15 Little Things Every Person With Anxiety Needs

Having anxiety is like having butterflies in your stomach for any and every given reason, only they’re not friendly, flirty butterflies, they’re more like angry bees. I was recording videos (for the first time ever) last week for From Struggle to Shine (a program where I teach entrepreneurs to strategize stories to build deeper connections with and more support from their audiences) and I felt like said bees were going to be the death of me. There’s physical discomfort – stomach churning, heart racing – topped with mental chaos, not one thought after the other, but all together to create a nonstop buzz.. What do I say?

In the spirit of creative freedom, here are the key items that are trending this fall. Show us how you style them on your Instagram and don’t

Just like the Rio Olympics, Go for Gold

Believe it or not, our olympian friends in Rio are just like us with huge obstacles to overcome and self-motivation that could move mountains. They work long hours like you do. They cry, want to give up, and feel burnt out sometimes. They even deal with tough competitors that have no mercy or empathy to whether you succeed or fail. It is truly an inspiration to watch the athletes compete and earn the medals they bring home to their countries, families, friends and most importantly themselves. But my gosh, the stories behind the dreamers and do-ers are what really make you want to go for gold in your everyday life. Even though none of us (just making an assumption here, but if we have any past, present, or attempting olympians among our readership, please do step forward – we’d love to interview ya!) are in the market for gold, silver or
