    Finding Your Anxiety Recovery Purpose - Episode 43

    Finding Your Anxiety Recovery Purpose - Episode 43

    Tactics alone won't cut it on the tough days..

    On the road to managing your mind & rewiring anxiety?

    Welcome. While certainly not easy, it’s possible and you must believe it is possible.

    By far, one of the most foundational elements in my recovery was finding a purpose, a reason to get out of bed in the morning more powerful than my anxiety.

    Anxiety hijacks your brain’s biochemistry. Making it go from just an idea or thought in your head to control your emotions, mood, neurotransmitters, and even changing behavior at a biochemical level.

    If you want to change your biochemistry, you must change your lifestyle.

    Going outside for walks, changing your diet, exercising regularly, sleeping like a boss, learning how to mindfully meditate, practice breathwork, and much more.

    However, these simple tasks might seem impossible for you to do daily. Why?

    Because you haven’t experienced the result yet.

    Why work hard and do things differently, which is very hard especially for your brain when you don’t know the reward?

    I bet a part of you even thinks what you’re doing isn’t even possible and is just a waste of time or someone else is going to sell you a program that won’t work for you.

    You need a purpose to push you forward.

    We will lay out how to begin to find your purpose for anxiety recovery…

    10 Ways to Improve Social Skills to Decrease Anxiety - Episode 41

    Do you worry you have no social skills or people think you’re socially awkward?

    Some of us feel like we don’t know what to talk about with others because deep down we think we’re stupid or not funny. A common tendency is either rambling on and on nervously or not saying anything at all.

    Personally, when I was on my journey of dealing with social anxiety I discovered I must learn how to improve my social skills. Some with social anxiety don’t have a problem with social skills, whereas many others do face an issue or confusion around how to socialize.

    Social anxiety has many layers and one of those is in fact your social skills.

    We feel like we don’t really know how to introduce ourselves to others or what to talk about with people we may have never met or are unfamiliar around. It’s a very common story and we will address how to navigate this problem into a solution.

    Don't Make This Mistake w/ Social Anxiety - Episode 40

    Don't Make This Mistake w/ Social Anxiety - Episode 40

    “Just do it”

    “Just be confident”

    “Just talk to them”

    “Just be yourself”

    By far the biggest mistake people make is going 1 v 1 against social anxiety without any tools or reinforcements other than just forcing it with the phrases above.

    When I was in college, I was in the same situation…

    I would try to walk up to someone sitting alone in the cafeteria or library and force myself to try and talk to them. Almost every single time I would muster up the courage… I felt a part of my brain, my nervous system would hold me back no matter what I tried to do.

    No matter what I did I couldn’t be myself in front of someone else. I had mostly avoided these feelings my whole life by staying small, shy, and quiet, but no more. I had gotten sick and tired of being sick and tired.

    But now, I had finally taken a shot to get out of my comfort zone but I still failed :/

    This led me down the thought pattern of no matter what I do I’m screwed.

    No matter how much effort I put in, there’s nothing I can do to change how I act and my lack of confidence and I’m going to be stuck like this forever!

    Ladies and gentlemen, this mindset and worldview creates the exact environment needed for depression, hopelessness, social isolation, and more :(

    Listen to this episode to learn more on how to avoid the biggest mistake people make with anxiety.

    What Causes Social Anxiety & Shyness? - Episode 39

    What Causes Social Anxiety & Shyness? - Episode 39

    When I first started to understand I might have social anxiety over 6 years ago I was so surprised.

    How did this happen? Why am I like this? What can I do about this?

    I went down the rabbit hole of learning why and how this happens so I could reverse-engineer it out and get my mind back.

    While nobody knows for sure 100% there are some theories we can examine…

    Next week I’m opening up group coaching for a limited time for just 8 of you. We will address each week how to rewire your mind and brain. Spots will go fast and early bird pricing remains for this week only!

    Making Long Lasting Progress with Anxiety - Episode 38

    Making Long Lasting Progress with Anxiety - Episode 38

    A great mindset, reading quotes, Instagram posts, Tik Tok videos, inspirational articles help, but you need to get up & literally change your brain based on neuroscience! Not just today. Today and most of the days of your life.

    It’s hardest to do this at the beginning, especially by yourself, which is why changing yourself is considered by the majority as impossible.

    But it is possible, I’ve done it and countless others.

    Keep in mind doing anything is better than doing nothing. Changing your social media feed and educating yourself more is great and very important...

    However, you can spend years and years reading Instagram quotes and watching reels & Tik Tok’s and not see results or any worthwhile progress.

    Many of you have asked me how to work with me.

    Next week I’m opening up group coaching for a limited time for just 8 of you. We will address each week how to rewire your mind and brain. Spots will go fast and early bird pricing remains for this week only!
