Tuesday Tips – Anxiety VS Excitement – Vol 12

Anxiety and excitement are the same autonomous body response – the only difference is what it is you are feeling.


I was talking with a dear friend in regards to anxiety in starting a new job, and she responded with the above comment, to which I immediately said ‘HOLD THAT!’ pulled out my phone, asked her to repeat it, and wrote it down!

She then went on to explain a bit more, how it truly is mind over matter in this case, and how you can turn the anxious/nervous jitters of the day into EXCITEMENT – a power that can be used to tackle projects instead of create more problems in our minds!

I did a bit of research when I got home, and while I can’t find a dedicated Science Article besides a study Harvard completed, the general consensus is that this is true. That, coupled with my own life experience of being excited when according to most I should be feeling anxious, I feel that this is an amazing trick that truly allows one to move forward when you might otherwise be feeling helpless!

Let me know how this works for you in the comments below!
