Our first response to stress and anxiety is often to try to get out of it as fast as possible—perhaps to soothe ourselves by escaping into a book or movie, eating comfort food, or even taking medication. Yet Dr. Erin Olivo, author of Free Yourself from Anxiety, invites us to take a different approach that fully honors the source of our stress while not becoming caught up in the turbulent emotions it brings up. In this video clip, Dr. Olivo explores how we can invoke what she calls “wise mind” to deal directly with anxiety without letting it overwhelm us.
