This is the place where we know that the more we fight the worry the more worried we become.
What if you could allow yourself to be a woman worrier and woman warrior?
Someone who is strong, capable and resilient, come what may.
It’s time to stop battling against yourself and start using your power to meet the challenges of everyday with energy purpose, and bravery.

If getting a handle on your anxiety seems to be taking forever, this episode of Woman Worriers is for you. Host Elizabeth Cush interviews Mahesh Grossman, a certified clinical hypnotherapist and author of The One-Minute Anxiety Solution.


“I didn’t even realize it was anxiety. It felt like procrastination at first.”
— Mahesh Grossman

“The basic rule of anxiety—which I call the Modern Cave Man Rule—is ‘Keep going and don’t let the anxiety stop you,’ because otherwise the brain thinks it’s winning and helping you to survive by giving you the anxiety”
— Mahesh Grossman

“The more places we go to inside ourselves, the more we have to offer clients.”
— Mahesh Grossman

“You don’t have to get rid of all the anxiety. You have to get rid of enough anxiety that you can keep going.”
— Mahesh Grossman

“Any time we flee from doing what we want to do, that’s a victory sign to the Cave Brain — so we really do have to move forward.”
— Mahesh Grossman

“We cut off a part of ourselves to be safe; the soul retrieval is a way of bringing it back.”
— Mahesh Grossman

“Sometimes you don’t need information. Sometimes you just need energy.”
— Mahesh Grossman

“It’s all OK. You always are exactly the way you’re supposed to be.”
— Mahesh Grossman
