Anxiety is such a pervasive human condition that we sometimes take its presence for granted unless it interferes with our daily lives, which for many of us can be an all too familiar reality.

But is there a different way of looking at this? Would we get rid of all anxiety tomorrow if we could?,

Or are there good things about it we would keep? How high or low would we want our anxiety to be? And what is it about the world that triggers our anxiety?

 

A fascinating talk from someone who, like many others, has experienced anxiety and who uses her knowledge and experience to encourage us to look at it from a different angle.

 

Annie Lee is a trainer and facilitator who promotes good mental health and wellbeing. She has developed the successful Staying Afloat Programme which encourages the growth of resilience and inner strength in a complex and challenging world.
