"Keep calm and carry on" is a phrase that was featured on a British poster produced during WWII. This practical reminder to set anxiety aside has become the mantra of thousands of people who suffer from everyday worries, fears, and frustrations, but how to keep calm remains a difficult question for the millions of people suffering from clinical and subclinical anxiety. Finally, there is a pocket-sized book readers can turn to in the very moment they are experiencing anxiety. It features twenty short lessons and techniques for understanding and calming anxiety. Author Mark Reinecke, chief of the Division of Psychology at Northwestern University, created these lessons out of years of anxiety research and personal experience treating anxiety as a psychologist. Drawn from cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), the most effective therapeutic method for calming anxiety symptoms, each short lesson includes a quote, an explanation of how the anxiety-reducing technique works, and an activity or reflection for the reader. This concise handbook is perfect for anyone who needs a little help keeping calm in anxious times.
