An empowering how-to guide to managing anxiety and limiting the harmful effects worry and stress can have on the body. Worry can take a toll on the body as well as the mind—from weight gain and hair loss to irritable bowel syndrome and nausea, excessive anxiety can upset the natural balance of a person’s body, leaving them with a weakened immune system and susceptible to illness. Worried Sick examines the patterns of worry—and offers practical strategies on how to kick the habit and restore well-being, covering topics such as: • Proven techniques for staying unworried and centered • Exercises that relax tense muscles and unwind the mind • How to identify and avoid toxic people and information that encourages anxiety • Mantras and “thought blockers” to use to prevent negativity from taking over • Which serotonin-boosting foods to reach for and which stress-inducing foods to resist Worried Sick takes a holistic approach to coping with the circumstances and situations that give rise to anxiety and the symptoms that often result, so that readers can start experiencing a better quality of life.
