http://john-und.sandra-gaertner.de/trinuka-conversa-con-dios.php As a child therapist I have spent the last six or so months reading every anxiety book out there I have been disappointed, bored and at times unimpressed. I will admit - sometimes I don't make it to the end. But this book - this book rocked my commute. I laughed out loud and had new hope for my profession. If you have anxiety and a sens I love, love, love this book. If you have anxiety and a sense of humor - read this. Listen to this. It will help. I only gave it a one. If anxiety is "new" to you, I'd call it a 5 star. As I have already read so much and done so much work on myself over a couple of decades, for me it was "just" the simple stuff.
Having complex-PTSD needs a tad more help than this book can give. Oct 09, Stephanie. Didn't have an issue with the language or how it was written. Just found it overly simplistic and not really helpful for myself. Might be great for someone with less severe anxiety issues. Couldn't be bothered to finish it. Just completely lost interest. Jul 13, Lauren rated it really liked it. I will be using some of these. I recommend it. Jun 09, Charlene rated it it was amazing Shelves: fivestarfav , ptsd-trauma , mental-health , psychology , anxiety.
I loved this book. For just 71 pages it holds an incredible amount of information, all of which I found to be helpful and inspirational.
Written in a simple and friendly manner think casual coffee with a friend it is easy to understand and left me feeling pretty empowered. It's rare that books on depression or anxiety have funny moments within the pages but this one had me chuckling a few times. I especially like the interactive content such as a printable letter to give to those in your life I loved this book.
I especially like the interactive content such as a printable letter to give to those in your life you'd like to educate a little about your anxiety experience. There are also links to informative podcasts and a guided progressive muscle relaxation exercise. I highly recommend this. What will stick with me the most?
So much of it but right now I'm still delighted to discover another Diablo fan. Jan 08, Lauren Van Keulen rated it really liked it. A quick, no-bullshit, straight to the point approach to battling and learning to live with anxiety. I highly recommend it! Jul 01, J. Willson rated it really liked it. Therapy for anything be it anxiety, depression, addiction whatever, it's not an easy thing first off to admit, yet more so to move forward and actually do anything about it.
For most there is just too much of a stigma attached to this. If everyone could understand these 'illnesses' the way that this author and therapist explains them it would certainly make the entire process so much easier for those suffering from and equally those not. We would all be on the same damn page to use the authors tome. CBT cognitive behavioral therapy can be a difficult thing to understand and one of the topics touched upon here. The way the author describes it is how it was taught to me by my therapist at the time.
She made it so frighteningly easy to understand, because it really is. This book and it's contents are all explained in the same fashion so as to make everything in this book and it's difficult subjects, easy to understand- comprehensible. Well worth a gander Feb 14, Kelley rated it it was amazing.
I have a lot to say about this book and no way to put it into words. The author is an actual psychologist and offers genuine insight into managing anxiety and panic disorders. He doesn't try to bullshit you with hokey home remedies and telling you to just relax or just breathe. He offers actual practices and infuses the whole crappy situation with humor. This isn't your ordinary self-help book. I'm keeping this one I have a lot to say about this book and no way to put it into words.
I'm keeping this one on my kindle. Tip: keep a piece of paper and pencil handy while reading this. You'll thank me later Nov 27, Tucker rated it it was ok. This line from the Introduction reveals the writing style to come: "Whether your spirit weapon is a badass ninja katana or a freakin' rocket launcher, I will help you wield its epic power and slay that little shit named anxiety for good.
The concepts are presented in a way that is too facile to provide much new insight. Dec 30, Lane rated it liked it. A decent primer As an introduction to anxiety, and for providing some baseline coping skills, this is fine. Just don't expect anything too in-depth or useful for those who have been attacking their anxiety for any length of time. Apr 28, Nathan J Vallee rated it it was amazing. Great quick and fun read Fun.
