The 10 Best Ever Anxiety

This book, authored by Dr. Margaret Wehrenberg, a licensed psychologist in Missouri, USA, offers readers practical strategies to manage anxiety. Based on evidence from brain research, readers will learn what is happening at a neurological level to cause feelings of anxiety, as well as science-based behavioural and cognitive strategies that have been proven to be effective at helping individuals manage those feelings and obtain greater feelings of control over their emotions. A detailed rationale and step-by-step instructions are provided for each technique, which include diaphragmatic breathing, self-talk, mindfulness, muscle relaxation, and “plan-to-panic” strategies. This book is designed to help individuals who struggle with anxiety to “retrain” their brain so that they can conquer stress and anxiety and live happier and more productive lives.
