Thank you so much for investing in this course and in your own mental health. It’s been a great joy developing it and I really hope you are able to take something useful from it.
Here’s a quick overview of what we’ll be covering over the next 6 modules:
We’ll cover what anxiety is, and what it isn’t :
– What happens in your body physiologically when you become anxious
– When does anxiety become a problem
– Why doesn’t anxiety go away
We’ll begin to take charge of anxiety through tracking the different levels of anxiety in the body and basing our response on these symptoms
You’ll be able to differentiate between anxiety that is too high and needs to be reduced or regulated and anxiety that is uncomfortable but workable
It’s all about building an awareness of anxiety provoking situations. What are the situations, thoughts, feelings that can trigger an anxiety response. Knowing ahead of time, potentially triggering situations can lead to greater control over anxiety rather than anxiety having control over you.
We’ll learn how uncomfortable feelings and emotions are often the hidden cause of anxiety. We’ll learn the purpose behind our feelings and emotions and why were always meant to feel, rather than suppress or deny our feelings.
We’ll learn about defences or feeling blockers – things that we do, knowingly or unknowingly to push down our feelings. And how we can face and overcome that
Module 6 you will learn some effective ways to continue the skills you’ve picked up and carry them forward into the future. As well as where to go if you need further help
Let’s dive into module 1 and I’ll see you in the next module
- What is anxiety
