Anxiety, in different forms, affects almost everyone at one time or another. It can actually be helpful when making decisions or performing, but when anxiety gets out of hand, whether it's from everyday stress or a severe chronic condition such as panic or posttraumatic stress, we need to learn how to manage it. In this concise how-to guide, free from scientific jargon, Moore has compiled the field's most well-established methods for reducing anxiety. Using compelling case examples and providing easy-to-use techniques, Moore teaches you to identify and prevent the negative effects of anxiety. He also explains the pros and cons of anxiety medications and offers guidance for finding professional help. By following step-by-step checklists and detailed action plans, you will learn how to adjust your daily (schedules, examine and improve thinking patterns, and manage reactions to the things you fear for maximum gains in life.
