An accessible, comforting and practical book for anyone experiencing anxiety, from the author of The Recovery Letters and How to Tell Depression to Piss Off.
Despite more and more people opening up about their mental health, anxiety is still taboo. We're not supposed to be anxious; we're supposed to be resilient and able to 'get on with it'. We are expected to excel while juggling a hectic, pressurised schedule at home and at work, despite the lines between the two being more blurred than ever.
This book dispels that taboo. It is for anyone who has experienced general anxiety disorder, trauma-related anxiety, clinical anxiety and those with 'low-level' anxieties.
At once empathetic and entertaining, How to Tell Anxiety to Sod Off offers 40 ways to get to a better place with anxiety. They are born out of the author's personal experience of managing his own anxiety and his many years of working as a counselor helping people with their mental health.
James takes a super-serious message and delivers it with a twinkle in his eye. You end up accidentally learning loads of stuff
There are two notable elements to this book. Firstly, the entertaining and self-deprecating (and funny) but personal style of writing means that it is easy to connect with the author, and not see him as a preachy guru from on high. Secondly, the book is packed with solid advice for how we can relate to our anxiety in way that still allows us to live our best life. Highly recommended
