Summary

Anxiety is natural. Calm is learned.

If you didn’t learn yesterday, you can learn today.

It’s not easy, of course. Once your natural alarm system is triggered, it’s hard to find the off switch. Indeed, you don’t have an off switch until you build one. Tame Your Anxiety shows you how.

Listeners learn about the brain chemicals that make us feel threatened and the chemicals that make us feel safe. You’ll see how your brain turns on these chemicals with neural pathways built from past experience, and, most important, you discover your power to build new pathways, to enjoy more happy chemicals, and reduce threat chemicals.

This audiobook does not tell you to imagine yourself on a tropical beach. That’s the last thing you want when you feel like a lion is chasing you. Instead, you will learn to ask your inner mammal what it wants and how you can get it. Each time you step toward meeting a survival need, you build the neural pathways that expect your needs to be met. You don’t have to wait for a perfect world to feel good. You can feel good right now.

The exercises in this audiobook help you build a self-soothing circuit in steps so small that anyone can do it. Once you learn how it’s done, and how it can help ease your anxiety, you will learn how to handle situations in which you feel threatened or anxious. Understanding the underlying mechanisms will help you stop them before they get ahead of you.

Exceptionally accessible and practical guide

One of the most useful books on understanding and managing the nuances of anxiety I’ve come across. Well written, beautifully narrated and practical from the first chapter onwards.

Information dense but easy to digest.

I listened to it twice. I'll probably be doing so again soon. I've had a year that's led to some panic attacks. This book has been extremely helpful in explaining not only what is happening and why, but also how to get through the stress cycle in a healthy way. I'll probably be doing so It was highly informative yet easily digestible. Thankyou Loretta!
