50 WAYS to WORRY LESS NOW
Reject Negative Thinking to Find Peace, Clarity, and Connection
by Gigi Langer, PhD
Thirty years ago, Gigi Langer was a prisoner of her worries who used alcohol, romance, and professional accomplishments to soothe her frayed nerves. After studying and applying tools from recovery programs, scientific research, and a variety of philosophical and spiritual teachings, she stopped drinking and discovered how to overcome her own anxieties and stress.
Worry Less Now offers four life strategies and 50 eclectic tools to dissolve the “whispered lies” of negative self-talk. Although many books address negative thinking, very few give the reader step-by-step directions on how to defeat it. Others simply advocate a single approach.
Regardless of the situation, Worry Less Now will help you gain peace, clarity, and wisdom.

How are the reviews?
“I loved the simplicity and the host of quickly adopted suggestions. They grabbed my attention and wouldn’t let go. This book is a winner.” – Karen Casey, best-selling recovery author
“This book comes from an author who is personally as well as professionally familiar with her topic. Plenty of books advocate countering negative thinking; but too few actually provide step-by-step measures on how to do so. Others simply choose a singular path and follow it. The pleasure of 50 Ways to Worry Less Now lies in its examples, specific exercises, and injections of how the author used various routines to find her way out of negativity. Highly recommended for anyone who worries too much, lives too hard a life, and searches for a better way.” – D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
“Her honesty will blow you away! It is beautifully written; filled with humor and authenticity. A fresh, honest tutorial on growing into your true, healthy self.” –Member of Al Anon
