As anxiety becomes more intense, it can become more and more daunting to turn down the anxiety volume. The mind, brain and body can all be impacted with this anxious energy, rumination and worry. Discover some of the ways to bring more calm to your life.

Psychotherapist, business coach, mother, and co-founder of an independent high school, Evan is a go-getter, yet somehow manages to stay super grounded — perhaps because she has chosen to live in a mountain town where she skis, bikes, hikes, rafts, canoes, gathers huckleberries, goes to the farmers market, and carves out time to sketch floor plans, house renovation ideas, and interior design concepts keeping her mind and body happy.

Kathleen R. Brennan, LCPC Change is constant and to resist change often requires a lot of energy. Loosening up that focus and grip of control allows for us to encounter life with more calm. Moving with the waves of change, rather than against them, are two very different pictures. Welcoming change can be similar to moving with and riding the wave of change with which we are presented. We can make adjustments as we tune into the movement and nuances of the wave until our feet land on the ground again.
