In today's episode, Gina outlines five useful ways to avoid anxiety, or in other words, to have an anti-anxiety mind.  At the core of these suggestions lies a duality of emotion that we can use to guide ourselves:  open-mindedness, flexibility and curiosity on one hand, and closed-mindedness, rigidity and frustration on the other hand.  Using the techniques suggested in this podcast, we can cultivate a flexibility and open-mindedness that can help us resolve our anxious state.

In this episode, Gina offers listeners advice for how to better cope with the experience of lightheaded and dizzy feelings.  Central to the experience of lightheadedness and dizziness during episodes of high anxiety is how we breathe.  Excess oxygen from increased rate of breathing, without any physical outlet, such as running, will make anxiety states more intense.  Steps to take to minimize dizziness and lightheadedness:
1) Breathing exercises (deep belly breathing)
2) Be more active
3) Meditation
4) Generally reduce overall anxiety
