How to Stop Worrying for Good

How to Stop Worrying for Good

Few things are as ubiquitous as worry. We all say it. We all do it. And it steals your joy, my darling. Worry takes you out of the present moment and keeps you from taking action to make your life the intentional thoughtful life you dream of living. Today, I’ll be detailing the steps you…
Worry and Your Nervous System

Worry and Your Nervous System

Do you find yourself rolling around in worry, not taking action in your life or spinning in your thoughts about what a symptom or a situation could mean, feeling paralyzed by not knowing the future, spending your time now worrying about something that might happen, or might not?
