Show Notes

Have you ever felt anxious?

Or perhaps a better question to ask is how often do you feel anxious?

Research shows that anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S., affecting 40 million adults in the United States age 18 and older which is equivalent to 30% of adults being affected at some point in their lives. 

What that really means is that if you’ve struggled with anxiety, you’re not alone.

And it’s totally understandable with current events, living through the pandemic and experiences you may have had in childhood or your formative years.

Anxiety is an emotion most of us are very familiar with that can make us feel uneasy and uncomfortable in our skin.

So if you’ve felt that way or are feeling that way too….first, you’re not alone, and second, you need to listen to this episode because I’ve brought a special guest into this conversation today to help strip away the myths and misconceptions about what anxiety is and  exactly what you can do to help live with it. 

In this episode, we’re going Skinny Dipping with Dr. Chloe Carmichael who is a clinical psychologist and USA Today bestselling author and holds a Masters and Doctorate of Philosophy in Clinical Psychology.

Her book, Nervous Energy: Harness the Power of Your Anxiety was endorsed by Deepak Chopra and called a “game changer” by Jim McCann (founder of 1800-FLOWERS). She’s a sought after expert for media outlets like  ABC Nightline, CBS Inside Edition, PsychologyToday and MindBodyGreen.

So grab your favorite beverage, get comfortable and let’s dive in.
