Research shows that anxiety influences our physical health. Anxiety can cause ailments such as heart disease, physical tension, and can adversely affect your immune system. At CGC, we will work together to decrease your anxiety, while promoting more meaningful self-expression. Anxiety is an over exaggerated emotion, but if you don’t understand the source of your anxiety, it can disrupt your personal relationship(s) and professional goals. Anxiety can take over your life with: intrusive thoughts, catastrophic thoughts, pessimistic thoughts, perfectionist thoughts, guilt and shame based thoughts, and/or right hemisphere-based anxious thoughts (tendency to focus on negative information). At CGC we will learn mindfulness practices to stop identifying with thoughts so we can become an observer of our thoughts. Research shows that mindfulness practices provide fruitful benefits to our mind-body connection when practiced daily.
