There are different types of anxiety journals and workbooks for different needs. There are books that you can use by yourself, and others that are best used working with a behavioral health professional.
And you’d think I wouldn’t have to define what a journal or workbook is but in this case, I do. Because there are the bound type of books that you can find anyplace from the 99 Cents Only store to the most expensive stationary outlet. Bound blank pages with maybe the date and a section for doodling. 
Love those things,  but not the topic of the podcast. This is a look at items that are specifically targeted to people that have stress or anxiety issues. 
But even that doesn't quite get to it. There is a wide range of publications and apps.
Because there is a difference between anxiety journals and workbooks. You want to find a good match for what you need.
There are journal books that might have a one sentence prompt and you are given a few lines to respond to that sentence.  You might need more.
There are thick workbooks that give solid information about anxiety conditions, what to do if X happens and push a specific treatment choice. You might need less. 
You might need your content in plain English or you want the full firehouse of information.
In this episode, a look at anxiety journals and workbooks. Some of the authors do have audiobook versions.
Oh, one more thing. There are a number of books with the same name or similar names. When possible, I've included the author's name, website or publisher to help you get to the item mentioned in the podcast.
