Anxiety Part III: Past or Future Oriented

Engagement Details


There are two prominent types of anxiety, influenced by our past or future focus. Understanding whether we ruminate or anticipate as our primary anxiety type provides insight into what steps to take to become more grounded in the here and now. This learning helps us understand how we get stuck in our brain and how we have ignored our bodies. This is valuable for later parts of this series. This should be #4 in the series if you are going in order.
