    One thought on “Coping with Anxiety: 10 Simple Ways to Relieve Anxiety, Fear, and Worry”

    1. As someone who struggles with anxiety far more frequently than I'd like to admit, I actually thought this was quite good. Bourne and Garano take a holistic approach to dealing with worry that is intuitive and helpful in large part because it is so rooted in common sense. Its effectiveness presumably is dependent on the reader. There's little in this slender book that you can't figure out on your own, but I suppose anyone who's got it all down already isn't suffering from anxiety issues. It makes [...]

    2. This was a quick read, with oodles of good ideas and pointers for getting through periods of anxiety. If you ever suffer through difficult times where your worrying brain gets the best of you, I recommend you pick this one up.

    3. This is a good book for finding help to cope with anxiety. It was a short book that helped me learn more about the forms of anxiety and how they may present themselves. The coping exercises helped me a lot and let me learn that there are other ways, besides medication, to help calm my anxiety. It was hard to read cause it wasn't thrilling material, but it was full of information, methods, and suggestions and were very rewarding to me.

    4. I'd call this an excellent "for Beginners" book. While all of it was a retread for me, Bourne sometimes explained things better than I had gotten from other sources.

    5. Excellent, non-medication oriented suggestions are in this book designed for improving anxiety in social situations. A great read.

    6. This little book, at 150 small pages in roughly quarto size, lives up to its name, when you take it at its word. This is not a book about dealing with the root causes of anxiety, nor is this a book about placing the blame for anxiety on anyone or anything, nor is this even a book about those who deal with serious and crippling anxiety, for which the authors recommend professional help. No, this is a book about coping with anxiety, dealing with the symptoms and making the best of it. While the bo [...]

    7. Coping with Anxiety is a handy, practical resource for someone interested in overcoming and coping with general and/or specific anxiety at any level whether periodic or clinical. It is a pragmatic resource for the helpee and the helper, the practitioner who seeks to offer a useful text to a client (bibliotherapy), a group or simply as a go to reference in one’s library. I highly recommend this to social workers, life coaches, chaplains, pastors, teachers and caregivers. This practical usefulne [...]

    8. I won a copy of this book from . The following is my review.There a lot of helpful techniques in this book to help you relax and cope with anxiety . However there is no gold stand and so not everyone will benefit from them, especially if they don't do them correctly. I did find the breathing exercises very relaxing . While you don't have to suffer from anxiety or stress or fears to benefit from this book, it is a nice book to reference if you need help with those.I am not quite in agreement with [...]

    9. I'm ambivalent about this one. The first 2-3 chapters were very helpful and had a lot of good information about breathing techniques and muscle relaxation. But the chapter on nutrition was actually pretty bad and included recommendations that are considered to be "quackery" by most medical and nutrition professionals. This book is geared mostly towards people with severe anxiety disorders so I'm finding myself skimming over a lot of parts.

    10. This is my "go-to" book when my anxiety starts acting up. It's simple, concise, and easy to understand. It provides a well-rounded solution to anxiety using cognitive, situational, behavioral, and clinical approaches. It's basically everything you could learn from years of therapy in one little book.

    11. I didn't really learn anything new from this book. It was simply a rehashing of things I've been told hundreds of times. This may be helpful to those who are starting their search for coping methods, but it just wasn't very useful to me.

    12. A reread for me since it's been a few years since I first read it. When I initially read this it was before I'd been diagnosed with having anxiety. A lot of what is in here is what my therapist worked with me on so it's great having a reminder of what I can do when that flares up.

    13. This book is helpful to me, and after reading this book, it has given me to tools to try out everything I've learned in this book (from memory).

    14. My anxiety disorder is a part of my life and in the depth of it I needed this guidance! It is a fabulous book!!!!

    15. I won this in a giveaway. There are good strategies and advice here for dealing with the anxieties that most of us have.

    16. Having a panic disorder sucks, but this book give several logical and easy to implement ideas on how to deal.

    17. Good, helpful things in here. Obviously not everything works for everyone, but they throw plenty of coping ideas at you and a few are bound to work.

    18. There were some great things in this book. Progressive muscle relaxation has helped me calm down and relax before bed. Deep breathing exercies are always good practice for anxiety. I wish that the authors had spend more time on the chapter that dealt with distorted thoughts: i.e. What are your thoughts; what are you saying: what is the more likely situation; if the worse did happen, what would that be like? Don't get me wrong, I think it is helpful, I just wish they could have given more example [...]
