all about anxiety

#81: All about anxiety

Share the love, spread the word

with Dr Jodi Richardson

Between the pandemic, state of the world, economy and good ole perimenopause hormones, it’s understandable if you often feel anxious. Am I right?

But how do you know when what you feel is everyday anxiety or something that requires professional attention?

I invited Dr Jodi Richardson to the show to ask her exactly this, among other things. Jodi is an international speaker, the best-selling author of Anxious Kids and Anxious Mums and a respected media commentator in the wellbeing and parenting space.

Some of the things we talk about:

  • what’s the difference between feeling anxious, and a clinical diagnosis;
  • Jodi’s personal experience with anxiety and how it manifested from childhood and wasn’t diagnosed until her 20s;
  •  anxiety in children and adults;
  • how anxiety can show up in physiological responses in the body;
  • techniques and strategies to manage anxious feelings.

It’s a looooooong chat, but I think it’s a deserving subject. The more we know about anxiety, the better we can deal with it and improve our wellbeing.

It’s a subject that was once ignored or dismissed, but we can now recognise it’s a common feeling and something we can treat, whether it be the everyday variety, or a diagnosed illness.

I hope this conversation all about anxiety helps you or someone you love.
