If you feel like your life is spinning out of control, you aren't alone! So many of us yearn for the ability to enjoy our lives and relationships, but feel stuck in a never-ending cycle of stress, upheaval, and crisis. It feels as though it's always something - maybe you get involved with the wrong partner, or your job presents unreasonable demands, your family expects the world from you, there is never enough time in the day, you just can't relax, and it seems like you're never enough. And the harder you work at feeling happy, the more miserable you become. Typical, right? It doesn't have to be. It is possible to feel better, because you are already wired for health! For so many people, life has felt anxiety-provoking and overwhelming for so long that it feels normal. But anxiety, whether the result of traumatic experiences or chronic life stress, is not something you just have to endure.
