Although avoiding anxiety-provoking situations might seem like a good idea, the truth is that this only WORSENS our anxiety in the long run. When dealing with anxiety, sometimes the only way is through it rather than around it. The good news is that it’s still possible to live an incredibly rich, expansive, and meaningful life despite the ongoing presence of anxiety, by exercising two core principles that I learned from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). In this video, I talk about how to overcome your anxiety by committing to your values.
P.S. For anyone curious about learning more about Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, I highly recommend this book that we used in my support group: https://amzn.to/39PVleS [Illustrated Version] or https://amzn.to/3utRXOx [Complex Version].
