Does this sound familiar?
I frequently wake up feeling worried.
Every day feels like a chore.
I often feel very overwhelmed and don’t know what to do.
I always feel like there is some problem that I need to think about.
Yes? It sounds like you worry a lot — possibly too much. Do people notice that you complain a lot or seem too hard on yourself? Maybe you often feel nervous during your day and wonder if it shows? If you worry so often that life feels easier when you avoid situations that cause worry, I understand. Are you frustrated by this pattern? Of course you are! Eventually, life can feel pretty disappointing. You know you have more to offer, but you feel stuck in your thoughts.
Do you ever wonder how some people, with no more talent or capability than you, easily face situations that are overwhelming for you (like money, career, love life)? Do you feel broken, like others know something you just don't get?
You are not alone!
According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA), anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S., affecting 40 million adults in the US age 18 and older, or 18.1% of the population.

Does this sound impossible? Too good to be true?

How much would your mental energy increase if you didn’t overthink everything?
How fantastic would your body feel without the sense of worry you carry around?

Who Am I And Why Should You Listen?
My name is Ingrid Helander and worry is a topic that is near and dear to me.
As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I get dozens of calls and emails every month asking for help with worry, anxiety, fears, stuckness, pain, confusion and the like. Over the past 15 years or so I have helped people who are frequent worriers to improve their lives.
I understand the difficulty of chronic worry from the inside out. I’ve suffered with it for as long as I can remember. I am actually grateful to have lived a life that knows worry. It has motivated me to dig deep to discover what can really work for people like me — and you!
And here’s an interesting realization…I’m not so sure that people generally thought of me as worried. (Can you relate?)
Sure, sometimes I would get “the look” like: What is your problem? But generally, I made it through my day.
But everything feels like effort. It’s exhausting.
Ironically, it is chronic worry that almost kept me from pursuing my career as a therapist!
Thankfully, other wise therapists noticed my enslavement to worry, and I found resources to move forward. But it is not easy. And one thing I do know, the cookie cutter approaches to calming worry, relieving stress and feeling confident seldom work.
And for those of us for whom worry is really a way of life, one-size-fits-all suggestions are incredibly defeating.
I cheer each time I see a client make a shift out of worry. The calm and delight they express is wonderful to witness.
Thanks to extensive study of Internal Family Systems Therapy and The Polyvagal Theory of neuroscience, I am able to offer you the secret code that works in my life and so many of my client’s lives.
Without these techniques, there is no way I would have opened a private practice, studied to be a yoga teacher, spoken to a crowd of 400 people – or written this book.
What will you accomplish when you can understand your secret code and alleviate your chronic worry?
That’s why I created
