I am feeling better using the accept not fight method to treat my mild anxiety- My issues now are just doing all the things i used to do. Im taking it slow and going back to places or events that triggered my anxiety. Do you have any books or methods that you recommend? I am staying busy,active.healthy diet, no caffine and working on total acceptance. I dont panic just a quick flush of adrenalin- more in anticipation of doing the things that made me anxious-highways are big hurdle. although i accept it and it goes away. Is patience, acceptance (not fighting) and time the answer get me back in balance

The method that can be useful for such is : Relaxation therapy.

There are many relaxation therapies, of which JPMR (Jacobsons progressive muscular relaxation ) has been well researched, studied and is widely used.

Regarding Highway problem -- Graded Exposure therapy would help

For understanding the principles of CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy), in brief, will be of help.

Hope this will help you

Wish you good luck
