Perfectly Panicked - The Podcast on Anxiety, Panic, Mental Health and Stigma

By Wendy Tamis Robbins
Struggling with anxiety and looking for support from someone who’s been there? I lived with anxiety disorders for over 40 years. Now I'm shining light on our mental health struggles to end the stigma surrounding them, while teaching you how to turn anxiety into your superpower. I share the tools and treasures I discovered on my journey to freedom like mindfulness + nutrition, meditation + movement, resiliency + recovery. You'll leave feeling less alone and inspired by examples of what is possible. I'm an anxiety coach, bestselling author, speaker, attorney, stepmom + wife.
Listen on
This is Health Anxiety
Hey and welcome to Episode 12, all about health anxiety. This is my own "rant" about the voices that won't stop focusing on worst case scenarios, threats and bad outcomes. And it's all theoretical until it actually happens. You won't want to miss this validation of everything you've ever thought made you different than all these people walking around completely comfortable in these bodies.  And if you want to do some homework before next week's episode with Dr. Karen Cassiday, check out her work below.  Don't forget to Rate, Review and Follow the podcast so you don't miss any new episodes!

What Do You Love? A Meditation
Anxiety, worry and fear cannot co-exist with love and gratitude. This meditation is both a practice and an invitation. Both are inspired by the healing properties of gratitude - both physical and mental. In this practice I guide you through a list of simple pleasures and profound treasures that are just a few things I love and am so grateful for. I'm sure you will love them too! The invitation is then open for you to sit in your own space of gratitude and create a list of what you truly love. What makes your heart sing? Uncovering and rediscovering all the wonders we look past, all the small but significant gifts that we once adored and now have simply adapted to. What dazzles and enchants you? What makes you feel alive and safe and loved and grateful beyond measure? In this space our anxieties melt away and remind us to open and soften and love again.  Sending love!  Don't forget to Rate, Review and Follow so you don't miss any new episodes!

Calming Your Anxiety Amidst the Chaos
Feeling overwhelmed, anxious, angry, frustrated and hopeless by all that has been happening in the world? Then this episode is for you. I talk to Mindset Coach Lauren Balukjian about how to recognize, release and refocus these difficult emotions. I share specific tools on how to recognize when your carrying too much and how to process and release them in healthy ways in order to find a sense of purpose and peace.  And this episode is a two for one! After I share my strategies with Lauren on her Live Coffee Break, I ask Lauren to share her own story of courage and transformation after an unexpected divorce with 4 kids under the age of 6. She shares her professional pivot (another one ladies!) from racing up the corporate ladder three rungs at a time to coaching women. Now Lauren teaches business owners and corporate executives how to set healthy boundaries and live a fulfilling life. As a former Ivy League athlete, Lauren realized in her corporate job that she was competing against the one person she would never beat: Herself. As a certified coach, Lauren guides women back home to their truth through a unique process that overcomes self-sabotage and perfectionism.

Spring Meditation
In this meditation I invite you into pure relaxation and beyond, to imagine and embody the renewal, growth and possibilities of the Spring season. To turn inward and feel your own layers peeling back and the armor melting away, revealing the parts of you that are finding their way into the light. To explore the places within that are calling to be set free - to reveal your truest expression and the next best version of your most authentic self. Offering the affirmation "I embrace this time of change and transformation, growth and renewal. I manifest and accept the gifts the Universe has for me. My body is healthy, my mind is clear and my heart is whole. I am ready, I am worthy, I am enough." I lead virtual guided meditations 2x week for my law firm and I've gotten such great feedback, that I'm not only sharing this one with you, but I've decided to share one meditation per month going forward.

What Freedom From Anxiety Looks Like
❓ What does a life controlled by anxiety look like? ❓ How does someone end up there? ❓ What does freedom from anxiety look like? In Episode 3, I explore what a life controlled by anxiety looks and feels like. I talk specifically about the cause, the triggers, the thoughts, and the mental and social constructs that perpetuated it. And then I talk about the flip side. What it looks and feels like to leave your comfort zone, to escape from your safe place which is now your prison and to dismantle the walls of your box and step into the life waiting for you on the other side.  DOWNLOAD THE ANXIETY AUDIT: https://view.flodesk.com/pages/6201b4ee60ada4164ea71284 FOLLOW ME ON INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/wendy_tamis_robbins PERFECTLY PANICKED SHOW NOTES: https://wendytamisrobbins.com/2022/03/09/freedom-from-anxiety-what-does-it-look-like/ Please RATE, REVIEW + FOLLOW the Podcast so others can find this supportive community! 🤗 Sending love! ❤️
