3 Ways Trauma & Anxiety Are Connected

The anxiety that you feel today is not random. Anxiety in adulthood is often rooted in unprocessed stories of trauma… stories that our minds may have forgotten or suppressed but that our bodies still remember. As I talked about last week, our present anxiety is often trying to tell us some really important things about the story of our lives up to this point. But if you decide to begin reflecting on your childhood, what things should you be looking for? In this episode, I highlight 3 specific ways that trauma and anxiety are connected. I also share a personal story about a traumatic experience when I was 10 years old that has contributed to a pattern of anxiety in my life.
