A comfortable opening to self-soothing and calm . . .

Put Your Anxiety Here: A Creative Guided Journal to Relieve Stress & Find Calm is the third in an innovative new series that provides effective, evidence-based tools for managing emotional health issues without carrying the stigma that so often deters people from seeking help. The Instant Help Guided Journal Series offers “therapy that doesn’t look like therapy!”

More than 80 engaging journaling prompts in Put Your Anxiety Here invite you to write, draw, collage, meditate, breathe, reflect, listen to music, take walks, and more – all creative, and evidence-based ways to relieve anxiety in the moment. You can relax right now while learning valuable coping skills to carry into the future. This book is a great tool for both individuals on their own and as an adjunct to therapy.

Research explains that journaling can help us clear our minds, release pent-up feelings, ease tension, and let go of negative thoughts and worries – as well as strengthen our immune systems, lower blood pressure, and release physical tension in our bodies. This journal offers a non-threatening tool to begin writing your way to calm.

“I LOVE this book . . . It is wise, practical, creative, and healing. . .I especially value the holistic approach involving breathing, movement, drawing, music, and imagination . . . I wish I had it for my clients when I began my practice years ago!”

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.’”

-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!
