You can't just "get over" anxiety. In fact, the very things most people do to try to feel better—avoiding feared situations, pushing worry out of mind—only make the problem worse. Leading psychologists Susan M. Orsillo and Lizabeth Roemer present a powerful new alternative that can help you break free of anxiety by fundamentally changing how you relate to it. With clarity and compassion, this book describes clinically tested mindfulness practices specifically tailored for anxiety in its many forms. Learn step-by-step strategies for gaining awareness of anxious feelings without letting them escalate; loosening the grip of worry and fear; and achieving a new level of emotional and physical well-being. Free audio downloads of mindfulness exercises plus other resources are available at the authors' website

"Potentially of great benefit to anyone suffering from anxiety in this era of relentless drivenness, social isolation, stress, and perpetual digital distraction. The authors' wise counsel based on their own clinical experience and research, coupled with vivid stories of their own and other people's lives, provide compelling evidence for why mindfulness is so important in reclaiming your life, and effective guidance in how to go about it in meaningful and very practical ways."

-Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD, coauthor of The Mindful Way Through Depression

"Anxiety is an emotion that begs us to mishandle it through worry and rumination. In a careful, step-by-step fashion, Drs. Orsillo and Roemer show you how to use mindfulness to break free from the grip of anxiety and move forward now toward the kind of life you want to live."

-Steven C. Hayes, PhD, author of Get Out of Your Mind and Into Your Life

"Whether you suffer from milder worries or a clinical disorder, this book shows you a clear, scientifically validated path toward feeling better. Lots of books propose to teach how to beat anxiety. Some are good, others less so. The Mindful Way through Anxiety is destined to be one of the best. Drs. Orsillo and Roemer are renowned experts in the science of beating anxiety, and their book is readable, informative, and practical."

-David F. Tolin, PhD, coauthor of Buried in Treasures: Help for Compulsive Acquiring, Saving, and Hoarding; Director, Anxiety Disorders Center, Institute of Living, Hartford, Connecticut

"This book is user friendly, practical, and quite comprehensive. Readers will benefit greatly from the insights and exercises provided in these pages."

-Sharon Salzberg, author of Lovingkindness

"If you're looking for a fresh way of relating to—and healing—anxiety, you'll find this book an invaluable guide. The authors bring alive the path of mindfulness in a clear and accessible way."

-Tara Brach, PhD, author of Radical Acceptance

"In the Alice in Wonderland world of emotions, anxiety is the Red Queen—always a future threat and sometimes a present danger. This superb book shows how mindfulness can help ease the ravages of anxiety. Nobody knows more about this topic than Drs. Orsillo and Roemer, and their approach will be a godsend for many."

-David H. Barlow, PhD, ABPP, Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry, Boston University, and Founder and Director Emeritus, Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders

"By far the most sophisticated and engaging guide I have seen on mindfulness and anxiety. This book is a gem. Two of the field's most knowledgeable and creative experts skillfully take you on a journey into the hidden corners of your anxious mind. With a seamless blend of interesting stories, state-of-the-art research, and exercises, this book leads you step by step toward a fuller, more meaningful life. It is an excellent resource for anyone who seeks a path to freedom from anxiety and stress."
