Description

World-renowned neuroscientist, Wendy Suzuki, explains how to harness the power of anxiety to your advantage - to think better, feel better and DO better.

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 wellbeing? What if, instead of seeing anxiety as a curse, we could recognize it for the unique gift that it is?

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 vulnerability. If we simply approach it as something to avoid, get rid of, or dampen, we actually miss an opportunity to improve our lives. Listening to our anxieties from a place of curiosity, and without fear, can actually guide us onto a path that leads to joy.

Drawing on her own experiences and based on the latest cutting-edge research, Dr Suzuki has developed an inspiring guide that shows us how to turn anxiety on its head!


"Anxiety isn't a weakness-it's your brain telling you that it's time for a change. And in this incredibly insightful book, Dr. Wendy Suzuki breaks down the exact whats, whys, and hows to flipping your perspective, and turning anxiety into the secret weapon you can use to get the life you want. She will transform your kryptonite into your super power!" -- Lisa Bilyeu, co-founder of Impact Theory
