  1. Thank you for this. I am exactly here, at this very moment, and your post is invaluable. I do have a question though. Could you explain a little more about how not to suppress the anxiety while challenging it? I find combining acceptance and challenging thoughts confusing. Thanks!

    • Hi Suzanne – thanks for your comment and question. I can definitely talk more about that in a future blog post. Stay tuned – happy holiday and thanks for reading! :-)

      • Will do!

      • Hi Suzanne – I have scheduled the piece to run in December – thanks again for your question! :-)

  2. Hey, I luv ur thoughts on this. As I was reading it, I was so tense I couldn’t breathe. That’s how scared I am of relaxing, lol! I would love to get to the place where I could do an exercise without freaking out, but I don’t know when that’s going to be! I do need to start the process though.

    • Hi Mich – thanks so much for the kind words and for sharing your thoughts in return!

Awareness (for me at least) has been THE key to transforming my relationship with habitual anxiety. Please keep me posted on how you are doing! :-)

  3. As you know I have been meditating for quite a while now and find it to be a necessary part of my day….keeps me centered and hopefully sane.

    • Hi Caron – I agree meditation is such a GREAT practice…I don’t know what I’d do without it! It is nice to know we share that. :-)
