I’ve always been a chronic worrier. In the last five years, that worrying has morphed into a more intense and chronic anxiety (or maybe it was always this bad and I just didn’t have a name for it). In any case, I’ve worked really hard at learning strategies to help me deal with my anxious thoughts, and I am much better at managing them now.
But anxiety is a subject that is near and dear to my heart. So when friend, puttypeep, and Puttylike Staff Writer, Neil Hughes, told me that he was doing a TED talk based on his wonderful book, Walking on Custard & the Meaning of Life, I couldn’t want to see it!
Behold a fantastic (and hilarious) look at anxiety, as well as some techniques you can use to “escape your custard traps and step onto solid ground.” You’ll see what I mean.
Congratulations Neil! You should be very proud. :)
If this talk resonated with you, please share it. Anxiety is an important topic that we need to be talking about more openly.
