Do you have a tremendous fear of public speaking, flying, or other social situations? Do you live in fear of having another panic attack? Do you depend on antidepressants, alcohol, or other medications to calm you down or help you sleep? If so, you're not alone. Tens of millions of Americans are affected by anxiety disorders and many more worldwide. I personally struggled for five years with extreme social anxiety and panic attacks, constantly battling my own scary and seemingly uncontrollable thoughts. I finally found the path to freedom from excessive worry, medication, and fear. I have overcome these problems and now live my life with a greater sense of inner peace and calmness. I'm not a medical doctor, psychiatrist, or therapist of any sort. I am simply a normal guy whose life was once overrun with constant worry, fear, and depression. With great determination, research, and trial and error, I have returned to a healthy state of wholeness and optimism. My book details many of the problems I encountered daily, struggles that anyone suffering from anxiety can certainly relate to. I expand in detail upon my journey towards personal freedom, the valuable lessons I learned along the way, and how to apply them to your own life. I discuss why I had several severe relapses with my progress, and how you can avoid the same pitfalls. Some of the highlights of the book include: Education - Explanations of what anxiety is, and how it affects your body and mind. Strategy - How to formulate a plan to overcome your own fears and self-created limitations. Techniques - Discussions of the various physical and mental techniques I found most helpful in my recovery and still practice today, including meditation. Inspiration - I show you how to gain a sense of urgency and inspiration to change your life. Life Changes - Adjustments to your lifestyle to help encourage a peaceful mind and body.

From the Author:

I am a normal guy from the Midwestern U.S. in his early 30's whose life was once a constant struggle against extreme social anxiety and panic attacks. For over five years I battled my own scary thoughts, anxious feelings and worries that I could lose control of myself and my mind at any given moment.

Like many of the tens of millions in the U.S. who suffer from debilitating anxiety (and many more worldwide), I felt completely lost and hopeless at times. For years I turned to self-medication through alcohol, and doctors who prescribed just about every anti-anxiety and antidepressant medication on the market. I felt the medication numbed me both emotionally and physically, and worst of all - I was still anxious and having panic attacks! There had to be another way to beat anxiety.

My Personal Journey towards Freedom I spent years reading every book I could find on the subject of panic attacks, anxiety and psychology. I experimented with different therapies and mental-conditioning exercises, and explored various spiritual and religious approaches to life in the hopes of finding something that would help me.

I was determined to fix my anxiety problems without the use of any prescription medication or traditional talk therapy. Everything I learned and applied to my own life has completely changed me forever. I am free from panic attacks and my social anxiety problems, and have a new zest and excitement for life that I previously never thought I could achieve.

I wrote this book to help others free themselves from the shackles of panic attacks and anxiety, and to once again live a real life. I want everyone out there who is suffering to take the same journey towards freedom that I have taken, and to once again realize how amazing and wonderful life really is. You can put your life back together and live without the constant fears and worries that plague your mind now. Just imagine that!

No matter how bad off you feel you are, there is always hope. On many occasions I was just about ready to give up on life, feeling incredibly low, frustrated and hopeless. Yet I still was able to recover and create a new life full of hope and excitement for the future. I know you can do the same, and am hopeful that this book can help you along your journey towards freedom.

Review:

A Life Less Anxious is genuine and practical. In a day and age where we "medicate first and ask questions later" it is great to have a resource to help people deal with their anxiety using proven techniques .... I highly recommend this book! --Tim Ursiny, PH.D., Founder, Advantage Coaching & Training and author of The Top Performer's Guide to Attitude, The Confidence Plan and The Coward's Guide to Conflict

In these stressful times, everyone can benefit from inspiring, practical suggestions on how to create peace of mind. Kudos to the author for this helpful book. Read it and reap. --Sam Horn, author of POP! and Tongue Fu!®
