Anxiety is epidemic and it touches people from all walks of life, knowing no age, gender, ethnic, or economic boundaries. It can be paralyzing while considerably narrowing the scope of your life.
This book provides practical, holistic, easily understood strategies for all ages, presented through storytelling and the sharing of real experiences. You will discover the benefits of cognitive behavioral work (yes, your thinking and behavior do matter!) and learn how to let go of control, stop what-iffing, set boundaries, calm your body, and stop stewing - all to help you alleviate your anxiety. You will discover the importance of effective strategies such as visualization, mindfulness and meditation, self-care, and the practice of gratitude.
The author believes that anxiety is impacted by our life experience and the manipulation of our DNA at the cellular level, but more importantly, that it is largely a learned behavior. The good news is this: what you have learned you can unlearn - and then you can learn something new! As you move through this book you will be gently coached to befriend and then let go of your anxiety, creating lasting change.
