Worry and Anxiety: How to Stop the Mind Chatter
October 20 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Worry, usually about things beyond our control, is a common human experience. Our brains tend to get stuck on the “what ifs” and imagine the worst. Normal worry or anxiety can be motivating and spur us to action or problem solving. However, excessive worry or anxiety can become the problem. The continual uncertainty and change associated with Covid-19 magnifies this problem.
Often times, our worries or anxiety effect how we perceive or think about a situation. What we tell ourselves creates more fear, and then our reactions intensify. In the case of anxiety, there can also be a biological component that makes it hard to control.
In this seminar, we will explore this continuum of worry and anxiety. We will also explore strategies for managing and coping with worry and identify when it may be helpful to seek assistance.
- Explore the continuum of worry and anxiety
- Discuss the physical and emotional impact
- Learn strategies to cope
