Publisher's Summary

Do you live in constant fear? Do you worry that something terrible is about to happen? Do you have trouble breathing, relaxing, and sleeping? Do you think you're losing control, and that you're going to die?
Are you trapped in your own personal hell, and don’t know how to get out?
I've been there, and I know what it’s like. Shallow breathing, tension in the gut, chest pains, rapid heartbeat... Every moment is exhausting, crushing, and painful. Anxiety destroys your confidence, your productivity, your relationships, and your ability to enjoy life. The worst part is the obsessive hopelessness - the gnawing sense that you’ll never feel happy again.
Fear no more. You can put an end to your suffering. You can start living again. And it’s not as hard as you think....
Play It Away covers my entire journey: what caused my anxiety, the "A-ha!" moment that led to my cure, and how I got my life back. In this book, you’ll learn:

The key breakthrough that allowed me to enjoy life again
My step-by-step plan for healing anxiety without drugs
How I turned nonstop worrying into background noise
My unusual technique for stopping panic attacks
Why "anchors" fuel anxiety, and how to remove them
How I finally started sleeping well again
Three common nutrient deficiencies that amplify anxiety
How to boost productivity and have guilt-free fun

Shallow Tips and Tricks

What disappointed you about Play It Away?

This book does not have any depth. The author gives little tips and tricks that helped him solve his anxiety problems. These worked for him, so he says, but they did not work for me.

What could Charlie Hoehn have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Help solve the problem of worry and anxiety instead of citing interesting apps and TV shows that he enjoys.

What didn’t you like about Ray Chase’s performance?

He did a good job.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Play It Away?

Most of it because I found his app recommendation and tips and tricks useless.

The book is only 3 hours long and can be boiled down to two things:

1.) Relax
2.) Get enough sleep

Any additional comments?

Give me my credit back!
