Mike Wilhelm, the founder and editor at Confidence Headquarters, a website that aims to help people tackle the root cause of negative mental states such as anxiety, shared the following post with Healthy Lombard:
In this post, I am going to give you the painstaking details on how I managed to reduce social anxiety and negative thoughts in a very short period of time.
As you might know, negative emotions such as shame and anxiety, and negative thoughts such as ‘’I’m not smart enough”, or “I’m not good-looking enough”, can have a significant impact on your life.
While the conventional tricks (such as exercising more, eating healthy and congratulating yourself on small achievements) can often provide some relief, it usually doesn’t tackle the problem at its root.
So what does? How did I manage to overcome the anxiety that had such a big impact on my life for such a long time?
Well… It’s called “The Television Technique”.
Practicing this technique almost guarantees that you’ll be able to liberate yourself from the negative thoughts and emotions that are the cause of your anxiety.

How I Used The Television Technique To Get Rid Of My Social Anxiety And Drastically Improve The Quality Of My Life
A few years ago I decided to completely devote myself to the television technique in order to put an end to needless suffering.
The technique instantly changed the way I viewed and interacted with the world that was unfolding around me. And let me tell you, it was more than necessary…
A few days after starting the television technique, I felt a lot more self-conscious and noticed a slight decrease in overall anxiety.
After about 2 weeks I noticed that my fear of interacting with strangers wasn’t nearly as intense as it once was and I was able to talk to people without me feeling like the most awkward creature on earth.
After 3 weeks, I often felt clarity and calmness in my mind. It was around this time that I could actually see other human beings as… well that… human beings.
Human beings with the same insecurities, flaws, and problems. Not some robots that were getting ready to judge me every chance they got.
After practicing the television technique for 1 full month, I felt as if I had become a whole new person. A better one.
I no longer struggled with fast heartbeats, fast breaths, tense muscles, dizziness, or a blank mind in social situations whenever I felt that a lot of attention was focused on me.
In addition, I started feeling spontaneous moments of joy and a significant increase in confidence.
