TAGP 82: How The System Created And Fuels Your Generalized Anxiety  

"Open Your Eyes, Look Within. Are You Satisfied With The Life You're Living?"
The system bombards you with learning stuff you don't need. The system subliminally teaches you to fear things that don't need fearing. The system fuels your anxiety so you fall in line with today's first line of treatments. Welcome to the system.

You came to this world as a blank slate, you were a sponge absorbing all the information presented to you and installing fear after fear into your life. You came to this world with only two fears; The fear of loud noises, and the fear of falling. Generalized anxiety for the most part wasn't your fault, but it is your responsibility to overcome.

"It's In Your Hands Now, Just Open Your Eyes."

We're told to shoot for our dreams without being shown how to deal with obstacles. Dealing with those obstacles are the very things we need to learn growing up to succeed over things that don't make us feel right. But no one teaches us these lessons, and our parents can't teach us what they don't know. This is a dangerous place to be if you never stop and question your own beliefs.

Because if you don't learn how to solve problems in this lifetime, the world will bombard you with anxiety provoking experiences one after another. Life truly begins when you gain a sense of direction in your life and you begin understanding one very important lesson:
You are not your past, and you are not this system.
You have a creative genius within you itching to be connected to, if only you would listen in silence, and understand that there will be a price to pay for this change you want to create. Only question is are you willing to pay the price, and become temporary uncomfortable as you begin your path towards overcoming Generalized Anxiety.

The Anxiety Guy Podcast #82 Will Share:

The unconscious reasons for why generalized anxiety continues to play out in your life
Why overcoming generalized anxiety is such an uphill climb for you
How the system prevents you from anxiety recovery

TAGP 81: The Unconscious Fears Of Overcoming Health Anxiety  

"Overcoming Health Anxiety Means Committing To A New Reality That You Want To Live In."
Imagine for a second that you're trying to lose 50 pounds of excess weight. You religiously diet, exercise, and do everything by the book, but hold a belief in your unconscious mind that you will always be overweight. What will the result be? You guessed it, no progress whatsoever. Why is this the case you may ask?

Because we inherently resist anything that contradicts with how we see ourselves, how we thinking others will see us, and anything that goes against our core beliefs.

Overcoming health anxiety also has its unconscious roadblocks, and I see it daily with people I work with through the program. These unconscious fears can be altered, and you can once again create the same brain circuitry you once lived with prior to health anxiety and GAD. But you must first be aware of them, because everything starts with self awareness.

The memories that we hold onto that create pairings in our minds prevent us from achieving what we want to in this world. Most people try and change their external circumstances before changing their internal ones. Most people look for the magic pill or 1 skill set that will help in overcoming health anxiety and are gravely disappointed when something they try doesn't work.

How Could It? You Have No History Of Success Behind This New Approach, So Why Would Your Anxiously Programmed Mind Accept?

It won't, but we can begin to change this programming. By understanding the 4 stages to overcoming health anxiety in this episode of The Anxiety Guy Podcast, and gaining a deeper understanding of your core beliefs that hang onto this cycle of health anxiety, you will be well on your way to turning your inner critical voice into your true voice guided by your higher self.

In Episode #81 Of The Anxiety Guy Podcast Here's What We'll Be Look Into:

What separates overcoming health anxiety from managing health anxiety
How the power of your subconscious mind holds the key to living the warrior lifestyle
Why knowledge and imagination are crucial to overcoming health anxiety

TAGP 80: My Incredible Third Eye Awakening (Pineal Gland Activation)  

"Life Is Filled With Illusion Pretending To Be The Truth."
The deepest most spiritual Anxiety Guy Podcast episode yet. For the first time I want to reveal exactly what sort of experiences took place during my anxiety recovery which led to my third eye awakening. Many people don't know what the the third eye is, or what use the pineal gland may be to their lives.

