    IAA 59 - Greatest Hits - I'm Anxious About Procrastination

    IAA 59 - Greatest Hits - I'm Anxious About Procrastination

    We all struggle with procrastination, so if you're currently avoiding something, listening to this re-release of one of our greatest hits is a great way to not do whatever you're supposed to do!


    In this episode, Chris & Allison talk about the reasons why procrastination is so anxiety-inducing (and anxiety-perpetuating) and the psychology behind why we do it, even though we know it's so bad for us.


    We hope you enjoy, and remember you can always join us in our Facebook group, "We're Anxious About."

    IAA 58 - Greatest Hits - I'm Anxious About the Past

    In this episode, Chris and Allison take a trip down memory lane, though probably not in the classic sense of the phrase. 


    This episode remains consistently in the top ten downloaded episodes for I'm Anxious About, and Allison and Chris would like to think it's for good reason. 


    It came out at a time when the podcast was really taking off, and your cohosts were starting to get a bit more comfortable diving deep.

    IAA 56: I'm Anxious About Forgetting Things

    IAA 56: I'm Anxious About Forgetting Things

    Chris & Allison are both forgetful beings (see: the fact that Allison forgot to send the files to the editor after finishing recording, which is why this episode is a week later than usual.) And of course, that gives them a lot to be anxious about!


    In this episode, Chris & Allison discuss why forgetting things is particularly fraught for those with anxiety, and how to extend yourself grace about the things you forget, as well as why the anxious brain might be more forgetful than others.

    IAA 55: I'm Anxious About Caffeine

    IAA 55: I'm Anxious About Caffeine

    Allison and Chris are on opposite sides of the spectrum when it comes to caffeine. Allison refuses to move a finger without being well-caffeinated where as Chris, once caffeinated, can't really stop moving his fingers. 


    That, to be fair, is an exaggeration on both accounts, but what are show notes for if not to exaggerate?


    They explore whether all caffeine is created equal and whether tea may still be a viable option for those who don't drink coffee, how caffeine can both help and hinder the anxious brain, and a whole lot more.

    IAA 54: I'm Anxious About Live Music

    IAA 54: I'm Anxious About Live Music

    As the world starts to slowly inch its way back to the old normal, there are some things that Chris & Allison have to face that haven't been A Thing in over a year, like live music. While Chris is excited to start tapping his feet to the beat again, Allison has a little more trepidation and has to confront her fears of crowds and enthusiastic acoustic guitar players who make too much eye contact.

I’m Anxious About Restaurants

This is so hilarious. It’s a great way to spend our time since we are not able to do things right now. Also, it makes me feel better to know I’m not the only crazy person out there! Thank you Allison and Christopher! Not only do I enjoy reading and listening to you guys when it’s travel related, but it’s good to know that you guys have found something to talk about that I’m willing to bet a lot of us can relate to! It’s got me really thinking how to deal better with my own anxieties!
