A new book on Anxiety, rooted in mindfulness. Dr. Judson Brewer - Unwinding Anxiety: New Science Shows How to Break the Cycles of Worry and Fear to Heal Your Mind.
A step-by-step plan clinically proven to break the cycle of worry and fear that drives anxiety and addictive habits.
We are living through one of the most anxious periods any of us can remember. Whether facing issues as public as a pandemic or as personal as having kids at home and fighting the urge to reach for the wine bottle every night, we are feeling overwhelmed and out of control. But in this timely book, Judson Brewer explains how to uproot anxiety at its source using brain-based techniques and small hacks accessible to anyone.
We think of anxiety as everything from mild unease to full-blown panic. But it's also what drives the addictive behaviors and bad habits we use to cope (e.g. stress eating, procrastination, doom scrolling and social media). Plus, anxiety lives in a part of the brain that resists rational thought. So we get stuck in anxiety habit loops that we can't think our way out of or use willpower to overcome. Dr. Brewer teaches us map our brains to discover our triggers, defuse them with the simple but powerful practice of curiosity, and to train our brains using mindfulness and other practices that his lab has proven can work.
Distilling more than 20 years of research and hands-on work with thousands of patients, including Olympic athletes and coaches, and leaders in government and business, Dr. Brewer has created a clear, solution-oriented program that anyone can use to feel better - no matter how anxious they feel.
January 2010, Stephanie Nash was working with intense emotions that had begun to cause physical issues and asked Shinzen to guide her through working with them. She put a camera up thinking that others might benefit from whatever process he employed. (This has proven to be quite true - at least according to much feedback - since it is rare to capture someone actually having great emotional issues on camera with the experience being resolved in REAL TIME.)
Plus, here, the interviewee is an experienced meditator who has already applied many techniques & strategies and shares how they have worked for her, leading Shinzen to delve into an additional subtle but powerful & effective strategy.)
