"Langer speaks from hard-won experience in her valuable, heartfelt manual on curbing excessive worrying. Langer's frank and empathetic tone will comfort readers, as will the practical steps she teaches." --Publishers Weekly (BookLife)
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 healthy relationships that blossom and thrive
-FULFILL their dreams through positive thinking
-SERVE others in their personal growth
Regardless of the situation, Worry Less Now will help you gain peace, clarity, and wisdom.
