The self help guide, 7-Day Anxiety Challenge: Reduce Your Anxiety in 7 Days, is a Challenge Self publication. Those who suffer from one or more of the many forms of anxiety are addressed in this how-to guide, which outlines the clear advantages of trying to conquer your anxiety without the use of antidepressant medication, and steering you towards a more holistic approach to managing the crippling effects of an anxiety attack. Meditation, yoga, herbal teas, diet and more are investigated as you retrain your brain in how it relates to things, rather than resorting to being a ‘slave’ to the pharmaceutical companies, which reap billions of profit from your diagnosis. This guide gives you a one week trial period in a more cost effective way of taking back your life and owning it once more.
Although geared towards American audiences (in the use of American-based holidays and films as examples throughout), 7-Day Anxiety Challenge would ideally benefit people worldwide. As a sufferer of Agoraphobia with Panic Disorder, PTSD, Depression and more, I am all-too-familiar with the terror, breathlessness, and the dizzying sweats which strike when you least expect it, whether it be in a public or private setting. Reading through Challenge Self’s detailed guide on how to keep the panic at bay was an interesting experience all on its own, daring me to look deep within myself, all while trying to control the feelings of panic which threaten to jump out and unleash themselves on an unsuspecting crowd. I found one part of the book to be a personal trigger (as it uses a spider as an example, thrusting my inner demon to leap into my tidal wave of panic called arachnophobia), but learning to deal with those things which cause the panic is the key ingredient in unlocking the secrets of why it sends you into such a tailspin at the drop of a hat. I found 7-Day Anxiety Challenge to be insightful, well-written, and recommend it to readers of all ages worldwide who suffer from the crippling effects which anxiety can bring.
