“Not knowing what's causing it is the worst!" and "How can I fix myself if I can't find where I'm broken?”
In this episode, Ananga is sharing how Ayurveda's understanding of the mind helped her overcome her own anxiety and sharing some teachings that we hope will support you too.

Notes from the show:
You don’t need to know the cause of your anxiety to get help. There are many tools and techniques that can support you without knowing the cause.
We tend to think we have to figure it all out for ourselves, but when the mind is already unsettled we just get more entangled in anxiety.
- The mind has a negative bias and tends to zoom in on our worries
- The mind isn’t in charge
- You’re not your mind and you are not your thoughts.
- The real you can’t be broken, though it can feel like it.
- Loving observation
