Summary

Perfect for listeners of You Are a Badass comes a bullshit-free perspective and a no-frills account of anxiety from the front line. For those facing the same struggle, Caroline explores exactly what anxiety is, its triggers and the various treatments - from CBT, acupuncture and diet to the often debated role of medication - that worked for her. With honesty, humour and a bullshit-free perspective, Owning It is a no-frills account of anxiety from the front line. 

Through the filtered lens of social media, it may seem like life's a peach, but for lots of people - journalist and author Caroline Foran included - anxiety is always bubbling beneath the surface. Here, she chronicles her experiences. From being unable to cope with the thought of venturing outside, to walking away from her fast-paced job, to the different and sometimes controversial treatments available - from cognitive behavioural therapy to acupuncture to medication - Caroline shows us how she eventually found a way of owning her anxiety so that it doesn't own her. 

With extensive research and help from the experts, Owning It is written with honesty and a bullshit-free perspective. Consider it your ultimate practical guide that aims to get you feeling good again.

Very relatable

I really enjoyed this, it gave me hope that anxiety can go away and it has given me some new ideas of things to try.
The only thing I would say is that the talking is very fast and I would have to listen to each chapter more than once to take in all the information. But it wasn’t a problem and the reader was being herself (I listen to her podcasts too) :)

Good ideas and good summary <br />

Listened to it within a couple of weeks. very helpful - a lot of things i already used but she explained the science behind them and confirmed the studies done on different methods of helping to deal with stress and anxiety

One of my favourite books ever

Great inspirational read

Inspirational and really helping me, my only issue although the voice of the reader is lovely she can read a little to fast for my head to take some of the information in. I found this to stress me out, she needed a slower voice. I will continue to listen again and again & put her exercises in to practice

Great summary

When I got diagnosed with anxiety disorder I wished I had this summary on all important aspects to recovery! This gives you a clear overview on the different options to recovery.
Afterwards you got more in dept on the different topics!
