The Ultimate Anxiety Workbook Seeks To
help you develop an understanding of what anxiety is, a plan to combat the symptoms and education for you to use to keep your mental health stable.
Personally, I have struggled with anxiety, specifically while gaining higher education. I finally opened up to my primary physician and learned that I had acute anxiety (like a mild diagnosis of generalized anxiety disorder).
I would panic when in social situations often isolating and I would be incredibly quiet. I would have an increase in heart rate, sweating and occasionally I would get headaches. I would worry about ANY and EVERYTHING! So much so, I would often stay alone or around a close nit of friends.
Anxiety prevented me from doing things that came so easily to others. I would struggle to speak in crowds, stand up for myself, or even be around a large amount of people. I would get headaches, my appetite would disappear and I would disappear right along with it.
When my anxiety became severe I knew it was time to do something. I had made it through basic education and did quite well. This did not reflect into my higher education years! I struggled! Yes, me, a future counselor could not take hold of her anxiety and prevent it from taking over.
In my early 20’s this is what my anxiety looked like. Fake smiles, “my life is great”, all of those achievement cords and on graduation day no less. On this day I decided that I could not go on feeling this way. I could not go to grad school continuing this way!
Eventually, I learned a way to cope with all of my symptoms and manage my anxiety! I went to therapy (still go), practiced the skills I learned and found what works for me! The things I learned, researched and experienced helped me to create the Ultimate Anxiety Workbook.
I took some of this information and made blog post that gave you a little information of each aspect of anxiety like how to cope, how to use mindfulness, how journaling helps with anxiety, and so much more.
The difference between my post on the blog and the Ultimate Anxiety Workbook is that it is full of information and activities for you to use with the goal of jump starting your recovery. I took all of the beginner skills and tips relating to anxiety and compiled them into this workbook for your use!

“I was one of the first people to go through this workbook. Jess very kindly let me beta test it. This workbook Jess has created will be extremely helpful for people struggling with anxiety. I was diagnosed with anxiety 4.5 years ago, and I found it helpful. Jess provides great examples, space to put your own story and answers, loads of helpful tips.

I love that this has been put together by someone with personal experience of anxiety. It’s much easier to absorb information when I’m interacting with it, so I found the workbook format very helpful. I was learning more about myself and my anxiety as I went through the activities. The questions in the workbook prompted me to review my coping strategies and notice which ones aren’t so helpful. I’ve also looked at my triggers and used the workbook to make a list of healthy coping skills reminders.
