Reduce Your Anxiety

Kids Getting on a School Bus
The new school year is almost here–and fall is upon us–well, at least here north of the equator! Here in the States (yep folks–we’re now getting readership from South America, Africa and I think–Australia! Or I think we are–could be just spam!)–where was I? Oh yes–here in the United States, the day after our Labor Day holiday–usually around Sept 1st, is almost the start of a new year–because of school.

I was born in November–so this time of the year is special to me.

And even those of us who don’t have children in school — we now have to watch for the school buses, who may make us wait while the school kids board, while we tap our steering wheels with impatient fingers, worried about getting to work on time.

Life seems to pick up energy at this time of year — and our anxiety level may pick up too. I came across an article that might help ease the pain of anxiety. It looks at three ways to deal with tough, anxiety ridden situations.
