It’s never been a better time than right now for us to have a meaningful conversation about anxiety which anyone can fall victim to regardless of age, gender, situation or lifestyle.
I’m going to take this opportunity to put my hand up high and say anxiety is a daily battle for me and sometimes… in the heat of life’s challenges knowing what to do can be like grasping at nothing. It’s just one thing to come clean but another thing altogether to know what to do next…
Today, I am graced by the presence of the gorgeous Tammi Kirkness— Speaker, life coach and bestselling author of The Panic Button AND released just yesterday, The Panic Button for Kids!
In this episode we talk about Tammi’s own fight with panic attacks and how it led to the birth of her two gorgeous books and turning her experience into a practical step by step instruction guide for you and those around you. She also answers some pointed questions I threw at her about speaking anxiety, teens and self-care.