Easy to finish in a sitting. A nice break from wordy and stuffy clinicals. A good jumping of point. Mar 27, Fahad Naeem rated it liked it Shelves: self-help , nonfiction , I liked cognitive behavioral therapy CBT and his discussion about polarized thinking which can help readers in every aspect of life. I also related ABC method to daily events happened in everyone of our lives and which was quite helpful as well. I tend to disagree on the point that breathing exercises don't work. They actually work. Meditation is a thousand years old process. He also discussed about recharging battery in leisure time to give a habit of relaxing at times of stress and anxiety.
Anxiety disorder chapter is where he started losing his pace and did not know what he's talking about. Overall it was an average book. Nov 27, Linh rated it really liked it. A lot of negative reviews say that the advice the author gives about breathing is just another hack. I found this to be a very encouraging book. Maybe not super clinical it advertises itself as NOT being clinical , but it has some tools that are worth trying out. Why not try the breathing if nothing else is working??? May 25, Cat rated it it was ok. I'm sure this advice is great for some people; it just didn't suit me.

I read this book thanks to Blinkist. The key message in this book: Anxiety disorders can be hugely debilitating, but there are straightforward techniques that can help you calm yourself down and treat yourself better. Actionable Advice Practice breathing every day. Every day, take 15 minutes to calm down and relax. Begin breathing, focusing on the sensation of the air entering and exiting your body. First, try to breathe in for four seconds, hold your breath for four more and then breathe out for a final four. Then, change the pattern to for a few minutes; breathe in for four seconds, hold your breath until seven and then release at eight.
Feb 23, Kaitlyn. I was recovering from one of my episodes when I found this book. My heart was racing and I couldn't catch my breath. After having these episodes for years I decided to do something about them. If not rid them forever find away to control them. After researching my symptoms I found that they matched anxiety to the T.
I wish I was surprised but I wasn't. My PCP told me I had it once before but I sort of brushed the idea out of my mind as soon as she said anything. Fast forward two days later I hav I was recovering from one of my episodes when I found this book. Fast forward two days later I have never felt this in control of anything in a long time. It's going to be a journey but really getting down to the core of what the heck is going on with the help of this book was vital and the first huge step towards getting better.
Highly recommend this book if you have anxiety. Mar 31, No Biz rated it really liked it. Refreshingly fowl mouthed, real, and to the point. The writing style is fucking refreshing and the author comes across as a dude I could hang with. The information and encouragement about anxiety helps put things into a perspective that you may not notice when you're in the midst of an anxiety attack or worried about some shit you can't control.
It could be better edited without sacrificing his writing voice, and he books is more like an overview of anxiety and the basics of how to begin to cope Refreshingly fowl mouthed, real, and to the point. It could be better edited without sacrificing his writing voice, and he books is more like an overview of anxiety and the basics of how to begin to cope with it. Not a step by step plan, if that is what you seek. Oh, Bob Ross is the bomb. I'll just leave this little guy right there. Jan 05, Tod Sappington rated it it was amazing.
Short and Sweet I once went to a therapist due to a fluttering feeling in the area around one of my eyes. I felt it was due to stress and made an appointment out of town. I wanted to keep it private. All he had to do was tell me it was normal and would not last long. It never came back!!
Sometimes we just need the assurance that we are OK. I liked the breathing exercise and have used it for years. I hope people try this. Dec 05, Linsey rated it liked it. Some good tips but nothing I haven't heard times before. I did enjoy his humor tossed in. A title like that and a grand total of 71 pages?
Count me in! To be fair, I did not expect much. And this book is 71 pages. A snack hardly longer than that ramble on cracked. So, how much can you cram in under pages of self help g A title like that and a grand total of 71 pages? So, how much can you cram in under pages of self help glory? Not much, but sometimes a little bit is all you need. If you need a few laughs, they're there. A few useful tidbits of information here and there the theory, I suppose. Just ignore that nonsense on breathing deeply to provide more oxygen to your brain.
