How to Break Free from Anxiety, Rumination, and Worry

Watch Dr. Gillihan Demonstrate This Simple Breathing Exercise

Seth J. Gillihan, PhD

If you or your clients are dealing with overwhelming anxiety, you’re certainly not alone—anxiety is one of the most common mental health concerns today. Many of us were feeling pushed to our limits even before the pandemic hit. That’s exactly why I created The CBT Deck for Anxiety, Rumination, and Worry, which offers over 100 simple practices based on mindfulness-centered cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). At the time, I couldn’t have imagined the challenges we were about to face and how great the need would be for effective ways to guard our peace of mind.

In this short video, I introduce you to this new CBT deck and describe how to get the most out of it. Grounded in my Think Act Be approach, each evidence-based practice is designed to help you find relief from worries about the future or ruminations about the past. I’ll also walk you through a simple breathing exercise from the deck so you’ll know firsthand the kind of practices you’ll find here. So thank you for taking the time to watch, and I hope you find ways every day to calm your mind, soothe your nervous system, and live your life to the fullest.