It's best to understand the third eye as the eye of knowledge and wisdom. A sense of moving from dulness, illusion, to the divine and the light. I can also explain my third eye awakening experience as a discovery within my higher intelligence and intuition. The power is great, and for the first time ever a third eye awakening experience will be connected to an anxiety recovery process.
Let's Understand This Third Eye Awakening, And Spirituality A Little Better
"When You Are Evolving To Your Higher Self The Road Seems Lonely. But You Are Simply Shedding Energies That No Longer Match The Frequency Of Your Destiny."

Everyone has a third eye, but not everyone knows it, understands it, or is capable of opening it. The outside forces in the environment and certain products that I'll be talking about in this episode hinder our potentials and stop us from accessing our higher intelligence.

Awareness Is Key

99% of people live by picking up the crumbs on the tables left over by the higher powers to be. Our standards have lowered, and with it our drive towards understanding. This episode of The Anxiety Guy Podcast will change everything for you. Get ready to connect with a higher intelligence, one that is waiting for you to tap into and reach your full potentials.

In This Powerful Episode Of The Anxiety Guy Podcast I Reveal:

The exact moments I experienced a third eye awakening experience and what happened
Why most people will never truly ever see
How to begin tapping into a third eye awakening experience and activating your pineal gland

TAGP 79: The 5 Stages Of The Anxiety Trance  

"The Most Common Way People Give Up Their Power Is By Thinking They Don't Have Any."
There was a time in my life where life went fast, painfully fast. I was in an anxiety trance and didn't even realize it. I couldn't feel (no emotions), I couldn't hear (too internal), and I couldn't see (again, way to internally focused). The anxiety trance is a seemingly never-ending journey of coping and managing to get by, but that simply isn't good enough.

There are 4 states of the mind which are:

Beta - Normal awake state, busy, many thoughts, very active mind
Alpha - Day dreaming, relaxed, meditative
Theta - Deep trance, inspirational
Delta - Asleep, no conscious awareness

Most people during awakened hours go through life in a beta state rarely tapping into the power of the alpha, or theta. This may come as no surprise to many considering the pressures we feel from the world. We have to be the best employee, best husband/wife, father, friend, driver, time manager etc.

"I Started To Understand Myself Only When I Destroyed Myself. In The Process Of Progress And Recovery I Began To Realize Who I Truly Was."

This sort of endless focus on being perfect everyday can make a person very imperfect. Its draining, and depletes people to the point where thinking becomes painful. For me the very thought of taking control of my life was painful, I always searched for the quick cure for my anxiety trance, health anxiety, generalized anxiety etc, with no real lasting success.

In Episode #79 Of The Anxiety Guy Podcast I Discuss:

How you got into the anxiety trance in the first place
Why society craves fear and drama
The fastest way to get out of the anxiety trance and back into fulfillment

TAGP 78: Here’s What’s Keeping Your Panic And Anxiety Alive  

"Nobody Realizes The Tremendous Amounts Of Energy Some People Expend Trying To Be And Feel Normal."
Anger, bewilderment, regret, hesitation, need I go on about life with panic and anxiety? It's important to understand what not to do, as much as what to do when confronted with panic and anxiety. Since we're faced with a bombardment of information from the world on a daily basis, most people feel like they don't even have the time to organize their own thoughts.

I Call This State Of Being The Pressure Cooker! A State That Fuels Panic And Anxiety.

That's why i'm so excited to bring you this podcast episode, because I've lived it, a lot! It sucks, but there are lessons to be learned. Remember one of the many beautiful NLP presuppositions which states that there is no failure only feedback. Which means the negative state we find ourselves in on a daily basis, is a call for action from our subconscious minds.

Our subconscious minds bring up memories from the past asking us what to do with this information. If we do nothing to change it, the meaning stays the same, nothing is altered, and the state goes on until the next time it pops up. 

The mind is very open to change, remember that. Your subconscious mind loves you unconditionally, whether you believe it right now or not. This journey will create a power within that you and many other people will be proud of. You will take these lessons and help your loved ones, friends etc overcome their own challenges. So with that said...

