  1. The same part of our brain, that protected us from being by the sabre toothed tiger still exists, so we are always anticipating danger, it keeps us alive.

    Anxiety is not all negative, we need it for survival, but if we pay attention to it, we can examine whether or not it is necessary at this moment. Thoughts are just thoughts they are not facts. If we attach a story to the thought, thats when the anxiety starts to build. Investigate it, break it down, feel it in the body, and know this too shall pass.

  2. The anxiety is costing me my health… I don’t know what this means but several times recently my husband comes in the room while I’m watching TV and he’s convinced I’m part of the show! Tonight I’m watching a 1950s Alfred Hitchcock murder mystery and he wants to know how I am involved!. Yes, anxiety is hard to avoid.
