Anxiety Advice and Tips

Anxiety

{a feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease about something with an uncertain outcome}

Over anxiousness can be learnt, it can be genetic, and can be caused by events within or out of your control. We have evolved to have this fight or flight response, but sometimes it doesn’t work in our favour.

Imagine your life with less anxiety – imagine the stress of it floating away off into the ether – and your chest is free to breathe easy and your mind is calm and quiet…

If that puts a smile on your face; there are many ways to get closer to that freedom.

We live in a somewhat anxiety provoking society, but the good news is that being over anxious is a brain pattern and set of physiological responses that can be retrained.

Russell Brand on anxiety

Russell Brand | Entertainer & Mentor

"All forms of discomfort can be interpreted as communicative. You know there is a sort of very materialistic perspective; that it's just a chemical imbalance you can pop a pill and redress that shit... But I think, no, there's something that wants to be heard."

Marcus Morris | NBA Basketball Player

"It may sound silly, but just closing my eyes in a dark room and breathing for 10 minutes a day helps me. I know lots of guys who are dealing with some kind of anxiety and depression ... Talking to [a therapist] released so much of that stress for me."

Human Givens for Below the Bush

Denise Winn | Human Givens therapist

"You are not an anxious person. You are person who can be hit by anxiety – and can learn to handle it. And the more you do something different successfully in those stressful situations, the more your brain learns to expect to cope."
