Have you ever felt anxious? Have those intense feelings ever made you want to crawl into a hole in the fetal position or alternatively punch someone in the face? If so you're not alone.
When we experience big complex feelings our body tells us to react. Since you are after all part of the animal kingdom your body doesn't always know the difference between a giant monster coming to eat you and giving a presentation to your peers and this triggers your brain to "freak out."
This book offers twenty-four wacky totally-rooted-in-neuroscience ways to stop freaking out. Get your brain to detach from the big scary feelings when deep breathing just won't cut it.
Effects of this book may include: laughter feeling "super calm and chill " and even like you can actually continue adulting for the rest of your day. Give it a try. I mean after all it's cheaper than an hour of therapy.

Erin Pash is a marriage and family therapist. She was raised in the Twin Cities but prefers to stay in the suburban loop due to increased traffic anxiety (this book helps her to make it to things in the "big city"). Erin is co-owner of Ellie Family Services and her life's mission is to make getting help more fun accessible and creative. Erin does the whole mom thing when she's not working and has a flair for human anatomy art and golf. This book is very near and dear to Erin because if anything at the end of the day she wants people to feel better just the way they are.
