A Woman’s Guide to Liberation from Anxiety, Worry & Stress Using Mindfulness & Acceptance.
In a culture where women are paid less for doing the same jobs, expected to juggle multiple demands flawlessly, and objectified at every turn, it’s no wonder we experience anxiety at nearly double the rates of men. But anxiety need not be a prison. Based on the principles of Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), Be Mighty takes readers on an entertaining and empowering journey toward a deeper understanding of the patterns that are keeping them stuck. Offering evidence-based strategies for embracing discomfort and letting go of the Inner Critic, Be Mighty aims to inspire women to become their fiercest, most authentic, mighty selves.
