Description

Live Your Life Free From Stress, Worry and Anxiety

The Redirect Anxiety Habit Course is a video series that will help you to get rid of stress, worry and anxiety - so you can enjoy breathing the fresh air of a new chapter in your life.

I use videos filled with examples, analogies and simple language - so that you can absorb every minute of it.

I've used the habits that I teach in this course myself, and they work. 

Don't let anxiety get in the way of enjoying life.

You can enjoy a life free from anxiety, but you can't do it through sheer willpower alone. You need to learn how.It can feel like you're all alone. Like you can't breathe, and the world is closing in around you. You ask yourself, why me? Can somebody help me? Am I having a heart attack? is there anything I can do to stop this?

Living with anxiety isn't easy. Sometimes, it can feel like you are completely losing your mind. And it doesn't help that everybody around you treats you like you are losing you mind. The looks you get, that seem to say:

"Why don't you just calm down? Stop making such a big deal out of everything!"

If only it were that easy. But it doesn't work. You can try to calm down until you're blue in the face, but it's just going to make it worse. Why doesn't anybody else see that?

You end up avoiding everything that might cause anxiety, just to avoid any sliver of a chance that your anxiety might kick into full speed again. And if it does, you know there is little to stop it - aside from perhaps another pill. They might help, but you know you don't want to end up taking pills every day. Then you know that you'll really feel crazy!

So what can you do?

Anxiety affects 18% of the US population, and it is not slowing down. Anxiety destroys relationships, careers and the ability to enjoy life. Anxiety can get better, but it can also get worse.

Unfortunately, just wanting to get better isn’t enough. Anxiety can’t be cured by sheer willpower alone. Redirecting anxiety is a skill that needs to be learned, like when you learn a language. You can't learn a new language without lessons.

There’s no need to struggle through life with anxiety, or try to use willpower alone to overcome it.

Since the onset of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) machines, our understanding of how the brain works has multiplied exponentially over the past decade. Unfortunately, most of this knowledge hasn’t made it to the general public to be put to good use.

To live a life free from anxiety and panic attacks, you need a complete, 3-dimensional set of lessons. That's what this course is. By going through this course, you get:

  • A guide to the unique SPICE method: A step-by-step method for overcoming anxiety attacks
  • A simple psychological trick (the 'C' in the 'SPICE' method) that is far more effective treating panic attacks than simply trying to 'calm down'
  • An understanding of what exactly anxiety is, so that, when anxiety isn’t a mystery to you, you can take control of your own mind
  • Steps you can take to develop body and mind health, to support both in overcoming anxiety
  • A complete, practical guide to habits that you can bring into your daily life to reduce anxiety every day - and eventually eliminate anxiety as a factor in your life completely!
  • And, if anxiety ever does return, you'll have the knowledge you need to handle it with confidence

By joining this course, you will gain access to:

  • All 26 course videos (A total of over 2 hours), developed exclusively for this course
  • All extra course material, exercises and chapter summaries
  • The Redirect Anxiety community, where you have a chance to discuss any topic on the course discussion boards
  • A trusted support channel, where you can email me any time and expect a considerate and well-thought out reply
  • Permanent access to all of these materials, for life. You can revisit this content anytime to keep integrating these habits into your life
  • And much more

I created this course from a passion for helping those who have anxiety. From a young age, I’ve had a insatiable interest for psychology and discovering exactly how the mind works.

This passion translated into following the latest research into neuroscience, at a time when there has been an explosion of research into this field. As I found anxiety in my family, I started to see how this research could help overcome anxiety.

My wife and I both have experience with anxiety. Through the tools I teach in this course, my wife and I now live a life completely free from anxiety and panic attacks, and, if anxiety does return, we know how to deal with it.

Anxiety is debilitating, it can keep you from all of this - and will continue to keep you walled off from the life you want to live, unless you learn how to overcome it.

The habits I teach have been tested, and are proven to work. Time and time again, those who have taken this course have proven that the results I’m talking about are possible.

Who is the target audience?
  • If you often become anxious about things that seem perfectly normal to others
  • If you have panic attacks that feel overwhelming, like the world is ending
  • If you feel like you don't have control over your anxiety, and live in constant fear of your next panic attack
  • If you have children, family or friends with anxiety and would like to learn to help them overcome it

Introduction
4 Lectures 11:08

What can you expect?

In this course introduction, you will learn about how the course is structured. I've built the course in a way that simply guides you through complex mental processes that cause anxiety, then provides you with concrete, actionable solutions to resolving each.

Course Introduction
00:51

Anxiety is very common - it affects approximately 18% of the US population, according to the National Institute of Mental Health

In this section, we'll explore what anxiety looks like - particularly focusing on the early warning signs that an anxiety attack might be on its way. The sooner you can identify an upcoming anxiety attack, the sooner you can arm yourself with the SPICE technique (which I will cover later in the course) to overcome the attack.

Preview 03:09

In order to fix something, you must first understand how it works.

I've sometimes been asked to jump straight into the 'meat' of the course - to basically move straight into the SPICE method and the steps you can take to overcome anxiety. However, I believe it is important to first have an understanding of how anxiety works. The reason is simple: Everybody is a little different, but if you understand the fundamentals of how anxiety works than you can better adapt the solutions I will provide you later in this course to your specific scenario.

Why should I care how it works? Can’t I just fix it?

We conclude our Shark Tale with the messy mash-up of several mental processes colliding - the end result of which is anxiety, stress and worry!

Anxiety, Stress and Worry Scientific Research Geek

I’ve developed a practical, results-oriented plan to help eliminate anxiety from your life. It works, and helps people who suffer from anxiety to life a more fulfilled, fear-free life. Without anxiety in your way, you can focus on the things that really matter in life, like family, friends and simply savoring the little things!

Today, I live in Dubai, UAE, with my incredible wife, Cherise. She is my soulmate. Over the past several years, we’ve shared a series of unforgettable adventures together – from hiking through leech-infested jungles in central Thailand, to exploring glaciers in Alaska and even starting our own Event Management company together. In February 2015, we were married with family and friends at on the Palm Jumeirah, not far from where we now live.

It’s been a long, and amazing, journey to get to where I am today.

Cherise and I spend our weekends as a series of mini-adventures, exploring the desert through camping trips or new restaurants on date night. We live a happy and satisfied life. Over the years, I’ve offered my advice on life, happiness and perspective to friends and family members. To my surprise, many of them were very receptive of this and saw positive results in their lives as a result of these discussions. Based on these discussions, I now use this website to share what I know and have learned about happiness and anxiety-free living with the world.
