Publisher's Summary

Anxiety is torturous. Anxiety feels suffocating. In other words, anxiety sucks!

However, anxiety is curable!

I want to help you and give you all of the tips that can help you overcome your fears, so you can start living the life you’re truly meant to live. I know deep down there is a part of you that wants to change your life and really say enough is enough with feeling anxious. I will not hold back in this book. I give you the complete truth about what it takes to build yourself up and get out of any rut that you may be in. I have been at the lowest of lows and know exactly what it feels like, but just have faith that by the end of this book, life will never be the same again. 

Most people who have high anxiety levels find themselves worrying over little details that most people would find insignificant or small. Sometimes, it can even get so bad that the more you try to fight it, the stronger your anxiety becomes. In this book, I’ll break everything down and explain why anxiety occurs. I’ll also provide proven solutions to end this horrible feeling.

If you are hesitant about taking over-the-counter drugs, this is definitely the safest way to do it! It won’t be easy, but it will be worth it!

Fast shipping, product in excellent condition!!!!

I have anxiety and panic attacks and am always looking for ways to help myself control them. I have read a few books about the Buteyko Breathing Method and I knew this book included more information about this method, so I bought it. Since I try and get a lot out of these books, I am reading this one very slowly and taking notes.It is a book about how to stop worrying and quieting your mind.I think I will always use the guidance for right breathing given in this book. A gem. The philosophical ideas in the book are understandable because the practical approach to breathing is so effective.

Engaging, efficient, informative... well done!!!

The Anxiety Audiobook is an excellent resource, especially for friends and family of people suffering from anxiety, specific phobias or disorders. A lot of times people who aren't educated in all of the terminology, psychology and such actually make anxiety worse for people suffering from it because they try to insert logic when the entire point of disorder level anxiety is that it does not respond to reason.If you’re suffering from anxiety, this book will help you out. It gives you a basic understanding of the causes of anxiety.

Wonderful Workbook!!!!

I bought this book because I just started a job and my anxiety was really acting up. When I finally got home from work I couldn't go to sleep for hours. This book was so helpful. By following he guides and tips I've been able to better manage my anxiety. I have to do the WORK, but I’d rather invest my time in it instead of feeling terrible all the time and wasting so many moments of my life because of how bad my anxiety has gotten. I wish I would have found this in previous pregnancies, and I recommend it to all mamas to be and new mamas.

It Just Feels Right!!!!

Best yet of Mark's books on explaining the neuroscience of hearing. This book is much more accessible that Evolve Your Brain and provides many inspiring examples of how people have had remarkable hearings due to the placebo effect.The body is living in that new future because the body doesn't know the difference between an emotion created by an actual experience and one created by th ought alone. So that heightened state of emotion in response to the new thought is a vital component of this process!

Get to Know Your Self!!!

The compassionate knowledge shared in this book will help many deal with anxiety issues. The format of the book is actually a workbook that involves readers in their own healing by posing questions and giving time and space for personal reflection.This book is more about anxiety than yoga, but a wonderful blend of the two. As an innovate book, it ranks at the top. It presents clinical information in a readable way, as well as stories about ordinary people using the techniques.

Informative and Worthwhile!!

This book offers some of the best solutions I have ever read for dealing with anxiety. I like the heart math approach and don't care if it t is considered scientific or not. It works if you work it. As with all techniques it is absolutely necessary to practice.I recommend this book to all of my clients who are looking to find simple ways to practice mindfulness based stress reduction.

worth the price and more!!

This was a great workbook! All of the concepts are laid out in a clean and concise manner so any layman would be able to follow along. The exercises are not too daunting but also not too simple.Anyone can benefit from this book, even if they don't feel they have anxiety, depression, or addiction issues. It is broken up in sections so you can easily focus on one topic more than the others if you prefer.

Clear, concise, and incredibly interesting!!!

This book helped me so much! I knew about Cognitive Behavioral Therapy before reading it, but didn’t know how to implement it as part of my life. It was written in a clear and concise way that was easy for the average person to understand. I also really enjoyed the step by step exercises to help deal with intrusive thoughts. I really like this book and the suggestions it gives in helping you to change your mindset. I suffer from severe anxiety and reading this has given me a few different ideas and techniques in helping me to identify my obstacles, take better control of my thoughts.

Very easy and fast to listen.

Great book. Opened my eyes to viewing our actions from an evolutionary perspective. To be honest I have minimal anxiety but a keen interest in how it works. I recommend this to anyone that wants a brief insight to what motivates us. I wish I would have read this book years ago! This book helped me have a much better understanding of panic and anxiety disorders This is a great book! Even if you don't think you don't suffer from anxiety it gives great coping skills for multiple life situations. I recommended this book. Excellent book.

Great for anyone who deals with anxiety.

This is a good workbook if you have anxiety, or if you're a professional mental health worker. I am both. I am a mental health therapist who has also suffered from panic disorder. This book was recommended to me by my therapist and I can see why. Its been helping me tremendously with my anxiety and panic attacks. It's such a great tool! Knowing why your brains works, the science behind it and a multitude of reasons is helpful when you are feeling a kind of way. I have lost my copy and with some stress in my life have some more anxiety creeping up so this is my second copy. Thanks for an awesome book!

Best book for Anxiety!!

This was quite a well written introduction to investing. There were several different types of investing discussed but not so many as to be overwhelming to a beginner. I like the clickable table of contents so I can easily skip back to the parts I want to listen. and From this book you will find out about how to build up the correct mentality of a trader,what division pivot is and how to utilize it,what to do when you wind up in a phony out and considerably more. Very much designed and supportive. . I liked this book and I am glad to have it in my library. I highly recommend this book for those who need the information about the investing. It is worth listen.

Good Information for beginners.

I have suffered from social anxiety since childhood. I tend to stay to myself as much as possible and avoid social settings. My husband is a very social person and has a job that requires him to attend different events. I try to support him but always find myself with nothing to say to these people and I always try to hide in a corner, or make an excuse to leave. This book give some great tips on being prepared for situations like these. While I am not someone who suffers from a social anxiety disorder, I do have friends who do. I think this book helps me more clearly understand how it happens and the things that could be done to help the situation.

Easy listen with helpful tips

Anxiety or not this book is worth the read. I read this and as I went along it made me see myself and how I can improve the person I am. Well worth to spend a couple of hours (and dollars) on yourself with the help of this insightful book. This book is very helpful, very easy to read. I appreciate the writing style, feels like you are just having a conversation, makes it easy to follow. I’m sure this book will be a great help to many people! This is an honest, and insightful look at anxiety. It is written in a warm and casual style reminiscent of a conversation one would have with a friend, but don't let that fool you; i like this. excellent book,

Best book to give as a gift.

Very informational book it actually opened my eyes I found out a lot of something I was never aware of in regard to the one major cause of the anxiety in a modern society and its natural treatment. I love the Authors style of being honest and vulnerable in his writings! His stories draw you in, are so relatable! The book serves as a practical assist with life’s challenges and allowing you to love yourself. his book is great for self discovery. Four stars only because I was hoping to learn a skill set to combat anxiety but have found this is more of a book to learn about myself. I do enjoy it and have partnered it with professional help. This book gives you step by step instructions which are very useful, explains things in a very clear and gentle way, and also helps out with visual cues. I think this is a great book for those trying to overcome their anxiety.
