The Spotlight Effect Increases Your Anxiety – Karen Leslie
Have you heard of the Spotlight Effect in mental health conversations? Specifically, how the spotlight effect can increase anxiety; especially social anxiety? This seems to be more of a private conversation and Karen believes it needs to have a greater presence in the overall mental health conversation.
The spotlight effect can impact every area of your life; relationships, business, family, intimacy, even your dreams and desires for the future.
Stress Recovery Expert Karen Leslie, will be highlighting what the spotlight effect is, how it has impacted her life and what it is that people can do to come out of the ‘spotlight’ and begin to enjoy their social interactions more.
Join Karen for this week’s episode of Cultivating Kindness With Karen to see if you struggle with the spotlight effect and how to step out of this belief (yes it is a belief) to help heal your anxiety and step into greater ease in your life.

~ More About Cultivating Kindness With Karen ~
Karen Leslie is an Educator and an Expert Healer who has been facilitating energy with others for over 25 years. Her life of depression, anxiety and suicidal thoughts has led her on an interesting, and at times, turbulent path to where she is today.
Kindness was definitely missing in Karen’s life. Karen was always kind and compassionate to others, however she was not showing kindness to herself. Today Karen knows that kindness towards others was actually a way of avoiding her own wounds and sadness. These choices created a life of ‘people pleasing’, keeping the peace and avoiding conflict; especially if it involved having to say “No” to someone else.
Karen knows now that everything we do to help ourselves from the neck up will help everything from the neck down. Karen now lives each day with enthusiasm, excitement, an openness to new adventures and a great deal of kindness towards everyone, most especially herself.
