    ANXIETY IN A QUARANTINE EPISODE 10: STRICTLY FOR THE ANXIOUS

    Hello, I hope you're doing well. 



    This video is for anyone to watch, but I made it as the title states, STRICTLY FOR THE ANXIOUS. I'm an anxious person. I know what it feels like to be able to function with anxiety and what it feels like to not be able to function with anxiety. This video is for you.

    I spoke quite a bit about Brene Brown in the this video, and in most of my last videos as well. I've listened to her audio books, watched her TedX talk and her Netflix special as well. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU DO THE SAME.

    ANXIETY IN A QUARANTINE EPISODE 9: A HYPOCHONDRIACS REVELATION

    ANXIETY IN A QUARANTINE EPISODE 9: A HYPOCHONDRIACS REVELATION

    Hello fellow Anxious people!



    I recorded this video a few nights ago, or mornings ago. 

    As I'll explain in the video I was sitting in the bathroom around 4:30 AM when I started to "hear" something and was about to take a shower. This is one of those instances where I could have or even would have had a panic attack, but instead something else happened. Something good I think. 



    You tell me what you think or if anything like this has ever happened to you. 



    Here are the links to the song and the Alan Watts and Terence Mckenna clips I use in the video:



    Kelly Marie- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yCEIT...



    Alan Watts- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gFMmR...



    Terence Mckenna/ We Plants Are Happy Pants- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uzPko...



    Let me know if you liked the video and below you can find me on Facebook, Instagram or the audio version of this Podcast. 



    Thanks for watching!

    ANXIETY IN A QUARANTINE EPISODE 8: STOP FIGHTING IN THE COMMENTS

    ANXIETY IN A QUARANTINE EPISODE 8: STOP FIGHTING IN THE COMMENTS

    HELLO FRIENDS! 



    I hope you and everyone you know is doing well. 



    On this episode I discuss my thoughts and observations on something I think we've all either experienced or taken part in. FIGHTING IN INTERNET COMMENTS. 



    This is something I've talked about and thought about a lot and on the more rare occasion have taken part in as well. I think this is the most wasted activity ever and a huge factor in giving people anxiety and exacerbating anxiety. I'm sure everyone has their own opinions on the matter and I really want to hear what all of you think. 

    Hopefully we can discuss this without engaging in even more fighting in the internet comments. 



    I hope you enjoy this video. If so please like and subscribe! 

    IT IS GREATLY APPRECIATED! 



    THANK YOU!

    ANXIETY IN A QUARANTINE EPISODE 7: IN DIRECT SUNLIGHT

    ANXIETY IN A QUARANTINE EPISODE 7: IN DIRECT SUNLIGHT

    Hello World! 



    So, for episode 7 of ANXIETY IN A QUARANTINE I was not only out of my house, but I was in direct sunlight in the actual outer doors. It was really great. 



    I rode my bike a total of about 12.5 miles today which I think is pretty good. I'll try to do more tomorrow if the weather holds up, we are expecting rain most of the week here on Long Island. 

    Any who,



    In todays video I talk a lot about wallowing and feeling sour or shitty. A feeling I thin it's safe to assume that everyone is feeling right now in this Pandemic. Speaking from my own personal experience as someone with anxiety I can say that it has been a real up and down, frustratingly unpredictable time. My mood swings on a normal basis and now It's leaving me pretty paralyzed most of the time. Or at least that was most of my week. Like I said it has been up and down and I'm going forward with the attitude that it will be mostly up, because I am going to stick to a more helpful routine. I'll talk more about this is upcoming videos as I create it lol 



    I do mention Brene Brown quite a bit in this video. Go look her up, she has videos here on YouTube in TedX talks, a special on Netflix and many published books. Here is her website: https://brenebrown.com/ 



    Also, here is the Link to my Big Bucket Of Chicken Podcast as well as the audio version of this podcast, if you prefer to listen rather than watch and anything else I'm up to as well. 

    Follow me on Instagram, it's pretty much the only social media I take part in these days.
