of Part 2.
