#OwnYourAnxiety

Being ‘awake’ doesn’t mean that you are perfect or have all of the answers, it means that you are aware. When we own our anxiety we boldly walk the path of heightened awareness and we give thanks for it. #OwnYourAnxiety  

What are you guys reading right now?!

Winter Wellness Tip 14 is WRITE A LETTER! 📝⁣ .⁣ Writing letters to your loved ones- or even yourself- can increase your overall well-being, help you gain clarity about your emotional state, express love to others AND put into practice an underutilized skill! ⁣ .⁣ When was the last time you wrote someone a letter? Think about how great it feels to receive one and consider gifting that feeling to someone else. Or, if you are processing something that is hard for you, write a letter to yourself in the past, present or future and see if it helps you heal or identify some thoughts or feeling that you haven’t yet put yourself finger on. It can be very cathartic thing!⁣ .⁣ Have a wonderful rest of your Sunday’s and we’ll see you tomorrow for Tip 15- we’re halfway there! Team F&S🕊

How many times in life have we tried to fight what is, only to find ourselves anxious, upset and feeling helpless by a situation that we can’t even control? What’s the point? The true higher path is by optimizing, in other words, by making the most of, reality. A “bad day” won’t be as bad if you work to find some pleasurable moments in it. A curve ball, a break up, crappy weather, a bad investment, whatever! Stop fighting what’s happening or already happened ... that part is done, it happened. Do you know what didn’t happen yet though? How you will optimize the situation you find yourself in. And that is so empowering! Even in a health challenge there is always the opportunity to stop feeling sorry for ourselves and to instead find gratitude for what we do have. And btw, watch how you will begin to ownyouranxiety even more through this outlook. May we optimize reality and stop fighting it 💫 You with me?!

I decided to overnight a few copies of ‘Own Your Anxiety’ from Toronto to the Hamptons. I couldn’t wait till I get home to see it and it’s not on sale till Sept 17! So no copies of it in U.S. ... yet! Plus I’m hanging with some of my closest friends this weekend out East so wanted to share this milestone with them. I have to tell you guys, it really does look amazing. I’m so honored to call this my work and can’t wait to share it with all of you. Actually for anyone who wants an advanced PDF copy of it email me your full name with subject line ‘Ambassador’, I’d love to share it with y’all and have you help spread the word if it speaks to you. These are exciting times to say the least 💫🙏 Dreams do become reality. They really do. OwnYourAnxiety Love and thanks to: @JoeMimran @ElenaBrower @bombas @daveheath @[email protected] @jessicamulroney And so many more people who endorsed the book which I‘ll be sharing with you guys soon! 67 days ...

A key part of the Own Your Anxiety lifestyle is to take time to recharge and recenter. And to do this when you feel the call, long before you crash, requires a heightened awareness of one’s self. May we all be in a constant evolution of self-understanding and self-discovery. Honestly the last few weeks I have been grinding non-stop. Speaking events, book going to print, press and media invites, teaching yoga and meditation, 1-1 work, travel, launching the Own Your Anxiety Ambassadors and being a present family member and friend has left me conscious that it’s a healthy time for me to get out of town and relax. I’m taking a few days off to hang with some of my closest friends (and this sweet unicorn) this weekend out East. Remember that if you can’t get away for the weekend and even if you don’t have someone to hang with, you always, always, always have an abundance of options at your finger tips that will recenter you and make you feel 👌. Plus YOU ARE ENOUGH. How are you recharging this weekend? Comment below, and use the OwnYourAnxiety hashtag so you can share your way with our amazing community right here on IG. We’d all love to know!!! I sure would 🙌 Whatever it is, enjoy! 📸@jslotnick

Some days are not easy. Some days I don't feel like do anything. Some days doubt and anxiety consume me. But that's life, isn't it? The experience of coach summit has been UNREAL. ✨I have already learned so much and still have the rest of the weekend to soak up all the knowledge I can. I was ridden with anxiety prior to this trip. Was my team going to like me? Was I going to like them? Will I be judged by other coaches? Was I WORTHY? But you guys! Every time I step out of my comfort zone with this company, I never regret it! 💖The community of women (and men) is so amazing and supportive. If you're interested in hearing more about the coaching opportunity or about joining in our workouts + nutrition programs, then PLEASE do not hesitate to ask! 🙋🏽‍♀️ I plan to start a coach sneak peek soon so that you can follow along with the ins/outs of what I do. So stay tuned!🤓

