Reduce your anxiety, manage stress, and become more aware of your thought patterns through this easy-to-use, guided notebook. This notebook utilizes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, a rigorously-tested & widely-used treatment modality for anxiety, to help you develop the skills to identify, challenge, and change unhelpful thought patterns for the better.
Life without excessive worry and anxiety is possible.
Our worst fears can feel so real that it can be hard to imagine a life without excessive worry. This notebook will teach you that we can stop, notice, proceed, and reflect. We don’t have to follow our fears. The Anti-Anxiety Notebook is grounded in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, the most researched and effective form of psychotherapy. CBT is particularly well-suited for written exercises. Writing engages many senses at once and opens the brain up for learning—and therefore change. It’s a simple but altogether powerful tool for transformation.
How will this notebook help with anxiety?
The notebook primarily includes CBT, an evidence-based mental health treatment considered the gold standard for treating anxiety. In this notebook, you will practice becoming aware of the relationship between your thoughts and your feelings, empowering you to challenge and adjust them over time. We have included multiple CBT resources throughout the book and appendix to also further support your needs. Other tools, tips, and reflection questions are also available to help you discover which therapist tools work best for you.
