One way your anxiety will always try to hold you back


In this week's podcast we're talking about a trick of the mind that can stop us Slaying our Anxiety.



Notes from the podcast

Anxiety is a stuck state

The mind can get caught up in the stickiness of inaction and often sees our suffering as a permanent state. Anxiety clouds our thinking and can make taking action challenging. But that’s exactly what we need to do!

Two anxiety snags to watch out for:

1. Your mind might tell you nothing works

2. Anxiety may keep you isolated

An anxious mind might tell you:

- No-one understands

- There is something wrong with me

Wisdom teaching on the nature of the mind

For him who has conquered the mind, the mind is the best of friends; but for one who has failed to do so, his very mind will be the greatest enemy. Bhagavad-gita 6.6


The solution? Don’t listen and take action


One step at a time

Daily acts of self-care

“What’s worthwhile takes a while.” Dr Vasant Lad

Dr Kelly Turner PhD researcher in cancer remission - campaigns to use the term radical remission rather than spontaneous remission because it reflects the action people take over time to turn cancer around. Anxiety is the same.

Radical Anxiety Remission takes some work.

To think you are alone and nothing will work is a trick or your mind. It’s not your mind being your friend.

It doesn’t mean you can’t make rapid progress, but you do need to start.
