MODULE 2 : Brief Introduction
- Taking Charge of Anxiety (approach, not avoid)
- Anxiety levels
- Tracking your symptoms/identifying your levels – using an example of anxiety occuring in the past week (or recente example that comes to mind) two worksheets – baseline level vs anxiety triggering example level
- Biological vs Psychological symptoms
- Imagined exposure
In Module 1 you found a proven topic for your online course. You also developed a name for your course that clearly conveys the value that your course brings to the table.
And in this module, Module 2, we’re going to build on what you already accomplished.
Specifically, you’re going to build out your first beta course.
A beta course is like a beta version of software. It lets you gauge demand and work out some of the kinks before you launch your product in the world
And in the 4 lessons in Module 2 I’ll walk you through the entire step-by-step process.
- Approach not avoid
- If we can begin to pay curious attention to, rather than ignoring the feelings and anxiety occurring within our bodies, we will have greater self-awareness over our internal experiences. This is absolutely necessary in order to treat anxiety.
- In some cases, simply paying attention to bodily cues and sensations (rather than minimizing, dismissing or ignoring) has been enough to stop panic attacks!
- In others, it leads to a significant reduction in their symptoms.
Still others find with the increased self awareness that their anxiety is a lot more frequent than they had even realized. This can lead to feeling slightly overwhelmed or a temporary increase in symptoms – this is normal and nothing to be alarmed about.
