Why Am I Anxious: Understanding the Root Cause of Anxiety

0 ratings


More than 2,000 studies have demonstrated that our thoughts and beliefs (which we can view as ingrained thoughts) are one of, if not the primary root causes of our anxiety. I validated this assertion for myself when I started dealing with my own debilitating anxiety years ago with a particular cognitive behavior technique called the Option Method. I worked one-on-one with an Option practitioner and learned while eliminating anxiety triggers that we often have unconscious reasons why we think we should be anxious about whatever our triggers are. 

Why should you read this book? 

CBT research has shown that anxiety is caused by our thoughts and beliefs but why? What’s going on behind the scenes? This book answers those questions while also leaving readers able to say, "I know why I get anxious." This knowledge will naturally show the reader what he/she needs to do to start eliminating their anxiety.

What will you be able to do after reading this book?

After reading this book, you’ll understand why you get emotional when you do, know how to begin uncovering the beliefs driving your anxiety, and have an awareness that will help you limit the number of fight-or-flight triggers you pick up in the future.

I also have a book on how to use the Option Method to find why we feel anxious/bad about something and eliminate that thing from making us feel anxious/bad in the future. It includes insights and lessons learned from my Option Method training and use of the Option Method on myself.
