You can`t just “get over” anxiety. In fact, the very things most people do to try to feel better–avoiding feared situations, pushing worry out of mind–only make the problem worse. Leading psychologists Susan M. Orsillo and Lizabeth Roemer present a powerful new alternative that can help you break free of anxiety by fundamentally changing how you relate to it. With clarity and compassion, this book describes clinically tested mindfulness practices specifically tailored for anxiety in its many forms. Learn step-by-step strategies for gaining awareness of anxious feelings without letting them escalate, loosening the grip of worry and fear, and achieving a new level of emotional and physical well-being. Free audio downloads of mindfulness exercises plus other resources are available at the authors` website, www.mindfulwaythroughanxietybook.com.
By far the most sophisticated and engaging guide I have seen on mindfulness and anxiety. This book is a gem. Two of the field`s most knowledgeable and creative experts skillfully take you on a journey into the hidden corners of your anxious mind. With a seamless blend of interesting stories, state-of-the-art research, and exercises, this book leads you step by step toward a fuller, more meaningful life. It is an excellent resource for anyone who seeks a path to freedom from anxiety and stress.
