Stress 101: Managing Anxiety

As a Licensed Counselor near Lafayette Hill, PA, I hear how our 24/7 world can be stressful causing otherwise successful people to feel like their thoughts have been hijacked by anxiety.

The worry bully in our brains.

Check out this 10 min. video (click full screen mode icon on right once open) and find out about what works best to manage anxiety and stress.

Hint: certain types of counseling, CBT and Mindfulness, can be part of a simple yet effective stress management strategy.

Stress can interfere with your relationships and your career since focus, motivation, productivity, decisions, perspective, and concentration are affected too.

Change in appetite, racing heart, poor sleep, muscle tension, panic attacks, irritability, or difficulty breathing: stress can show up in physical symptoms.

Depression (low mood, tension, low energy, change in sleep or appetite, loss of interest in activities, feeling helpless or hopeless) and Anxiety can be present at the same time.


Is it time to tell the negative committee in your head to sit down and shut up?

Through mindfulness and CBT you may be able to put your mind under new management.
