Dealing with Anxiety: Using the Strength of an Anxious Mind to Calm Anxiety
Blog post on Hey Sigmund By Karen Young
Karen Young believes that, "anxiety exists on a spectrum and we all experience it at some level. We wouldn’t be human if we didn’t. Anxiety is a very normal response from a strong, healthy brain that thinks there might be trouble about, and instantly responds by making us stronger, faster, more powerful, more alert versions of ourselves."
Young advocates for harnessing the strength of an anxious mind, and using the aspects of mindfulness in the midst of anxiety to find calm.
