Thanks to technology, we live in a world that’s much morecomfortable than ever before. But here’s the paradox: our tolerance fordiscomfort is at an all-time low. And as we wrestle with a sinking “discomfortthreshold,” we increasingly find ourselves at the mercy of our primitiveinstincts and reactions that can perpetuate disease, dysfunction, and impair performanceand decision making. Designed to keep us out of danger, our limbic brain’ssurvival instinct controls what we intuitively do to avert injury or death,such as running out of a burning building. Rarely are we required to recruitthis instinct today because seldom do we find ourselves in situations that aretruly life-threatening. However, this part of our brain is programmed tonaturally and automatically react to even the most benign forms of discomfortand stress as serious threats to our survival. In this seminal audiobook, we learn how the survival instinctis the culprit that triggers a person to overeat, prevents the insomniac fromsleeping, causes the executive to unravel under pressure, leads travelers toavoid planes or freeways, inflames pain, and due to past heartache, closes downan individual to love. In all of these cases, the person’s overly-sensitive survivalinstinct is being called into action at the slightest hint of discomfort. Inshort, the survival instinct is stuck in the “on” position … with graveconsequences. Your Survival IsKilling You can transform the way you live. Provocative, eye-opening, andsurprisingly practical with its gallery of strategies and ideas, this audiobookwill show you how to build up your “instinctual muscles” for successfullymanaging discomfort while taming your overly reactive survival instinct. Youwill learn that the management of discomfort is the single most important skillfor the twenty-first century. This audiobook is, at its heart, a modern guideto survival.
