Calm Anxiety: Taking Back Control
How to Understand and Deal with Anxiety
Why am I more anxious than my friends and colleagues?
Why do I get so scared in certain situations?
What is wrong with me?
Anxiety feels awful. The speeding heart and rapid breathing, the sweating, trembling, feeling 'on-edge' and that sense of impending danger
are all extremely powerful – they descend upon us without warning and we cannot seem to stop them. These thoughts, feelings and
behaviours, over which we have virtually no control, affect us deeply.
Such powerful feelings and so little control – it's no wonder that anxiety can be seen as an awful problem, a terrible weakness,
something that has to be eradicated from our lives at all cost.
Yet anxiety is a vital part of being human. Indeed, every living creature on the planet has its own form of anxiety, its very own
built-in self-protection instinct.
Essentially to help us survive, to keep us alive, anxiety sits quietly in the background waiting to spring into action when needed in times
So why do I get anxious when there is no danger?
Why do I have more anxiety than others?
What can I do about it?
When the answer to these questions involves labels such as 'disorder' and 'mental illness' and provides treatments that
offer no real control, it's easy to be drawn into a self-defeating belief system about anxiety – one that only makes it worse.
But it doesn't have to be like this.
For if we look at anxiety through the lens of evolution and survival, and see how it rises up to protect us as a result of new,
modern-day threats (some of which didn't even exist just a generation ago), a very different picture emerges.
It's not one of 'dis-order' or 'mental illness' because of something going wrong in the brain, but that of a normal, healthy person with a
normal, healthy mind, being conditioned into a state of anxiety due to personal experience with some of the unique threats to self-acceptance
and feeling safe that are present in society today.
And the answer lies in understanding these threats and how they cause our anxiety to increase.
Calm Anxiety... offers a totally new way to understand and deal with
the increased anxiety that plagues so many of us.
It reveals how anxiety starts to grow quietly and slowly (but surely) in a totally normal person until it gets out of control... and shows
how to use this insight to stop the process and reduce high anxiety completely, permanently and naturally.
Part I examines the current beliefs and theories about anxiety problems and how they
influence everything we believe about our anxiety and our self. These beliefs shape not only the problem but our whole
Part II explores anxiety through the lens of human evolution and survival. What is
it? Why do we have it? How does it work? Here, you'll discover the truth about anxiety today and why so many people are developing
Part III shows you how to remove all the unnecessary anxiety and fear from your life
naturally, using the way anxiety works and the way our mind works... the way nature intended.