When your books FINALLY arrive in Toronto 🕺 and you’re in NYC to see some of your best friends 🤷‍♂️ At least my Father was there to receive them. I can tell from this video how much it meant to him. That means a lot to me. I’m in another country watching this video ... it’s pretty surreal. I can’t wait for you guys to have your copy. Apparently it looks amazing. Make sure to private message me your name, email address, and city/ country if you want to hear about when it’s on sale FIRST 💙😉 #OwnYourAnxiety

A powerful Reiki session this morning. It is so wonderful to see how far this young man has come and with so many exciting times ahead! Today I used a visualisation that incorporated his love of football to take him to a deeper level of relaxation - which he certainly reached!! Reiki is a wonderful energy that can be used for so many conditions, as well as just wanting a hour or so of pure relaxation. Sometimes we just need to have faith in the unexplained. Take a step into the unknown and experience a sense of calm and relaxation like nothing you have had before. Being able to cope with situations, react in a more positive way. Finding the confidence to do things that previously freaked you out. There are so many wonderful benefits with Reiki and they all come from within you. Reiki works with you, encouraging you to heal from within💞 #Reikiclients   #selfhealing   #mentalhealthcanaffectanyone   #selfcaretoolkit   #ThursdayReikiDay   #Imarareiki   #KarunaKireiki   #Kundalinireiki   #visualisations   #positiveanxiety   #ownyouranxiety  

Did you know that good fats like Avocado and flowering plants like ginger (and turmeric) have been proven in multiple studies to reduce anxiety and stress? This face is what happens when I add extra ginger, hold the banana and add avocado to @kupfertkim ‘s/ @hello123forever ‘s “Green Smoothie” and it becomes a delish masterpiece in a glass. Next time you think that afternoon coffee is essential try a shot of ginger. And if you’re feeling anxious treat yourself to half an avocado, eat it straight out of the shell with a spoon. It may be just what your body actually wants. This is one of my personal fave ‘ OwnYourAnxiety’ hacks. What are yours?

When anxiety says “HI!” it is saying hi for an honest reason. What it’s trying to tell us is the best advice we could ever seek to find. Your anxiety may be saying to you that it’s time to slow down or that it is time to speed up and do more. Maybe it’s telling you that someone you are hanging out with is not who you should be spending your precious time with. Your anxiety could be telling you that it’s time to make a profound change or that everything is just the way it’s supposed to be, to accept this incredible realization and not change anything - how beautiful is that? Maybe it’s saying that your job or what you’re studying isn’t what’s right for you. It could be saying that it’s time to break start your own business or begin a brand new career path. Often anxiety speaks up when it’s time to stop putting certain things into our sacred bodies; other times when we need to start putting certain things into our sacred bodies. When we start to become eager explorers of what our anxiety is trying to tell us we start to create the beginning of a beautifully communicative, cohesive and continuous journey of self involvement, self-love and self-empowerment all of which can profoundly enhance our beautiful lives. This is how you begin the path. This is how to own your anxiety.

When you go and visit the President of Michael Kors Canada and she printed off your book and LOVES it. Words don’t describe how exciting this was for me. Total surprise!! All I can say is that if it provided major value to a powerful and exceptionally successful businesswoman it’s going to help a heck of a lot more people too. 73 Days to go ... Seriously 💙 you guys 🤗 #OwnYourAnxiety  

