There is too much bad advice out there for people with anxiety disorders.
Advice that says we can control our anxiety and need to think happy, be happy, and get on our feet. The kind of advice someone preaches before they give you a chummy slap on the back and walk away.
But this podcast has none of that advice. (Thank God.)
The Calm Living Blueprint podcast feels like you’re talking with a friend who has gone through exactly what you’re going through.
The creator, Candice Esposito, humbly describes her own struggles with anxiety and walks you through succinct actions you can take to untangle from your thoughts and anxieties. As she put it in episode two, “it’s not about reducing or eliminating your so-called symptoms. It’s about transforming your relationship with your thoughts and feelings so you no longer think of them as symptoms.”
The most life-changing episodes for me:
- Are You Playing by the Wrong Rules?
- Handling Feelings of Anxiety
- Be Here and Now to Relieve Anxiety
- Seeds of Calm in Anxiety
- How to Stop Ruminating and Gain Meaning from Painful Memories
I hope this podcast can break you out of cyclical thinking, remove disappointment, and help you find peace with your anxiety like it did for me.
By the way, this podcast review was inspired by the private responses I received from this blog post. Thank you for sharing your stories of rumination and anxiety with me.
