Panic disorder can manifest in many forms, but one thing is true of all chronic anxiety: it saps the pleasure from life. After all, how can we soar when crippled by fear?

Due to the condition’s personal nature, any catalyst for positive change will, itself, be singular. Snake oil and pharmaceuticals notwithstanding, there is no straight solution known. No panacea exists.

In truth, it isn’t easy, but you can reclaim your life from the grip of apprehension, and one of the most powerful tools at your disposal is learning from those who already have. In Surviving the Nervous Beast, wife, mother and successful business-owner Kenyatta Nesmith shares her story for that very purpose. Having dealt with and conquered debilitating anxiety, she offers an insightful game plan for those intent to build a new life, beginning with peaceful foundations.

This indispensable guidebook will help you to pinpoint triggers, adopt a positive outlook, build resistance and ultimately triumph over your worries.

Tired of being the victim of stress? This book has been written for you.

About the Author

Born and bred in The Bronx, Kenyatta Nesmith has lived a life that's much like New York City: endlessly eclectic. Marked with hardship and triumph, her story serves as a valuable reminder to others that they, too, can overcome adversity.
The product of trauma faced in childhood, Kenyatta's former Panic Attack Disorder was a force that she battled for years, and the experience has continued to shape her path as an author, inspirational speaker, coach and Mental Health Ambassador.
After studying management (with a focus in psychology) at both Berkeley and Pace University, Kenyatta launched 'So HollyWood Designs', a highly rewarding enterprise. As an artist and entrepreneur, she was satisfied...but nonetheless felt that her perspectives on well-being could better aid society.
Much in homage to her mother, Loretta, who demonstrated great resilience through the course of her own personal struggles with mental health, Kenyatta now applies what she discovered as a daughter, academic and past-victim of anxiety. Using myriad platforms, her career has been dedicated to raising awareness about, dispelling stigma from and helping others to replicate her success in the fight against psychological paralysis.
A true instructor is never done learning, and nothing has taught Kenyatta more than her own tribulations. Today, she's still in New York with her husband and children...grateful for all.
