  • It is about viewing your shortcomings with compassion and your future with hope and optimism.
  • It is about learning from the past and living mindfully in the present, with an eye optimistically on the future.
  • It is about taking care of yourself in mind, body and spirit.

  • It is about being strong enough to risk appearing weak to ask for help and enlist support.
  • It is about rewriting your life story to one of courage, faith and resiliency.
  • It is about refusing to focus not on what you lost but more importantly, what you have left.

The book includes unique and engaging activities and exercises to help you put a stop to that nagging inner critic, overcome perfectionism, and develop lasting self-confidence. You’ll also discover ways to be more assertive, develop healthy relationships that support a healthy you, and cultivate an unshakable sense of optimism about yourself and your life.

The Anxiety and Stress Solution Deck: 55 TIPS and Tools for Managing Stress and Anxiety

Publisher: PESI Publishing

Preorder today!

This card deck has 55 simple yet powerful CBT strategies to manage stress and anxiety. Each card will offer a short Tip, followed by a Tool, or short activity to put that Tip into practice. The deck is divided by four main areas of CBT focus, which I refer to as the 4 C’s of CBT – Clarify Your Feelings, Challenge Your Thoughts, Change Your Behaviors, and Calming Strategies. The focus of CBT has traditionally focused on identifying the underlying thoughts causing both problems in mood and behavior. In more recent years, the Third Wave CBT treatments have extended the focus of CBT to include mindfulness. The focus of Mindfulness offers calming strategies through nonjudgmental, present-centered awareness and acceptance of what we can not change. When we are mindful, we are able to be more objective and calm, suspending judgments of how things should be or labelling things as good or bad.

These cards will help you build skills in the 4 C’s of CBT. Each of the four areas are color coded to make it easier to work on the skills you want at that moment. These cards can be a tool for therapists in working with clients individually, they are ideal for groups focused on developing life skills, and are easy enough to understand and for anyone looking for hands on skills to manage their own stress and anxiety.

Whether you selectively pick one or more cards a day to focus on or pick them out of a jar randomly, these TIPS and Tools offer a go to place whenever you want to practice CBT skills to manage stress and anxiety. Keep revisiting the cards that you need extra work on, to help support you in mastering new skills. In short these cards will help you manage your stress and anxiety rather than have them manage you!
