In this video, I teach 10 essential daily habits to manage stress and anxiety. But in this video, I’m also going to explain a way of thinking about stress that can transform it from just something bad that happens to you into something that you can channel and use to be more productive, and also help you feel calmer.
You’re going to learn 10 daily habits to reduce stress and anxiety. The stress response is your body’s activating response. When you sense a threat your body turns on the sympathetic response, sends out some adrenaline to spur you into action, heightens your breathing and heart rate to prep you for performance. When you think of Anxiety as motivating energy to resolve problems, Anxiety can become a powerful tool instead of just something bad that you want to avoid. And even if you do have an anxiety disorder. These tools will help you reduce your stress levels and get healthier.

I’m Emma McAdam, I’m a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I have worked in various settings of change and growth since 2004. My experience includes Juvenile Corrections, Adventure Therapy programs, Wilderness Therapy programs, an Eating Disorder Treatment Center, a Residential Treatment Center, and I currently work in an Outpatient Therapy Clinic.
In therapy I use a combination of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Systems Theory, Positive Psychology, and a Bio-Psycho-Social approach to treating mental illness and other challenges we all face in life. The ideas from my videos are frequently adapted from multiple sources, many of them come from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, especially the work of Steven Hayes, Jason Luoma, and Russ Harris. The sections on stress and the mind body connection derive from the work of Stephen Porges (the Polyvagal theory), Peter Levine (Somatic Experiencing) Francine Shapiro (EMDR) and Bessel Van Der Kolk. I also rely heavily on the work of the Arbinger Institute for my overall understanding of our ability to choose our life direction.
And deeper than all of that, the Gospel of Jesus Christ orients my personal worldview, sense of security, peace, hope and love. https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/comeuntochrist/believe
