Dominate Your Anxiety

Posted By on Sep 8, 2014

It wraps its arms around you like a boa constrictor, squeezing you until you can’t breathe. Your chest feels there’s a one ton anvil sitting on top of it. Your mind races with a million things that you can’t control. And one terrible truth echoes in your brain over and over again. You are helpless. There is nothing you can do to stop the stress. Anxiety is a killer. From the research I’ve done over the years, I...

Anxiety Domination 101: Say No, More

Posted By on Aug 24, 2014

Sometimes you just seem to be on a roll. Everything is going great. You can’t lose no matter how hard you try. I love it when that happens. Although, it doesn’t seem to happen very often. That’s life, I guess. Life is full of times when things don’t seem to be going our way. One complication leads to another, and before you know it, you’re completely out of sorts, seemingly losing your mind. It...
