CALM for Moms

Worry Less in Four Simple Steps

By Denise Marek

Motherhood is stressful, but international award-winning speaker and worry management expert Denise Marek is here to tell you that you can stress less by learning to worry wisely! With her proven CALM method, a four-step process that has helped many individuals and organizations around the world connect with their inner peace, overcome their fears, and take the risks that are essential for success, mothers can tackle the stress of parenting. Whether you suffer from chronic worry about finances, family difficulties, your children’s happiness, or even your teen getting home late, the CALM process can teach you how to handle it all.

The process is simple:
  • Challenge negative assumptions that create unnecessary worry.
  • Act on your worry to overcome fears and reduce the physical and emotional effects of stress.
  • Let go of worries beyond your control and upsetting feelings like mom-guilt, mom-shaming, and fear.
  • Master your mind and guard against negative thinking by planting new, positive thoughts.

With the science behind the CALM process, now tailored specifically for mothers, and with relatable stories, puzzles, fun exercises, jokes, and easy-to-implement strategies packed in a single stress-busting book, CALM for Moms gives the gift of worry-free parenting.
