Summary

Let’s face it, we all know people who are irrational. No matter how hard you try to reason with them, it never works. So what’s the solution? How do you talk to someone who’s out of control? What can you do with a boss who bullies, a spouse who yells, or a friend who frequently bursts into tears? 
In his book, Just Listen, Mark Goulston shared his bestselling formula for getting through to the resistant people in your life. Now, in his breakthrough new book Talking to Crazy, he brings his communication magic to the most difficult group of all—the downright irrational. 
As a psychiatrist, Goulston has seen his share of crazy and he knows from experience that you can’t simply argue it away. The key to handling irrational people is to learn to lean into the crazy—to empathize with it. That radically changes the dynamic and transforms you from a threat into an ally. Talking to Crazy explains this counterintuitive Sanity Cycle and reveals: 
Why people act the way they doHow instinctive responses can exacerbate the situation—and what to do insteadWhen to confront a problem and when to walk awayHow to use a range of proven techniques including Time Travel, the Fish-bowl, and the Belly RollAnd much more 
You can’t reason with unreasonable people—but you can reach them. This powerful and practical book shows you how.

    What you will find that follows this introduction is a set of rules and information that you can adhere to in your Dominant / submissive relationship or not.  It can be quite a lot of fun, just sitting down and reading a rule and each time a new rule is added the submissive life can change dramatically because of it.  
    How you implement the rules or not, is entirely up to you, these are just guidelines, things that we have found have been fun and work well in our relationship, feel free to alter or change a rule to fit your own situations.I personally like to leave the book lying around the house just so my submissive husband can see it and know that it is there.

    I thought I was a basket case. Anxiety and depression consumed me until I took ownership of the part I played in creating my vortex of misery. It was from this space I had the epiphany that anxiety and depression are states; not illnesses. They are simply an SOS signal from within, an alert to re-evaluate your lifestyle, beliefs, values, thinking and the way you view the world. If you are prepared to make a new decision to wake up, step up and own it you too can create a compelling future.

    This anxiety workbook is designed to help you to rid yourself of ongoing anxiety. Anxiety is a very real condition and some schools of thought define it as a "future oriented" condition in which a person is in a state of constant worry about some event which may or may not occur at some point in the future. Anxiety is thought to be the body's way of prompting the self to deal with stressful situations and when it is not chronic, is thought of as a normal state to be in to help the body to cope with stressful situations. The problem comes however, when one is in a constant state of anxiety. This workbook, through a series of highly effective exercises, helps you to get on top of anxiety related problems and get back to a normal life. Symptoms Anxiety can manifest itself in a number of very real and often frightening physical and emotional symptoms. Symptoms of anxiety can include any combination of the following: Palpitations Panic attacks Hyperventilation Tension and muscle weakness Headache Tiredness Fatigue Shortness of breath Chest pain Nausea Stomach ache Types Anxiety can manifest itself in several ways including social anxiety, phobia, obsessive compulsive behaviour/disorder and post traumatic stress disorder. The problem with living in a constant state of anxiety is that it can lead to even more serious physical problems such as high blood pressure and heart disease. This is because the state of anxiety means that the body is under the impression that there is a perceived threat. As a result, the body raises the blood pressure, increases the heart rate and increases the flow of blood to major muscle groups to help the body to deal with an impending situation which does not exist in reality. Social Anxiety Social anxiety can be thought of as a fear of being in social situations. To those who do not suffer from it, it is an irrational fear, but to those who experience it, it is very real and the implications can be devastating and disabling. Some people feel like they can not leave the house for fear of being scrutinised in social situations. If this is you, the shyness and social anxiety workbook can help you to get past it. Phobia Phobia occurs when you feel so anxious about an object or particular situation that you avoid coming into contact with it at all costs. Sometimes the fear can be so great that it can lead to intense feelings of fear, sweating, palpitations and hyperventilation. Some sufferers have been known to become so distressed that they faint. One can have phobias of anything from spiders to heights. If this sounds at all familiar, the phobia anxiety workbook can help you to get past your fears. Panic Attacks Panic attacks can be thought of as periods of very intense fear and anxiety which occur suddenly and often with no warning. They symptoms may include any combination of the following Palpitations Shortness of breath A feeling of suffocation Trembling Shaking Sweating Nausea Stomach pain Feeling light headed Feeling dizzy Shortness of breath Fear of impending death Hot flashes Chills feeling numb or tingling sensation Panic attacks can last for anything from 10 minutes to several hours and it is said that the experience can be the most frightening experience in a persons life. The first one can take a few days to recover from. If this sounds at all like you, the panic and anxiety workbook can help you to get past your panic attacks quickly and easily. Anxiety Workbook This "anxiety workbook" comes complete with 10 truly powerful steps to help you to cure your anxiety very quickly. If any of the symptoms described here appear at all familiar to you or a loved one, the anxiety workbook could help change your life.
