Anxiety sucks but it’s extremely common, affecting many of us at one stage of our lives and some people almost constantly.
I’ve struggled with anxiety all my life but still managed to travel all over the world, live in eight different countries and fulfil my dream of adventure including white water rafting, mountain climbing and all kinds of other crazy things.
Now I’m writing a book about how I’ve managed to overcome my anxiety, what works and what doesn’t. How to overcome anxiety contains these latest thoughts on anxiety with tips about how you can overcome it.
The old song “Don’t worry be happy” sounds great but sadly it’s not that easy for true sufferers of anxiety and depression.
