Ep. 12 Overcoming Worry and Anxiety

How to overcome worry and anxiety

Today our conversation is for the chronic worrier. Both of us have always been the worrying type so we shared a few tips and strategies that have helped us overcome it.

We discuss the question that can help you find out whether your worrying is excessive and three specific tips to help you stop those anxious feeling in their tracks. We also talk about how worrying is a choice and how to use it as a “trigger thought” to replace worry with a better feeling like gratitude or peace. Finally, we talk about many of our worries just being thought habits that we can change for our benefit.
