Minds worry at times. It’s what they do.
When you see how all minds think on repeat about things that aren’t actually happening (i.e., worry), you begin to see how irrelevant it is. You begin to see how little attention or respect from you it actually requires. Seeing worry in this way strips it of its perceived power and frees you from it.
The resources below will help you see worry in a brand new way. I highly recommend joining me in the next The Little School of Big Change course for more in-depth insights about how all minds work.
In this episode, we look at what happens when we plan + panic = planick. But mostly, we look at how incredibly, unbelievably resilient humans are.

"I rediscovered the peace that I’ve always had within me... I still get caught up in my thinking but the world is a much more beautiful, peaceful place to live in now that I know how my experience of it is created.”
“I don't feel the same need to rush in and try and 'fix' every situation when I'm upset or if someone around me is upset. I'm seeing in the most wonderful way that when I allow myself and others some space before jumping in to figure it out in the heat of the moment that solutions to problems naturally arise or there's nothing that needs to be done. It's pretty amazing - so grateful.”
“Amy led me through this understanding in a very simple and accessible way. Not only did I have many great insights, but I saw tangible results in the way I now approach my unwanted habits.”
