From the Publisher

Are you truly in danger or has your brain simply "tricked" you into thinking you are? In The Worry Trick, psychologist and anxiety expert David Carbonell shows how anxiety hijacks the brain and offers effective techniques to help you break the cycle of worry, once and for all.
Anxiety is a powerful force. It makes us question ourselves and our decisions, causes us to worry about the future, and fills our days with dread and emotional turbulence. Based in acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), this book is designed to help you break the cycle of worry.
Worry convinces us there's danger, and then tricks us into getting into fight, flight, or freeze mode—even when there is no danger. The techniques in this book, rather than encouraging you to avoid or try to resist anxiety, shows you how to see the trick that underlies your anxious thoughts, and how avoidance can backfire and make anxiety worse.
If you’re ready to start observing your anxious feelings with distance and clarity—rather than getting tricked once again—this book will show you how.

    PATRICK GOMEZ A few days after Thanksgiving, Eva Amurri Martino was awakened by the piercing scream of her infant son Major James. “Our night nurse fell asleep while holding [then-1-month-old] Major and dropped him, and he cracked his head on the hardwood floor,” the actress, 31, wrote on her website happilyevaafter.com on Jan. 1. Major suffered a fractured skull and bleeding on his brain. “To say those were the most traumatic and anxious two days of my life is an understatement,” she said, adding that Major is now “completely fine.” “The guilt I bore in the days and weeks after this accident

    This Is Why Americans Are Irrationally Anxious About Terrorism

    On September 11, 2001 I was living and teaching in Providence, Rhode Island, a town that is on the short flight path between Boston, where terrorists boarded two passenger airliners, and New York, where these planes were flown into the twin towers of the World Trade Center. In the following days, the whole campus seemed convulsed with grief; professors broke down weeping at their podiums and students huddled together, consoling one another. I remember these days as some of the most intensely emotional ones of my life. Almost a decade and a half has passed since then, and the rawness of that em

    A Tiny Spot In Mouse Brains May Explain How Breathing Calms The Mind

    Take a deep breath in through your nose, and slowly let it out through your mouth. Do you feel calmer? Controlled breathing like this can combat anxiety, panic attacks and depression. It's one reason so many people experience tranquility after meditation or a pranayama yoga class. How exactly the brain associates slow breathing with calmness and quick breathing with nervousness, though, has been a mystery. Now, researchers say they've found the link, at least in mice. The key is a smattering of about 175 neurons in a part of the brain the researchers call the breathing pacemaker, which is a cl
