M2L1 – Taking Charge of Anxiety

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.
