Michael Winford was a young man diagnosed with depression at the age of 14. Although he has had therapeutic help since he was young, he also suffered from anxiety and was prone to panic attacks. Nevertheless, after years of endurance, he persevered. Michael attended the University of Pennsylvania, earning a master's degree in Psychology and Social Science, and is now spending his free time off work to visit schools in order to help students who had suffered the same symptoms as he did.
We live in an age of anxiety, and studies show that it’s only getting worse. Anxiety forces itself into our awareness and can deplete our energy, resources, and resolve. It screams “pay attention to me—or else.” We may confront it the moment we wake up in the morning, and it can even keep us from getting to sleep at night. In short, it can run our lives. But it doesn’t have to be this way.
Building on the success of The Mindfulness and Acceptance Workbook for Anxiety, this quick reference guide offers fifty-two simple tools and strategies—one for each week of the year—based in proven-effective acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) to help you break free from worry, fear, and panic. In addition to “in-the-moment” tools for staying calm, you’ll learn about the underlying causes of your anxiety, why avoidance just doesn’t work, how to move past your negative inner voice, and how focusing on your values can help you move past anxiety and live a rich, meaningful life.
If—like many people—you’re fed up with anxiety getting in the way of living your life, the powerful little exercises in this guide will show you how to break the cycle of anxiety for good.
In this book the author talks about his experiences of anxiety and the struggles he faced over a ten year period of his life. During the last year of anxiety a number of things were realised that led to significant changes that eliminated the panic attacks and have minimalised the effects of anxiety and that’s the reason for this book.
