This review is from: The Joy of Work?: Jobs, Happiness and You (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As a born worrier, recently moved in with my partner, arranging a wedding and waiting and preparing to apply for my current job, I was looking for as little help on the worrying front!
The daily exercises form a good framework to work through the process of worrying and as there were many that I found particularly useful, I will be using these in the future if times get more worrisome. This book is very good for this, as once you've worked through it once, you can then pick and choose which exercises suit you and your needs best!
I didn't do (out loud) the verbal (talking) exercises, but instead wrote about them. This was a personal choice as I find talking about worrying embarrassing, but it may work for others!!
Writing down worries is something I find very therapeutic , relaxing and generally relieves the worry in my head, so having structured exercises to focus this was really useful.
This (or any) book will not stop someone being a total worrier, but it helps to relieve the stress of worrying with its variety of techniques suggested.
