  • TAGP 90: The #1 Root Cause Of Your Anxiety

    · 00:15:32 · The Anxiety Guy Podcast

    "Every Brain is Wired Differently, And That Wiring Can Change Over Time." One bright summer day about 8 years ago at the peak of my anxiety disorder I sat at the end of a park bench and asked the universe two questions; 'Why me?' And 'where did all this negative internal chatter come from!' The universe didn't reply that day, but my subconscious mind began the steps to reveal the answers in time. I began brainstorming how I had wired my brain in such a way that anxiety always lurked around the corner. A pencil that was blue (same colour I focused on during my first panic attack) was enough to send me into a spiral of fight or flight responses, and it sucked. "I Just Want To Be My Old Self Again!" I yelled at the top my lungs later on that week, but my brain wasn't easily convinced. The system that was my 3 brains starting with my Reptilian Brain (survival), my Mammalian Brain (emotions), and my Neo Cortex (rational/analytical brain) weren't working together as they all saw things differently. My reptile brain recognized a threat that sent signals to my emotional brain to release the stress hormones that were my fight or flight response, and as much as I tried to consciously fight back it was no use. The oldest part of my brain would be too strong and the symptoms of anxiety came fast and powerfully each time. I Realized This Internal Conflict Was A Major Factor In My Anxiety I had to find ways to stop fighting, start accepting, and begin understanding the cycle better. So I began looking deep into my patterns prior to anxiety, during, and after, and I came to an understanding of what didn't work, and what I needed to do to stop the anxiety cycle once and for all. In episode #90 of The Anxiety Guy Podcast we'll understand: How internal conflict leads to prolonged anxiety What patterns cause further internal conflict What you can begin doing today to create better rapport between your conscious and unconscious mind The post TAGP 90: The #1 Root Cause Of Your Anxiety appeared first on The Anxiety Guy - Your Resource To Ending Anxiety Naturally.

  • TAGP 89: 5 Keys To Overcoming Relaxation Induced Anxiety

    · 00:19:30 · The Anxiety Guy Podcast

    "Too Many Of Us Are Not Living Our Dreams Because We Are Too Busy Living Our Fears." Studied have shown that about 15% of people are prone to relaxation induced anxiety. What is relaxation induced anxiety? It's simply the fear of partaking in any behaviour that is relaxing and calming for the majority of people in the world today. The idea itself can throw a person into an anxious loop that can lead to other emotions such as anger and disgust in themselves. "Whenever Someone Told Me To Relax, Steam Started Coming Out Of My Ears! A Combination Of Their Ignorance For My Anxiety Disorder And My Inability To Find Any Peace Was Overwhelming." The first thing I had to do was quit the blame game. If no one ever went through health anxiety, generalized anxiety, or panic disorder how could I expect them to truly get the message? So that was a good starting point for me. Than it was a recognition of my initial internal responses to partaking in relaxing exercises, I had to re-organize these right away and gain control back. I needed to understand that relaxation induced anxiety was my fault and no one else's. My unconscious patterns, my limiting beliefs, and my avoidance behaviours. I heard a term going around in the Neuroscience world at the time called Neuroplasticity, which refers to the ability of the mind to alter it's own pathways and change it's connections. "Could I Un-due What I Had Created?" I Wondered... The truth is yes, we can overcome relaxation induced anxiety. Which is a big relief to hear because we all deserve to find peace in our lives. We're not machines created only to finish our to-do lists, we're much more than that and have much to contribute to this world through our unique abilities. In Episode #89 Of The Anxiety Guy Podcast We Look Into: What Life Is Like With Relaxation Induced Anxiety What Your Anxiety Support Team Needs To Understand The Most Important Knowledge You Need To Hear Today To Overcome Relaxation Induced Anxiety Comment Below On Your Experiences With Relaxation Induced Anxiety!

