About Gigi Langer Ph.D.

Before landing at Stanford for her doctoral studies, Gigi Langer competed in show jumping, hitchhiked across Spain, and taught middle school French and Spanish. In her second marriage, she continued her adventures by studying and giving riding lessons in Brazil, Hawaii, and Germany.

After securing a position at Eastern Michigan University, Gigi married again. She thought she had it made, but soon found herself facing a third divorce along with a growing alcohol and marijuana problem. Her chronic worry, substance abuse, and relationship failures brought her life to a screeching halt.

Since then, Gigi has applied strategies from recovery, therapy, and a variety of scientific and spiritual approaches to overcome her addictions and self-defeating patterns. She’s now a pillar of the recovery community and an award-winning educator and author. Gigi’s retreats, workshops, and presentations have helped thousands of people thrive in their work and homes.

In February 2018, Gigi put everything she’s learned into “50 Ways to Worry Less Now: Reject Negative Thinking to Find Peace, Clarity, and Connection.” The book won the Indie Excellence Award, is rated 5 stars on Amazon, and received rave reviews from Publisher’s Weekly, Library Journal, and Midwest Book Review.

Gigi lives happily in Michigan with her fourth husband (of 30 years) and her cat, Murphy. She loves to write, read historical novels, play golf, and support women’s growth.

Worry Less Now

Do you want to stop dreading the future or reliving past disappointments?

Thirty years ago, Gigi Langer was a prisoner of her worries who used alcohol, romance, and professional accomplishments to soothe her frayed nerves. When she stopped drinking, she began applying tools from therapy, recovery pro­grams, scientific research, and a variety of philosophical and spiritual teachings to overcome her anxieties and stress.

Worry Less Now offers four life strategies and 50 eclectic tools to dissolve the whispered lies of negative self-talk. Although many books address negative thinking, very few give the reader step-by-step directions on how to defeat it. Others simply advocate a single approach.

With candor and humor, Langer describes a wide variety of strategies that helped her and others defeat dysfunctional relationships, perfectionism, addiction, and worry about loved ones. As an award-winning writer and professor, Langer skillfully shares compelling stories and exercises that empower readers to:

-MANAGE life’s most difficult challenges with calm wisdom
-CREATE relationships that blossom and thrive
-FULFILL your dreams without limitations
-SERVE others in their personal growth

Regardless of the situation, you’ll be able to gain peace, clarity, and wisdom.