You are. I see you 💫💙

I just wrote a personal essay for NBC, just before you read it, read this my friends: In 2008 I thought anxiety was my weakness. I thought I was alone. I thought the only way to turn off the, at the time, frightening and foreign feelings was by running from them any way that I could. Certainly not by being open about them. I shifted that conversation though. Years ago. And for years I have literally loved my anxiety. I cherish it, you guys. I have such an honest, open relationship with it. It keeps me on track. On my path. When I’m not being my real-self, my all-knowing self, my best self ... it speaks up loudly and I listen. Then I’m back where I’m supposed to be. Where the Universe wants me to be. Where deep, deep down I want ... hey, I NEED to be. And if you don’t already have this relationship with your anxiety I want you to know that YOU CAN. It CAN become YOUR SECRET EDGE. As you guys already know my purpose is to teach you how. That’s why I wrote ‘Own Your Anxiety’ a book on this. NOW CHECK THIS OUT: the other day I had an opportunity to write about my journey for NBC News. It’s super open and honest. It speaks about anxiety and the Millennial Culture. It’s real. My intention for writing this piece, just like my book is to truly help anyone who uses the words “anxiety” and “suffer” in the same sentence realize that they don’t belong together! All of you who’ve taken my online classes and in person workshops know that I believe those two words do not belong in the same sentence. Never. And here’s why... read more in my story on NBC the link is on my bio now. The journey continues everyone! I’m here for you and I am so grateful that you’re all here with me supporting. 71 days until the book launches ...

When you start treating your lifestyle like your job your entire life gets better and your anxiety will be owned ... by YOU! Love to @saana_yoga @darcyhagerman and @jessgo333 #OwnYourAnxiety  

In a couple of weeks I’ll be teaching two ‘Own Your Anxiety’ workshops (July 19 & 20) inside the sage forests of Huntsville, Ontario at the @MuskokaYogaFestival The first, on Friday July 19 (1-5pm) is a special extended 4 hour workshop where we will dive in very, very deep together. It will combine science from the West and Holistic Healing Philosophy from the East. It will take you inside my upcoming book ‘Own Your Anxiety’ and forever change how you’re living with anxiety. In these four hours you will see a true transformation in your relationship with anxiety and how you approach your entire life - it’s powerful stuff. I rarely offer extended workshops like this. The URL for is in my bio! Saturday morning July 20, I will be leading another workshop that will be for a shorter amount of time yet also very powerful, inspiring, and thought enhancing. You deserve to change your relationship with anxiety forever. And to thrive with it. I’ll be teaching you how to. This festival offers so much- yoga, being in nature, meditation, music, running, sound healing, and most of all AMAZING HUMANS all coming to grow and connect. It brings together some of the best instructors in a serene setting. I’m so excited to get out to the country and connect with all of you and the lush Canadian elements. Treat yourself to the entire weekend or just come up for my workshop- you choose! More info: MuskokaYogaFestival.com and for my special extended workshop by tapping the link in my bio. See you soon 💫

Just wanted to remind you ☀️

Don’t be a victim to the system. If it’s not working for you maybe it’s time for an alternative path. Either way, just do you and nobody else. Be ok with being different! No anxiety about being YOUnique only peace and passion for what you’re creating. Do you with honest and righteous values. Do you with integrity. Do you with passion. Do you with pride. Do you with compassion for those who are trying to do them but maybe haven’t found their authentic way like you have yet. Do you with love. I got crazy, awesome, mad love for all of you. #OwnYourAnxiety  

Anxiety was my invitation for alignment. Yoga is one of the ways that I align myself back to the true essence of what I am and what I value. What’s yours? 74 days!!! OwnYourAnxiety 📸@alive_experience

I’m telling you, slow down and you’ll get so much more 🤗

2 videos —> Who’s up for the LOVE Challenge lol? Seriously, watch these videos and try sending love to everyone who cross’s your life path today. Let me know what happens! You up for it?

Absolutely love this from @julianbrass! Anxiety, depression or any other mental illness is not a weakness. . . When I developed sepsis there was no question of me getting immediate medical attention. No one has called me weak for needing a long break from work and training. Everyone has been so supportive because my body was broken and needed help. Would I have got the same response if my brain was broken? 🤷🏻‍♀️ . . Mental illnesses are invisible. Sepsis is invisible. Both can be incredibly debilitating. So why treat mental illness differently to sepsis? Why wait to get help with one and rush to help with another. Both can be fatal. . . If you are struggling mentally or physically go and get help. Talk to someone you trust. Talk to anyone and everyone. The more we talk the more we normalise conditions that affect so many of us. It's good to talk! . . #pocketrocket   #smallbutmighty🧚🏻‍♀️   #crossfit   #crossfitgirls   #crossfitathlete   #recovery   #sepsis   #sepsisawareness   #sepsissurvivor   #sepsisrecovery   #bodypositive   #bodyconfident   #thickthighssavelives   #mentalhealth   #mentalwellness   #mentalillness   #beatthestigma   #ownyouranxiety   #bedefiant   #bedefiantclothingco   #wearebedefiant

