Do you pressure yourself into doing it all — until the stress in your life reaches your ears?
Are you over-thinking and over-doing everything to manage your stress and anxiety?
If you’re like many women, the moment your overdoing doesn’t work, you turn to your Default Habits . . . .
These are Distraction Devils, strategies that keep you in Habit Hell!
If it’s not the entire box of Oreos, it could be reaching for the Xanax, pouring that extra glass of wine, or even attracting men who set off alarm bells!
Even hiding out in front of the TV or behind a book can be distraction strategies for coping with your stress.
While exercise, meditation or yoga can offer some relief, they don’t unwind your underlying issue, which is a self-pressured way that you engage with yourself!
It’s not too late to start managing the anxiety and overwhelm that winds you up, and even the depression that weighs you down.
It’s time to get out of Habit Hell!

"Waking up to our patterns can be key to changing the hold our habits have on us. Michael Anne Conley brings decades of experience to the area of habit change. She can help you tune into the subtle (and sometimes not so subtle) messages of the physical body to guide your healing process."
"Michael Anne turns the habit change process on its head! Resolving your resistive habits has never been more loving, kind and effective."
"It was so worth taking the time to practice letting go of tension and undo the stress. Very helpful for this “over-stimulated’ and overstressed mom!"
If you been trying to tame anxiety & overwhelm for years . . . and nothing you’ve done has worked for long . . . or at all . . .
It’s because your anxiety is only part of your problem, It’s also your Distraction Devils that have made things worse!
Do you end up telling yourself that THIS TIME, you’re going to do something different? And then you don’t give yourself credit where credit is due?
The Comparison Trap
Maybe you compare your insides with other people’s outsides. The Comparison Trap is Sallie’s pattern. “I am always picking somebody else to copy who I’m sure is doing better than me,” she says.
The Knowing Trap
Or maybe you’re like Marjorie, who’s stuck in The Knowing Trap.
She knows what the problem is, and all the life experiences that lead to this. But knowing hasn’t helped her find confidence in herself, peace of mind or just plain relief!
She’s stuck in her anxiety, and even though she knows what she “ought to do,” she believes, “I just lack self-discipline. That’s the one single thing — if only I disciplined myself, I would be able to stop being wound up and start doing what I ought to do without being worried or guilty.
If you’re like Sallie or Marjorie, you’ve been unable to get enough momentum to make the essential switch.
Whether your Default Habit is simply annoying (like chewing your fingernails), seriously life threatening (like alcohol, drug or nicotine use), or somewhere in between (if you’ve gotten caught in an endless cycle, this is probably blocking you from living your dreams in your personal life and in your career.
Wouldn’t you like to stop procrastinating about all this?
Aren’t you tired of putting so much time and energy into the needs of others but holding back on your own needs?
Isn’t it time to stop being so busy with the small stuff, and to start reaching for your visions, your passions and your true goals instead?
Start by saying “yes” to a Anxiety Relief Consultation with Michael Anne.
Imagine being able to develop a skill that stops these ways of thinking and feeling about yourself:
What’s wrong with me?
This happens when you put yourself down — like Sallie, who judges herself because she hasn’t been able to change her “bad” habit, which only keeps her stuck.
Trying to figure out what’s going on so you can get rid of the problem (like Marjorie stayed caught in “paralysis of analysis” until she learned how to stop spinning her wheels over and over and over again).
I can push through.
Trying something, anything different, is basically pushing yourself to change with the force of your will — on your own. This is not only isolating and exhausting, but only leads you back to putting yourself down.
If you’re like most women, you’ve tried these three common mistakes in dealing with your anxiety, and fallen into Habit Hell with your never-ending Distraction Habits. You might also think that if your attempts didn’t last — or work at all — that it’s something you did wrong!
There’s a new truth about anxiety, overwhelm, their Distraction Habits that keep you stuck and EVEN personal problems in general!
What I know is that a single call with me can create a shift for you, so you can start turning around whatever has been controlling you and creating unhappiness in your life.
How is that possible?
My name is Michael Anne Conley, and over the past 30+ years I’ve been assisting busy women (and some of their men, too) who are suffering from the self-defeating habits that only make their anxiety worse — (including trying to control other people over their anxiety, overwhelm and habit patterns, too).
I know you’ll get some peace and relief by saying “YES” to an Anxiety Relief consultation with me!
Consider being able to create a future that’s different from your past. Imagine what it will be like to:
Free yourself from that sense of powerlessness.
Release the blame and judgment you’ve had for so long!!
