457: Anxiety And Living In Your Head Too Much

In today's episode, Gina discusses TMS and the work of Dr. Sarno and former ACP guest Steve Ozanich.  Many who struggle with TMS and anxiety suffer from excessively "living in the head".  Instead of doing, many will just think about it and get stuck in what-if scenarios, never acting or getting a full experience of life.  Gina recommends movement and embracing the body to get out of what can be torturous thought-cycles.

444: Put Your Anxious Worries On The Back Burner

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.
