The very things we do to control anxiety can make anxiety worse. This unique guide offers a cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)-based approach to help you recognize the constant chatter of your anxious "monkey mind", stop feeding anxious thoughts, and find the personal peace you crave.
Ancient sages compared the human mind to a monkey: constantly chattering, hopping from branch to branch - endlessly moving from fear to safety. If you are one of the millions of people whose life is affected by anxiety, you are familiar with this process. Unfortunately, you can't switch off the "monkey mind", but you can stop feeding the monkey - or stop rewarding it by avoiding the things you fear.
Written by psychotherapist Jennifer Shannon, this book shows you how to stop anxious thoughts from taking over using proven-effective cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and mindfulness techniques. By following the exercises in this book, you'll learn to identify your own anxious thoughts, question those thoughts, and uncover the core fears at play.
Once you stop feeding the monkey, there are no limits to how expansive your life can feel. This book will show you how anxiety can only continue as long as you try to avoid it. And, paradoxically, only by seeking out and confronting the things that make you anxious can you reverse the cycle that keeps your fears alive.

As I was reading it explained my anxieties, my triggers and how I related, and reacted to them. I felt so understood!
This book offers a direct way to work with the anxiety. It doesn’t tell you to ignore, or replace your thoughts. What it does is explain how to learn to hold the anxious feelings and thus help stop the cycle of anxiety.
As I was reading I was recognising this style was actually the same as some spiritual practices I do. Such as non resistance and acceptance. They say the path out of anxiety is to go through it. I believe this to be true, and this book does an incredible job of holding your hand and walking you through the process.
Every aspect is considered and you get a great and yet simple tool kit to help start the process.
Really really wonderful.
Despite this I had high hopes. I am half way through and I am losing hope. Theres a lot of quizzes I need to take but I have to create an online account so I don’t bother. There’s loads of tangents/stories/diagrams/charts etc. she really delves in deep but I don’t really feel like she is going anywhere with it. Some of the book is really interesting but a lot of it can relate to a lot of people and I don’t think everyone who may have certain traits necessarily have anxiety. The solution is kind of “feel the fear and do it anyway” don’t feed your anxiety right by giving in to it.
