How to calm your mind before a medical procedure

#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.