  • TAGP 88: 3 Powerful Ways You Can Use Social Media To Improve Your Mental Health

    · 00:15:15 · The Anxiety Guy Podcast

    "When The Thought Of Logging Off Social Media Leaves You With A Cold Sweat You Need A Wake Up Call, And Here It Is." Social media such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, etc., are certainly the channels that engage most internet users. Social media has however also become a factor in causing anxiety and adding to the turmoil people experience with their mental health. Mental health experts all over the world are of the opinion that social media plays a significant role in the rising instances of anxiety among adolescents, teens, and adults. "But Today Is The Day We Turn Everything Around And Gain Back Our Sense Of Self Control!" Some people are so addicted to social media and consequently overwhelmed with anxiety that they are unable to attend work or carry out routine tasks in their everyday life. Also let's not forget the thousands of teens who could eventually grow up and be unable to cope and overcome the challenges and complexities of their daily lives. A study found that from 1985 to 2016 the total number of freshmen from UCLA who reported feelings of being “inundated” soared from 18% to 41%. On a nationwide scale in the US, the rate of ‘crushing teen anxiety’ among university students soared to 62% in 2016 from 50% in 2011. Social media has been found to be just one of the several triggers of anxiety for people in todays world; other factors include over-commitment and perfectionism in privileged children and the almost-real, constant threat of instability and violence in working-class and poor teenagers. Smartphones can also be very damaging Anxiety experts have offered warnings against the false impression or ‘illusion’ of power/control that smartphones can offer people who seek to insulate and isolate themselves. This false sense of control can be helpful as a coping mechanism in the short term. However, it will prevent anxiety sufferers from gaining the skill sets and resilience necessary to flourish in life. In This Powerful Anxiety Guy Podcast Focused On Social Media We Dive Into: How one simple tweak can change the way you see and use social media How certain social media messages that are outside of your awareness are affecting your anxiety and mental health What you can expect by implementing the 3 powerful steps in this podcast episode The post TAGP 88: 3 Powerful Ways You Can Use Social Media To Improve Your Mental Health appeared first on The Anxiety Guy - Your Resource To Ending Anxiety Naturally.

  • TAGP 87: The Two Different Types Of Health Anxiety Sufferers

    · 00:16:51 · The Anxiety Guy Podcast

    "Health Anxiety Sufferers Are Some Of The Bravest People In The World, Period." Welcome to the bewildering world of health anxiety. A world where getting through the day is a huge accomplishment, where every new symptom of anxiety (if we could only see it as that) is a death sentence, and where people just simply won't understand, so we prefer to go mute. "Health Anxiety Is One Of The Fastest Rising Mental Health Problems That's Getting The Least Amount Of Proper Attention." As much as you believe your case of health anxiety is different, it's not. There are millions of health anxiety sufferers (many of which I work with online) going through sensitivity at varying degrees who are bewildered, frustrated, and incredibly associated internally, sometimes for 24 hours a day. It's incredibly important for health anxiety sufferers to begin becoming the second group of people I talk about in this podcast, as well as acquire the 3 A's starting today; Acquisition - Acquiring the proper information for recovery, Assimilation - Studying and understanding the information fully, Application - Taking every anxious moment to practice what is learned and understood. The 3 A's are your simplified but still powerful road-map to desensitization. Health anxiety sufferers usually get stuck between understanding the information better and being able to implement it. The memories are just so pervasive sometimes that the conscious mind is the first one to check out when a sabre toothed tiger such as a sensation of anxiety, or the word cancer comes into the forefront. "I've Been There, It Sucks, And It's Temporary For You." Because you're in a good place now. The Anxiety Guy Podcast is here weekly (don't forget to subscriber on iTunes)to show you that you've got options as far as your thinking and what to believe, your emotions and how you react, and your actions and how you behave in the face of uncertainty. In Episode #87 Of The Anxiety Guy Podcast We Understand: Why so many health anxiety sufferers get stuck in the first group for so long What to expect when you begin to embark in a whole new approach to health anxiety recovery Why so many health anxiety sufferers live with such internal pain on a daily basis The post TAGP 87: The Two Different Types Of Health Anxiety Sufferers appeared first on The Anxiety Guy - Your Resource To Ending Anxiety Naturally.

