Calm the F*ck Down

by Sarah Knight


Are you someone that often finds yourself affected by small problems, so much that they ruin your day or dominate your thoughts? Do you fall to pieces if something doesn't go slightly to plan? If so, you might need to Calm the F*ck Down — and author Sarah Knight wants to help you do so.

Anxiety and overthinking are common problems, but if you find yourself asking 'What if?' more times a week than feels healthy, it's likely that you're allowing your anxiety to be a drain on your wellbeing. By taking proactive steps to fix the problems underneath our anxiety, we can take back control of our lives.

Calm the F*ck Down is a step-by-step guide on how to control what you can, accept what you can't, and generally enjoy a happier, healthier and (relatively) less stressed life.
