Über dieses Produkt
- Kurzbeschreibung"Drawing on extensive social psychology research, and the author's training and clinical experience in Cognitive-Behavioral therapy, The Anxiety Toolkit offers actionable strategies that anyone can use to manage their anxiety--both personal and professional. Anxious people often think a great deal about why they think and behave the way they do. They seek self-improvement information yet often get stuck in applying it. They read popular self-help books for anxiety, but these books are highly simplified,to the extent readers can't make the leap from the examples in the books to their more complex real world problems. They turn to business books because they're motivated to achieve greater success, but since these books don't address the reasons anxious people get stuck, they're not especially helpful. The Anxiety Toolkit provides the information anxious people look for but can't find. It draws on extensive social psychology research, and the author's training and clinical experience in Cognitive-Behavioral psychology, addressing the core problems that impede people who are anxious--inhibition, biased thinking, rumination, intolerance of uncertainty, excessive responsibility taking, self-criticism, perfectionism, and avoidance coping--and providing readers with the tools to manage these tendencies"--

- Leseprobe<br>PART 1<br>Understanding Yourself and Your Anxiety<br>CHAPTER 1<br>How Anxiety Works<br>Does any of this sound familiar?<br>- You overthink before taking action.<br>- You're prone to making negative predictions.<br>- You worry about the worst that could happen.<br>- You take negative feedback very hard.<br>- You're self-critical.<br>- Anything less than extraordinary performance feels like failure.<br>If yes, you're not alone, and you're probably suffering from some degree of anxiety. Anxiety is an emotional state characterized by feelings of worry, nervousness, and unease. Anxiety disorders affect 40 million Americans over the age of 18, and "everyday anxiety" affects a far greater number.1<br>Based on research, we know that similar psychological mechanisms underlie all types and degrees of anxiety, even if forms of anxiety can look very different on the surface. No matter how your anxiety manifests itself, you'll find the information you're about to read relevant and useful, whether you have an anxiety disorder or are, like me, just anxiety-prone by nature.<br>How Anxiety Works<br>Anxiety shows up as a variety of symptoms, from behavioral and emotional to physical and cognitive (which just means thoughts). No anxious person has the exact same set of symptoms, but everyone has some of each type. See the table on the next page for examples of each component.<br>Although anxiety can sometimes seem like a flaw, it's actually an evolutionary advantage, a hypervigilance system that causes us to pause and scan the environment. Feeling anxious triggers us to start looking out for potential threats. If you detect a potential danger, it's not supposed to be easy for you to stop thinking about that threat. While that's great when you're a caveman worried about protecting your family, it's not as great when you're an employee convinced you're getting fired.<br>For many of us who suffer from anxiety, our anxiety alarms fire too often when there isn't a good reason to be excessively cautious. Why does this happen? We may have more sensitive anxiety systems. Or we may have been doing things to decrease our anxiety in the short term, such as avoiding things that make us feel anxious, that have actually increased it in the long term.<br>Having some false anxiety alarms-where you see threats that don't exist or worry about things that don't eventuate-isn't a defect in your system. Think of it in caveman terms: In a life-and-death sense, failing to notice a real threat (termed a false negative ) is more of a problem than registering a potential danger that doesn't happen (termed a false positive ). Therefore, having some false anxiety alarms is a built-in part of the system, to err on the side of caution
