We live in an age of anxiety. Like an omnipresent yet invisible odour you've grown used to, anxiety has become a constant condition and a distraction that undermines our quality of life. World-renowned neuroscientist, Dr Wendy Suzuki, will show us that science tells us a very different story: yes, anxiety is unpleasant - it's meant to be - and in the debilitating extreme, what Wendy will call 'bad anxiety', it's destructive. But most of the anxiety that humans feel is essential - not only to survival, but for higher brain functions formerly thought to be put on hold during anxious moments. Supported by her revolutionary research, Wendy will provide us with the neuroscience-based hacks for harnessing anxiety and facing it head-on. The first will help address and calm anxiety so that you can enjoy the productivity you will experience, and the second will enable readers to channel anxious feelings into six uses for good anxiety - from productivity, increased emotional intelligence and focus to creativity and confidence.
Wendy will teach us how to flip anxiety on its head - offering a counterintuitive lens through which to understand how anxiety manifests in our everyday lives. The book will introduce a taboo breaking slant on anxiety - that once we learn how to play it at its own game, it can become our superpower!
Dr Wendy Suzuki, is currently a Professor of Neural Science and Psychology at New York University, as well as a bestselling author, storyteller and a fitness instructor. Her TED Talk has reached over 3 million views across the globe.