It starts with you and me, with US. We can then teach our future generations how to thrive in life with various mental health challenges and the inevitable setbacks that life will throw at us. I will know my work is done when the coach of a little league baseball team in the middle of a small town somewhere has their team of young ones pause to meditate and visualize before the game. And when management in corporate America/ Canada/ UK/ Australia/ THE WORLD decides to pause for 3 minutes and guide their team of execs through a breathing sequence, I will spend that extra 30 minutes on my yoga mat, knowing my work is done. Until then ... I will keep channeling my anxiety to become my edge as I create for our beautiful world. HBU? #OwnYourAnxiety  

Anxiety Advocates! THIS is the cover of my new book! OUR BOOK. My intention with this book is that it will provide the needed inspiration, tools, and roadmap to forever change the way people all over the world live with Anxiety. My obsession with this topic happened when I took pen to paper 2 years ago after selling my old business, which I founded and was the CEO of for 9 years. It was in this journey that I got anxiety for the first time, and it was in this journey that after 2 exceptionally scary and lonely years where I felt that I couldn't disclose my anxiety with anyone, that I also learned how to OWN MY ANXIETY. The desire to share the tools which empowered me to shift my anxiety into my secret edge during my journey of self-finding and self-reliance became not just a desire or an idea but an absolute MUST. I believe that each of us has a responsibility to make this world a better place so it was in my realization that I had uncovered a secret to shifting how we can live with anxiety that the responsibility and commitment to serve began. My goal with this book is that you eventually like living with anxiety. You read that right. I want to introduce you to a new way of living with anxiety. A way that is full of self-love AND strength. Self-worth AND purpose. Self-finding AND arriving in your power. It is here that you create a new relationship with your anxiety ... a relationship that you LIKE. Own Your Anxiety is coming out internationally Fall of 2019 ... literally just around the corner. It's an honor to be the messenger of this needed message. If you want to know how to get your copy first join my email - it's up on my bio right now and my site Julianbrass.com We are in this together. So I f you know someone who’s also in this with us, make sure they see this post and join OUR movement of living an empowered life with anxiety. Deep gratitude to the best selling authors, world-class doctors, healers, business execs, professional athletes, style icons, fitness guru’s and influencers who endorsed this book. Your support means so much. I give gratitude daily for my anxiety. You can too. Soon you will 💙 It’s your secret edge. #OwnYourAnxiety

Tell the Universe what you want. It will receive your message. I used to pray that I would be able to help people all over the world with my message of healing. In 77 days my book will be out. I’m the same person who was told I had a “learning disability in English and math” my entire adolescent life. But I prayed. And than I aligned my actions to my prayers. Where do you want to go? The power of prayer can take you there. 💙🙏🙌

Good Morning 💫🙏

When I learned how to channel my anxiety from negative to positive my entire life changed positively. It’s so obvious, yet instead of investigating the cause of this negative, fight or flight prompting energy, so often we just try and survive. We just try to get by or get through life. Instead of asking why is this coming on? We learn to survive suffering with anxious and stressed out feelings (almost) all the time. I’m going to change that. NO. WE are going to change that! I see you out there... 🤗 83 days ... #OwnYourAnxiety  

I’ve met too many people riddled with anxiety because they know they’re living someone else’s values. You have one life to live. Don’t be ashamed to live it how you truly want it to be lived. Shame-induced Anxiety is a real thing. Don’t let it be your thing. — 84 days till my book ‘Own Your Anxiety’ launches ... 💙 y’all #OwnYourAnxiety  

We must stop restricting the energy of anxiety so that it doesn’t build up and eventually erupt. Incorporating various natural ways of release will do huge, miracle-filled wonders when anxiety shows up in your life. Think: daily releasing and open conversations, regular exercise, consistent meditation, nose to belly breathing techniques, living in a yogic state of mind, getting out in nature, gratitude practices, connecting with your whole food... and more. You want to live here. I want you to live here. Here is where you Own Your Anxiety. 84 days till book launch ... holy s**t!

Wait till the end ... trust me! 85 days ... OwnYourAnxiety You’re a part of this journey too and it feels so good to have you by my side.

