Anxiety is a powerful force. It makes us question our decisions and ourselves, worry about the future, all while filling our days with dread and emotional turbulence. But are you truly in danger or has your brain simply “tricked” you into thinking you are?

Carbonell.

Many people who’ve experienced panic attacks try to protect themselves from their anxiety. They tell themselves “don’t think about it;” they resist it; they try to force themselves to feel better; they feel shame and embarrassment and try to keep it a secret from others; and they try to medicate it away with alcohol, nicotine, and other substances. These all make the anxiety worse. Psychologist and anxiety expert Dr. David Carbonell offers a way out for people with panic attacks—whether the attacks are part of panic disorder, social phobia, specific phobias, or some other anxiety disorder. Dr. Carbonell is author of the audiobook “Panic Attacks Workbook: A Guided Program for Beating the Panic Trick.”

Many people struggle with panic attacks and phobias. Dr. David Carbonell is a psychologist, anxiety expert and author of the audiobook: “Panic Attacks Workbook: A Guided Program for Beating the Panic Trick.” Today he tells us there’s good news and bad news about panic attacks, and the phobias that usually accompany them. The bad news is that panic is a devious, insidious trick that can make you a prisoner in your own life, home and head. The good news? It’s only a trick! People can, and do, overcome this trick.
Today we’re exploring the power of cognitive restructuring and ending anxiety by rewiring the brain. We’re sharing an excerpt from the audio book “Rewire Your Anxious Brain: How to Use the Neuroscience of Fear to End Anxiety, Panic, and Worry.” Thought patterns that are illogical or unhealthy can exacerbate anxiety or stress. Cognitive therapists focus on identifying and changing thoughts that are self-defeating or dysfunctional, particularly thoughts that lead to increased levels of anxiety or depression. This approach is known as cognitive restructuring. By changing your thoughts, you can establish new patterns of responding in the brain that become stable and lasting!
Psychologist Dr. David Klemanski tells us about two fields of psychological research—emotion regulation and mindfulness. Together they can provide a powerful framework for helping people gain mastery over anxiety. Dr. Klemanski is the author of the audiobook “Don’t Let Your Anxiety Run Your Life.”