Here Are The Top 3 Lessons We'll Be Learning From This Episode: 

What you do unconsciously to keep panic and anxiety alive
How to begin changing your version of reality which will lead to less stress and anxiousness
How changing this one habit can shift your state of panic and anxiety quickly

TAGP 77: Dealing With Anxiety The Right Way  

"When You Begin Realizing That You Have More Control Than You Originally Thought Over Yourself, Change Happens."
That moment, the moment you realize something that never occurred to you before, it's magic. Realizations like thoughts are just thoughts, we have 60,000 thoughts a day so why do I focus on the ones that keep me anxious, and that negative feelings can be a signal and a lesson are the golden nuggets that lead to recovery.

Dealing with anxiety properly is vital especially if our daily activities are affected by it. Anxiety tends to be a normal part of everyday life for many people worldwide. We feel anxious when involved in activities such as when faced with a problem at our place of work, making an important decision or taking a test. For an individual with an anxiety disorder, this feeling does not go away easily and gets worse over time. The feeling interferes with daily activities such as school work, relationships, leisure time, and performance at work.
But Thankfully The Anxiety Guy Podcast Is A No Sugar Coating Approach To Dealing With Anxiety
For people with an anxiety disorder, a combination of NLP and CBT is the most qualified form of treatment on how to deal with anxiety. In the United States and the United Kingdom, CBT is the treatment of choice for mental disorder such as OCD, post- traumatic stress disorder, bulimia, depression and also neurological condition chronic fatigue syndrome.

In Episode #77 off The Anxiety Guy Podcast we'll be gaining a deeper understanding on the best ways of dealing with anxiety by:

Learning how to begin dealing with anxiety resistance
Gaining momentum over anxiety quickly
Understanding how to win the convincing game with the anxious side of your mind

TAGP 76: Top 10 Ways To Overcome Sleep Anxiety  

"Sleep Is The Most Important Part Of Recovery."
Anxiety is a state of nervousness or agitation, especially prevalent when we are under extreme stress or are facing a difficult situation in our lives that must be resolved. The problem with sleep anxiety is that it can heighten the amygdala's (your fight or flight response) interest, and you may find yourself sensitive to everyday things.

In episode #76 of the anxiety guy podcast I want to make sure that each and every sleep anxiety sufferer out there begins getting relief. This relief may not come overnight, but with careful attention to the very things in your environment, and your thought patterns, sleep anxiety relief is within your grasp.

Sleep Is The Best Form Of Meditation...

Someone once told me. During my health anxiety and generalized anxiety struggles there were times where I was exhausted, and didn't know whether to to try and sleep or to meditate. If I slept I would miss an opportunity to focus on my breathing patterns and mindfulness. If I meditated I would be exhausted the next day. What's a sufferer to do? I thought to myself.
Sleep Anxiety Can Cause Nightmares, Sleep Disturbances, And Much More
If nightmares disturb your sleep, if you wake suddenly in the night, or if you tend to sleepwalk, these are important signs. Other symptoms can include restless legs, insomnia or sleep interference. Researchers have determined that people who experience an interruption in their sleep patterns are likely to see a dramatic increase in this disturbance later on. They also suggest that there is a high correlation between insomnia and anxiety.

Since anxiety can be directly attributed to the loss of sleep and interruptions during the night, remedying the anxiety will kill two birds with one stone. In episode #76 of the anxiety guy podcast we learn about:

What sleep debt feels like, and what to do about it
How REM sleep is the deepest type of sleep
The #1 thing you must do today to begin overcoming sleep anxiety

TAGP 75: Top 10 Words Of Wisdom You Need To Hear Today  

"In Life What You Really Want, Will Never Come Easily."
Inspiration is important, very important. These words of wisdom will begin to help create a vision for your life. Without a vision our minds don't know what direction to go, so we become stale. Brooding in our misery of how difficult everything is.

