The Anxiety Sisters’ Survival Guide:
How You Can Become More Hopeful, Connected, and Happy
A warm and practical guide to coping with anxiety – and finding ways to laugh anyway. Abs and Mags, aka the Anxiety Sisters, have spent the past thirty years figuring out how to outsmart their anxiety-ridden brains, and the last five years sharing what they’ve learned with a growing online community of like-minded sufferers who are looking for ways to cope better. Whether you’re looking to better understand and manage panic, worry, grief, stress, or phobias, or just want to pause the endless spin cycle in your head, you’ll find real-world, research-based techniques, exercises, and insights‚ without the clinical, confusing, one-size-fits-all approach that isn’t so helpful when your mind is racing and you just want to get back to feeling normal. This is a handbook for fighting Shrinking World Syndrome – that isolating, lonely feeling that comes from letting your anxiety run the show. The stories and suggestions in this book will remind you that you’re not alone. You don’t have to eliminate anxiety from your life in order to feel okay and, yes, even happy.
Abbe Greenberg (professor of communication) and Maggie Sarachek (social worker) are the creators of the Anxiety Sisters, a worldwide online community that provides emotional support and evidence-based strategies for anxiety sufferers through their popular blog, podcast, workshops, and coaching services. The sister duo have tried every technique out there to manage their own anxiety, and continues to learn, share, and laugh about it.
