Anxiety Show Notes:

Calmly Coping is an actionable self-improvement podcast for anxious overthinkers. I’m your host, Tatiana Garcia, and I’m a licensed counselor in private practice specializing in anxiety treatment.

Do you appear calm and collected on the outside, but on the inside you are struggling, doubting, and overthinking?

Calmly Coping is not about fixing you, it’s about uncovering the amazing person that is already there (and that you are just too afraid to let out).

Anxiety can make it difficult for you to focus, relax, and cope with day-to-day stress.  Maybe you feel burnt out from your responsibilities and have not put enough attention towards caring for yourself and your needs.  It’s common to have feelings of overwhelm, irritability, fears and worries, and physical symptoms.

Relief is possible.  The first step to finding relief is becoming more aware of what exactly anxiety is, and why you are experiencing it.  That’s what I’m going to discuss in this episode.

Today you are going to learn the basics of anxiety- why it happens, what the symptoms are, and the different levels: Here are the key takeaways you will have:

  • The situations where having some anxiety can actually be helpful
  • The evolutionary roots of anxiety
  • AND the signs of high-functioning anxiety
  • Along with an action plan with concrete steps to help you learn more about your anxiety

Action journal prompts:

  2. Do you avoid anything because of your anxiety?