Inspiration often comes during the task you're involved in, and after the task is completed. Not before. This is especially the case if you happen to be feeling depressed, anxious, angry or ‘off’ in some other kind of way. As you NOW ACT and keep ACTING NOW, that is when the drive and belief begins to build within you.

As inspiration builds, more empowering thoughts and feelings tend to follow closely behind

Have you ever felt un-motivated to go to work, exercise, go out, but did it anyway? And, the more you did it, the more motivated you started to feel and by the end of it you were feeling really inspired and driven to do more?

Of course! That is because motivation is the reward, not the starting point. All acts require the most effort in the beginning. Starting is the hardest part. When you keep ACTING NOW, it becomes easier, more motivating and more satisfying.

It’s like pushing a boulder down a hill. The first big push is the hardest, but once you’re rolling it becomes easier and easier. Then when you feel the reward of getting to the bottom of the hill, that’s when you feel the most motivated - after it’s over.

These Words Of Wisdom Will Provide You With The Fuel To Begin, Or Stay On Track Towards A Definite Purpose

Think of it this way. It will not matter what you think, if you don’t act in the way you want to act. Without acting now, your beliefs will lead you nowhere. You will start to develop new disempowering beliefs because you can’t lie to yourself. This is why people who use affirmations without doing anything to act on them, become depressed.

The truth behind motivation
How words of wisdom such as these can be used properly
Why most people stay stuck in their lives

TAGP 74: Does Luck Play A Part In Health Anxiety Recovery?  

"Victims Believe In Luck, Warriors Believe In Cause And Effect."
The pain of going through health anxiety is very real. Many other challenges like GAD and Panic Disorder can also jump on the bandwagon and can overwhelm even the strongest willed people. At the point of severe health anxiety someone might even believe that the way back will be like climbing Mount Everest.

It's What I Believed For Years

Little did I realize at the time though that my mind was open to change. It was available to ride the wave of anxiety symptoms, it was available to change my past beliefs around health and the fear of death, and also it was open to ruminating over rational though patterns instead.

Years later today, long after my initial health anxiety recovery I am faced with the words "how did you get so lucky" on a daily basis. I quickly feel the pain of health anxiety suffering from these people, while at the same time feel the need to explain the truth.
"The truth doesn't come with a serving up motivational videos and inspirational quotes thoughts."
The truth doesn't come from saying things like 'man up' or 'learn to relax.' The truth is that understanding is power. The understanding of how the mind interprets threats, and how we must begin speaking the language of our Cortex (thinking brain) and our Amygdala (Emotional Brain) if we want to reach the point of natural health anxiety recovery.

Here Are The Main Topics We'll Be Discussing In The Anxiety Guy Podcast #74:

How changing mindsets from needing instant relief to long term progress is key
How hope and faith play no role in anyones true health anxiety recovery
How simple realizations after gaining proper knowledge can bring understanding and relief

TAGP 73: Channeling The Power Of Your Subconscious Mind  

"Whether You Think You Can Or Think You Cant, You're Right." Henry Ford

Your subconscious mind records your every emotional reaction to each experience you have, think about this for a second. Why do happy people stay happy no matter what crosses their paths, and negative people stay negative?
Simply Because Your Subconscious Can't Differentiate Between What's Good Or Bad, It's All Information To The Subconscious Mind.
Judging the quality of information received doesn't work well with the subconscious mind. But it will keep you focused on information that keeps you feeling the way you do, because it believe that's what's kept you alive all this time.

As long as someone sees themselves as anxious, the subconscious mind will continuously sort for information that keeps them anxious. That's why lucky people get luckier, and people that play the victim care everyday keep digging themselves in deeper and deeper holes in life.

Let's Remember That It Always Comes Down To The Amount Of Repetition That Takes Place Before The Subconscious Mind Stores It And Activates It In The Future. 

This is why habits are so important, and self awareness is the key to changing habits. But in my 6 year struggle with health anxiety and GAD I didn't know how to think, only react! If an emotion popped up that I disliked, I reacted. If a thought was brought to my awareness, I reacted. I had no self control at all.

