(Chad LeJeune, PhD) – Recommended by Julia Somody
Do you ever find yourself awake, late at night, unable to sleep because you are worrying? Often what may have started out as a small concern becomes larger as worry about it until it feels incredibly overwhelming to tackle. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a relatively new, but highly effective, approach to dealing with stress, chronic anxiety and worrying. In a nutshell, ACT blends the principles of awareness, acceptance and action to help us move past our anxiety and live more meaningful lives. I really like this book because it is short and easy to read (only 189 pages!) and is filled with practical activities that demonstrate ways to reduce stress and worry as well as build skills in time management, assertiveness and problem-solving.
