The Big Activity Book for Anxious People

The Big Activity Book for Anxious People

‘WHO KNEW MY ANXIETY COULD BE SO FUNNY?’ Amy Morrison, founder of Pregnant Chicken

Feeling anxious? Who isn’t! Your most irrational (and sometimes rational) fears are hilarious fodder for this sharp and relatable activity book.

These days, anxiety is simply part of the human experience. Part journal, part coloring book, part weird coping mechanisms, and part compendium of soothing facts, The Big Activity Book for Anxious Peoplewill be an outlet for anyone who wants to take a break from reality, laugh through her fears, and realize with every page that she is not alone–and to help her figure out what to do when it’s 3AM and she’s wide awake worrying about whether she cc’ed the right “Bob” on that email. (Probably.)

Activities include:
* Fun Facts about Aging!
* Public Speaking: A Diagram
* Your Hotel Room Carpet: A Petri Dish of Horrors
* Obscure Diseases You Probably Don’t Have
* Zen Mantras For The Anxiously Inclined
* Soothing Facts about Hand Sanitizer

On a bad day, try coloring in the soothing grandma. On a really bad day, find step-by-step instructions on how to build an underground bunker. Reid and Williams want everyone to remember that they’re in good company: anxious people are some of the funniest and most interesting and creative humans on the planet. (They know, because they are two of them.)

Reviews

This book helped me feel less alone in my anxieties, while also laughing at the sheer absurdity of them. Thank you, Jordan and Erin, for giving voice to my silent screams.
Beth Newell, editor/cofounder of Reductress
I've tried apps, mediation, exercise, mindfulness, doctors, meds, and more to help my ever-growing beast of anxiety but nothing put it into perspective-or made me laugh more-than Reid and Williams' smart, sassy, and absolutely genius The Big Activity Book for Anxious People. From anxiety check-ins to coloring to concrete suggestions for soothers that actually really and truly work, just seeing this book on my desk every morning makes me breathe easier. It should be required reading for everyone I know
Caroline Leavitt, New York Times bestselling author (and anxious person) of Is This Tomorrow and Pictures of You
I laughed out loud at every page. Now I feel better about flying in a plane, being trapped in an Uber without cell service, and all the diseases I probably don't have. I want to give this to everyone I know in my Jordan Catalano generation
Liz Teich, The New York Stylist
Frickin' hysterical! Who knew my anxiety could be so funny?
Amy Morrison, founder of Pregnant Chicken
Anxiety loves company. Or, at least, commiseration. This brilliant, hilarious book of fun will keep you giggling and scribbling your worries away. Since receiving it, I've been too busy to do an in depth internet search, but I hear it's scientifically proven to be just as effective at alleviating self-torment as a heavy blanket, dose of CBD oil, or therapy session. My cuticles, hairline, and digestive system salute Reid and Williams!
Phoebe Lapine, author of The Wellness Project
This book is exactly what it says it is: a big activity book for anxious people! It's got some great activities inside that totally keep me busy, keep my anxiety in check, and truly is a great time suck to keep my mind focused on the activities and an escape from whatever is consuming me those days. Cannot recommend this book enough!!!
