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.

What you’ll learn  in this episode:

  • Why these mental health myths exist
  • What you must do to start changing your beliefs
  • How to help others get on the path to recovery from anxiety

    • Yes! For years after my anxiety disorder I regretted not crying more. It does release tension and anxiety and every chance you get you should let some tears out Mohammed without feeling guilty. The thing is that you must stop thinking and talking like a victim, anxiety isn’t your identity, but by repeating it to yourself and others constantly you;re only fueling more fear and pain. Fear is in all of us so a ‘ride the wave’ attitude would work. Running from fear is something anxious people do and must flip around. When fear strikes now I move towards it, even though every ounce of me says not to. This builds confidence, builds positivity and releases tension. Your success should be determined by the small wins you make on a daily basis, so as long as you keep challenging yourself into uncomfortable situations, and succeeding, the more small wins you’re building. I bet you’ve had a ton of small wins in the past month, remember those and not the setbacks.
