SEE YOUR ANXIETY IN A NEW LIGHT

Mental health is a huge issue in our society. While the medical model of anxiety has helped some break free from their worries, it’s also left a lot of us in the dark.

Never-ending prescriptions and weekly visits to the psychiatrist aren’t the only potential courses of action when it comes to mental health. We can also come to understand the power of our thoughts and begin to take responsibility for them.

In Get Out of Your Head, you’ll discover how to do just that. Through the latest research, personal anecdotes, and a heavy dose of practicality, you’ll learn:

  • Where anxiety comes from and how to stop perpetuating it
  • 10 crucial steps for mitigating anxiety during stressful situations
  • How to leverage fear into a vehicle for personal growth
  • How to stop fighting yourself and start living again

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Though I wrote the book for anyone looking for an alternative, drug-free framework for managing their anxiety, the stories and strategies in it are geared toward critical thinkers and over-analyzers. Though I think anyone dealing with mental illness will find the book helpful, it may resonate more deeply with those in software development or technology.

Anxiety is a product of our body’s innate responses to the things that scare us and the thoughts we have in reaction to those things. If we can learn to look at those thoughts differently or even change them, we’ll be able to mitigate anxiety whenever it comes knocking. The book, then, is an exploration into this concept and a fleshing out of ideas and strategies that help us achieve such a feat.

 

Everyone is different. As such, I can’t promise the material is right or not for you. However, if you answer “yes” to several of the following questions, I think you might find the book helpful:

Do you wish you had a simple, repeatable set of steps for getting yourself out of states of acute anxiety?
Are you open to practical, drug-free strategies for dealing with your mental health?
Do you not know where to turn next?

 

I’m not a doctor or mental health professional. I’m just someone who’s been through the same things you have. For more than ten years, I’ve lived with Generalized Anxiety Disorder. Throughout those ten years, I’ve developed, and put into practice, countless strategies that have helped me get my anxiety under control. Though I am not formally trained in medicine, I think my experiences are relatable and my strategies will resonate with you.