Let yourself get lost. Intentionally take yourself some place that you will feel a bit lost. Somewhere beautiful. When we let ourselves physically explore, mentally and spiritually we also open up new space to explore within. Take yourself in to this journey. It might be a few minutes, hours, even days ... sometimes it can be months or years. Whatever it is, make sure that it happens. I think you may find radical self-love, deep appreciation for nature, and gratitude for your life. In this clear state it is much harder for debilitating anxiety to live. Go in.

Why is it that mental health has such a negative stigma attached to it? Does diabetes? Or high blood pressure? Or thyroid disease? NO! Anxiety is a real thing and we NEED to talk about it! Those that suffer with mental illness such as anxiety put on a smile and go about their day. And most of the time they are ok. But sometimes, they aren’t. Hopefully you have tools to manage it. A great support system. Breathing. Meditation. Your tribe. All of it. But if you don’t - there’s still help! “When you don’t feel strong enough to stand, reach out your hand 🖐 “ . . . #anxietysucks   #ownyouranxiety   #letstalkaboutit   #endthestigma   #putonasmile   #livekyndly   #selfworth   #youmatter   #sparkkindness   #helpinghand   #lovewins  

Healing vibes to all 💫

This is NOT a paid/sponsored post, I promise. I finally got myself a Wrangler. I've wavered around getting this car for the past 5 years. For a variety of reasons though, I never got it. Instead I bought more expensive cars that I thought I needed to drive to be perceived as a certain type of "successful" businessman. You ever do something like that before? You know, think you needed to be a certain way? I hope these words remind you to free yourself of that anxiety and lean in to the real YOU. As I've grown older an increasing embodiment of who this human named 'Julian' truly is continues to become my reality. I walk (well, and now drive again) in my authentic, purest, version of myself ... daily. I continue to journey deep into elements of my purest self in order to unlock my abundance in profound ways that I would have laughed off as too "woo woo" years ago. A desire to grow and find deeper meaning that is beyond numbers in bank accounts, work orders, and investments is what lead me here. Now check THIS out... Cuz literally I am laughing in amazement for our Universe upon realizing that today, June 21st, is International Day of Yoga and it is the same day that I finally bought myself the car that my most authentic self has been drawn to for so many years. Not planned. Just another gentle affirmation that there are no coincidences in life. By the way, embracing what Yoga (which means 'Union') is, has fully lit up my elevated life path regardless of temptations to deviate off-road. Also definitely not planned ... I found yoga because I had a crush on someone and she invited me to join her at a class in 2008. I invite you to ask yourself these questions: WHO are you holding yourself back from being? WHAT needs to happen for this holding back to end? HOW will you break the hold? Have a great weekend, IG Fam. These words are fully for you. Have a peaceful and happy Pride, all who are celebrating. Go in. To my Yogi's out there all over the world ... Happy International Day of Yoga!!! And to all: let this post serve as yet another reminder to be your real, awesome, authentic self 💙💙💙 cuz that’s what our world needs.

Our brains need breaks too. 💫 Breathe intentionally. Breathe fully. Breathe in life. Breathe in you.

So. Many. Emotions. Happening right now. I’ve not been able to do any sort of physical exercise- most notably yoga- for just over a week now and man is it taking its toll on my mental stability!! Why is it that mental health has such a negative stigma attached to it? Does diabetes? Or high blood pressure? Or thyroid disease? NO! Anxiety is a real thing and we NEED to talk about it. We need a better health care system that can adequately address it. And most importantly we need to not be ashamed of it!!! We need to not judge it!!! Those that suffer with mental illness such as anxiety put on a smile and go about their day. And most of the time we are ok. But then we are not. And we can’t explain it. But hopefully we have tools to manage it. Which thankfully I do. A great support system. Breathing. Meditation. Friends. My tribe. All of it. But can we freaking kill the stigma and have a conversation. THAT is my goal. Yoga saved my life. And in a few weeks...I can get back to yoga lol. In the meantime I rant on IG and just fucking breathe. . . . #anxietysucks   #ownyouranxiety   #letstalkaboutit   #endthestigma   #yogasavedmylife   #putonasmile   #fakeittilyoumakeit   #mysmileisfuckingamazing  

