"Practical. Friendly. Funny. As usual, Joanna knocks it out of the park with sound advice that you can actually use!"-Drew Linsalata, author of The Anxious Truth and Seven Percent Slower
"Life has its ways of stressing us all out. In Just Do Nothing, Joanna Hardis helps us change our agenda from one of fruitlessly fighting the discomfort to one of leaning into it and relating to it better. Her amazing book takes scientifically proven cognitive-behavioral therapy strategies and blends them with her own wit, humor, illustrative case examples, and useful experiential exercises (and even a few f-bombs). You will definitely enjoy her entertaining and creative writing-but more importantly, you will benefit from Joanna's knowledge and expertise."-Jon Abramowitz, PhD Professor of Psychology at University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
"I get annoyed reading books that I wish I had written, so I am really annoyed writing this blurb, because this is the book I would have written had I followed the advice in the book. This book will now be assigned to all of my new patients as they embark on their therapy journey, and it will provide them the intellectual basis they need along with the exercises required to make the desired changes in their lives. I will just tell them that I was the muse for the book and work on accepting that lie until I believe it. A MUST READ for anyone getting started on working themselves through their stress and anxiety."-Patrick B. McGrath, PhD, Chief Clinical Officer, NOCD

"Hardis argues that although many of us know what to do when life gets hard, how to actually do it confounds people-and that 'toxic positivity' and inspirational quotes don't cut it. Just Do Nothing makes the case that healing and lasting change come from learning to tolerate the discomfort of feelings and differentiating between 'I can't' and 'I can't yet.'"

"Sweet and to the point, Just Do Nothing author Joanna Hardis combines personal anecdotes with her skills as a professional therapist to help readers lay new neurological pathways to allow for lasting change....Just Do Nothing is a book that can help anyone in any stage of life. The chapters are short but packed with valuable information that will make readers think about the choices they make and help them analyze their own behavior, habits, and feelings."
