In episode #23 of The Anxiety Guy Podcast we take a look at the 5 mental health myths you believe, that are causing you more pain. Not the physical kind, but mental and emotional anguish. By re-conditioning a new set of thoughts and beliefs towards these mental health myths, you begin setting yourself free from worry.
Like anything else that may be important in our lives that we spend time doing, change takes time.
Understanding these mental health myths comes first. Understand and check to see what you believe when it comes to each myth. You might find that you feel quite strongly towards one or more of them.
You may also feel like you justify some of these myths when you talk to other people. Understand that these myths are not true, and they don’t make up your identity.
Anxiety is not your real identity, so time to understand these crazy mental health myths that so many of us believe
So you must stop talking to yourself like it is. Stop talking to others like it is as well. Change begins and ends with you and that’s the truth. If you want to live a worry and anxiety free life, you must first begin noticing the habits that are causing you to feel more fear and worry.
Once that is in place and you understand where the root of your mental health issues lie, you can begin chipping away daily to change the path that you are currently on. To give you an example; I suffered for over 6 years with Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder and Health Anxiety. It took me a good 3 months of natural, intense discipline before I started to see change happen in my life.
If I can do it so can you, and that is what The Anxiety Guy Podcast is all about. Turning you into the person you were meant to be on this planet, and begin helming others on the way.
