Publisher's Summary

Your life is filled with worry? You’re having a hard time managing anxiety? You’d like to overcome your negative thoughts?

The human brain is a special weapon. It checks for threats and it sends an instant alert if necessary. This alarm is known as fear. Chronic anxiety comes from fear! The problem comes when your anxiety becomes a persistent struggle that never disappears. Having such a condition negatively affects the quality of your life.

Chronic anxiety is one of the main mental health problems that haunts most individuals in modern society.

More and more people are becoming aware of their mental condition and seeking professional help. Fortunately, as far as mental health is concerned, there is increasingly significant progress in terms of diagnosis and treatment of various mental disorders.

This book focuses on the topic of chronic anxiety, trying to understand its genesis, its effects on patients, and how it can be managed.

If left untreated, chronic anxiety can have adverse effects that can easily complicate the patient's life and make it difficult to exist in society.

Overcoming chronic anxiety is not the most difficult task on this planet, but it is also not the easiest. Success largely depends on the chosen treatment method (medication, therapy, natural remedies) or the combination of multiple treatments.

You will learn:

  • the causes of chronic anxiety
  • how to recognize the symptoms
  • the effects of anxiety on our body
  • how to change and improve your lifestyle to overcome anxiety
  • how to prevent and deal with panic attacks
  • different methods through which anxiety can be managed and overcome
  • natural remedies that help heal chronic anxiety

Loved it

When feeling anxious, do you typically:
1) Become so consumed with how anxious you feel and then harshly judge yourself for doing so?
2) Do whatever you can to escape feeling the anxiety?
3) Try to avoid whatever triggers the anxiety?

If so, this book will likely change your world--from the inside out. It's not about changing your anxiety, but about changing the relationship you have with your internal experience of anxiety and the associated uncomfortable emotions. And, the first step to changing this relationship is to understand these truths that the authors have discovered from years of research and their own clinical and personal experiences:
--Anxiety is universal, adaptive, and functional
--Anxious thoughts and associated emotions do not necessarily your control behavior
--Trying to control (or avoid) your anxiety typically causes more distress!!

So, if you're tired of being a prisoner of your anxiety, here is your chance to break free. Imagine being able to make choices based on wants instead of fears! And, after reading this book, you'll be able to transform that fantasy into reality.

Fresh take on mindfulness

I have read lots of books on mindfulness. Most of them are based on the idea of being aware of our moment to moment experiences but this book develops the idea that anxiety narrows our attention and therefore limits our awareness of our choices in the moment. I find this idea to be a fresh take on anxiety. Further the style of thinking is very reflective of the extensive research the authors have done in this field. This is the best book on this topic.

Chronic Anxiety

Once you've grasped these truths, you'll be ready to start embracing the concept of mindfulness. In contrast to anxiety which narrows attention and focuses on threats, mindfulness expands our attention and helps us more fully engage in our lives. As the authors explain, the goal of mindfulness is "to change the relationship you have with your thoughts and feelings, to bring some curiosity and compassion to the responses you have, to learn to tune in to your emotions and understand how they pull you to respond in certain ways, and to being some flexibility and choice to the actions you have."

The practice of mindfulness revolves around the three steps of observation, curiosity, and self-compassion, and ultimately allows you to: increase your present-moment focus and clarify your awareness; turn towards your emotions (instead of running from them or trying to control them); and make valued choices to help you live a full meaningful life.

Wonderful intro to Mindfulness!

I really found this book to be a great introduction to mindfulness; mindfulness was something I had heard of but never considered as a way to deal with anxiety. I always assumed it was better suited for depression or for just calming your mind "quickly" in general, but not long term. I was pleasingly wrong:)

Sound, practical advice

I am not a professional reviewer nor am I concerned much with theories of psychology. I care mostly what works for average folks and without a doubt this book has solid, direct advice and methods for reducing your anxiety. The authors have an ability to connect with the reader and present the material in a way that boils down complex theories into something usable.

A Great Resource for Anyone Who Struggles with Anx

Most of us suffer from anxiety to some degree. We instinctively try to wish it away, avoid it, or fight it head-on -- strategies which only make matters worse. The practice of turning safely and compassionately toward one's own fears is at first confusing, but ultimately profoundly liberating. They describe this paradoxical process very simply and clearly, in a way anyone can use. As a clinical psychologist who works extensively with anxiety problems, I recommend this book enthusiastically. Readers can also visit the authors' website for their excellent, free, meditation downloads: [...]

Thinking !!

I actually didn't "get" this book the first time I read it. I didn't start meditating like they suggest, and was just looking for some quick tips to help me through a rough time. It didn't help. I returned to it a few months later when I hit another rough patch, and started meditating every day like the book recommends. I was surprised at the result. Practicing meditation and mindfulness did not give me some sort of new calm outlook on life, as I expected, but it did give me a better understanding of how and why my anxious thoughts kept surfacing. The book also provides good visualizations and other exercises to help me better manage my anxiety when it occurs. Most importantly, it has taught me how to catch my thoughts starting down the path of worries, and redirect myself in a helpful way.
I loved this read !

Excellent book for anxiety sufferers.

I almost want to call this book "life changing" because it kind of was for me. Am I cured of my anxiety? Absolutely not. But it is far easier to manage my anxious thoughts now.

If you are struggling with anxiety please buy this book and start doing the mindfulness exercises!

The best tool I ever used in managing my anxiety

I recommend and gift this book to anyone who says they are struggling with anxiety, or who are even occasionally anxious. It examines the nature of anxiety, explaining how worrying is in fact impairing your ability to fully engage with the present moment. The book teaches you how to reconnect with the present moment through mindfulness practice. It also offers helpful tools for dealing with troubling emotions and helps you identify anxiety-driven assumptions that fuel negative reactions to other people, life challenges, etc.

This book helped me!

This book helped me through the stress of graduate school and some major life transitions. If you are in a mindfulness group or even practicing alone with recordings, this book goes well beyond the meditations you’ll do; it’s a wonderful complement to mindfulness meditation in my opinion. It also helps ypu learn to view your anxiety objectively, which is a critical step in reducing its power and intensity.

recommend !

This is a wonderful book!! I have GAD (Generalized Anxiety Disorder) that my doctor has treated with diazepam (5mg twice a day) for over 10 years. I recently decided that I want to very gradually reduce (staying at 90 days with each reduction) the dose until I'm no longer taking the medication. I've been practicing mindfulness, for only about 12 minutes a day, for a couple of years which has helped a lot. This book was suggested reading in one of my other mindfulness books.

This is a wonderful book!

It's been very helpful in my slow withdrawal. This book is also an introduction to mindfulness practice so the purchase of other books first isn't necessary.

I Love This Book

I love this book. I'm also going to buy the companion workbook. I've been try to live more mindfully anyway but this book helps keep it in perspective with my anxiety issues. And I can use more targeted practice when dealing with anxiety. There are exercises throughout the book. You can go at your own pace. And the exercises build on each other as you get more proficient though you're not limited to doing the book in order.

I'm now a bit more than six months out from the loss and I feel like it's helped me to find the gift in all of this and become more resilient. This is a really helpful book that I now recommend to anyone who's struggling through a loss.
