    How a Big Invisible Ego Thrives on Anxiety - Episode 44

    How a Big Invisible Ego Thrives on Anxiety - Episode 44

    Growing up I was riddled with social anxiety and never confident or sure of myself.

    But, unknowingly I had a huge ego. Maybe I still do, and answering that question honestly for yourself is very telling of how big or small your ego might be…

    We often think having a big ego means you’re loud or overly confident or arrogant.

    Not true. This can actually be completely false.

    Having a big ego means you think you're always right.

    Having a big ego means you think the world is to blame.

    Having a big ego means you think everything else has to change, but not you.

    Having a big ego means you’re always thinking about yourself, yourself, and yourself again, positive or negative.

    I’m not writing this article to insult you or even call you out. That’s your job.

    Personally, I realized I had an ego and separated myself from it in 2015 when I was actually suicidal, depressed, and saw how terrible life can get if you listen to your ego.

    All I can do is share some information, insights, research and get you to think outside of your bubble and more into the real world; where our potential lies.

    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.