I then realized that when I started to act in awareness of my habits, my higher self acted as a guardian for my mind. This allowed me to step aside and see my thoughts and emotions from a new perspective. One that put the power right back into my hands, and soon your hands as well.

TAGP 72: My Health Anxiety Journey Through Medications, Support, And Setbacks  

"Life Gave Me The Biggest Beating Imaginable, And It Wasn't Until I Learned The Lesson That I Succeeded."

Sometimes when you hear the health anxiety journey and recovery story first hand it adds much relief. Medications, anxiety support teams, and setbacks are something every health anxiety sufferer thinks of and experiences in their journey. Which is the inspiration behind this anxiety guy podcast episode.

The Definition Of Insanity Is Partaking In The Same Patterns And Habits And Expecting A Different Result

Which is what I did for many years. Then I realized that something had to give, so I took my doctors advice and started antidepressants and anti anxiety medications. Let's just say they both sucked royally for me. The other confusing arena is the anxiety support teams:

Who to turn to?
Who Will Listen?
And For goodness sake who has some half decent advice based around helping me to actually progress?

Of course we can't forget the inevitable, setbacks. Everyone has them during their health anxiety journey towards recovery. Why? Because your subconscious mind refuses to accept anything that doesn't fit your current beliefs and values. So as a whim, calmly, in the back of your mind it says to you:
"You're Expecting Me To Take This New Thought Or Skill Set You Just learned, And Run With It With No History Of Success Behind It?"
Welcome to the topsy turvy world of convincing your subconscious mind that you are a healthy, empowered, capable, loving, grateful, and fearless person. It takes time, it takes tears, and it takes some pain to re-condition your mind and to get it to be something you can rely on again, instead of your own worst enemy.

In Episode #72 Of The Anxiety Guy Podcast I Share:

How one anti anxiety medication almost led me to taking my own life
Why most health anxiety support people fail to actually help
How you can shift your mindset so that setbacks become a positive thing

TAGP 71: The #1 Factor In Health Anxiety Recovery  

"Health Anxiety Isn't Your Fault, But It Is Your Responsibility To Overcome." Dennis Simsek

The overwhelming amount of information in today's world can drive a health anxiety sufferer mad. This piece of advice, his comment, that book, next thing you know the light at the end of the tunnel becomes smaller and smaller. This was my journey for over 6 years, until I began to work on this one incredibly important factor.
The #1 Factor In Health Anxiety Recovery Is No Untold Secret
Over the years we see athletes that had enormous abilities, but never make it to the highest levels. We've seen amazing business ideas that never truly manifest and become all they can be. And we see health anxiety sufferers live in a comfort zone they're far too comfortable in to try and let go of (unconsciously of course).

Welcome To The Bewildering Life Of A Health Anxiety Sufferer

There's something very common within the successes of people in different aspects of life, and it's the very thing we have the ability to alter. The immense power within us grants us the permission to consciously step in at any given moment to direct our minds in the direction we want to go, and for health anxiety sufferers that direction is freedom.

Freedom from the never-ending sensitivity to symptoms of anxiety, freedom from avoidance behaviours that keep them locked in a circle of so-so living conditions, and freedom from the grand-daddy of them all... The Fear Of Death.

In episode #71 of The Anxiety Guy Podcast I will reveal:

The biggest difference between health anxiety recovery and management
How we sabotage our chances for freedom unconsciously
What the biggest factor in health anxiety recovery is, and how it will set you on a path to freedom in all aspect of your life

TAGP 70: Anxiety Causing Depression? 3 Steps To Recovery  

"The Bravest Thing I Ever Did Was Continue To Live While Every Part Of Me Wanted To Die." - Dennis Simsek
Depression can be defined as ‘a mental disorder characterized by a pessimistic sense of inadequacy and a despondent lack of activity’. However, it is important to realize that while this definition is true in the most general sense, there are many different types of depression, and all of them differ in terms of specific symptoms and causes.
On a general level however, depression is a mental health challenge that can affect every aspect of your life. It can change the way you sleep, the way you deal with other people, and the way you view life in general. It is an all-pervasive condition that is very different from a passing mood - something that does not simply go away, nor is it a sign of personal weakness or lack of courage.

