Well this is 2012 and we're still here. Are you grateful for that? Or are you anxious about all the predictions of 2012 or not knowing what to expect? Nothing has changed from the media happily reporting all the gloom and doom in the economic and social landscapes of the world. Yet if anyone of you have found something changed within you that have made you see things differently, perhaps an expectation, or a hope that things might be changing for the better, then anxiety has not taken root. Congrats.
The fear of the unknown and not knowing as well as losing control usually produce anxiety, Phobias, addictions, pain, certain medications and previous traumas also contribute to anxiety. So many people would deny that they are anxious and yet resort to addictions for relief. And I don't mean drugs and alcohol and smoking. How many of you feel that you need sweets to relax you? How many find comfort foods (usually high caloric foods) for relaxation? How many go on shopping sprees to calm themselves? How many use sex for anxiety relief?
Don't you think any of the above have side-effects? Or worse still, they don't take the anxiety away for long? What if I told you there was a better way? A way that has proven to be a long lasting cure for anxiety? Well, if you're interested or curious, you will have to write or contact me.
Yes 2012 might be the year for you to address your anxieties and have the tools to release your anxieties. Wishing all my long time readers as well as my new readers a Year filled with Calm and Joyful Expectations.
