#621 This week we’re reflecting on what you can do to create more peace and calm during the winter time. In the northern hemisphere, December can be dark and busy and we often receive questions from our listeners about how to support their mind through the darker months.
This show is sponsored by BetterHelp. 
For most of you, the holiday season is a time for enjoying family and friends, gift giving and enjoying special treats. Whether or not your family gives gifts during the holidays, you get to choose what you give to yourself. Whether it’s by starting therapy or treating yourself to a day of complete rest– remember to give yourself some love this holiday season. 
Therapy is helpful for how to set boundaries and look after yourself. It empowers you to be the best version of yourself. If you’re thinking of starting therapy, give BetterHelp a try.  
In the season of giving, give yourself what YOU need – with BetterHelp.

#668: This week on the Anxiety podcast we’re discussing how to lower your anxiety and look after yourself before and during medical procedures thanks to a request from one of our listeners.
"I would love an episode that focuses on calming prior to a procedure, big or small. Something as simple as getting a vaccination or blood draw to knee surgery or open heart surgery. Fear, uncertainty, anticipation, and vulnerability triggers anxiety for me every time. I am helping my daughters navigate this and would love tips to keep me grounded no matter what is happening or coming so I can help them stay in the present as well. Thanks you for all that you do. Keep slaying!"

This time of year can be a bit overwhelming, and it’s totally natural to feel some sadness or anxiety about it.  Navigating the change in weather, planning for the holidays and all that comes with the hustle and expectations we put on ourselves. 
Therapy can be a bright spot amid all of the stress and change –  something to look forward to, to make you feel grounded, and to give you the tools to manage everything going on. It isn’t just for those who’ve experienced major trauma; etc.
If you’re thinking of starting therapy, give BetterHelp a try. Just fill out a brief questionnaire to get matched with a licensed therapist, and switch therapists any time for no additional charge.
Find your bright spot this season, with BetterHelp.