Depression can be a crippling condition, so let’s start by seeing if you may be depressed. Keep in mind that everyone has their “blue” days. The thing that separates clinical depression from simple melancholy is that the symptoms occur over a period of time. They don’t come and go, they stay around for a while and can affect your life adversely.

Can You Answer Yes To These 3 Questions? If So Depression Might Be Present:

Are you un-motivated to do simple things like shower, clean up the house, or make dinner?
Do people tell you you’re overly irritable?
Are you feeling isolated from family and friends even when they are around you?

Anxiety Causing Depression Is A Cry For Change, Now!
Suffering depression is your mind’s way of telling you that you need to institute changes through a proven CBT based system. and while a major change like moving to a different state or even a different country would be a huge step in the right direction, for many people this is simply not possible. That does not, however, mean that you cannot make changes to your environment which can help you to start getting over your depression problem.

The root cause of your depression
How the subconscious mind interprets your anxiety causing depression
How your life can change by implementing the 3 steps outlined in the podcast

TAGP 69: Is Anxiety Therapy For You?  

"My Dad Once Said Son, Never Change A Winning Game But Always Change A Losing Game."

A question I've been getting quite a bit lately is "can anxiety therapy help me in my current state?" A question that doesn't have a direct answer, and many factors need to be understood about the individual. But what I am going to do is take the opportunity to fill you with my personal opinions, give you the facts, and show you what works for me and my clients.

There is no one size fits all approach for anxiety sufferers. I've realized that everyone's challenge is quite unique from the thousands of people I've worked through my CBT based program dealing with health anxiety and GAD. This is where much of my frustration comes into play when we think anxiety therapy in today's world.
"I've been doing psychotherapy for 7 years Dennis," Laura said to me. I was floored, what a waste of money and time I thought to myself.
So this is my no holds barred version of exactly what you need to hear as far as what will work best for you. I will lay it all out for you, and tell you what I believe is the absolute best option for your specific case. Because I'll tell you one thing:

"What You Don't Want Is Your Therapist To Listen To Your Story, Grab A Text Book From The Shelf, Read You Some Breathing Techniques To Do, And Book Your Next Appointment."

Which was a familiar story during my 6 year anxiety struggle. "Was this therapy?" I thought to myself as I left each and every session more confused and anxious than when I went in. That's when I started to do my research to find out what worked for others.

I found myself a mentor who could relate to my story and held me accountable, I learned the methods behind CBT & NLP, and was relentless in my pursuit towards changing how I saw myself and the meanings behind my core beliefs, and the rest took care of itself in time.

In Episode #69 of The Anxiety Guy Podcast I'll be sharing:

A deeper understanding behind my anxiety recovery
Why Traditional anxiety therapy didn't work for me
How you can make the right choice that will actually spawn results quickly

TAGP 68: Turning Your PANIC Switch Off  

"Is It Possible To Re-program Your Brain To Understand What's A Real Threat And What's Not? Sure, Why Not."

Remember that first full blown panic attack you had? What a bewildering experience. All your sensations heightened, your mind running wild like a wild goose chase, and minutes felt like hours.

Quickly you begin thinking this is the one, this is the one that will end your life. How could it not? It feels so real!

"With Every New Full Blown Panic Attack A Sufferer Believes It To Be A Heart Attack, And Responds Accordingly In That Moment."

Life after a full blown panic attack feels like a saber toothed tiger looking to pounce on you at any moment. The sensitivity to light, words, events, anything can be enough to lock ourselves in our comfort zones for days, weeks, months, years!

I know I did. 31 days to be exact in my home only stepping foot outside to take a breath of air once in a while. But all this fear stops today.

