Welcome back for the post-vacation episode. Today we are talking about Anxiety - my arch nemesis and my primary barrier to being named the coolest person on the planet.
We’ll talk about what Anxiety is and what it can feel like and why it is actually more common than people think!
I share the official DMS 5 criteria for Generalized Anxiety Disorder and some myths surrounding Anxiety.
We also take a peek into my own experience with daily anxiety and the formal and informal ways that we can learn to better manage our Anxiety symptoms.
Next week we'll explore the myriad of ways to find a new hobby from online, to personal recommendation, to dun, dun, DUN – going outside of our house and comfort zone.
