Freeing Yourself from Anxiety: The 4-Step Plan to Overcome Worry and Create the Life You Want Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Is worry wearing you out? Whether it's losing sleep over a deadline, fretting about a relationship, or constantly thinking about what you "should have" done or said, anxiety makes life feel like a race from one overwhelming situation to the next.

Freeing Yourself from Anxiety reveals the real secret to reducing stress: not positive thinking, but possible thinking. In this breakthrough guide, Dr. Tamar Chansky shows you dozens of simple yet powerful strategies you can use at any time to transform your anxious thoughts, conquer perfectionism and procrastination, and improve the way your brain reacts to stress, even without medication.

For anyone suffering with an anxiety disorder or depression, or who simply wants to handle everyday challenges more optimally and successfully, Dr. Chansky's innovative program will help you breathe easier. Get ready to feel calm, confident, more like yourself again—and free to create the life you want.

Book News Annotation:

A useful alternative to positive thinking is possible thinking. Resting on this premise, this book provides four steps for overcoming anxiety or depression, and breaks them down further into useful strategies. "Try this" exercises regularly appear along with occasional humorous illustrations. Chansky, a clinical psychologist and founder of the Children's and Adult Center for OCD and Anxiety, notes in the introduction that these features are intentionally included to also engage the right brain. Clearly written, it expands the focus beyond just anxiety and provides sections on assessing one's strengths and cultivating compassion and gratitude.

Synopsis:

We all know what is healthy to think and what is not, much like we know that eating an apple is better than gorging on donuts. But once we start thinking anxious thoughts, it is tough to move from disaster to reality. Our brain can ruin our day.

The roadmap to happiness can be found in Freeing Yourself from Anxiety. Unlike most guides, Dr. Tamar Chansky’s book explains that the solution is not positive thinking, but possible thinking. Armed with her strategies, readers can achieve accurate perceptions of their lives that can liberate them from fear and perfectionism.

For the 25 percent of Americans who have an anxiety problem, Freeing Yourself from Anxiety provides the step-by-step tools for living stress free, without medications.
