Don’t Panic! Understand Stress and Anxiety

In our fast-paced, modern world, we have sadly come to expect daily anxiety and stress as normal, something we all have to “just deal with.” For those with chronic anxiety, the feeling of being on edge, worried or overwhelmed can begin to seem so constant that it’s impossible to change. Worry no longer!

This presentation will be helpful both for those who are anxious and stressed, and also those who have a loved one with anxiety issues. It will focus on explaining what anxiety is, how it works in our brain and our body, how we can support those who experience anxiety, and how we can free ourselves from the downward spiral. With the right combination of information and practical advice, you will leave this talk with a greater understanding of what anxiety is, how it impacts our lives, and how to master it…and how to fill your life with joy, peace, and calm.
