Can I just say, I am so excited to share this weeks episode of Your Anxiety Toolkit?   

In this weeks episode, I got to spend some time with my good friend, Jon Hershfield and he drops some REAL wisdom about some of the myths about managing Anxiety, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and life in general.  He is a genius at breaking things down and making it fun along the way.

To prepare for this episode, I reached out to some trusted and respected Mental Health Professionals for input.    I asked if they could share some of the unskilled advice that some of their clients have received from their previous therapists or medical professionals.

Thoughts.   They are often very wrong!   If we observe our thoughts, we will begin to notice how incorrect they are.

Feelings.   They too can lead us down a path of reaction and regret.  

Sensations.   These can be hard to manage, mostly because they are very uncomfortable and can make us feel out of control.
