    currently dealing with stress, anxiety, ocd and depression. I'm really interested in books about anxiety and how to develop myself further. I want to continue living life at it's fullest and i want to develop good reading habits while also learning more how to meditate, live in the present and stop overthinking stuff.

    already read "Healing Back Pain" by John E. Sarno and "The Great Pain Deception" by Steven Ray Ozanich.

    thanks!

    In my opinion reading is good but be careful not to over do it.

    The more energy you put into the thought that 'I have a pain/anxiety problem, the more you create this thought.'

    I think once you realized that there is a problem it needs action. Control your thoughts vs. reading more and more.

    I can give you one piece of advice that will help:

    "You always can choose what you want to think or do. Even in bad situations there are choices. What would your best version of you do/choose?"

    All the best.
