Wouldn’t it be nice to rest? Not to simply stop working, but to experience true rest? That’s where anxiety gets in the way. While low amounts of anxiety helps us stay productive, many of us instead feel overburdened with anxiety – out of control and unable to stop. We’re restless and worried about what’s happening inside us.
Anxiety can come with shame, like there’s something “wrong” with us that we need to get rid of. But I believe there’s something important about anxiety that’s worth paying attention to.