In this episode of the anxiety guy podcast I want to show you the truth behind this part of your brain called the amygdala that is running the panic show right now.

"By understanding panic we can train the amygdala to understand what is a real threat and what is a perceived threat."

So if you're currently going through a panicky chapter in your life, and fear the next big panic attack, this podcast episode is for you.

In Episode #68 Of The Anxiety Guy Podcast We Look Into:

What the function of the amygdala is
Why we experience these attacks out of the blue

TAGP 67: My Anxiety Truth Unleashed (Powerful Interview)  

"What's Wrong Is Always Available, So Is What's Right."

Get ready for the truth. The truth about growing up in an environment that breeds anxiety, and how the cycle of GAD, health anxiety, and panic disorder manifested towards adulthood.

In this powerful interview with Judi Meredith I share the very things that kept my fears and worries alive, and how scary it was to alter my anxious state.

"I Remember Thinking Of How Foreign Recovery From Anxiety Was, And How I Sabotaged My Own Success Daily."

These are the types of interviews that I believe make the biggest difference in people suffering from anxiety. To show these warriors that anxiety recovery is not only possible, it's your right and it happens everyday.

The problem in today's world is we hear these labels like mental illness, chemical imbalance theories, and anxiety is in your genes so we believe the solution is beyond us.

"I Believes That's BS, And It's Time Positivity, Rational Thinking, And Success Stories Became Louder."

After the tough questions in this interview by Judi Meridith I find myself getting more and more caught up in today's mental health world, and more and more frustrated.

Remember, You Are More Than Anxiety!

Frustrated because the answer is always right underneath our noses. The knowledge, the mindset, the skill sets, and the power to apply what is learned with unwavering perseverance is what this powerful interview is about.

In The Anxiety Guy Podcast #67 We Go Deep Into:

How my subconscious mind accepted anxiety so early in my life
What kept my generalized anxiety and health anxiety alive
What I feared success over anxiety so much

TAGP 66: How Mentally Out Of Shape Are You?  

"Our Mentality Becomes Our Reality." - Billy Cox

Have you ever looked at your mental health in this way? How in or out of shape you actually are? When we think about getting in shape we attribute that to consistency in some form of exercise to achieve a desired look or result.

So Why Does Physical Shape Always Come Before Mental Shape In Our Society?

If we look at our system from head to toe, internal to external, and what creates the quality of our lives, so much of it comes down to how we choose to interpret the information taken in from our 5 senses.

After suffering from health anxiety, debilitating panic disorder, and generalized anxiety I came to a very deep realization which was that:

"I Learned That A Thought I Had, Or An Emotion I Felt Was My Systems Way Of Asking My Conscious Mind What To Do With This Information!"

I didn't need to run with a thought for the entire day, and believe it. I didn't need to allow my emotions to overtake my reactions and rational thinking processes. But no one ever taught us how to deal with this stuff, until now, so we just keep avoiding or looking for that magic wand for relief.

Staying in great mental shape means working out your mind daily. It means that from the moment you wake up, to the moment you go to bed, you allow certain information to enter your inner world, and others not to.

"Our Lives Are The Direct Result Of How Mentally In Shape We Are." 

In episode #66 of The Anxiety Guy Podcast let's look at:

What things you need to do to get in great mental shape
How a brand new perspective can change your world
How to step up no matter what situation life throws at you

TAGP 65: 5 Questions To Ask Yourself To Reach Self Mastery  

"Self Mastery Is The Powerful Combination Of Control And Flexibility."

When we talk about self mastery we're talking about people that live mindfully. Mindful living means not falling for the traps of your default mode network (DMN), the part of your brain that thinks and behaves unconsciously.

Unconscious living means putting your life in the hands of others. A persons belief becomes your belief, the gloomy weather means an ugly day, and if something feels wrong than it must be wrong.

