Praise for 50 Ways to Worry Less Now
“Langer's frank and empathetic tone will comfort readers, as will the practical steps she teaches in this tome.” --Featured Book, Publishers Weekly (BookLife)
“I've become reluctant to recommend personal growth books to my clients because so few seem to focus on taking action. Worry Less Now is different. Rather than setting herself up as the authority, it's clear that she works the strategies and tools as part of her ongoing growth. She comes across as warm, humorous, approachable, accepting, credible, and sincerely invested in the personal growth of her readers.” --Christine McCully, LMC, MA.
About 50 Ways to Worry Less Now
Thirty years ago, Gigi Langer was a prisoner of her worries who used alcohol, romance, and professional accomplishments to soothe her frayed nerves. When she stopped drinking, she began applying tools from therapy, recovery programs, scientific research, and a variety of philosophical and spiritual teachings to overcome her anxieties and stress.
Worry Less Now offers four life strategies and 50 eclectic tools to dissolve the whispered lies of negative self-talk. Although many books address negative thinking, very few give the reader step-by-step directions on how to defeat it. Others simply advocate a single approach.
With candor and humor, Langer describes a wide variety of strategies that helped her and others defeat dysfunctional relationships, perfectionism, addiction, and worry about loved ones. As an award-winning writer and professor, Langer skillfully shares compelling stories and exercises that empower readers to:
-MANAGE life's most difficult challenges with calm wisdom
-CREATE relationships that blossom and thrive
-FULFILL your dreams without limitations
-SERVE others in their personal growth
Regardless of the situation, you'll be able to gain peace, clarity, and wisdom.
