How the Mountains and Hiking Helped ME to Overcome Anxiety, Panic Disorder, and Agoraphobia

When you're working to recover from something like anxiety, panic, and agoraphobia, you often make things WAY more complicated than they need to be! I know I did! And when you do this, you easily lose sight of the simple, basic stuff that will help you A TON, like spending time in nature.

So in this episode, I'm sharing something with you that has always been a huge passion of mine - hiking and the mountains! And I'm sharing with you how these things helped me in so many ways to overcome anxiety.

And I promise, this episode will be super helpful for you even if you don't like to hike or consider yourself much of an outdoorsy person!

Here's a glimpse at what I dive into in this episode:

  • How it's so powerful and important to CHOOSE to do the things you value in life rather than allowing fear and anxiety to choose.

  • How it's truly safe to panic anywhere, and how I learned that I could feel really anxious and experience a panic attack while being miles and miles from "safety."

  • How nature is one of the best (and easiest) places to practice mindfulness.

  • How I took an anxious thought about a food allergy, went AT the fear, didn't let anxiety choose, and how freeing it felt.

  • How being in nature has so many cognitive benefits!

  • Why I chose to have Amelia (my daughter) in nature daycares/schools from the start.

  • How you can apply everything in this episode to your life, even if you don't hike or consider yourself to be outdoorsy!

Make sure to tune in and listen to the full episode for all the goodness!
