Workbook about anxiety and depression I personally found useful. You may like it too.



Nov 5, 2020
Hi, one good method to forget about anxiety, which I was told, is reading. And I've been doing just that during the 1st lockdown in my country. I found a book that I just went through called "Anxiety & Depression Workbook for Dummies." For those who've never read anything from the "for Dummies" series, don't be fooled by the title. It's not for dummies, it's just very detailed. Personally, I've found a few tips which were helpful for me. If anyone has read or wants to read it, I'm all ears if you want to discuss it. And if you have any book suggestions, I'm all ears too.

Thank you for this recommendation.
It sounds really useful.
I will look out for it.

Yes, I’ve seen several titles “for dummies”
It can be a misleading description.

There is CBT for dummies but I haven’t seen the content.

There is also “Feeling Good” mood therapy

“The Feeling Good” handbook
and several others all by:-

David Burns

I have heard these being used and recommend by
Mental health professionals.

He has written many others I think.
I haven’t seen any of them yet though so can’t give any
advice about them.
