Three books and a podcast

If you're a fan of Mrs. Doubtfire, you will love listening to Dr. Claire Weekes in Hope and Help for your Nerves on Audible or CD.  Yes, some of the terminology is a little outdated, but I found the information very relevant and couldn't help being charmed as she cheered me on.  Little known fact about Claire is that she had anxiety and panic attacks as well throughout her life.

Chronic worriers, Dave Carbonell is at it again. His latest book is called The Worry Trick and follows the popular workbook, Panic Attacks Workbook. I've read and enjoyed the workbook and have just begun making my way through The Worry Trick.  You'll find expert advice inside on how to deal with chronic worry with a healthy dose of skill and humor.  Happy reading!

Do you find yourself backing away when anxiety makes it's move?  Reid Wilson teaches us the new rules of the game in his latest book "Stopping the Noise in Your Head". I've been reading a little bit every day and find myself underlining something on each page.  If you've read about my experience in his weekend workshop, you have an idea of what this looks like.  His style is very strategic, crosses over all anxiety disorders and you'll feel like he's coaching you personally along the way.

And finally, have you ever been listening to a podcast while driving home and it's so good you just sit in your car in front of the house, until it's over? In this section of This American Life, Paul Ford imagines what if anxiety were an IT problem to be solved?


Have a great weekend!
