Break free from anxiety—once and for all! From the authors of The Mindfulness and Acceptance Workbook for Anxiety, this powerful yet portable guide offers fifty-two in-the-moment mindfulness strategies you can use anytime, anywhere to cultivate calm and radically transform your life. 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.

This is a Danish classic available in translation. From the preface: ""The Concept of Anxiety"" is one of Kierkegaard's major works. It summarizes and anticipates themes that are developed in his other works, but not by presenting a unified perception. It has more the character of a work that constitutes a turning point: themes from earlier works (in particular Either/Or) are pursued in a broken way that gives a new starting point for later works. Even though ""The Concept of Anxiety"" is often an unreasonably difficult book, it is worthwhile to read as a gateway to the entire works of Kierkegaard. 'In the following chapters I will provide a thematic introduction to Kierkegaard's body of work based on ""The Concept of Anxiety"". In chapter 1, which in volume is already different from the others, I explore ways of thinking and major themes in The Concept of Anxiety, and then in the following chapters I pursue them in other works, only to return to The Concept of Anxiety. 'Since an introduction to Kierkegaard is also an invitation to read Kierkegaard himself; I give many text references as we go along, but I hope in a discrete way so that it does not disturb the coherent reading of the book. The text references are also extensive for another reason. When one wants to examine the major themes of Kierkegaard's work, it is important to connect these themes to the individual works in order to get a feeling for both the often complex development in the individual text and for the differences and tensions between the individual works. At the same time I have in a more discursive way tried to hold on to questions, cross referencing them with the individual works'.
Everybody has anxiety in the face of threats and dangers, and this is a perfectly natural reaction. But sometimes anxiety or a particular worry can get out of control and develop into disorders such as chronic and excessive worry, panic attacks, phobia, obsession and other forms of anxiety disorder. In this book each of these forms of anxiety is described from the point of view of the reader who experiences them, rather than from that of psychologists or neurophysiologists, whose explanations of how the brain functions in anxiety hardly help the sufferer. You will gain insight into your own personal anxiety problems and learn how to cope with them yourself, without medication, by carrying out exercises selected for their effectiveness. With an understanding of your anxieties and with the help of questionnaires, you can create a personal program to bring anxiety under control.
