In today’s episode of the Idea to Value podcast, we speak with Denise Jacobs, author of Banish your inner Critic, about how to overcome anxiety during this incredibly stressful time.

Quote from the episode:

You don’t have to do anything.

We don’t have to be doing stuff all the time.

Part of what people are experiencing is a deeply ingrained habit, to be busy, to be active, to be doing something…

…To be looking like you’re doing something…

For so long that this habit is what you’re trying to break.

Because intrinsically all of came out of the womb knowing how to be.
