The information you ingest can make or break your recovery from anxiety. We know how important your time is. Therefore it should never be wasted on poor quality content. This article will outline five truly helpful books. The pieces of literature that have helped, and continue to help millions.

How to Stop Worrying and Start Living Cover

This is a book that contains a stunning amount of fantastic advise. It is the kind of book you can, and probably should, read ten times. You will come away with something new and equally profound every time.

Every chapter recounts several intriguing stories to prove a concept. Each with immense practical usage. Dale was truly a master of crafting insightful anecdotes.

I believe that no amount of praise can do this book justice. It has the potential to change your life, just as it did mine.

“The Anxiety and Worry Workbook” by David A. Clark and Aaron T. Beck

The Anxiety and Worry Workbook Cover

Co-authored by two giants of modern psychotherapy. One of whom – Aaron T. Beck – is credited as the father of cognitive therapy.

In perhaps the ultimate book on CBT self-therapy, drs. Clark and Beck outline a clear path from anxiety to recovery. It consists of a staggering amount of concise information. But the real power of this book comes from the exercises it includes. The reader is consistently asked and guided to make use of the information provided.

If you are ready to take your anxiety recovery from 0 to 60 mph, this is the exact book for you.

Feeling Good Cover

If there is one book you will likely find on every mental health self-help list, this is it. But it has achieved that honor for good reason.

Although often cited as a book for the depressed, Feeling Good is equally valueable for the anxious.

A definite must read for anyone who is interested in integrating CBT in their recovery. (And let’s be real, you should be).

The Anxiety and Phobia Workbook Cover

Packed full with essential information, skills, and exercises. Bourne’s influential book will give you a whole new perspective, and open your eyes to exactly what anxiety is.

You will struggle to find a more holistic workbook. When followed, this book will teach you how to eliminate anxiety through changes to every aspect of your life.
There is simply very little that it does not touch upon.

“Dare” by Barry McDonagh

Dare Cover

What “Dare” lacks in scope, it makes up for in being very specific and understandable.

It promotes a form of self-therapy that I have a great affinity for personally. It teaches us exactly how to accept and befriend our anxiety disorders. A necessary step in recovery. Barry has managed to not pull any punches while still writing in a highly sympathetic language. Making this book not only extremely helpful, but also a very pleasant read.

If you wish for a very simple and effective way to reduce anxiety, you do not need to search any further. A great addition to any mental health collection.
