March 4, 2013, Host Corinne Frugoni Interviews Kathryn Tristan About Her New Book “Why Worry? Stop Coping and Start Living.”

Here’s a startling statistic: at some time half of the U.S. population will suffer from anxiety, depression, or addiction! We all worry. It’s a natural part of living. A biologically built-in mechanism, worry was designed to help us. Where do we go wrong? For millions worldwide, worries are eating away at our sense of security, our feelings of well-being and ultimately downsizing our happiness while super-sizing our stress. We cannot open a newspaper, turn on television, listen to the radio, or surf the internet without witnessing chaos, catastrophes, or just plain old bad news.

K_Tristan_0275_5x7_BKathryn Tristan is a research scientist on the faculty of Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Missouri.She has written or co-authored more than 250 articles in leading scientific or lay publications as diverse as PARADE Magazine and Genetic Engineering News. She has spoken and made presentations at international conferences.  She is a member of the Anxiety Disorders Association of America, Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology, and the American Association of Immunologists.

Kathryn Tristan used to be a chronic worrier.  She had severe anxiety and couldn’t leave her home town for more than 20 years. She also trembled at having to cross bridges or ride elevators. She read most books on the subject, studied the scientific literature, and took medications hoping to find the answer that would cure her, but nothing seemed to work.

Finally, she discovered how to turn her life around. It was so simple, so elegant and so practical. Anyone could do the same. In her recently published book Why Worry? Stop Coping and Start Living,  she shares the secrets of her success, describes new science that shows how we can retrain our brains, and provides easy, yet powerful tools and strategies to help worriers turn their lives around.
