WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS: ANXIETY&WORRY
WEEK ONE: What is anxiety?
WHAT IS ANXIETY?
-Anxiety and stress aren't exactly the same!
Stress is how your body deals with experiences and emotions, and anxiety is how your mind processes/thinks through/mentally deals with experiences and emotions.
IS IT OKAY THAT I FEEL ANXIOUS?
We all feel anxious and worried, because we all live in a broken world. You are NOT A BAD PERSON because you feel anxious. However, constantly living in a state of anxiety is not a good thing. It doesn't help us to live the life that God wants us to experience.
HOW TO I COMBAT AND GET OVER ANXIETY?
Our first step to combat anxiety is to acknowledge and name our emotions when we experience them. We will talk more about other ways to combat anxiety in the coming weeks!
Your weekly challenge this week is:
When you feel anxious or worried,
name OUT LOUD "Hey. I'm feeling anxious about _______."
Physically naming something is a good way to get a handle on your emotional state.
