If you’ve ever had a panic attack, you know that it’s scary and can feel like your world is crumbling around you. In this week’s podcast episode, I talk with Shannon Jackson, who, an anxiety recovery coach, shares her journey of living with anxiety for over a decade before finally learning how to manage it. Shannon struggled through panic attacks, agoraphobia, toilet anxiety (yes, it’s a thing!) and a myriad of anxiety-induced health challenges. She never thought she’d be able to live without anxiety, and though she tried to push it away, and managed to live a functional life, it wasn’t a healthy one. Shannon developed tolerance for her discomfort and now guides others in doing the same. This is a powerful episode and offers helpful tools if you are experiencing anxiety.
Shannon’s bio: Shannon Jackson is an anxiety recovery coach and the host of the A Healthy Push podcast. Shannon struggled with anxiety, panic disorder, and agoraphobia for 15 years, and now she helps people to overcome the things that she used to struggle with. She truly believes that with a little healthy push, recovery doesn’t have to take years, or be so hard. Shannon teaches people to see just how capable they are, and how to start living a life that is full of lots of peace, joy, freedom, and adventure!
