Be a Warrior Not a Worrier by Hayley L Silk is a motivational self-help book that offers practical advice to overcoming specific anxiety-causing issues that we all face on a daily basis, such as money, health, failure and how others perceive them. Written with humour and insight from the author’s own personal battle with anxiety as well as her expertise as a Life Coach.

This is the THRID award Hayley L Silk has received since the book was released in April 2018, having also won ‘The 2018 Independent Book Awards’ and ‘The 2018 NYC Big Book Awards’ in the same category.
As well as receiving International Recognition, ‘Be a Warrior Not a Worrier’ also received a glowing review from the UK’s largest anxiety charity ‘Anxiety UK’ proving it to be a very helpful resource for those battling anxiety disorders.

 “Written in a really engaging and personal style, this book gives the reader concrete tools and tips for dealing with those issues and circumstances in life that can lead to increased anxiety.

What I found most rewarding was that Hayley Silk seems to have written a book about exactly how I feel. By saying that, I mean that it became clear that other people have similar worries, and they are probably just as consuming for them as they can be for me at times. That really does make me feel better.” Anxiety UK
