I love how books and zines can become such great companion tools for mental health. Whether just reading itself for relaxation and escapism. Or whether it's selecting certain books themselves as tools for self-discovery or support.
Here in this featured collection, I've selected two journals and one excellent little support zine for anxiety. I love these because they all take a different approach to support anxiety. They all have blue covers, though that wasn't why I selected them.
Let's take a look at each one now. Each of these tools is available in the shop.
The Anxiety Journal
by Corinne Sweet
The first thing I noticed when picking up Corinne's Anxiety Journal. It's pretty weighty! The journal is filled to the brim with great information explaining anxiety and the different types of anxiety. The journal has lovely rounded corners with lots of exercises you can do. This journal does have it all, from triggers to panic attacks and trauma and much more. It is a well thought out tool. More >
Find You Calm
by Jamie Zuckerman
Jamie has created great exercises in Find Your Calm to reduce anxiety, worry and stress. You can see the science behind the activities themselves, but in saying that, it's not a dry workbook by any stretch of the imagination. The activities are fun, really interactive and will get you thinking reflectively. The design of the workbook is also well thought out. It's wider, so easy to lay flat and write in. More >
You Will Be Okay: An Anti-Anxiety Pocket Book
You Will Be Okay is one of my favourite support tools for anxiety. It might be small, but it has an essential job in helping you through when anxiety is at its peak.
You Will Be Okay is a pocketbook to carry with you. Bring it out when feeling overwhelmed or in the middle of an anxious episode. Each page has a short message that you step through; it's like having a calming friend talking to you. The pocketbook has quick exercises you can do right away to bring yourself back into the moment.
