My Upcoming Book on Anxiety
As a psychologist, in the last 5 years anxiety has emerged as the topmost concern when it comes to therapy. My experience with clients tells me that anxiety has increased across gender and across age groups. The changing landscapes of relationships, job culture, technology are some of the factors that the book discusses in relation to what triggers anxiety in all of us. Its impact can be seen in an increase in panic attacks that people are experiencing, their struggle with sleep, and a pattern of overthinking.
My upcoming book "Anxiety: Overcoming it to Live Without Fear" uses variety of case studies, vignettes and examples to describe how anxiety plays out in an Indian context and the unique factors that contribute to it.
The purpose of writing the book is to help people identify the possible triggers, situational factors and also identify early symptoms of anxiety. The book focuses on techniques, strategies and the lifestyle changes that one can make which would help people manage anxiety better. At the same time, it's also is a primer for people to understand when they need professional help and also a better recognition of their personal symptoms.
I’m super excited about my first book! I hope it can shed some light on the nature of anxiety and help everyone reading with resources that allow them to manage their concerns.
Thanks for being patient and supportive all these years.
