Now, more than ever, we need our solitude. Being alone gives us the power to regulate and adjust our lives. It can teach us fortitude and the ability to satisfy our own needs. A restorer of energy, the stillness of alone experiences provides us with much-needed rest. It brings forth our longing to explore, our curiosity about the unknown, our will to be an individual, our hopes for freedom. Alone time is fuel for life. —Dr. Ester Buchholz

Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally. This kind of attention nurtures greater awareness, clarity, and acceptance of the present-moment reality. It wakes u up to the fact that our lives unfold only in moments If we are not fully present for many of those moments, we may not only miss what is most valuable in our lives but also fail to realize the richness and the depth of our possibilities for growth and transformation. -Jon Kabat-Zinn

In today's episode, Gina discusses TMS and the work of Dr. Sarno and former ACP guest Steve Ozanich.  Many who struggle with TMS and anxiety suffer from excessively "living in the head".  Instead of doing, many will just think about it and get stuck in what-if scenarios, never acting or getting a full experience of life.  Gina recommends movement and embracing the body to get out of what can be torturous thought-cycles.

In this episode, Gina discusses how different parts of the brain function differently according to their developmental age (how long ago and for what purpose various parts of the brain developed and thus continue to function) and how we can use this knowledge to reduce our anxiety.  The most ancient part of our brain, the "lizard brain", is the part of our brain associated with our basic survival functions.  Listen in as Gina describes how being aware of how this lizard brain functions and how to address it with the other parts of our brain and being can improve our struggle with anxiety.

In this episode, Gina discusses a critical point within our experience of anxiety:  the gap between the anxiety stimulus (environmental factor that triggers our anxiety) and our response.  Gina argues that within this space lies the great power to choose how to interpret a stimulus and how to choose what our optimal response to this stimulus will be.  Within this response lies an opportunity to grow, to change and to step into the best version of ourself.

What is anxiety?

Quote:

Everything can be taken from a man but one thing; the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way. -Victor Frankl
