Life can be hard. How we treat ourselves either leads us to be resilient, happy and have healthy relationships or leads us to be filled with worry, ‘should haves’ and a ‘what if’ fear about the future. There are an estimated 40 million Americans who struggle with anxiety, according to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA). People often feel powerless but we do possess the power to change our lives. As President Franklin D. Roosevelt, who struggled with Polio, said, “Men are not prisoners of fate, but only of their own minds.” In this presentation, you will learn tools to reduce anxious feelings, gain an understanding of where anxiety comes from and explore ways to stop the negative critical inner voice. Plus, activities and thoughts you can utilize in your day-to-day living to become happier, healthier and more at ease.
