The newly updated workbook companion for putting the top anxiety management techniques into practice.
Brimming with exercises, worksheets, tips, and tools, this complete how-to workbook companion expands on the top 10 anxiety-busting techniques Margaret Wehrenberg presents in the earlier edition of this book, showing readers exactly how to put them into action.
From panic disorders, generalized anxiety, and social anxiety, to overall worry and stress, manifestations of anxiety are among the most common—and often debilitating—mental health complaints. But thanks to a flood of supporting brain research, effective, practical strategies have emerged that allow us to manage day-to-day anxiety on our own.
Here Dr. Wehrenberg offers us a trove of them, showing just how physical, emotional, and behavioral symptoms can be alleviated with targeted methods. Step-by-step exercises for practicing counter-cognition, mindfulness meditation, thought-stopping, and thought-replacement, "breathing minutes," demand delays, cued relaxation, affirmations, and much, much more are presented—all guaranteed to overcome your anxious thoughts.
The accompanying audio downloads feature an array of calming, author-guided exercises including targeted breath work, muscle relaxation, mindfulness, and much more.
