Powerful tools to help you manage the anxiety that makes you angry.
Do people tell you that you seem angry? Do you find yourself losing your cool from time to time? From academic stress, worrying about college, and dealing with friend drama--you've got a lot on your plate. Is it any wonder, then, that the stress of it all can cause you to snap? If anxiety or stress is causing you to act out in ways that don't seem like you--this book can help.

You'll also discover how to "train your brain" to stop and think before reacting; and how to choose calm over chaos when faced with the things that trigger your anxiety or anger.
