A Practical Guide with Activities to Help You Break Out of Depression and Anxiety
Are you feeling stressed out, anxious, and alone? Do you stay up at night wondering if it will all work out? And how will you handle it when it doesn’t? Do you double down on your efforts to be smart enough, cool enough, able enough, only to make everything worse? Is anxiety sucking the life out of you?

This workbook shows you the way out. Learn to build trust in your skills and abilities so you can create your own life instead of being a passive recipient of it. Learn how to get rid of anxiety, let go of perfectionism, and experience lasting happiness.
