Change is difficult. As we grow and learn about our bodies and our emotional limits, we have to make changes that are healthier for us, which can bring on feelings of guilt and changing expectations from others and ourselves. Learn about the two types of anxiety that stem from the Left Brain and Right Brain science of anxiety. Bonnie explores the One Thing Principle and two soul-care tips to lower anxiety using the right brain science.

Bonus: Breathe listener Amy shares about the stress of being a people pleaser and introvert during holidays and her tips on how to lower stress.

Learn the necessity:

  • To mourn giving up what used to be before we could embrace the new things.
  • To make changes: Just because things can’t be the same doesn’t mean they are bad.
  • To deal with guilty feelings when you’re overwhelmed with social interaction.
  • Healthy boundaries, so when you are together, you can focus on the why and enjoy the time together vs. the “when” of when you get together.

Scripture: Your love, oh Lord, reaches to the heavens. Your faithfulness stretches to the skies.” - Psalm 36:5
