Everyone experiences anxiety and worry sometimes. However, when anxiety controls your life, it pulls you away from things that you care about. In this episode, Diana interviews Dr. John Forsyth about his new book Anxiety Happens: 52 Ways To Find Peace of Mind. Dr. Forsyth shares why he was drawn to researching and applying Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for anxiety. He discusses the role of avoidance in anxiety, concrete strategies to respond to anxious thoughts and how to “drop the rope” in the tug of war with worry.
