Show 178 - Books and Workbooks to Help with Anxiety

In this episode,  I want to share specific analog paper-based apps known as books or workbooks that might help you with your anxiety symptoms or help you manage your condition.

Not all anxiety books and workbooks are the same or are intended for everybody. Some are academic, some are low brow and some are task specific. This is a heads up on what to be aware of and some of your choices.

If you need support contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255, the Trevor Project at 1-866-488-7386 or text “START” to 741-741.