  • TAGP 86: Top 10 Essential Elements To Excellent Mental Health

    · 00:26:25 · The Anxiety Guy Podcast

    "Excellent Mental Health Helps Us To More Fully Enjoy And Appreciate The People And Environments Around Us." In a world of information overload, societal pressures, and media bombardment gaining excellent mental health and clarity can be challenging. That's why I've comprised this top 10 list for excellent mental health to get you right back to focusing on the right things. You're born with only two fears; The fear of loud noises and the fear of falling, everything else you learned on planet earth. Growing up you may have inherited many of the same values and beliefs from your parents, and other authority figures. With repetition you cemented those beliefs, and created blind spots to anything that went against those. That's why it's crucial that we question our thoughts, core beliefs, and behaviours to see if they truly promote fulfillment There is no doubt about the fact that we live in troubling and uncertain times and this can prevent us from achieving clarity and excellent mental health. There is constant talk of war, perennial threat of terrorist attacks, sleazy politics and corrupt politicians, an economy that works only for the rich and powerful, widespread discontent,  ravages wrecked by floods, earthquakes, and other natural calamities caused by climate change. It is very difficult to stay sane in the middle of such developments that provoke and incite anxiety! The process of calming anxiety and gaining excellent mental health however takes an effort. We have to engage in physical and mental activities to ensure that anxiety and clear and present mental health is kept at manageable levels for our continued functioning, and for proper rational response in the future when we are suddenly faced with crisis. In This Important Episode Of The Anxiety Guy Podcast We'll Discuss: What sort of unconscious patterns promote a lack of good mental health How to quickly turn your current anxious and fear based reality around The fastest way to gain excellent mental health for you, friends, and loved ones The post TAGP 86: Top 10 Essential Elements To Excellent Mental Health appeared first on The Anxiety Guy - Your Resource To Ending Anxiety Naturally.

What a realization! On this powerful episode of the anxiety guy podcast (With Special Guest Holistic Nutritionist Robyn Olsen) we dive into what this food is, and where you may be consistently getting it from. In this powerful episode I share my confusions and realizations after a visit to a local naturopath. The naturopath shocked me to say the least, and little did I realize at the time what impact her suggestions would make on my anxiety levels. I was told that most of what I was eating, although healthy, was messing with my entire system. The Last Place I Would Have Looked In My Journey Towards Anxiety Recovery Was My Gut Health! But boy was I glad I did. I quickly rid myself of the foods that my system was sensitive to, and replaced it with ones that helped me. The #1 food that contributes to your anxiety is in so many things that it's going to take a deep commitment and consciousness to replace. Some of the foods in this category you may be highly attracted to, but again, it's not worth the result you're currently feeling. So let's take this powerful anxiety guy podcast episode to shine some light on the #1 food that contributes to your anxiety, and move you one step closer to anxiety recovery.

  • TAGP 84: How Noise Pollution Is Affecting Your Anxiety Levels

    · 00:07:43 · The Anxiety Guy Podcast

    "Of All The Varieties Of Modern Pollution, Noise Pollution Is The Most Insidious." Could increased and steady noise be affecting your anxiety levels? Absolutely and here's why; you don't have to be consciously aware of something for it to be affecting you in some way. Getting to the bottom of noise pollution in your life is a very important matter because it could simply change everything. Turning a noisy environment into a calm one can give you the peace you need that will lead you to emotional insight; the ability to see another way to think and act about something. Noise pollution is a big problem in today's world and we're rarely aware of it, until now. It's Important To Take A Good Listen To Your Immediate Environments And Ask Yourself 'Could This Be Affecting Me?' With realization comes a new mindset, with a new mindset you can take action to change some aspect of your life that may be causing you increased anxiety. Noise pollution is a massive problem today as more and more people are becoming more and more stressed out. But we can change that, we can be the conscious ones while the world lives through their unconscious pre-programmed fear based states. Many times one big realization can change everything. This realization can lead to calmness in your life, and this calmness can lessen the amount of fight or flight you feel. When the parasympathetic nervous system is on, you begin the process of resting and digesting, this is a good thing if we want to move from internal chaos to a constant state of self control. In episode #84 of The Anxiety Guy Podcast we look into: 3 ways you can begin eliminating noise pollution from your life How noise pollution is affecting your fight or flight system Why it's so important to recognize how your environment plays a part The post TAGP 84: How Noise Pollution Is Affecting Your Anxiety Levels appeared first on The Anxiety Guy - Your Resource To Ending Anxiety Naturally.

