A vivid imagination can help you tell compelling stories, but it can also cause anxiety.
That's because asking What If? and imagining the worst possible outcome works well to ratchet up conflict in stories.
In real life, though, it sends us spinning through endless negative outcomes. Often when we're lying awake at night, trying desperately to sleep.
But it doesn't have to be that way.
Happiness, Anxiety, and Writing shares ways to use your imagination and writing skills to create a calmer, happier life.
- Techniques to derail anxious thoughts you otherwise repeat;
- Ways to talk to yourself and others that promote calm rather than reinforce worry;
- Specific, targeted exercises to direct your creative mind and imagination in a positive way;
- How and when to write and rewrite the best parts of your life for greater happiness;
- And more.
Part memoir, part How To, Happiness, Anxiety, and Writing explains clear, simple steps to lower stress, solve problems, and increase happiness. It includes examples from the author's own journey from being gripped by anxiety to a more relaxed, healthier life.
