Good Morning and welcome to HW. I am very happy for you that you have found a path to dealing with your anxiety and I personally thank you for sharing with the members.
I would like to remind all of our Guideline # 4, NEVER rely on information or opinions exchanged via the forums or chat rooms to replace necessary, personal consultation(s) with qualified health or medical professionals to meet your individual health or medical needs. Remember that what's right or has worked for one person may not be what's right for you.

What do you recommend for the retired person to try? I have a herniated disc and I have to be careful about what I do as far as activities...............
Thank you Steve for the quick reply, I have a weight limitation as well as some other limitations regarding the herniation but I will look into the book you recommended.
I know how much the mind plays a role in how we deal with our issues and have gone through some self hyponosis with my therapist years ago that I still practice. I try very hard to stay in the moment and not let the anxiety take over and most of the time do quite well.
But I am always open to learning new ways to deal with stress.
