Update on Using The 60 Second Panic Solution Program

The past 10 days or so have been a wondrous journey of healing for me. I have been using my new program, the 60 Second Panic Solution, non stop on my commute into work.

After my near miss with a panic attack and anxiety after I first started doing the program I decided to commit myself to the program 100%. No half- ass measures

I am truly at the point where I want to be free. I want to be healed and happy once and for all. I don’t want to be a slave to my anxiety anymore. I have been waiting most of my 48 adult years to feel this well and calm… Continue reading

Setback- And A Prayer

nemoI have been feeling so so good all of last week. In the weeks leading up to this moment, I have been studying and listening to:

Byron Katie- and “The Work”. I’ve been reading and and studied her book Loving What Is since last winter. Plus I listen to all those great and healing YouTube videos that have been helping me so much

Pema Chodron- the CD When Things Fall Apart I listen to in the car.

I was learning to just accept my life for the way it was. I was no longer resisting the panic and anxiety, just learning to flow with it… Continue reading

Mindfulness Meditation for Stress and Anxiety

mind full or mindfullI have a 20-25 minute commute to work each day. I use that time to listen to CDs that help me with stress and anxiety. This practice has truly has helped me be more comfortable at work.

Several years ago, my sister gave me a CD on mindfulness meditation by Pema Chodron. I think it was around the time I started this blog.

Back then when I listened to it, I admit it didn’t really do anything for me. I couldn’t really relate to it much. Sometimes I think you have to be in the right space to receive a message or to learn a new practice or technique for relieving stress and anxiety.

Recently I have been really keeping up with my discipline of anxiety self help and self improvement in general on my daily commute. Since I have to be in the car for that amount of time anyways I try to put the time to good use. Continue reading

60 Second Panic Solution Review- The End of Anxious Suffering

300x250a

Life is funny. I started this blog in earnest to document my recovery from anxiety and panic attacks. I have had ups and downs over the years.

And recently, the best solution I have ever experienced, literally fell right into my lap. I am so happy, I couldn’t wait to get this message out to you, my dear readers, who have stood by me through thick and thin.

A few days ago, I received a complementary copy of the 60 Second Panic Solution in my email. To be honest I usually don’t even open emails from people who have new products, as they are usually crap. But for some reason, maybe God felt it was time to answer my prayer for healing, open it I did. Continue reading

Can People Tell When You’re Anxious?

don't judge meYesterday I was channel surfing and came across a documentary on MTV about 2 young people with social anxiety. It was very interesting to watch.

I’ve always wondered if people can tell when I feel anxious. In this documentary I was able to make some observations.

One person was a 21 year old girl named Nonie, and the other was a 26 year old guy named Scott. Both still lived at home with their respective parents as they were too anxious to be out on their own.

I really tuned in while watching the guy Scott. His goal was to be able to go out and meet a girl. Apparently he had never had a date and was worried that he would be alone forever.

He had been bullied at school as a young boy and never stood up for himself. This was the jist of what started his social anxiety… Continue reading
