How to Stop Freaking the %#$@ Out

Double click on above image to view full picture

Have you ever felt anxious? Have those intense feelings ever made you want to crawl into a hole in the fetal position or, alternatively, punch someone in the face? If so, you're not alone.

When we experience big, complex feelings our body tells us to react. Since you are, after all, part of the animal kingdom, your body doesn’t always know the difference between a giant monster coming to eat you and giving a presentation to your peers, and this triggers your brain to “freak out.”

This book offers twenty-four wacky, totally-rooted-in-neuroscience ways to stop freaking out. Get your brain to detach from the big, scary feelings when deep breathing just won’t cut it.

Effects of this book may include: laughter, feeling "super calm and chill," and even like you can actually continue adulting for the rest of your day. Give it a try. I mean after all, it's cheaper than an hour of therapy.

Brought to you by the therapists at Ellie Family Services.

Erin Pash

Erin Pash is a marriage and family therapist. She was raised in the Twin Cities but prefers to stay in the suburban loop due to increased traffic anxiety (this book helps her to make it to things in the “big city”). Erin is co-owner of Ellie Family Services, and her life’s mission is to make getting help more fun, accessible, and creative. Erin does the whole mom thing when she’s not working and has a flair for human anatomy, art, and golf. This book is very near and dear to Erin because if anything, at the end of the day, she wants people to feel better just the way they are.

Kyle Keller

Kyle Keller is a licensed clinical social worker and has spent his entire life living on the outskirts of St. Paul, Minnesota. Despite his frustrations with the frigidity and terrible darkness of Minnesota winters, he has learned to appreciate the subtle beauty of Midwestern terrain. He especially likes to meet, interact with, and learn about other human beings who occupy this place he calls home. Kyle is the co-owner of Ellie Family Services and seeks to help connect others to their personal sources of meaning and value, and facilitate conversations that normalize and destigmatize various forms of distress. Kyle is a big fan of reading, music, and world history.
