Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness. It is far better to take things as they come along with patience and equanimity.

Chronic anxiety and panic can be intertwined with exhaustion and fatigue. Listen in today to learn the role exhaustion and fatigue play in your anxiety.
3 Steps To Relieve Your Anxiety Fatigue
1) Get into a regular pattern of meditation and have good sleep hygiene
2) Eat real foods, avoid refined foods and sugar
3) Do an activity, such as going for a walk, something good for the body, which will help it get back to baseline
-the exhaustion and fatigue can be a coping mechanism for the body (to avoid the stress that is bringing about the anxiety to begin with)
-being tired of the fatigue can lead to depression, thus any activity can be beneficial, such as listening to uplifting music and walking
-hobbies can be helpful in this way over time

Today, Coach Gina takes a look at how we drop into isolation and how it can work against us as we move through the phases of clearing anxiety-panic. 

Today's tip for making progress is to go on a weekly adventure: museum, zoo, train ride, etc, over time you can go to bigger things (such as a concert). A part time job, a church, a hobby, all could be useful.

In this episode, Coach Gina explores the importance of shifting out of anxiety focused living.  If you are seeing things through an attitude of gratitude lens, your experience of the world is by default much more peaceful.  Your thoughts can act as self-fulfilling prophecies, especially with expectations of anxiety (based on plans for future actions or environments).  Not everyone is aware of their expectations for anxiety and that they help precipitate anxious states.

Action steps to change the anxiety lens you are looking though:

1) Awareness: you need to be aware you are doing it and being so will remove the power from the lens

2) Relaxation: some kind of daily meditation or relaxation is a critical and very helpful first step that can change your brain and view your environment differently

3) Don't just take off the lens of anxiety: replace it with something better (gratitude, peace, happy thoughts)
