Giovanni’s course has helped me with pain management, anxiety and depression. Now there is a sense of peace that follow me through the day.
I learned that I’m not my thoughts, but the observer of my thoughts. That positioned me in a place of power in relation to my thinking. Now I can have greater control over my mind and life.
I was feeling extremely unhappy and anxious. After taking LiveAndDare’s courses my sense of wellbeing increased, and stress levels went down. Giovanni’s teachings have literally changed my life, and in a short period of time.
Giovanni’s course gave me hope and inspiration while all I could feel was frustration and desperation. He gave me effective strategies that help me carry myself through the bullshit and towards my goals.
I’ve dealt with severe depression and anxiety. I tried therapy and medications but nothing worked like meditation. With LiveAndDare, I’ve found my path, and learned how to master my mind more efficiently.
Using the Mind Gym as metaphor, let's review some of the most common solutions people take to manage anxiety.
It takes no effort
It costs nothing (except more mind space)
You get nothing
Things tend to get worse over time
You can't enjoy your life fully
Your capacity for growth and for achieving your goals becomes limited.
It takes no effort
Can give immediate relief to anxiety symptoms
Doesn’t address the real problem. Just manages symptoms
Often includes side-effects such as: fatigue, drowsiness, dizziness, sexual dysfunction.
Dependency risk (each time needing higher doses)
Can be effective if you find the right therapist for you
Can take a lot of time to be effective (months/years)
Sometimes involves a lot of talking, but no practical tools to really overcome anxiety.
Can work well if you have great self-discipline
Provides no support and no accountability.
Involves a lot of trial and error before you find what works for you.
Most people give up after some time, before experiencing the real benefits.
