Did you know that journaling can have physical, emotional, and mental health benefits? Research shows that expressive writing can actually strengthen the immune system, lower blood pressure, and release physical tension in our bodies. Writing about our thoughts and feelings can help us clear our minds, release pent-up feelings, ease everyday tension, and let go of negative thoughts and worries.
If you're struggling with anxiety or stress, this journal can help you find instant calm, increase your self-awareness, and enhance your overall well-being. Written by a psychotherapist and guided journaling expert, and grounded in evidence-based therapy, the creative prompts in this beautiful journal are combined with space for you to write, draw, make lists, compose letters, and write down reflections.
Also included are sensory-based activities, such as outdoor walks, listening to music, breathwork, calming scents, and more. If you're looking for therapy that doesn't feel like therapy, pick up this journal, write down your worries, let go of stress, and find lasting peace of mind.
“This book provides actionable exercises to help readers of any age to overcome anxiety. Instead of reading dry text, the reader is asked to complete ‘fill in the blank’ exercises throughout the book. Learning by doing is a powerful approach. Many self-help books have exercises, but Put Your Anxiety Here is unique in offering a variety of easy-to-do exercises cover to cover.”
—Edmund J. Bourne, PhD, former director of The Anxiety Treatment Center in Santa Rosa, CA; and author of The Anxiety and Phobia Workbook
“Successful therapy is hard work, typically provided by seeing a therapist. Lisa Schab’s journal provides what it promises: a gentle but direct alternative approach to find calm. Schab makes it fun and provides a process toward self-awareness and goal attainment. ‘Therapy that doesn’t look like therapy.’ I think it’s a valuable addition to any professional treatment plan, leaving the feeling, you did it.”
—Ronald D. Groat, MD, board-certified psychiatrist, and past president of the Minnesota Psychiatric Society
“Lisa Schab’s book is a must-have for mental health clinicians. The book consists primarily of well-designed worksheets that engage the client in their own healing. Clients acquire a sense of control over their emotional well-being as they secure a set of mental health tools to be used throughout their lifetime. The book is grounded in sound psychological theory, backed by extensive experience, and best of all—it works!”
—Lynn R. Moosman, MA, LCPC, psychotherapist, supervisor of graduate students at The Family Institute at Northwestern University, and former director of clinical services at Youth & Family Counseling
