Nothing may sap our Spiritual Health more than worry. I make this statement as a result of personal experience.
For many years I was a chronic worrier. (I sometimes kiddingly say that I inherited worry genes from my father's side of the family and anxiety genes from the other, though the truth of this, it's not very funny.) Worrying debilitated me, though I didn't know it at the time. It's a horrible dis-ease to be stuck in thoughts of "What if?", playing out worst case scenarios in your head, on edge, feeling sick to your stomach, sleepless, etc. Worry takes a terrible toll on your physical and mental health; your emotional well-being too. It certainly did mine.
I am SO glad that today I rarely worry. I've learned how to break the Worry Cycle. And if I do sense myself getting caught up in worry, I know what to do to nip that baby in the bud!
Recently, I had a wonderful radio interview with Kenny Brixey of Empower Radio about worry. His show, "Life's Tool Box" is such a helpful resource, and in this show we talked about "How to Live Worry Free."
I hope you enjoy the 25 minute interview. I also hope that it will inspire you to break the habit of worrying—because you deserve so much more! You deserve a life of EXTRAORDINARY Spiritual Health and Well-Being.

is a touchpoint. a resting place, a "remembering" of who we really are and how we can best live—kindly and compassionately with ourselves and others.
