About the Author

For many years Kathryn Tristan lived a life riddled with worry and anxiety. But she found a way to recover permanently by doing things differently and working from the inside out using holistic strategies for the mind, body, and spirit. She has committed herself to sharing her simple but powerful strategies to help others help themselves.

In 2007 she published a booked called Anxiety Rescue that not only presented the story of her remarkable recovery from crippling, lifelong anxiety, but also provided down-to-earth, easy techniques that show how to stop anxiety and regain peace and power. She made frequent media appearances describing these tools, recorded You Tube segments and was featured in several news articles on the subject. Since writing that book, Kathryn learned just how powerful those same strategies and technique are for eliminating chronic worrying. She revised her book to offer great new strategies, including some of the latest science, for overcoming chronic worrying, quickly de-stressing, and learning how to create a happier life.
