Click here to read reviewer Karri Watson's take on Freeing Yourself from Anxiety.
Freeing Yourself from Anxiety is a guidebook for navigating the sometimes-baffling world of anxiety conditions. Clinical psychologist Tamar Chansky provides both case studies and practical exercises to provide readers a blueprint to follow on their way to living a less stressful life.
Back in the days before a 24-hour news cycle, it was easier for people to retain a positive outlook on life. With the advent of constant news availability comes a higher number of people becoming literally worried sick.
Chansky breaks down her approach to less stressful living into four parts. First, she suggests deciphering whether the worry is legitimate or panic-driven. The next step is to narrow it down to the actual risk involved. This is followed by using either uninvolved third parties or appropriate professionals to gain a realistic perspective. The final step is to do something about the problem.
Freeing Yourself from Anxiety offers common sense practical options to the epidemic of overreaction that is running rampant today. It is an imminently readable book because it does not talk down to readers or fly above their heads.
If you or someone you know can be labeled a perpetual worrywart, buying Freeing Yourself from Anxiety is one of the best things you can do for yourself or them.
