How to disappear anxious feelings from your body

I've got something incredible to share today. Over my 14 years of working with amazing individuals like you, I've stumbled upon a magical solution that banishes anxiety – and it's not what you might expect.

I'm not a psychologist, but I'm passionate about helping people take charge of their feelings. Anxiety can be like an unwelcome guest, lingering when it's least wanted. But I've discovered a secret that can help you reclaim control over your emotions.

Anxiety is a two-part problem – it affects both your brain and your body. You can talk to your brain all day, but sometimes that's not enough. You need to address what's happening in your body too. Enter my magical solution: walking.

Walking has been a game-changer for me and countless clients dealing with anxiety. It's not just about cardio; it's about moving emotions through your body. Whether you have 10 minutes or an hour, a brisk walk can reset your emotional state.

I love showing up at my best for my clients. Whether it's a group session, one-on-one coaching, or a business meeting, I want to be present and unburdened by my own emotions. Walking helps me achieve this.

Remember, anxiety isn't just about the thoughts in your head; it's also the physical sensations in your body. Walking helps calm your nervous system, allowing you to show up as your best self.

But here's a crucial point: walking is not multitasking time. It's a dedicated moment to move emotions through your body, not a time for podcasts or phone calls. So leave the headphones behind and focus on the journey.

I've recommended this strategy to many clients who deal with anxiety daily, and it's worked wonders. Don't just try to rationalize or talk yourself out of it – move those emotions. Trust me; your body will thank you.

Now, let's switch gears and discuss weight loss. I've worked with hundreds of clients on their weight loss journeys, and I want to share three key insights.

  1. Strength Training Over Cardio: Cardio can be effective, but it's not a long-term solution. Your body quickly adapts, requiring more time or intensity to achieve the same results. Instead, focus on strength training. It not only burns calories but reshapes your body, making it a sustainable approach.

  2. Mindset Matters: Negative self-talk can sabotage your weight loss efforts. Challenge those beliefs that weight loss is impossible for you. Treat yourself with the same encouragement and support you'd give a friend. Your mindset can make or break your journey.

  3. Calorie Deficit, Not Restriction: Forget restrictive diets. The key to weight loss is maintaining a calorie deficit. Enjoy real food and include treats in moderation. Sustainable changes are the ones that lead to lasting results.

Stay tuned for part two next Tuesday, where I'll share more weight loss wisdom. Remember, I'm here to help you succeed on your journey to a healthier, happier you.
