Anxiety is a clever challenger with a secret weapon. It uses logic, common sense, and our healthy neurological responses to manipulate us. It studies what is most important to us, what we value, and what we want in our future. And then it turns all that against us. Once you can see these strategies, then you can turn the tables on Anxiety and OCD.
Anxiety wants us to react to every obsession, every fearful thought and every uncomfortable sensation as though it is a signal of threat. It needs us to avoid specific “dangers” so that we can feel safe and comfortable. You are going to learn how to turn down the volume of that distracting noise. Then you’ll have a chance to focus your attention on taking back your life.
This powerful shift will completely change your relationship with your symptoms. It’s absolutely opposite of your current stance—“Stop these symptoms!” You will learn how this move fits into the unshakable logic of physics and takes advantage of the incredible power of your brain’s working memory. When you take command of your self-talk, moment-by-moment, you win over Anxiety and OCD.
Your most valuable skill will not be some special trick or technique. Instead, it comes from the best that cutting-edge neuroscience has to offer us and includes a simple yet profound shift in your attitude as you step forward. One of the many benefits will be your ability to train your brain’s limbic system to secrete less of the anxiety-inducing hormone epinephrine.
You’ll study some shrewd skills for pushing into Anxiety’s territory, including the rule to “only do what you want to do” and the cunning ploy of talking directly to your challenger. You’ll learn a quick and simple way to practice our plan using a game-like strategy of scoring against Anxiety and OCD moment-by-moment. Then, see the whole package in action in the 28-minute, 6-episode fictional series, The Noise in Your Head.
