I talk about what it means to have anxiety, and how it can manifest itself in your day-to-day life. Changes in your life can be anxiety-provoking, but there is a difference between fear and anxiety. I talk about how you can know if you are experiencing fear or anxiety, and what to do about it.
Along with your diet, lifestyle, and sleep routine, we dive into several different habits that you can adopt to manage anxiety. HINT: are you drinking enough water? Dehydration can contribute to anxiety too.
