More Description


A brief, outspoken introduction to the meaning and history of anxiety and neuroscientific advice for sufferers

Anxiety .... it's the worst. Choking, stifling, smothering, tingling, panicking, brain cutting out, bad decisions... You're a human being, so you know exactly what's being said here. Dr. Faith lays it all out in her five-minute therapy series: what anxiety IS (did you know that people wrote about it more in the 1800s than now?), what it's good for (that's right, it's actually a necessary response that helps to keep us alive in bad situations), how to know when it's gone overboard, and practical tips on how to deal with anxiety when it gets bad. This book is a lifesaver for panic attacks, breaking out of flight-or-fight-or-freeze responses, and for chronic anxiety. It's also good for folks who aren't burdened by anxiety daily but want to cope better with those tough life situations that affect us all. Read this and breathe

Note: The original Anxiety zine became a Dr. Faith's book Unfuck Your Brain; this book version of This Is Your Brain on Anxiety is greatly expanded and has about 30% new content that is different than what was in the original zine or book chapter.
