From a global pandemic, to political divisions and climate change, the past year and a half has been stressful. It’s no wonder so many of us are dealing with feelings of unease and even panic. — In fact, even prior to the pandemic, an estimated 90 percent of the population is affected by some degree of anxiety. For most of us, it would be difficult to describe anxiety as a good feeling. But what if it could be? What if we could work with our anxiety rather than against it and use it to be more productive, more optimistic, more creative, and ultimately more resilient? World - renowned neuroscientist Dr. Wendy Suzuki has found a way to unlock the potential of anxiety to be a benefit instead of a drawback and reveals that anxiety is not only essential for our survival but also a key component of our ability to live optimally. Drawing from Suzuki’s personal experience with anxiety and cutting-edge neuroscience research, her new book "GOOD ANXIETY: Harnessing the Power of the Most Misunderstood Emotion" helps us understand how simple but powerful shifts in mindset and tangible, practical strategies can help us transform our social anxiety, fear of performance, or fear of public speaking into positive and empowering assets.
