No Worries – How to deal with teenage anxiety

Many people get too anxious about anxiety. They treat it as though there’s something wrong with them. But No Worries shows you the truth: that anxiety is a normal, natural and even healthy human reaction. It keeps us alert, strong, safe and successful but letting us know when there’s something in our environment that we need to look out for.

The trouble comes when that alert button is too active and we feel anxious when we don’t need to: when we’re trying to relax or go to sleep, or when we’re just trying to get through the day and succeed in our work, social activities or any aspect of life.

NO WORRIES is the brilliant, science-based, reassuring and practical answer. It shows you that anxiety is just like a guard dog that needs some good training to keep it under control.

In three sections, you’ll learn everything you need, whatever age you are:

  1. Anxiety and YOU. Where are you on the anxiety scale? Is it a big problem for you or just an occasional one? What do you have going on in your life that is anxiety-inducing? How do you compare with other people? What are the physical and mental signs for you?
  2. What is anxiety? What’s the biology? What’s going on in our bodies and brains? What’s normal? What are the signs that anxiety is becoming a problem, and even an illness?
  3. Brilliant strategies that WORK. Over 100 things you can do and how to choose which to try. Special symbols show you which are best for prevention and which for intervention; which are best for real relaxing and which are best for distraction.

With quizzes, facts, ideas and Nicola Morgan’s trademark reassuring, unpatronising voice, this is the only guide you need to manage your anxiety guard dog.
