As I consider myself as mellow as a bottle of Beekeeper Zinfandel, I never thought anxiety would ever be a part of my life. Turns out, anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S., affecting 40 million adults or 18.1% of the population every year. In this two-part series, I open up and share my personal story about anxiety, and how I finally came to accept it and treat it. I also talk with Dr. Ronaye Calvert about the healthy way to look at anxiety (as opposed to the way I was looking at it). Of course, wine is the first defense against anxiety (in my house, anyway), so I crack open another bottle of the incredible 2015 Beekeeper Zinfandel from the Montecillo Vineyard in Sonoma.
