Today’s newsletter from my local hospital starts with the question “Do you have anxiety?” Then it links to an article that answers the question this way:

“If you have anxiety, you may feel symptoms associated with your mind like nervousness, distraction or repetitive thoughts. Are physical symptoms common with anxiety too? Yes, absolutely…”

I agree with the description of symptoms but labeling them as “having anxiety” is saying you have a disease. From a Logosynthesis perspective, ANXIETY IS NOT A DISEASE!

Anxiety is a temporary feeling you experience. It’s often a response to encountering something, either in reality or in your imagination, that is similar to or reminds you of an experience you once did not have enough resources to manage. Then, you froze your energy to protect yourself. Your brain automatically takes care of alerting you to potential danger and you feel anxious.

The three Logosynthesis sentences allow you to get that stuck, frozen energy moving again and the annoying symptoms vanish. It is an amazingly simple process that astonished me when I learned about it.

I wrote “Letting It Go: Relieve Anxiety and Toxic Stress in Just a Few Minutes Using Only Words” to share the good news that now anyone can learn to easily manage their own anxious feelings.  Just read it and follow the simple instructions.

This post is a comment I wrote about a passage on Page 68 of  Letting It Go: Relieve Anxiety and Toxic Stress in Just a Few Minutes Using Only Words (Rapid Relief with Logosynthesis®). You can see the passage in the book. You can also see the excerpt here. This link will take you to, where I regularly publish comments on parts of this book. This is a site where authors share of their work.
