The Only Way Around Anxiety is Through It

by | Mar 22, 2020

I’m about to get cliche AF up in here …

One day at a time.

Yeah, yeah. I can feel the eye roll, but let drop some science first before you assume I’m just giving you lip service.

Why are stress and anxiety so high right now?

Well … duh … because we’re in the middle of a pandemic.

True. However, it goes a little deeper than that.

Let’s unpack what’s happening in our brains …

Our primitive brains love certainty.

Our primitive brains love to plan.

Our primitive brains have been stripped of both.

Certainty and planning can be helpful for survival.

So, when our brains don’t receive those things, we’re left feeling anxious.

Then, we worry. Worry gives us a sense of doing something.

Even though it’s not helpful … at least it’s something.

It also leads to irrational behaviors that give us comfort in a weird way (insert toilet paper joke).

If you are familiar with anxiety, then you know the only way around it is through it.

This is our reality.

We don’t know what’s going to happen weeks from now or months from now.

You know what you can control?


You have the ability to set your intentions for the day. To frame your situation in a positive light. To take action on the things that actually matter right now.

Give your brain that feeling of certainty that it craves. Plan for today.

Then, do it again tomorrow.

One day at a time.

See … it actually makes sense.
