Calm Anxiety Healing

Anxiety Definition:-

The Collins English Dictionary describes anxiety as "a state of uneasiness or tension caused by apprehension of possible misfortune, danger etc."

And to be anxious is to be "worried and tense."

Latin anxietas gave anxiety in English; the base is Latin anxius, from angere 'to choke'.



"An illness that disrupts normal physical or mental functions."

(Medical model definition)

Anxiety disorders are characterized by significant feelings of anxiety and fear.


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 of danger.

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 '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.

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.

Persistant stressful situations such as conflict in the family, at school or at work and worries over relationships, money or health can make us feel insecure and vulnerable for much of the time. And these are situations that we cannot avoid, fight our way out of or flee from. They happen frequently and regularly, and each time our anxiety rises just that little bit more.

For many of us, this is how anxiety builds up... slowly and silently...



Calm Anxiety... offers a totally new way to understand and deal with the increased anxiety that plagues so many of us today. It reveals how we become so anxious and shows how to transform this anxiety into confidence.

Part I  examines the current beliefs and theories about anxiety-related problems and how these influence not only everything we believe about our anxiety but also what we think about ourself.

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 problems.

Part III  guides you step-by-step how to remove the fear, stop the anxiety and restore high self-esteem.

Going to the Heart of the Matter

This is a very helpful book for the anxious among us. It is not a CBT or ACT book. 'Calm anxiety' has a distinct approach to anxiety. In fact, the book covers it all: the fight-or-flight response, neural connections, upbringing and beliefs, gradual automation, acceptance of feelings and so forth. Dixon beautifully ties it all together.
Most books on anxiety, like the ones based on CBT and ACT, have 'techniques' as their core. 'Calm anxiety', however, goes deeper. It focuses on the way we were 'conditioned' to believe we are not good enough. Here is were the book goes further than other books. The core feeling of not being good enough is addressed. Dixon emphasizes that it is important to say to yourself that there are good reasons for you to feel the way you do. This is acceptance and stops fighting anxious feelings. Furthermore, you now know that you have been conditioned to believe that you are defective in some way. Therefore, the anxious feelings do not have the same meaning any more. You always were good. This is the central idea in the book, which is elaborated. A highly recommendable read. Concise, though all encompassing.
I have had a few therapies and read numerous books on the topic. For me, this one stands out because it goes to the heart of the matter.   (Amazon Review)
