Anxiety is a common condition that affects people of all ages, but it can be especially challenging for boomers. As we age, we face a number of stressors, such as retirement, health problems, and the loss of loved ones. These stressors can lead to anxiety, making it difficult to enjoy life and live to our full potential.
If you are a boomer and you are struggling with anxiety, it is important to know that you are not alone. There are many things you can do to manage your anxiety, including seeking professional help. But one of the most important things you can do is to trust in God.

When we trust in God, we can be sure that He will help us through our anxiety and give us the strength to cope.
