Amir experiences anxiety most of the day. It seems like his brain is constantly overthinking everything. To make it worse, his heart is racing, his hands are shaking, and the room is spinning. Amir feels all tangled up inside. As he takes a walk and learns to count to three, Amir asks himself three simple questions to ease his mind: Is it solvable? Do I have the means to solve it? And when is the time right to tackle the worry? With each question, Amir becomes empowered to determine whether or not to let go of the worry or work through it to a resolution.
