Do you lie awake at night thoughts racing through your head? Are you constantly wondering what other people think or worrying about how you look, whether you’ll fit in, will people like you?
Are you constantly planning for all of the things that might happen? So much so that you either can’t leave the house or have to take a huge bag for a 30-minute outing?
Regardless of the source of our anxiety, it can be debilitating and exhausting. It can lead to panic attacks, depression, unease, and more.
I believe that two of the leading causes of anxiety are worrying about things that are out of our control and believing that we can make other people change. And one antidote is to return your focus back to what is actually under your control – yourself.
