Overview

Find lasting relief from worry and stress with powerful techniques grounded in clinical experience and neuroscience. 

If you feel frazzled, you dwell in good company. Racing between the demands of work, health, family, and friends, many people report feelings of worry, irritability, and increasing stress. While we often cannot control stressful life events, we can learn to control our brain's response to those circumstances and reduce our suffering.

Drawing from the latest research and more than 25 years of clinical experience, Dr. Gina Simmons Schneider explains the link between anxiety, anger, and stress and shares groundbreaking remedies from neuropsychology. These tools will strengthen your resilience and expand your capacity for happiness.

In Frazzlebrain, you'll discover how to:

  • Soften your response to stress
  • Overcome toxic self-criticism
  • Tame hostile and cynical thinking
  • Activate your brain’s self-healing properties
  • Create meaningful experiences
  • Cultivate optimism and hopefulness
  • Each chapter offers exercises, case examples, and self-improvement skills to help you achieve a calmer, happier, healthier lifestyle.
