LISTEN HERE ^^^^

Overcoming anxiety involves courage.  There’s no way around this.  You must be courageous to directly confront the things you fear the most.  This is the only way to learn that you never needed to be afraid to begin with.  Finding and displaying courage is the part that trips most people up, but its in you, and there’s no magic trick involved.  So many people think they must find a way to lower the fear before acting, that they must “learn” to be brave.  But that’s not the way.  Courage is acting even when terrified, so ultimately this is something you must do along the way.

Everyone has courage in them.  Everyone.  Have faith that you were born brave, because you were.

Hiding from anxiety. Its really not okay.

Overcoming anxiety, panic and agoraphobia requires the motivation to be active in your recovery. In this episode we’ll look at how the motivation to begin your recovery derives from personal responsibility and accepting that giving in to your fears is really not okay. A bit of a controversial view on things, but worth checking out, so give it a listen.

Anxiety is physical. Anxiety disorders are cognitive.

Anxiety is a physical and physiological thing.  We feel it in our bodies.

Anxiety DISORDERS are cognitive, not physical.  A disorder is defined when the physical sensations are mistakenly treated as real danger, and lifestyle is modified to avoid those sensations and feelings.  This is a learning/cognitive issue.  This is why cognitive and behavioral approaches to anxiety disorders are the most effective treatments we have and why simply trying to knock down symptoms doesn’t really work.

Understanding this concept and incorporating it into your approach to anxiety is an important step toward improvement. Suggestions are given on how to change your focus and how to start identifying the reactions to anxiety that are the true problem.
