ANTIDOTE FOR ANXIETY

There Is An Old, And Very Bad, Joke that says anxiety is no laughing matter. The fact is, it's really not—especially for folks who chronically suffer from it.

But that old, bad joke isn't even funny for many people who, while perhaps not debilitated, nevertheless find apprehension, uneasiness, sometimes dread, about the future, to be inevitable elements of modern day existence. The other day I was speaking with a woman who, for several years, has worked securely in a moderately sized business but now feels very insecure in her job. Another woman told me recently of her apprehension over an upcoming airplane flight. Since 9/11, many people have felt concern about being in, or even near, tall buildings, trains, and shopping centers.
