463: Anxiety and Depression

In today's episode, Gina talks about anxiety and its close relative depression.  Often people suffer with both anxiety and depression simultaneously.  Though depression can be a very difficult companion condition to suffer with anxiety, these conditions can often be brought about for a higher purpose in our lives that we may only be able to see after deep self-reflection after time has passed.

In today's episode, Gina talks about a useful method to use the inherent wisdom and intelligence of the human being to reduce the intensity of anxiety surrounding particular ideas or issues we may be facing in our lives.  Essentially, this method calls for "containing" the idea or issue that is causing the anxious distress in a mental container (Gina refers to it as a "pot") and putting the container away until a later time.  Doing so can make the anxiety weaker, and make ourselves stronger, over this period of time.
