In Good Anxiety, Bad Anxiety, Dr. Wendy Suzuki—a Professor of Neural Science and Psychology—uses new and established neuroscience to help you harness your fears to feel better, think better, and do better. There are about 40 million people—or 18 percent of the population—suffering from clinical anxiety disorders today. However, formal diagnoses merely scratch the surface of anxiety’s impact. Hundreds of millions suffer from everyday, low-level, non-clinical anxiety. Popular science suggests that this persistent, low-level anxiety is detrimental to our health, performance, and well-being. But what if our preoccupation with avoiding anxiety is costing us something? What if we could learn how to harness the brain activation underlying our anxiety and make it work for us, turning it into superpowers? In Good Anxiety, Bad Anxiety, Dr. Wendy Suzuki unpacks the cutting-edge science that will help you channel their anxiety for positive outcomes. This shift from bad to good anxiety accelerates focus and productivity, boosts performance, creates compassion, and fosters more creativity. These are some of the superpowers that come from learning how to channel good anxiety, making it infinitely more valuable than bad anxiety or even no anxiety at all. Accessible, insightful, and life-changing, Good Anxiety, Bad Anxiety will transform our understanding and experience of everyday anxiety forever.
