LISTEN to today's conversation with Jordan Reid!



Feeling anxious? Who isn't! Your fears are fodder for this astute, hysterical activity book: THE BIG ACTIVITY BOOK FOR ANXIOUS PEOPLE

We’re at a cultural moment where “anxiety” extends beyond the boundaries of a diagnosable disorder; it’s practically become a way of life. Part journal, part coloring book, part weird coping mechanisms, and part compendium of soothing facts, THE BIG ACTIVITY BOOK FOR ANXIOUS PEOPLE is an outlet for anyone who wants to take a break from reality, laugh through fears, and recognize with every page that they are not alone.



As a founding editor of the popular lifestyle blog Ramshackle Glam, Jordan Reid’s audience is well-acquainted with her honest, witty writing style. Erin Williams is also beloved for her fresh, quirky drawings that compliment Reid’s familiar voice. THE BIG ACTIVITY BOOK FOR ANXIOUS PEOPLE exemplifies the culmination of both their talents.


Jordan Reid will discuss:

· How to navigate your social media feeds without having an anxiety attack

· Anti-anxiety office strategies (Get through the workday without apologizing, meditations you should try, etc.)

· Zen mantras for the anxiously inclined

· Reasons why having anxiety is a good thing

· Why getting older is actually kind of okay

· In addition, she shares obscure diseases you probably don’t have, AND soothing facts about hand sanitizer.



So, on a bad day, color in the soothing grandma. On a really bad day, find step-by-step instructions on how to build an underground bunker. Reid and Williams want everyone to remember that they’re in good company: Anxious people are some of the funniest and most interesting and creative humans on the planet. (They know, because they are two of them.)
