Charlene’s tip for dealing with anxiety
1. Go after the cause, not the symptoms. Anxiety is a message from your body to stop what you’re doing and notice that you’re hurting. We need to find and tend to what’s beneath the message.
2. Try to normalize the feeling. It’s a sign of your body trying to help.
3. Nourish and move your body. It may not be the cure for anxiety but it does play a big part.
Outside the therapy room
I’m kicking my own ass at Bikram yoga. I’m fortunate enough to sit across from beautiful people all day. But the sitting part is brutal. Bikram fixes that, plus yay for heat shock proteins. I also live at cafe’s. I’ll often be that weirdo nerding out in the corner with a giant (ill-advised) coffee.

THE JOE ROGAN EXPERIENCE PODCAST
This is a podcast built around long, casual conversations with the most interesting and brilliant people on the planet. I find listening to how these people think and live fascinating. The host Joe is a hilarious character. He’s a straight shooter, so you either love that or hate that about him. But I love a good rascal! Favourite guests so far have to be Dr Rhonda Patrick, Paul Stamets, Michael Pollan, Russell Brand, and Hamilton Morris.
