Just in time for a very hectic and often stressful (and, for some people, even depressing) time of year, Beverly D. Flaxington, The Human Behavior Coach™, joined us to discuss her new book, “Self-Talk for a Calmer You” and how people can use positive self-talk to control anxiety and live a happier, more relaxed life.  It was a great discussion and Beverly gave some practical tips, including 3 steps to turn around anxiety-producing thoughts and immediately calm yourself.
