Editor’s Note: We’re very fortunate to have access to Esther Kane’s professional expertise. Today, we’re running an article she wrote entitled ‘Conquering the Worry Monster.’ Even if you’re the most carefree person in the world, chances are, if you’ve been on this earth for 40 years, you’ve been anxious about something. Drawing on her professional knowledge and her own battles with anxiety, today Esther shares five tools for overcoming anxiety.
I recently had the incredible experience of being on national television- I appeared on CTV’s Canada AM for a full three plus minutes talking about Orthorexia- a type of eating disorder which is defined as the “obsession with healthy eating”. Here’s the link: www.itsnotaboutthefood.net
The reason I want to share this experience with you is because I know a lot of you struggle with anxiety in it’s many different guises-social anxiety, generalized anxiety, and phobias of various descriptions. Every day in my practise, I work with at least one person who is recovering from some anxiety issue and I am so grateful to be able to give her the tools she needs in order to lessen the often, debilitating symptoms of this particular affliction.