What’s your place of healing, growing, and disconnecting? Is it a church, a mosque, a synagogue, a temple, a gym, a kitchen, a yoga studio? While I have a few, this yoga studio has been one of mine for years. I’ll be hosting my Own Your Anxiety + Yoga workshop here at Downward Dog this coming Sunday and it couldn’t be a bigger honor. I firmly believe that we are all students and teachers at different moments, chapters, and times in our lives. And while I have done some of my deepest training here at @downwarddogyoga on yogic philosophy, anatomy, and yoga asana, on Sunday I have the privilege to teach. I’m so excited by how many of my peeps here in Toronto are hungry to grow, flow and Own Your Anxiety with me ... and can’t believe that we are almost at capacity... I’m beyond inspired by you! If you want to come learn and go deep into your mind, body, and soul please hit the link in my bio and register before we close registration. AND if you’re in another location (which I know many of you are) comment below with where you are based so that my team and I can make sure to give your city some 💙 too- we’ll try and plan a workshop or seminar near you soon!

My least fav color in the world is.... Pink yuck yuck yuck.

True story- yesterday there was way to much caffeine in my body given the commitments I had to keep up with. My ‘in the zone’ energy quickly shifted to a form of debilitating anxiety and instead of letting it own me I took charged and owned it. It literally took less than 5 minutes guys! How empowering? The rest of the day was fantastic- great meeting, got some sweet creating (work) done, awesome yoga practice, a date, a concert and a sound sleep. All because I let what my body was telling me cue a need to shift my state. We hold the keys to what we need most. Don’t forget. If you know someone who would benefit from this grounding strategy please make sure they see this. That is how we make positive change. 💙

FOOD Allergy Sufferers this is for you: Last week something really big happened in my life. I found the most delicious pizza that I could actually eat. Oh, and if you didn’t know the Toronto Raptors became the world champs!!! LOL but seriously, I’m pretty intolerant of lactose. It’s been a challenge for more than half my life. When I was younger it was hell on earth because I didn’t know what was happening and the lactose pills only worked some of the time. So after years of being totally hit hard by scary levels of indigestion, I just gave up all products that had lactose. — Own Your Anxiety tip: listen to your body! Don’t fight or resist what it’s telling you, if it rejects what you’re putting in it you gotta listen, there’s a reason. So much is caused by food choices and gut health. Please be intentional and mindful. — But the other day while watching the game I discovered something that will forever change my pizza experience... vegan pizza made from coconut-based cheese. Words won’t express how good this was. So let’s let my face on these pics do the talking (especially pic 4). What is your fave allergy-friendly food and where do you go for it? Tag them below, I’m super curious! Thx @bigtroublepizza I will be back soon, possibly this weekend 😛

It’s you’re right to authentically know. #ownyouranxiety  

We can’t choose what’s going to happen in our lives. We can’t choose how we’re going to naturally feel at any given moment. All that we can control, however, is how we will show up for all of it. Having my tools that I practice and practice and practice empowers me to show up really damn well about 99% of the time. I use the practice of giving gratitude, reading positive books, writing, daily yoga practice, keeping my use of social media very mindful and to no more than about 30 minutes a day, exercise, responding to messages and email in increments not like a robot lol, positive music, affirmations, a consistent sleep regiment, minimizing processed food, and a few other things to keep me on the right track. HBU guys? —— PS... holy smokes ... 91 days till Own Your Anxiety comes out 😍

What is one thing you can do to make tomorrow better than today? Comment below! 92 days until book launch!!

Let’s talk anxiety. It is awful. It can be debilitating. It can ruin relationships. It can prevent you from being who you were meant to be in the world and from being your best self. But it can also be balanced. It can also be managed with the right tools. Anxiety has no rhyme or reason. It can show up completely unexpected and can be completely unreasonable and unexplainable. I found myself in my very first yoga class about 7 years ago because of anxiety, which ended up being one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Yoga has forever changed my life. Much of my anxiety is related to shit that has happened to me in the past. Shit that I had no control of and shit I can’t change. Today I choose to “Free yourself from your past. Lean in to what can be.” @julianbrass So here I am. Balancing life with anxiety and leaning in to what can be! . . . #anxietysucks   #ownyouranxiety   #balance   #letgo   #freeyourself   #bestself   #freedomawaits   #personalgrowth   #yoga   #yogachangedmylife   #futurepossibilities

