Weeding the garden: a method for anxiety

Anxiety pops up into our lives like little weeds. It starts off small. Just a little nagging feeling. You might not even sense it. However, if you do not take care of it right away, it will grow. And it will get more and more out of control. Eventually, it will take over entirely. Weeding the garden simply means being intentional about noticing those small, nagging feelings and taking action against them. Quickly.

Pause & Applause

We will continue this game. Positivity and encouragement are contagious. Furthermore, the Baader-Meinhof phenomenon tells us that as we start looking for these pause & applause moments we will actually notice them more. The more good you focus on, the more good you'll have to focus on. We are also reinforcing and rewarding awesome behavior. It's a cycle of awesome.
