6 Questions to Ask Yourself When You're Feeling Anxious with Taylor Irby | Episode 25

Parenting and marriage coach Taylor Irby talks about the key questions we need to ask ourselves when we’re feeling anxious. These questions will help you understand the deep drivers of your anxiety and lead you to trust God. Even if you know where your anxiety is coming from, you might be surprised to find there’s something deeper going on. Identifying that could be the difference between having peace or continuing to live in stress.

Taylor also shares more wisdom:

  • The “window of tolerance” which will help you assess your level of stress and anxiety and find ways to bring yourself back before exploding
  • How do we practically give something to God
  • Her testament of how God used her high anxiety season to strengthen her faith in preparation for some really difficult life events

If you feel maxed out, stressed out, and anxious, start using these tips from Taylor.
