In the Western world, the term anxiety embodies a lot: disconnection from ourselves and loved ones; living our life for other people; the stress of our jobs, family, finances, and obligations; and the relentless chasing of the American dream. When we don’t make time to work through our anxiety, it leads us down a path of suffering and regret. But it doesn’t have to be this way.
Today on The Dhru Purohit Podcast, Dhru sits down with Dr. John Delony to discuss anxiety, where it comes from, and the impact it has on so many of our lives. In this episode, Dr. John tells his personal story of overcoming the anxious thoughts that robbed him of his happiness and what he did to reclaim the autonomy over his life to reconnect to himself, his wife, and his daughter. He also shares key strategies for outsourcing help, leaning into optimism, and learning how to find happiness and freedom in living for ourselves.
Dr. John Delony is a bestselling author, mental health expert, and host of The Dr. John Delony Show.
