“Langer speaks from hard-won experience in her valuable, heartfelt manual on curbing excessive worrying. Langer’s frank and empathetic tone will comfort readers, as will the practical steps she teaches.” --Publishers Weekly (BookLife)

Thirty years ago, Gigi Langer was a prisoner of her worries who used alcohol, romance, and professional accomplishments to soothe her frayed nerves. When she stopped drinking, she began applying tools from therapy, recovery pro¬grams, scientific research, and a variety of philosophical and spiritual teachings to overcome her anxieties and stress.

Worry Less Now offers four life strategies and 50 eclectic tools to dissolve the “whispered lies” of negative self-talk. Although many books address negative thinking, very few give the reader step-by-step directions on how to defeat it. Others simply advocate a single approach.

With candor and humor, Langer describes a wide variety of strategies that helped her and others defeat dysfunctional relationships, perfectionism, addiction, and worry about loved ones. As an award-winning writer and professor, Langer skillfully shares compelling stories and exercises that empower readers to:

-MANAGE life’s most difficult challenges with calm wisdom

-CREATE healthy relationships that blossom and thrive

-FULFILL their dreams through positive thinking

-SERVE others in their personal growth

Regardless of the situation, Worry Less Now will help you gain peace, clarity, and wisdom.

REVIEWS:

“Langer’s homing in on all the aspects of negative self-talk and worry add breadth to her advice and make it a powerful tool for readers.” – Library Journal

“Highly recommended for anyone who worries too much, lives too hard a life, and searches for a better way.”  -- Midwest Book Review

About the author

Gigi Langer holds a PhD in Psychological Studies in Education and an MA in Psychology, both from Stanford University. As a professor, she won several awards for her teaching, and wrote four books and hundreds of articles for educators.

 As a person in recovery, Gigi hasn’t had a drug or drink for over 30 years, although she does occasionally overindulge in Ghirardelli chocolate and historical novels. Through speeches, retreats, and workshops, she helps thousands of people improve their lives at home and at work.

Gigi’s latest book began as a memoir chronicling her three short marriages, career as a professional horseback rider, and adventures hitchhiking across the north of Spain--all before she turned 38. She decided instead to write a self-help book to share the many tools she's found to Worry Less Now.

Formerly crowned the "Queen of Worry," Gigi resigned her post many years ago and now lives happily in Michigan with her husband, Peter, and her cat, Murphy.
