    #524: This week on the Anxiety Slayer Podcast we’re talking about the importance of celebrating every step you take to feel better
    Anxiety is such a big issue that we sometimes forget the power of the little things - little things like your breath, meditation, and other different ways to relax. Yet, small though they are, the difference these little things can make in managing stress and anxiety is huge.

    Best of Anxiety Slayer: How to regain calm when anxiety hijacks your brain

    Best of Anxiety Slayer: How to regain calm when anxiety hijacks your brain

    Happy Holidays! We hope you are enjoying the season with your loved ones. Enjoy the most popular Anxiety Slayer episodes we produced in 2020!
    Anxiety frequently hijacks our thinking with a fearful narrative. For example: “what if” thoughts or worst-case scenarios.
     
    The body responds as if those fearful thoughts are true—because it doesn’t know the difference between a real threat and imagined scenarios. Today we share how you can regain calm when anxiety hijacks your mind.

    Best of Anxiety Slayer: For freedom from anxiety, ban these words from your self-talk

    Best of Anxiety Slayer: For freedom from anxiety, ban these words from your self-talk

    Enjoy the most popular Anxiety Slayer episodes we produced in 2020! Language is the painter of our psychological experiences. If we think and talk about joy and hope, we will feel joy and hope. But if our thoughts and dialogue are rooted in anxiety and fear, that is how we feel. You can change this by banning certain words from your self-talk.
