Your heart starts racing. It’s hard to breathe. Everything around you starts to spin out of control. And you freeze — feeling like you've completely lost control.

Terrifying, right? 

If you’ve ever felt like this — you’re not alone. In fact, anxiety impacts over 40 million adults — and women are twice as likely to be affected. (Myself included!) 

But what if I told you that you’re not helpless against anxiety?

Look, I’m not a doctor or a therapist, and I don’t play one on the internet… However, over the years, I’ve put together a simple, five-step process that helps me turn off anxiety and stop panic attacks when they start to hit.

I call it my “5s Toolkit” – and it’s helped me calm down and take back control more times than I can count. These are practical tools that I've personally used to regain control and find my calm amidst the chaos, including:

  • How to calm down quickly when anxiety hits in public 
  • Where to go when you need a panic-proof safe haven
  • Easy self-talk tweaks that put you back in control
  • The 5-minute exercise that gives hours of relief
  • Drug-free treatments that rival antidepressants 
  • The WORST thing you can do when fighting anxiety
  • How to instantly flood your brain with “feel good” chemicals 

Watch now and learn 5 science-backed strategies to stop anxiety before it takes over.

If you are in crisis, please contact the National Suicide Prevention Hotline at https://suicidepreventionlifeline.org/ or 1-800-273-TALK (8255), or call your local emergency services.

Now it’s your turn. What helps you calm down when a big wave of anxiety hits?

In the comments below, please share what’s worked best for you so we can all help each other live a calmer, anxiety-free life.

No matter what, I want you to know that you’re not alone and you’re not broken. 

We're all human. We're messy, brilliant, emotional, love-and-ego-filled creatures doing the very best we can in any given moment.

These tools worked for me, and I hope they help you too. But, most importantly, find what works for YOU so you can tackle anything life throws at you, and keep on going after your big dreams.
