The Taming Anxiety Challenge
The Taming Anxiety Challenge is available in the Courses tab of the Ten Percent Happier app and is available to subscribers. Subscribers can also access a group of guided meditations under the Singles tab in the app that'll help you practice regularly so you have the skills you need when things get tough.
People who participated in the Challenge asked about the recommended phrases.
In the final meditation of the Taming Anxiety series our meditation teacher, Booker, shared these phrases which you can repeat to yourself.
- May I continue to know the wisdom of this body.
- May I face my fears with compassion and care.
- May I become braver over time.

The Ten Percent Happier Taming Anxiety course is not a replacement for therapy or medical care. As a rule of thumb, if your anxiety is severely inhibiting your daily life you should seek professional help.
To monitor your anxiety and seek additional support we have a few resources to suggest:
- TEB Cycle Handout: a great tool for individuals to help understand their anxiety.
- The GAD-7: a validated self-report measure for General Anxiety Disorder.
- The ADAA Therapist Directory: an online resource that individuals can use to find a therapist.
