I have gone the past few years living with a lot of anxiety and stress. Many people don’t think I should be stressed. I’m a Stay at Home Mom of two kids, my husband has a great job, we are close with our family, no financial hardships, sounds pretty good? Even I’m convinced. It wasn’t until I read this book, that I realized it’s not my fault I have anxiety. My brain is constantly going 240, and most of the time worrying, or thinking about negative things. Why? I have no clue. This book made me realize that I’m not alone, and that there are real ways to conquer these problems without medication. I refuse to take medication, so I was super excited to find out simple exercises to do to make me a more positive person.
I have not changed over night, or even in a week, but I notice little things. For example, I’m more aware of when I’m getting angry over things I cannot control. When I start thinking negative thoughts, I realize it, and try to pull out a positive. One step at a time I am gaining my life back. The beginning of the book is a little complex with all of the science and psychology, but it’s very interesting and eye-opening.
