“On the inside, it was just tight and twisted and so uncomfortable,” explains Sandy Woznicki, Stress + Anxiety Coach and Founder of the Grateful Resilience Method. After experiencing stress-induced insomnia for years of her life, Sandy knew she needed to make a change. Now, she helps other career-minded women rid themselves of their paralyzing anxiety to live fuller lives.
Like Sandy, many women do not realize they are struggling with anxiety. They may have stomach issues or assume they are forever insecure, but these are symptoms of a more significant problem. By evaluating the stories we tell ourselves, we can determine what is causing our inner lives to feel so agonizing and make the steps to move forward. Ultimately, we need to stop seeking external validation and realize we are enough at our core.
Even when it feels hopeless, you can work past anxiety and stress. Learn more about getting to the root of the problem, and reevaluating your narratives.
