The Worry Workbook: CBT Skills to Overcome Worry and Anxiety by Facing the Fear of Uncertainty by Melisa Robichaud
Written by two psychologists and experts in anxiety, The Worry Workbook provides powerful, evidence based tips and tools to help you challenge your fears, build a tolerance for uncertainty, and find relief from worry.
Are you plagued by persistent worry? Do you have trouble making everyday decisions? Are you a perfectionist exhausted from trying to meet unreasonably high standards? Do you procrastinate important tasks? All of these problems could be caused by the same thing: an intolerance for uncertainty in the face of new challenges or unpredictable outcomes.
Everyone worries from time to time-it's unavoidable. But chronic worrying, anxiety, and fear can also take a hefty toll on your health, happiness, and relationships. If you're someone who worries about what might happen if you try something new, you aren't alone! Many people lose sleep over what ifs-leading to difficulty making decisions, avoiding new situations, trouble with relationships, and missing out on life's adventures! So, how can you overcome this fear and start living your best life?
While there are many self-help books and workbooks that tackle worry and anxiety, The Worry Workbook is the first to provide guidance for overcoming the fear of uncertainty. With this guide, you'll find concrete exercises and step-by-step instructions to help you identify your fear of uncertainty-whatever it is-and challenge it using powerful cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) practices like self-assessment, self-monitoring, and behavioral experiments.
Chronic worrying can affect all aspects of your life. This book will help you target your fears and worries, tolerate uncertainty, and trust your own judgment and abilities in the face of doubt.
