Review

Down to earth, well written and engaging.   (EntrepreneurCountry, May 2012)

′Jam packed with practical tips for lightening you load. (Zest, September 2012)

From the Back Cover

Enlightening and engaging, you are bound to discover ideas and insights to help you deal with the pressures of life. Rosemary Conley, fitness and diet expert

[This book] could go a long way to help alleviate some of the unnecessary worries that people become trapped by. Kevin Morley, Channel 4 s Secret Millionaire and former Managing Director of Rover Car Group

Are You A Worrier?

Do you seem to worry more than most? Do you find that insignificant things stress you out? Do you sweat the small stuff and the big stuff too?

Well, you re not the only one. We may be the healthiest and wealthiest generation that has ever lived, but we re also the biggest worriers. It s time to stop worrying and start living.

Worry, stress, anxiety – whichever label you prefer to use can have consequences that impact not only our lives, but the lives of others around us. When we worry it s like the engine of our mind is constantly being rewed up. It doesn t allow us time to switch off and rest. It tires you out. And when you re tired you re less likely to think straight. And when you re not thinking straight it s easy to make stupid mistakes and confuse priorities

But relax.
There is a way forward.

There is a way to tackle life s challenges in a calmer and more considered way. It is possible to use a certain degree of worry and anxiety to spur us on towards positive, constructive action, and then leave the rest behind. Then you can enjoy, not simply endure the ride. And it only takes a small change in the way you approach stress to make this possible.

With down to earth, real life advice, How Not to Worry helps us understand why worrying is such a big deal and the reasons for it, exposing the behavioural traps we fall into when faced with challenges. It then helps us to move on with tools and ideas to deal with our worrier in a more constructive way.

Mr SUMO...you've done it again! This fab book takes a very serious subject (worrying, which makes you anxious, which creates stress, which robs you of energy and life!) and manages to boil it down to the basics. Lots of tips. Lots of real world stuff. Some great examples. And, in true SUMO style, some laugh out loud moments. I love the style and the tone. As human beings we're programmed to worry...but this book will help get things into perspective. Loved it

when I told my husband I was ordering this he laughed 'just one book'!! I'm a serial worrier and always have been with low self esteem to boot. the great thing about Paul McGee's books are that they are short, to the point, realistic, humourous and full of great little tips to help you. For me it's these small, but valuable nuggets that come into my mind when needed - so for me it HELPS! Honest!

I've read nearly all Paul McGee's books and his latest offering cannot fail to inspire. I have utilised aspects of Paul's material in my work and personal life and was excited to hear Paul had been working on another new book to help others on their way to a better life.

It assists the reader in understanding how they can develop strategies to help get all aspects of worry, stress. anxiety into perspective for a better life. Paul offers a no-nonsense, understandable and humorous approach to the subject which can't fail to inspire. He doesn't delve into psychobable but makes it real by talking about his own experiences of worry, stress and dealing with change as well as that of his family and friends, which really helps the reader apply it to their own life experiences. This book I know will become a real reference book to dip into for me and my family just as SUMO (Paul's philosophy and book on life strategies for success) has and continues to be. As humans we are all very different in make up and perspective but we all worry in varying degrees and it is refreshing to realise from reading this book that sometimes people love to to worry rather than take action to minimise the effects of worry on others and their own health.

I am from a family who worries - and after soaking up all this book has to offer in a weekend of reading and reflecting, I would highly recommend everyone to invest in a copy - I firmly believe that whatever your age, perspective on life or background - you can't fail to relate with the issues of worry that Paul explains in such a creative way for the reader whilst at the same time helping you develop a strategy to help you overcome the effects of worry on your life.

This was a book of tips on how not to let worries overwhelm your life. Nothing too original but some quite useful advice on analysing your worries realistically, not immersing yourself in negative media stories, associating with people who lift your mood and decluttering your life. 4/5

This book has helped me to step of the downwards spiral of negativity I sometimes find going on in my brain. I use the 'revised script'on p174 to stop myself escalating my worries and anxiety (and the book helpfully separates the two) into a form of self destruction which can negatively impact; not only on me but others around me. The idea of 'what I am feeling is temporary' is extremely useful before I press 'send' on my emotions to all and sundry. I've read all of the SUMO books and use their wisdom time and time again. Written in a down to earth and friendly style this is a non-academic, practical book for anyone to access and get immediate perspective, ideas, humour and support. Another ray of 'mancunian' sunshine from Mr McGee!

A very helpful and practical book. Paul McGee explains how the various parts of the brain work, why we sometimes become worried and apprehensive about things, and gives practical tips and advice on how to reduce worrying. I have read books before which were all about breathing exercises, etc, which are probably more helpful in cases of physical stress or anxiety attacks, but what I needed was something to help me be less apprehensive and worried about future events (worrying about all the stuff that might go wrong, etc), and this book fits the bill.

Very conversational and easy to understand, this book can be powerful if you know you worry too much and want to do something about it. Inevitably, it's also a book on reducing stress by helping identify the (often) low level noise that slows us down and robs us of joy.

Having read other material on this subject, the explanation of how our brain works and why we react the way we do, is the simplest and clearest I've yet come across. Crucially, it doesn't lose you.

This is a personable book laced with plenty of humour. It doesn't pretend to be something it isn't (an academic book) and often surprises with its straight talk. There is a strong sense that the author has worked hard to simplify the key messages and make them memorable. And he has.

Fab book. 1st half will have you seeing why you're worryng and you will be starting to find solutions as you read. 2nd half will help you expand the things you can do in order to have peace of mind. If you're standing, worrying, unable to figure out why you're not able to do the things you know you can then read the book, let it clear your mind and start moving on to be the best you can be :)
