- Be Calm: Proven Techniques to stop Anxiety Now”-
Jill Weber, Ph.D., a D.C.-area clinical psychologist, dives deep into the science behind anxiety, your emotions, and their physical ramifications on the body. Most importantly, she shows you how to use this knowledge to help you spot and deal with racing thoughts, worst-case scenario thinking, or a self-defeating mentality, all of which may prompt you to behave in ways that reinforce anxiety.
Her techniques tap evidence-based methods, including cognitive behavioural therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, and mindfulness. “My clients who use these methods tell me that although they are still aware of their worried thoughts, those thoughts no longer have the same power over them,” Weber writes.

3. “10% Happier: How I Tamed the voice in my head”-
Dan Harris teaches the art of the mini-meditation for skeptics. He was once a skeptic, too: The news anchor had a panic attacks on air—and it was finding meditation that brought him back from the brink and hurling toward happiness. He says that mindfulness meditation can quiet that inner voice (the one that’s telling you to do more and be more at the expense of all else) while still being a productive go-getter. If mindfulness seems a bit out there for you, you’ll not only relate to the stories Harris shares but also learn a lot about making peace with that inner critical voice.
4. “It’s not supposed to be this way: Finding unexpected strength hen disappointments leaves you shattered”-
This is a book you’ll want to turn to when you’re trying to navigate your Christian faith while being dealt a rough hand in life.

But I’m never comfortable with the fact that I can’t grab the wheel and drive it back to Normal,” she writes. She teaches you to trust the process—not the outcome—and that’s a very big lesson you’ll call upon for the rest of your life.
