5 Ways to Lower Stress & Anxiety | IMPACT Q&A

For today’s episode, I am answering 2 great questions that I believe are going to help you be better. Both questions deal with health, fitness, and “getting your mind right.” The first question comes from a fellow MindRight Maniac who is dealing with some added anxiety and pressure after accepting a big job promotion in his career. I offer him 5 specific strategies, techniques, and tools to handle his additional stress.

The second question comes from Fitness Quest 10 standout member and 70-year old fire-breathing dragon Bernie Rhinerson. Bernie asks what else you can do beyond age 70 to be sure to age healthy and strong. Man, I love that tenacious spirit and attitude to keep getting better. Wait until you hear what I have to say on this one!

The bottom line is this…everything I talk about on this episode is applicable for anybody, at any age, and I know will get you better. If you have the desire to be stronger, healthier, fitter, and want to truly “GET YOUR MIND RIGHT,” be sure to listen to this episode.
