Your feelings are your feelings, but what you think about them and how this thinking has you reacting makes all the difference in how you feel the next moment. You can be relieved you were compassionate with yourself or totally freaked out and upset at yourself to letting anxiety rule your life.

Your thoughts are how you calm from anxiety. They have to do the heavy lifting to help you remember the control and skills you have. In this video, I’m going to show you how you are in control of them.

You can stop anxiety.

I know anxiety is scary but it needs you to be scared for it to continue to destruct your life. Anxiety is curable. It’s not something that you have to live through forever.

You may not think you can stop the anxiety, but you can. I’ve walked many people through getting over their anxiety and I know that you can change this.

Check out my video Biology of Fear that has information proven to  take away 50% of the stress, anxiety and panic in my clients. Get it here:

What do you say in your mind to stop your anxiety when it starts to get out of control?

awesome:) What I’m saying to calm myself down? I’m saying….what I’m thinking now is not true! Is not true!

Jodi Aman

Anxiety is such a dirty liar!


So true I love your videos, I’ve been dealing with anxiety since last year. It went away, and now returned. Like you always say, your mind play tricks on you! It does! Anxiety is a dirty liar!

Jodi Aman

Thanks Tiea, keep telling yourself how much of a liar it is! That will take its power! xo


I decide how to react and what to do in case what worries me happens. I imagine the different scenarios and find a solution to each one.


But I know this is not the right thing to do but it is what helps most. Expecting the worse and deciding how to handle it when it happens. This way whatever happens I am prepared and feel grateful that in reality it wasn’t as bad as expected

Jodi Aman

Why do you say it is not the right thing? Sounds very smart to me!


I was told in therapy that this is wrong because it “maintains” a negative thinking. That this was useful during the war because the danger was real and taking precautions was necessary, but not in a normal person’s life.

Jodi Aman

The point is that you feel empowered. That’s the part that works and settles your mind. Once you begin to trust yourself, it will be easier and easier to feel empowered. You may not need to work so hard. But it is the same skill, and same result. The anxiety is negative thinking and finding a way to handle it is positive thinking. #youroldtherapistswerestupid 😉

Jodi Aman

Very empowering!

“Feelings are not facts” I was told…and that helps me get past anxiety from unwanted feelings from past abuse. We can choose who we want to be.

Jodi Aman

This is so smart. Feeling are experiences, and we can make any meaning we want!


My mantra to kick anxiety away is: “Police! Don’t Move! ” Hey anxiety, “You have the right
to remain SILENT And You Will…” It helps put me in control of my run away thoughts 👏🏼

Jodi Aman

LOVE it!

Jodi Aman

Great job, Lorraine! You are very welcome!


Great reminders, Jodi. I tell myself “I got this” and remind myself to move toward my fear.

Jodi Aman

You do got this! I almost titled my book “You got this!”

Great advice, Jodi! My anxiety tends to be circumstantial and event related so luckily it doesn’t come upon me unawares. When it starts though I tell myself this too shall pass. Things always come to an end whether we win, lose or draw. I try to focus on the event being over.

p.s. I LOVE your video!

Awesome. Thank you! I LOVE you! xoxo


I just came across this thanks to my good friend Athena I need to come up with a mantra for myself. Thank you Jodi, this is so encouraging!

Jodi Aman

Isn’t Athena a goddess!? How about singing: “I have done it before, I can do it again!” <3


She is so amazing. I only recently connected with her about 3-4 weeks ago. She’s been an amazing source of encouragement for me in just that short time already.

I was actually thinking about what I can come up with for myself, last night while laying in bed. I’m really into music so I figure that could tie into this… “I am safe, I am a survivor, I can rock this healing journey” Whatcha think? 🙂

Jodi Aman

Beautiful! I LOVE it! Sometime when you have time, write down what skills you used to survive. Because this document will help when doubt comes in! xo


Great tips! Thank you!

Jodi Aman

You are very welcome!

Tanel Kirkland

I’m new to the anxiety/panic disorder and it’s been 6 months since I’ve had it and I’m trying soo hard to relax and stay calm. When my breathing goes out of wack and my hands get numb or my chest feels tight…that’s when I panic. I’ll try to use this method

Jodi Aman

Hi Tanel! Welcome to my blog. I’m so glad you found me! You can get rid of your anxiety. The trick is not to be scared of those things, and soon they will stop triggering you. I know that’s oversimplified, but hopefully you’ll watch more of my videos and they will help!

Sheila Bergquist

You always give such helpful advice. And I love your videos! I use the “I’m ok” mantra a lot.
