"Put yourself at ease with this highly practical, internationally bestselling guide to reducing anxiety and living worry-free by the renowned Zen Buddhist author of The Art of Simple Living. Can you think of a time when you were worried about something, but then a random comment or occurrence made you realize how insignificant it was, and you were amazed by how much lighter you felt? We often allow ourselves to be frightened by shadows that aren't really there. As renowned Zen Buddhist monk Shunmyo Masuno says, 90 percent of our worries won't come true. The key is to focus only on the here and now. By doing so, we free ourselves from unnecessary anxiety or worry, and our mind will be at peace. In Don't Worry, you will learn to: act instead of worrying-things will definitely work out better; stop comparing yourself to others-90 percent of your obsessions will disappear; interpret things positively-you are the one to decide whether you are happy or not; stop seeking, stop rushing, stop obsessing; stop taking in too much information; take a break from competition-it's the Zen way of avoiding anxiety; remove unnecessary things from your life and make your life absolutely simple. The goal is to reduce, to let go, to leave behind. By doing so, you'll discover a calmer, more relaxed, more positive version of yourself"-- Provided by publisher.
