My best tips reducing anxiety

I love this quote from Wayne Dyer:

There is no stress in the world, only people thinking stressful thoughts.

You probably get that intellectually but life sure can feel stressful especially when are our to do lists are endless or we are experiencing some kind of expectation hangover.

One of the chief complaints I hear from people is that they are stressed out which creates anxiety.   Anxiety is a terrible feeling to have. It revs up our nervous system, puts stress on our body and disconnects us from our intuition.

To help you release anxiety and reduce the amount you think stressful thoughts, I made you a video sharing my best de-stressing techniques.

Keep this core principle in mind: you will only feel anxiety when your thoughts are in the future.  The best way to reduce stress in your life is to keep yourself in the present moment as much as possible.  And if your mind does wander to the future, at least make what you are thinking about a best-case scenario!  Creating worst-case scenarios with worry is using your imagination poorly.  Keep your thoughts positive and supportive.

In the video, I teach you a little about your brain and the fight or flight response that gets activated whenever we feel stress.  I share some physical practices you can do anytime you feel anxiety to calm your nervous system down so your brain stops creating stress hormones.

I hope you find these tools useful. Please head over to the blog and share your comments, questions or de-stressing techniques with me. I love hearing from you!

And remember: There is no stress, there are only stressful thoughts.  ((Tweet this!!))


p.s.  Having a solid support system and like-minded tribe is a great way to reduce anxiety and stress because you have a place to vent, receive compassion and guidance. That is one of the main intentions of my Inner Circle membership community. It is a safe space to for you to share and get helpful tools to navigate any stress in your life.  Learn more here or email jill@christinehassler.com to set up a call and discover if Inner Circle is right for you.

EP 80: How to Get Over Anxiety with Nicole

EP80v1This episode is about freeing yourself from pain and anxiety. Today’s caller, Nicole, is struggling to find her true intuition. She feels it may be lost to her, or clouded over by her deep-seated anxiety. She has used her anxiety for many years to protect herself, but she now realizes it is time to get over it and on with it. We made a beautiful discovery together I hope helps you connect some of the puzzle pieces in your own life.

The wonderful thing about pain and anxiety is that we have the power to free ourselves from it. Many of the overwhelming feelings we are having now are rooted somewhere in our past. Something devastating caused our young minds to create a program to follow, so we didn’t have to feel that way ever again.

As we grow, the ability to address our fears, and overcome our ‘victim story’ becomes available to us. We are able to comfort our younger selves by self-parenting and through work that is healing.

We also have the ability to acknowledge our need for protection, thank it for its service to us, and move our energy to where we need it now. We can then replace our impulsive responses with our inner voice, which is guided by our intuition. When we find our higher purpose, we find another more self-honoring, self-supportive way to get it.

Consider/Ask Yourself:

  • Do you suffer from anxiety? Is there something you would like to be free of?
  • Whenever you try anything new, does it come with a lot of fear?
  • Do you prefer control over uncertainty?
  • Did something happen in your past that might still be impacting you, but you are not sure what to do about it?

Nicole’s Question:

Nicole has anxiety-driven panic attacks, and lacks self-confidence. She longs to have a deeper life and become connected to the world.

Nicole’s Key Insights and Ahas:

  • She uses her anxiety as a source of protection.
  • She needs to feel she is in control of a situation.
  • As a child, she felt vulnerable.
  • Her intuition will be clearer when anxiety subsides.
  • She needs to respond rather than react.
  • It’s OK for her to make mistakes.

How to Get Over It and On With It:

  • She should tell her younger self, “things will be alright.”
  • Say, “I accept,” and then, “I am choosing to.”
  • Interrupt the patterns of anxiety.
  • Turn up the volume of her calm inner voice.
  • Understand the difference between resignation and acceptance.


  • Think about the “big deals,” or significant events in your life. What belief systems were formed then, that might be impacting you today?
  • Tell yourself the things you needed to hear during your “big deals.”
  • Understand that it was not your fault.
  • How does your protective mechanism serve you? Give it a new job description.

EP 67: Getting Over Anxiety with Daniel

EP67v2The holidays can be stressful. The good news is, you get to decide how much stress you are willing to take this holiday season. Oftentimes we have stress because we allow ourselves to have it. We say yes to too many things, and we hold an image of perfection, and it is the perfect, perfect, perfect BS, that stresses us out. Remember there really is no stress, only stressful thoughts.

This can also be a very lonely time of year. Especially if you are not in a romantic relationship, or recently went through a breakup. There is a blessing to be found in a lonely holiday. It can be a time to turn within and nourish your relationship with spirit. We can practice self-love through the act of being kind, gentle, and accepting with ourselves. Then from a place of self-acceptance, you can set strong intentions, and take action to bring more love into your life.

In today’s incredibly moving coaching session, Daniel would like to know how to deal with anxiety when he is away from home or in social situations. He is working towards moving past the abuse he experienced in his youth, but he needs practical advice from someone who acknowledges him from a place of love.

Our call was less about the why’s of Daniel’s anxieties, and more about coaching him into the experience of connecting with his younger self. It’s his younger self that is being triggered by events, not his grown-up self.

All kinds of abuse are painful. But, you do not have to be sentenced to a lifetime of suffering, because you are not a victim. I encourage you to break the cycle of abuse by healing your own. It is time to do healing work with the younger parts of yourself, so you can mentally process what happened, and tend to the part of you that went through the experience. Healing is the application of love to the places inside that hurt.

If you are feeling guilt and shame about being abusive to others, your healing involves applying love to the places inside that hurt. Reach out and get support from real people. Therapists and coaches can be extremely helpful in working with you, through dealing with your abuse.

Consider/Ask Yourself:

  • Is anxiety something you struggle with, especially in social situations?
  • Have you mentally processed your past, but can’t seem to shake some of the feelings that went with it?
  • Do you have a history of physical, mental, or emotional abuse?
  • Do you tend to minimize things from your past, because they weren’t as bad as things that happened to other people?

Daniel’s Question:

Daniel would like Christine to help him through his anxiety in social situations, and to dismantle his protective shell.

Daniel’s Key Insights and Ahas:

  • He feels physical discomfort from his anxiety.
  • He is minimizing his abuse.
  • He can’t seem to shift his guilt and shame.
  • He needs to tend to his younger self.
  • He should talk to himself from a place of love.

How to Get Over It and On With It:

  • He should practice the “empty chair” process, and tell himself it’s over.
  • He should reassure his younger self through a handwritten a letter.
  • He needs to be a loving, protective father to his younger self.
  • He should visualize a safe place — his grandma’s house for example.
  • He should start a meditation process.

Assignments and Takeaways:

  • Work through the “Empty Chair” process, which is included in my Mastery course.
  • Create a dialogue conversation with your younger self, through journaling.
  • Practice visualization.
