When Your Mind Screams

Christopher Glatis

Anxiety has left you scared, confused, and frustrated. Though you’ve read books, blog posts, and articles, nothing’s helped. Maybe you’ve lost hope. Maybe you’ve flashed the world two middle fingers and said, “Nope, I’m done.”

In When Your Mind Screams, filmmaker and lifelong personal growth enthusiast Christopher Glatis explores anxiety from the lens of a creative, demonstrating how anxiety makes us feel fearful and stressed in an effort to help, though it’s actually doing anything but. In fact, the instinct to run from anxiety’s uncomfortable sensations does more harm than good. Glatis explains how reworking your response to anxiety—not fighting it—is the key to recovery.

In this unique and entertaining book, Glatis offers a solid plan that enables you to embrace anxiety and, in turn, minimize its maddening impact. Glatis’ refreshing, practical advice and tools will show you how to reforge your relationship with anxiety, find relief, and take your life back.
