427: Anxiety Triggers The Gap and Your Responses

In this episode, Gina discusses a critical point within our experience of anxiety:  the gap between the anxiety stimulus (environmental factor that triggers our anxiety) and our response.  Gina argues that within this space lies the great power to choose how to interpret a stimulus and how to choose what our optimal response to this stimulus will be.  Within this response lies an opportunity to grow, to change and to step into the best version of ourself.

412: 4 Ways of Being Present and Relieving Stress and Anxiety

In this episode, Gina discusses the importance of being present for the process of relieving stress and anxiety.  Gina points out undesirable factors that inhibit our stress and anxiety relief, including:  attachment, excessive forward thinking (future focused), imaginary thoughts and negative expectations.

Gina suggests four action steps to be in the present and cultivate mindfulness:
1) Observe events without judging them (anxiety stems from judgment)

2) Integrate mindfulness activities into your daily life (walking dog, mowing the lawn, gardening, at work... fully immerse yourself to what you are doing)

3) Let go of expectations (expectations are often not positive)

4) Mindfulness meditation (meditation fosters new default of being present)
