Befriend Your Anxiety

Sometimes we want to participate but we’re worried we might make a mistake. This is when anxiety arrives. Anxiety will help you prepare for action by being productive and planning ahead. Just scroll down to start your practice.

Your Wiggle Warrior® Practice:



First, shake or wiggle your whole body and oink like a pig.

(Really, try it!)


 Next, hop on one foot (or bounce your body) while naming 3 of your favorite things.


 Next, put yourself inside an invisible bubble of safety and extend your arms to the edges.


 Next, give yourself a BIG HUG.


 And then to finish, take 5 deep breaths to shrink your anxiety to the size of a jellybean.

(Turn on the sound and press play.)




Now ask yourself, “What am I worried about? Am I anxious that I might fail or make a mistake? Am I afraid to ask for help?”


It takes courage to try new things. And mistakes are part of learning.


Use the power of “Yet” to transform the worry of failing into the courage of trying: Say: “I can’t do this YET... I’m not good at this YET... I don’t understand this YET.” 


You can turn your anxiety into courage simply by trying.


All you have to do is to START.


You got this.
