Nervous All the Time? Here’s Why

Your mind never seems to stop racing.

You’re nervous from morning to night… and sometimes you’re not even sure why.

If you’re feeling trapped by anxiety… if it’s keeping you from truly enjoying life… I have good news.

There IS a way out of this trap.

And I’m going to show you.  

Late-life anxiety is an overlooked area of medicine–which is a problem because anxiety is a problem for a lot of people during their senior years.  

In fact, anxiety is twice as prevalent as dementia.

Anxiety affects at least 20% of us. And I suspect those numbers are even higher, because some people don’t want to admit they’re nervous all the time.  

We all feel nervous from time to time. But if anxiety is stopping you from living your life, you need to do something about it.

Which is why I give you…

Dr. Scott’s Anxiety-Stomping Program:

  • My favorite method for dealing with anxiety is called exposure therapy. Often, the things we are afraid of turn out to be not as bad as we think. Exposure therapy is simply putting yourself in the situation that causes you anxiety in small doses. This works well for fear of snakes, flying, or talking in front of groups… but doesn’t work well for anxiety that comes from outside forces (like having a visit from one of your children who is a problem).  
  • Sleep: Anxiety and sleep go hand in hand. Most of us know we feel more anxious when we don’t sleep, but getting enough sleep can be a tough battle. Natural supplements like L-theanine, melatonin, and chamomile can be very effective.
  • Calming herbs: Speaking of sleep… I’ve given herbs usually used for sleep to people who have anxiety and found they work pretty well (though, not for everyone). Try taking a half-dose of a sleeping formula in the morning and see how it works.
  • Exercise: Anxiety and exercise also go hand in hand: exercise reduces anxiety. Find something that works for you that you enjoy. The more you can make exercise fun, the better. 

Health and Happiness,

Scott Olson
