Summary

"Simple, lucid advice." (Matt Haig, Sunday Times best-selling author of Reasons to Be Alive

A warm and supportive audiobook to help ease worry and panic, written and read by the author, Sarah Rayner. 

In this new audio version of the best-selling book, Sarah Rayner tells of on her own experience of anxiety disorder and recovery and shares her insights into this extremely common and often distressing condition with compassion and humor. She reveals the seven elements that commonly contribute to anxiety including adrenaline, negative thinking and fear of the future, and explains what causes worry and panic to become a problem for many of us. 

Illustrated by examples from the author's own life and backed by an online support group, since its launch in 2014 this companion to mental good health has helped thousands of sufferers across the world. Now, in 2017, it's been updated specially for audio to include exercises you can do at home, and dozens of bite-size suggestions from anxiety sufferers who share what's worked for them. 

If you suffer from panic attacks, a debilitating disorder or simply want to spend less time worrying, Making Friends with Anxiety will give you a greater understanding of how your mind and body work together, helping restore confidence and control.

Not for me

I found this is focused on the practical elements of anxiety, how to mitigate and manage physical symptoms. The little sounds for different types of information where good for getting attention, but a bit patronising.