This is a wild, outlandish, and alternative idea that isn’t for everyone. Maybe it is for you though. Maybe this idea can make a massive change in your personal journey through anxiety. Maybe, just maybe, there’s even a tiny little nugget here that might be valuable. Maybe it’s more than a nugget. I personally believe it to be. It sure has been for me. Try to see if there is an opportunity for you to tell yourself ‘I’m so EXCITED’ rather than ‘anxious’ next time something that creates anxious feelings enters your being. See what happens... I am not saying this will answer all of your challenges but I am saying that it might help you walk on the journey toward greater self-discovery which, to a significant degree, is made up of the thoughts we allow ourselves to have. Hope this helps! Go Raps 🤗 * Note: this video was supposed to go live two days ago, before the big game, but just uploaded now... IGTV? Anyways, I’m leaving this up because the idea has no time expiration it’s always possible

2 days ago in my last video, I invited all of you amazing humans to join me for a 99 Day Challenge leading up to my book launch (Sept 17)! Why 99 days? Well that’s because ‘Own Your Anxiety’ has 99 simple tips in it - all validated by extensive research from Western Medicine and Eastern Wisdom. The book is written in a super easy to understand way. So this challenge idea came to me, and I thought why not invite you guys to start doing or stopping 1 thing that will help you further your journey toward owning YOUR anxiety. Right? Right! I’m going to personally help everyone who accepts the challenge meet their goal. Seriously. Then I thought deeper about how I’d partake as well, not just as your coach and teacher but as an active participant. I though what is MY challenge that I will take on? This came to me last night ... I want to give more to the Universe. I know I can. I’ve dedicated over two years of diving deep into the creation of my book, speaking and coaching all with the intention of helping people learn to own their anxiety and lives overall. And I want to give more. So what I’m offering is 1 free online coaching call EVERY DAY FOR 99 DAYS. I’m serious... If you want to join me for one of these calls all you need to do is comment below and then message me your full name and email and we will set it up. I will be randomly selecting 99 names from the below. Let’s do this... I’m here to serve and help you be your best. 💙 #OwnYourAnxiety

In 99 days my book ‘Own Your Anxiety’ will be released internationally! This book, which really is more of a movement than words on paper, is all about shifting both the conversation around anxiety and the energy that is anxiety. I pray that the universal message contained within inspires and empowers all of you and the world to embark on a path of self-discovery that leads to channeling the negative feelings of anxiety into positive, dynamic energy and that this journey leads to an even better, more evolved, you. ‘Own Your Anxiety’ has 99 medically validated and research backed ways to begin your journey. Why 99? Well since we are all different and unique you deserve to have equally unique options available to you on your journey- what one person wants to do another may not - and that’s cool! And what works for one may not work for another. So I’ve of created, researched, tried, and validated 99 super accessible ways to own your anxiety in this work. Each day from now till launch I will be sharing 1 of the 99 ways with you. I’m so grateful to begin sharing these tools with you as we near the launch 🚀! 1 is Breathe - breathing for anxiety is all about “NTB” Nose-to-Belly breathing. Inhale through your nose and let your belly expand for 4 seconds. Pause for 2. Exhale through your nose for 4. This is how you breathe to Own Your Anxiety. How do you guys like to breath? Let’s get conscious of how we breathe so that we get more and more conscious of how we live our amazing lives. Another tip to own anxiety coming tomorrow. In the meantime please try breathing like this and LMK what you think! Here we go y’all. We got this and and are ready for the journey to begin. We’re not is together. Love you guys, Julian OwnYourAnxiety Ps- go Raptors!

Be You. Be one. Don’t try to fit in. If you’re not following @julianbrass you’re missing out on some wonderful daily mantras 🙏 #ownyouranxiety   #mentalhealthawareness   #copingskills   #wordsarefoodforyoursoul   #healthymind   #takebackcontrol   #resiliency   #wxourstorms  

So much self-shaming, negative self-talk and ultimately shame-induced anxiety originated by being someone we don’t want to be and continues by doing things that we know we don’t want to be doing; things that our truest self is better than. Be one with your truest self and you will be one with the Universe. Ultimately you will feel oneness. Nothing is greater.
