Anxiety shows up in many ways and has a habit of morphing its presentation. Today it might feel like you can’t get enough done fast enough while tomorrow binge watching Netflix might be the furthest you’ll get.
As Andy Puddicombe, founder and former monk puts it, “The problem with anxiety is that it inhibits our ability to deal with the issue that’s caused it in the first place. It makes our capacity for rational thought dip, while it, itself, begins to spiral out of control. This makes it harder to address the issue and causes genuine misery to ourselves and those around us.”
There are real tools and strategies that you can learn to use as you move away from anxiety and toward addressing the issues that caused it to start with.
