If you suffer from anxiety, or symptoms of anxiety, there are real steps you can take to change the way your body responds. For example, progressive relaxation of muscles can reduce your pulse rate, blood pressure, and can work in much the same way as anti-anxiety medication. In this New Harbinger Self-Help Essential, you will learn to distinguish between tense and relaxed muscles, progressively relax all of the muscles in your body, and relax quickly in stressful situations.

New Harbinger Self-Help Essentials provide simple, effective exercises that you can use now to make lasting changes. This Essential is drawn from The Relaxation and Stress Reduction Workbook, which details easy, step-by-step techniques for calming the body and mind in an increasingly overstimulated world. Now in its sixth edition, this workbook, highly regarded by therapists and their clients, remains the go-to source for stress reduction strategies that can be incorporated into even the busiest lives.

The Relaxation and Stress Reduction Workbook has been awarded The Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies Self-Help Seal of Merit — an award bestowed on outstanding self-help books that are consistent with cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) principles and that incorporate scientifically tested strategies for overcoming mental health difficulties. Used alone or in conjunction with therapy, our books offer powerful tools readers can use to jump-start changes in their lives.
