The Anxiety Coaches Podcast - Relief from Anxiety, Panic, and PTSD

In this episode, Gina answers a listener question about persistent pain that exists despite medical reports indicating no physiological problems.  Gina delves into the work of the late Dr. Sarno and former guest Steve Ozanich concerning The Mind-body Syndrome (also known as TMS), a frequent cause of otherwise unexplainable pain in the body. Listen in as Gina strives to help shed light on how anxiety relating to past trauma or emotional disturbance can cause pain in the body and how to heal and improve the situation.

Quote:  We did not ask for this room or this music; we were invited in. Therefore, because the dark surrounds us, let us turn our faces toward the light. Let us endure hardship to be grateful for plenty...We did not ask for this room or this music. But because we are here, let us dance. -Stephen King

In this episode, Gina shares with listeners the wisdom of Leo Babauta, who outlines simple steps that can be taken to become more peaceful and calm.  Leo follows the advice of his calm motto: "No big deal."  There are things we can do to change the situation and often times, we cannot act to change the situation.  Making forward progress towards our goal when we can act and accepting our limitations when we can't act can help us to find the calmness that we seek.
