What is Chaos

Well, there is real chaos and perceived chaos. Much of what happens in your world, brain and body can feel chaotic. But with some simple skills and accessing resources, both real and perceived chaos can be managed. This gives me hope! Thanks so much.

Thanking your Mind

You know, many people don't even get that Thanksgiving (and holidays / celebrations in general) are chaotic for some people. I appreciate that disordered eating was addressed here, as I believe it is a very important topic. I do know gratitude is a big thing these days, but I really never thought to thank my anxious mind for what it's trying to do to help me! I appreciated learning how anxiety and chaos can be experienced differently, through gratitude. "Thanks, oh mind of mine! And now, time to take it down a notch." Wonderfully done.

Normalizing chaos

Tracy has such a soothing voice and I love her real-life stories that help me relate and use her tips and tools in my own life.
