5 Steps To Conquering Extreme Fear : Anxiety, Panic Attacks, Agoraphobia & Boogie Monsters Be Gone!

In case you haven't noticed, I'm a fan of inspirational quotes. So, I did some digging & came up with a fitting quote for each of the five steps outlined in the video. ENJOY!

1. Exposure Therapy

"Feel the fear, and do it anyway." -Susan Jeffers

2. Grounding Exercises

"Good for the body is the work of the body, good for the soul the work of the soul, and good for either the work of the other." -Henry David Thoreau

3. Amino Acids...

"Gaba plays a major role in anxiety, and serotonin plays a role in at least some types of anxiety... The great thing about supplementing with amino acids is that you'll get immediate feedback: positive effects, adverse effects, or no changes at all." -Trudy Scott

4. Self Talk

"He who would be useful, strong, and happy must cease to be a passive receptacle for the negative, beggarly, and impure streams of thought; and as a wise householder commands his servants and invites his guests, so must he learn to command his desires and to say, with authority, what thoughts he shall admit into the mansion of his soul." -James Allen

5. Visualization

"When confronted with a situation that appears fragmented or impossible, step back, close your eyes, and envision perfection where you saw brokenness. Go to the inner place where there is no problem, and abide in the consciousness of well-being."
- Alan Cohen
