Harnessing the Power of Stress & Anxiety | Dr. Wendy Suzuki


Do you recall the feeling of fear, dread, or uneasiness, often accompanied by sweating, restlessness, and a rapid heartbeat? If your brain said, “yes” to that, then you, my friend, have been a victim of anxiety.

Dr. Wendy Suzuki is an award-winning professor of neuroscience and psychology at New York University where she studies the effects of physical activity and meditation on the brain. She is a passionate thought leader spreading the understanding of how we can use the principles of brain plasticity to maximize our brain’s performance and transform our lives for the better.

Besides being a TED speaker, Dr. Wendy is also a best-selling author for her book, Healthy Brain, Happy Life. It is like a personal program to activate your brain and do everything better, which has also been made into a PBS special. Her latest book, Good Anxiety: Harnessing the Power of the Most Misunderstood Emotion, is now out in the stands for you guys to check out.
