Publisher's Summary

The world-renowned neuroscientist and author of Healthy Brain, Happy Life has developed an “absolute game-changer” (Conscious Conversations Podcast) for managing unwarranted anxiety and turning it into a powerful asset.

We are living in the age of anxiety, a situation that often makes us feel as if we are locked into an endless cycle of stress, sleeplessness, and worry. But what if we had a way to leverage our anxiety to help us solve problems and fortify our well-being? What if, instead of seeing anxiety as a curse, we could recognize it for the unique gift that it is?

As a neuroscientist, Dr. Wendy Suzuki has discovered a paradigm-shifting truth about anxiety: Yes, it is uncomfortable, but it is also essential for our survival. In fact, anxiety is a key component of our ability to live optimally. Every emotion we experience has an evolutionary purpose, and anxiety is designed to draw our attention to a number of negative emotions. If we simply approach anxiety as something to avoid, get rid of, or dampen, we actually miss an opportunity to not only manage the symptoms of anxiety better but also discover ways to improve our lives. Listening to our worries from a place of curiosity, instead of fear, can actually guide us onto a path that leads to joy.

“Suzuki draws on decades of neuroscience, including her own research, and leavens her learning with a little personal storytelling to create a practical, science-backed guidebook for those seeking such a transformation.” (The Wall Street Journal)

Waste of money

Why does the author write a book on anxiety when she has nothing new or insightful to offer? It's a waste of everyone's time.

good info but drawn out.

with the average person, it was hard to finish. if you are a science major then you would have more interest. some good thoughts were shared.
