Publisher's Summary

Are you truly in danger or has your brain simply "tricked" you into thinking you are? In The Worry Trick, psychologist and anxiety expert David Carbonell shows how anxiety hijacks the brain and offers effective techniques to help you break the cycle of worry, once and for all.

Anxiety is a powerful force. It makes us question ourselves and our decisions, causes us to worry about the future, and fills our days with dread and emotional turbulence. Based in acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), this audiobook is designed to help you break the cycle of worry.

Worry convinces us there's danger, and then tricks us into getting into fight, flight, or freeze mode - even when there is no danger. The techniques in this audiobook, rather than encouraging you to avoid or try to resist anxiety, show you how to see the trick that underlies your anxious thoughts, and how avoidance can backfire and make anxiety worse.

If you're ready to start observing your anxious feelings with distance and clarity - rather than getting tricked once again - this audiobook will show you how.

    "This book I can say has saved my life"

    Before I was so confused about anxiety and the constant uncontrollable worries I have, which were leading to depression, which led to suicidal thought's. this book has helped me understand alot about these problems and has helped me finally move on with my life. I would recommend this book to everyone so they can get an understanding of what anxiety is and how seriously it effects some people. and I would especially recommend this book to people who suffer with anxiety, as it helped me and with an open mind will help you, please don't suffer in silence like I did.

    "Life Changing."

    This author is a Godsend. I could not believe how much worry has been decreased. I was like a wet fish, I didn't even know I was doing it.

    I've tried therapy, medication, meditation, hypnosis, tons of articles YouTube videos, group support, soooo many things, this book is like the only thing that helped me. God bless you sir!

    "Life changing"

    Life changing book. Worry is a difficult topic to write about, but this book mastered it! Helped me start working through a lot of my chronic worries, and will probably re-listen to this book in the coming weeks to review the strategies. From day one it started improving my chronic worries!

    "Stop worrying long enough to listen"

    This audible is a gem!! I received so much from this book. It goes well with Quiet. Most introverts don't have a capacity for quieting the mind with thought upon thoughts and worry. Great book!!