"Self Mastery Means Standing Guard At the Doorway Of Your Mind, And Allowing Only The Rational And Big Picture To Enter In."

The difference between average and successful people is their level of psychological development. Successful doesn't have to mean in any given aspect either. Some people can view success as simply living out their passion, or sitting on a bench, hearing the birds chirping, and simply being in that present moment.

As you probably already know and understand well, the mind doesn't naturally become broadened/flexible in it's thinking.

It Takes Commitment, Repetition, Emotion, And A Willingness To Change

But Dennis, why wouldn't someone want to change their lives for the better? Improving their physical, spiritual, emotional and mental health is a given isn't it? Well, not really.

If you're ever heard the saying "most people would rather die than to think," you know where i'm coming from. The very idea of change takes the conscious mind completely out of the game, and it checks out. It wants nothing to do with it since familiarity is what it loves.

In This Episode Of The Anxiety Guy Podcast We'll Be Discussing:

When you'll know you've reached self mastery
Reasons why some people will never change their realities
Where we go wrong along the journey

TAGP 64: Depersonalization And Anxiety – A Symptom Or Something Else?  

"Depersonalization; Quite Possibly The Most Bewildering And Terrifying Thing I've Ever Experienced." - Dennis Simsek

Depersonalization is something that's becoming more and more common in today's world of chronic anxiety, and yet no one can give us any firm answers on it yet. Certainly my own therapist had no idea what I was talking about, and my doctor just looked at me like I was from the planet Zoltron, so what was a sufferer to do? 

The truth is depersonalization is most certainly one of those things that doesn't get much focus as far as treatment options. When all medical tests are done and physical ailments are ruled out, confusion can certainly set in, until today.

I believe the best solutions come from those people that have been through depersonalization and derealization, and have come out the other side. Even though all those inner voices tell you that you're doomed, there's a part of you that reminds you of how sensitized you truly are to everyday fears, and that the solution could simply be in taking care of those very things.
"When I Work With Someone Personally Through Depersonalization, It's Not Only Based Around CBT, But We Get The Meat-Suit Engaged (The Body), We Tackle The Emotional Fatigue, And Re-Wire The Subconscious."
So get ready to listen to this powerful episode of The Anxiety Guy Podcast a few times to really grasp where depersonalization comes from, what keeps it going, and what options you have to treat it naturally.

In this episode we look deep into:

The main triggers of depersonalization
Whether it's a symptom of anxiety or not
The #1 way to start turning this bewildering feeling around starting today

TAGP 63: Breaking Anxious Patterns: The Power Of An Elastic Band  

"Break The Pattern To Create A New One."

95% of our actions are unconsciously determined. Think about that. These are habits, patterns, and most of them destructive. But we don't recognize these patterns because we were never taught to live conscously, but to accept our realities as they were.

"We Can't Blame Our Parents Though, I Mean They Can't Teach Us What They Don't Know."

Some of the statements my clients have grown up with are things like "you've got to roll with the punches" or "no pain no gain." No pain no gain? What the hell does that even mean? By running the same limiting patterns in our thoughts, words, and actions we create the vibration of living comfortably fearful, and my friends you're much better than living comfortably fearful.

An elastic band was my best friend during my recovery from anxiety, and it will be yours as well. An elastic band when used properly holds the power to not only break you of your anxious patterns, but to create mindfulness. A broader look into the world, seeing the big picture, and going external in our focus rather than internal.

To Break The Anxious Patterns Means To Catch Yourself When Your Crtical Voice Is Present

When the process of doubt begins, you're told you'll never amount to anything, or that anxety will just be a part of your life so you must learn to live with it... Forever. Every client I have goes through the elastic band process, and now my friends, so will you.

The 4 steps you will learn in this powerful epsode of The Anxiety Guy Podcast will transform your anxous patterns of thought, and change the way you see yourself.

In Episode #63 we'll be learning about:

What breaking a pattern truly means
How to fully accept and let the anxiety storm pass
Why the elastic band is an absolute must to wear for you
