Quote: 
One of the best pieces of advice I ever got was from a horse master. He told me to go slow to go fast. I think that applies to everything in life. We live as though there aren’t enough hours in the day but if we do each thing calmly and carefully we will get it done quicker and with much less stress.
– Viggo Mortensen

Many people do not understand anxiety, even anxiety sufferers do not understand anxiety.  In this episode, Gina discusses this issue and how to bring the topic up with friends and family.

Seven action steps you can take when telling people about your anxiety:

1) Don't be afraid to tell people

2) Be clear that you are not seeking help from people

3) Don't be too serious about it

4) Let them know you realize it will be hard for them to understand

5) Reassure them that the anxiety does not mean you are fragile and must be excluded from activities

6) Be open to questions

7) Let them know nobody would choose to live this way and that you do not want to live with anxiety

2) Mindfulness: using relaxation and meditation to improve your state
3) To actually take and make a process out of the differentiation between "I am anxious" and "I feel anxious"

As a doctor, let me tell you what self-love does: It improves your hearing, your eyesight, lowers your blood pressure, increases pulmonary function, cardiac output, and helps to wire the musculature. So, if we had a rampant epidemic of self-love then our healthcare costs would go down dramatically. So, this isn’t just some little frou-frou new age notion, oh love yourself, honey. This is hardcore science.