  • TAGP 83: The 3 Types Of Thinkers In The World

    · 00:14:03 · The Anxiety Guy Podcast

    "Old Ways Wont Open Up New Doors." Have you ever thought about why you connect so well with the people you do? The truth is that thinking styles tend to stick together and you'll find that to be the case with most of your relationships. But could your thinking style also be affecting your emotional and mental health? Absolutely, so it's time to dive deep into this topic today as you learn something new about you. All thinking styles have their pros and cons, but some hold the person accountable while others are wired to make excuses. Excuses for why they're not where they want to be, for why they feel the way they do, and these people need a serious wake up call in the form of this episode. Nothing Changes If Nothing Changes. There's also the opposite of these styles of thinking in the form of being guided and open minded. These people have immense flexibility in thought and behaviour, are in touch with their spiritual side, and see things clearer than most. This is a thinking style that we all have the opportunity to adopt, and in turn alter the path of our lives Neuroplasticity is the ability of the brain to change its processes, and it's within each of us. If you're currently living a life of anxiety, dread, panic, catastrophic thinking, and just can't get a firm grasp over your life this episode will open your eyes to a new you. With this knowledge you can move into the world more open minded and with deeper a understanding. In Episode #83 Of The Anxiety Guy Podcast We Look Into: How you adopted the thinking style you currently have Why it's so vital to change your current conditioning How a new thinking style will create a different reality for you The post TAGP 83: The 3 Types Of Thinkers In The World appeared first on The Anxiety Guy - Your Resource To Ending Anxiety Naturally.

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

    · 00:15:47 · The Anxiety Guy Podcast

    "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 The post TAGP 82: How The System Created And Fuels Your Generalized Anxiety appeared first on The Anxiety Guy - Your Resource To Ending Anxiety Naturally.

  • TAGP 81: The Unconscious Fears Of Overcoming Health Anxiety

    · 00:16:16 · The Anxiety Guy Podcast

    "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 The post TAGP 81: The Unconscious Fears Of Overcoming Health Anxiety appeared first on The Anxiety Guy - Your Resource To Ending Anxiety Naturally.

    · 00:23:03 · The Anxiety Guy Podcast

    "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.

  • TAGP 79: The 5 Stages Of The Anxiety Trance

    · 00:10:15 · The Anxiety Guy Podcast

    "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.

    "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 Enjoying The Podcast?

  • TAGP 76: Top 10 Ways To Overcome Sleep Anxiety

    · 00:12:56 · The Anxiety Guy Podcast

    "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 The post TAGP 76: Top 10 Ways To Overcome Sleep Anxiety appeared first on The Anxiety Guy - Your Resource To Ending Anxiety Naturally.

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

    · 00:20:13 · The Anxiety Guy Podcast

    "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.

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

    · 00:15:03 · The Anxiety Guy Podcast

    "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 Learn More About The #1 CBT Based Health Anxiety Recovery Program Today.

  • TAGP 73: Channeling The Power Of Your Subconscious Mind

    · 00:14:01 · The Anxiety Guy Podcast

    "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

    · 00:13:23 · The Anxiety Guy Podcast

    "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 Begin Your Health Anxiety Recovery, Learn More About The End The Anxiety Program Today.  The post TAGP 72: My Health Anxiety Journey Through Medications, Support, And Setbacks appeared first on The Anxiety Guy - Your Resource To Ending Anxiety Naturally.

  • TAGP 71: The #1 Factor In Health Anxiety Recovery

    · 00:18:56 · The Anxiety Guy Podcast

    "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 The Anxiety Guy Community Links : Join the #1 Health Anxiety & GAD support page on Facebook.
