Show 174 - Nutrition Self-Care for Your Anxiety Symptoms

September is National Self Care Awareness month and I am getting all kinds of reminders to go to a spa, buy water at CVS, take a shot of serum or a shot of something fermented.

If we step around the commercial appropriation of self care we might find something really important.

You can get might hungry on the anxiety road. One strong panic attack and you might be looking for that choco-chunk of pleasure. A moment of pleasure then comes the crash. Do you have to give up all the things you love?

Nope and I think I can make my case by a trip the imaginary Anxiety Road Diner and pursing the menu.

If you need support contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255, the Trevor Project at 1-866-488-7386 or text “START” to 741-741.
