7 Ways The Anxiety Journal Might Just Change Your Life: Journaling is one of those concepts that seems too simple to make a difference. That’s what I thought when I first started journaling, but things started to change subconsciously. It was like I was creating the script for my own life. This is why I created The Anxiety Journal I wanted to apply the profound power of journaling to the problem of anxiety, people describe focused journaling as ‘magic’ But it’s not magic, focused journaling works for a few simple reasons 1 Accountability - When you write down what you want you cement those desires into your consciousness. But building habits takes time. Completing the daily activities in this journal will have a direct impact on your results. 2 Support - We need support when suffering anxiety — even when we don’t believe in ourselves. This journal will support and inspire you to ask for more in your own life. 3 Inspiration - As one of my mentors, Philip McKernan, says, “You can’t motivate people to do anything, but you can inspire them.” The quotes and stories in this journal are designed to inspire. 4 Growth - Lao Tzu said, “The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” Each day and week the journal will assist you in making small incremental steps to improve your life. 5 Community - You are not alone. By using this journal you’ll be joining a community that wants to recover. You can also join the conversation online for more conversation and accountability. Check out theanxietyjournal.com for more info. 6 Confidence - Anxiety sucks the confidence out of us and makes us feel weak. Our self-esteem takes a beating and survival feels like an accomplishment. 7 Alignment - The tools in this journal will get you moving in the right direction. When a car has worn-out tires and damaged suspension , the steering wheel begins to shake. Anxiety is your shaky steering wheel. Fix the alignment, fix the anxiety.

The journal makes it easy and quick to rearrange your perspective on a daily basis. By asking the questions in the journal, you can start to gradually shift your approach to the day and to things that come up.
In the end, it's a tool. And although there's a great section at the beginning that describes the approach, it's really the work of completing the journal every day that will make the biggest difference in your life. Still, this journal is worth the price and the 5 stars, because it organizes that daily work in an easy and effective way and makes the journey that much easier.
During the midst of the mayhem, I found The Anxiety Podcast. It was then that I started listening to Tim's podcast while on my treadmill dutifully trying to nip the adrenaline coursing through my veins. What he was saying made sense. I needed to stop fearing the sensations by, as he calls it, "LEAN IN". I needed to accept the feelings, feel them and be okay that they are there. Instead of dwelling on every little sensation which would snowball into more adrenaline and, for me, apprehension and a lot of avoidance behavior, I needed to give up the fight. By giving up that fight and just embracing, I am diffusing the anxiety monster. (I'm clawing my way back tooth and nail. I am not there, yet, but I will be!)
The other important piece of the puzzle... The Anxiety Journal. Tim's Journal has allowed me to stop, reflect and search for what's important in my life.
2015 was a great year up until that December. I have a wonderful, beautiful family and a fun, part time job as a group ex instructor and personal trainer. But, that year, I was doing way too much. I was always in a rush from point A to point B, I was taking on more responsibilities (when my first priority was family), I was worried about money, worried about my family, etc. Not to mention we took a big family vacation overseas. (Btw... your body doesn't know the difference between good and bad "adrenaline"). I was also training for my 33rd marathon when debilitating anxiety stopped me in my tracks!
This is where Tim's Anxiety Journal helps...
After reflecting on what took place in 2015, I realize now that I never stopped to take in what was going on around me to really, truly be grateful. Yeah, in my line of work it would be considered "nurturing", "taking time for myself", but it really wasn't. It was still "work" and became a "workout obligation". Sure, I still loved running, but I had TWO panic attacks during a long training run and one DURING a marathon at mile 18. (That's NOT nurturing). Needless to say, I was stuck in autopilot. I never even slowed down long enough to think of what made my day great or what would make tomorrow even better. It's really sad to think of it that way now. As I'm writing this, I'm realizing more and more how I should truly be grateful for my anxiety.
The Anxiety Journal isn't a quick fix (I'm still working on me), but it's a great tool in your toolbox! Layer by layer I'm realizing that the less power I give anxiety, by just allowing, the less it comes knocking. This journal allows me quiet time to really think and write about what's around me, what is good, what my possibilities are, ways to have compassion for myself as well as my utmost desires.
I'm moving on with my life regardless if anxiety is there. (Tim's advice is really helping!) I refuse to give in and give up. I've got more marathons in my future, I know it! I will get there!
I came across Tim's website [...] and immediately began to resinate with what Tim spoke about, through his own experiences. I feel listening to these they've played a huge part in pointing me in the right direction in my recovery. I've found meditation, exercise and diet all very benificial to getting me where I am now, but struggling from time to time in maintaining consistency, so I recently began The anxiety journal and I feel using it is going to help me implement the work on a more consistent basis.
I'd not only highly recommend this purchase to anyone dealing with anxiety but also I'd recommend checking out Tim's website, It might just change your life. #ccc
That’s what I love about this book. Tim JP Collins gives me the opportunity to not only journal, but through quirky quotes, illustrations and clean layout, entices me to keep journaling daily.
I love how it’s all spun in a positive way too! Anxiety sufferers can be so hard on themselves. I can’t think of a better way to practise gratitude and awareness than to get up each morning and write in The Anxiety Journal.
I highly recommend this journal to anyone, anxiety sufferer or otherwise. After all, attitude is gratitude. Well done Tim. This is the start of something fantastic for me (and many others I hope).
