The Mindfulness and Acceptance Workbook for Anxiety : A Guide to Breaking Free From Anxiety, Phobias, and Worry Using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy

Description

Do you try to control your worry, fear, and panic, only to fail and end up feeling frustrated and powerless? Unfortunately, you cannot simply "turn off" anxious thoughts and feelings like a light switch. But there are ways you can take back your life and stop avoiding the things that cause you anxiety. This book has one purpose: to help you live better, more fully, and more richly. Your life is calling on you to make that choice, and the skills in this workbook can help you make it happen.

This fully revised and updated second edition offers compelling new ACT exercises to help you finally conquer your anxiety. You'll learn how your mind can trap you, keeping you stuck and struggling in anxiety and fear. You'll also discover ways to nurture your capacity for acceptance, mindfulness, kindness, and compassion, and use these qualities to shift your focus away from anxiety and onto what you really want your life to be about. Finally, you'll learn how to let go of the trauma and painful past experiences that can fuel your anxiety.

No matter what kind of anxiety problem you're struggling with, this workbook can guide you toward a more vibrant and purposeful life.
