How I Helped Overcome Years of Anxiety and Reclaimed My Inner Peace Once and For All

Anxiety was something I dealt with many times throughout my life. 

It was also something that I saw both of my parents struggle with as it heavily impacted their lives on a daily basis. 

Even though I often experienced anxiety to a milder degree when I was young, it wasn’t something that I was concerned about. 

I could still go about my day-to-day activities with relative ease. 

After meeting my husband, having my two daughters, and dealing with a constant barrage of workplace politics, anxiety slowly started to spiral out of control. 

I began to worry about both my family and career. 

I eventually reached a point in my life where I felt terrified about pretty much everything and everyone. 

Fast forward to when the pandemic struck – being a nurse I had to deal with multiple, possibly contagious patients on a daily basis. 

What’s worse, my husband lost his job through no fault of his own when his company declared bankruptcy…

I couldn’t shake off this never-ending feeling of impending doom…

That constant worry simmering in the back of my mind… 

That small voice in my head grew louder and louder each day…

It wasn’t until my  anxiety completely took over that I knew it was time to do something about it.

And I’ve tried everything to get rid of my anxiety, but nothing seemed to be working.

I grew so tired of reading the same generic advice to ‘breathe deeply’ and ‘try to be mindful’. 

How am I supposed to just “do” that? 

It’s not like it’s a choice if you find yourself in the middle of a panic attack…

  • I got tired of the numerous side effects of prescription meds. All they did was make me feel empty and numb.
  • I went through tons of self-help books, but I couldn’t relate to them.]
  • Tons of expensive doctor visits, I thought the huge cost would get me guaranteed results

I was desperate for a solution. I knew that I needed something more sustainable in the long run.

I was beginning to lose faith, until one day, I stumbled across an online quiz for people with anxiety. I had my reservations, but answered a few simple questions as honestly as I could.

They had a short little quiz where they asked me a few questions about my goals, emotional state, sleep patterns, and loads more.

It was called Sensa – a personalized anxiety-reduction plan. 

After I filled it in, I was presented with a personalized plan where I’d get one email a day containing an exercise to help manage my anxiety.

I received a personalized 84-day plan to help control my anxiety. Each day I would be sent different reading materials and tasks to complete.

I was hesitant to begin with. 84-days felt like a long stretch. Was I ready for the challenge?

Yes.

The daily tasks helped me slip into a pattern, which meant the consistency (that so often eluded me) – was way better.

For the first time, I felt like I was understood. This plan was for me, and me only.

These exercises also came with tips and tricks like a short guide on how to clear my anxious mind with the help of meditation. 

And everything was prepared by professional psychologists and based on already-proven CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) practices.

I have to say I had my doubts. It’s not like I haven’t tried a bunch of “mindfulness exercises” that were supposed to somehow magically help before.

But I’ve never seen such a personalized approach. 

They were speaking to me directly, focusing on my problem areas, my goals, my needs. It wasn’t the regular one-size-fits-all fix.

So I took a leap of faith and signed up for  Sensa’s plan.

Taking the first step is always the hardest – but I was guided every step of the way.

Whenever you’re starting something new or trying to make a habit stick, the hardest part is the beginning.

I’ve learned you have to remind yourself to do that one thing, over and over again, on a consistent basis.

The Quick Relief tool came to my rescue so many times. If you suffer from panic attacks as I do – this one is a real lifesaver!

It takes time and patience to form a habit. So initially, I used a notepad and my alarm clock to remind myself of the daily exercises and tasks that I needed to do.

There was no pressure. They didn’t push me. If I felt like I needed a break, I would simply take a “day off” and just pick up right where I left off.

This also meant that it didn’t require too much commitment upfront, making it super easy for me to stick to the routine.

Over a short, difficult period of time, my anxiety symptoms began to disappear

The great thing about receiving just one email a day is that it helped me to focus only on forming that one habit.

I learned how to cope. I noticed that I’m much more in control when a stressful situation presents itself. I wouldn’t spiral out and could just keep going.

Even when I wasn’t doing the exercises and just going about my everyday activities, I’d still use many of the principles I learned with Sensa.

At the end of the day, long-term consistency always wins over any short-term solution. It’s the small gains over time that actually last and help reprogram your subconscious mind. 

That, in a nutshell, is why this program has been so effective for me in easing my anxiety problems – it was after all about ME.

And I know that “consistency” is a scary word – how many times have we started something and couldn’t follow through? But Sensa was different.

I tried and failed with the likes of Calm and Mind, but as I wasn’t given those gentle daily reminders, I found myself not participating fully.

Yes, I had my doubts – and have doubted myself. Who doesn’t? 

But there was always someone from Sensa to guide me – every day, every step of the way. I never once felt alone.

This is no magic cure…

Mental health is something that takes a lot of practice. They say a brick a day eventually can build a wall, so essentially I was chipping away at my problems bit by bit. 

This program helped me form long-lasting habits and I knew it’d be something I could continue for the rest of my life.

I found my anxiety a lot more manageable and it decreased over time.

As for results, I started seeing significant improvements just after a month.

Now after a year, I can truly say that this was a lot more effective than any other solution I tried to ease my constant anxiety. 

My only regret is not finding out about it sooner…

You can reclaim your peace and live anxiety-free, too.

If you’ve experienced anxiety first hand or if you can relate in any way to my own story, then I highly recommend that you take the Sensa quiz.

Find out what’s causing your anxiety, learn how to manage your symptoms exactly, and discover what you can do to make it right and finally get your life back on track. 

All you have to do is take a short, simple quiz and you too will receive your very own personalized plan.

There’s no commitment upfront. Worst case, you’ll learn some useful information about yourself and your anxiety triggers. You can just take that and leave.

But best case…

I promise you, your life will look a lot different from what it is right now. Free of worry. Free of panic. Free from that feeling of impending doom.

You can be in control. You can find that inner peace again. I did – and I’ve never looked back.

Words can’t describe how much Sensa has changed my life. And if it’s helped 96% of people like me, I know it can help you too – no matter if anxiety is something you struggle with for years or it has come up more recently.

I owed it to myself. You owe it to yourself. So what are you waiting for?
