I used to suffer from very intense anxiety for the better part of a decade. That quest led me down many rabbit holes of personal development and philosophy that I otherwise would have missed.
Now I help people work with difficult emotions using what I’ve learned, with an emphasis on Stoicism.
Anxiety is crippling and somewhat inescapable in the modern world.
The mainstream media purposefully make us worry, advertisements increase our performance anxiety and health anxiety, and social media does not make it easier to socialize in the real world.
In today’s audio lesson, I begin by sharing the 4 scientific models we use for understanding the cause of anxiety. When you learn these, for the first time you’ll have some idea of what’s going on and how to fix it.
After that, I explain the 3 core Stoic interventions for overcoming our anxiety.
