Today, I'll be discussing Sarah Knight's Calm the F*ck Down.
Calm the F*ck Down by Sarah Knight
Do you spend more time worrying about problems than solving them? Do you let unexpected difficulties ruin your day? Do "what ifs" keep you up at night?
Sounds like you need to calm the f*ck down...
Whether you're stressed about sh*t that hasn't happened yet or are freaked out about sh*t that already has, "anti-guru" Sarah Knight is here to help you curb the anxiety and overthinking that's making everything worse.
I am giving all the stars to the potty mouth genius that is Sarah Knight. Seriously can't remember the last time I laughed-out-loud this much while reading a book.
I normally don't pick up self-help novels, but those who know me know that I'm a sucker for profanity, jokes, and Friends references.
Calm the F*ck Down is hilarious, refreshing, and fun. But more importantly, it's relatable and genuinely helpful. I have never really believed in self-help books, but something told me to give Knight a chance. I'm so happy I did.
Knight not only offers advice in her novel, she also includes exercises that help readers help themselves. My worrying isn't 100% gone, but I can say that it's not as drastic and irrational as it was prior to reading this piece.
Calm the F*ck Down is a great pick for several reasons. Aside from being relatable and engaging, it's a quick read and easy to follow/understand.
I recommend this book to my fellow worriers... I'll be checking out The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck next.
