Anxiety is f*cking exhausting.
Are you struggling with anxiety? It can feel like a constant tug of war, but the truth is, fighting anxiety doesn’t work. It ends up getting us so caught up that we lose focus completely. Once we start to recognise our anxiety we can begin to change our relationship to it. Rather than running away or getting caught up in it, we can get to a point where we are responding effectively – not reacting impulsively.
In this 4 week program, you’ll gain an understanding of what may be contributing to your own anxiety, through heightened awareness of your behaviours and thoughts. Led by Amy Newsome, you’ll discover a toolkit of strategies to help you manage your anxiety by identifying your triggers, dealing with your self-critic and training that negative little voice in your head to become more self-compassionate.
