The Most Effective Ways to Manage Stress & Anxiety


When you think about anxiety, your mind might go straight to a negative place. Maybe you personally experience anxiety on a regular basis, and it’s been an obstacle you’re still struggling to overcome. Maybe there have been points in your life when anxiety got in the way of your happiness, caused crippling overwhelm, or “analysis paralysis”. 

No matter what your relationship with anxiety is, the good news is that there are proven ways for you to handle, reduce, and overcome it. Since I launched The School of Greatness, I’ve met SO many incredibly gifted and talented people who’ve experienced various levels of anxiety and still come out on top in their personal and professional lives. I want you to know that you’re NOT alone.

That’s why I’m pumped for my SOG guest today! She literally wrote the book on what “good anxiety” is, and how we can all reframe the emotion and even tap into it for long-term success. If you’re someone who struggles with anxiety, or know someone who does, then I encourage you to listen to this episode and share it with them. It might be the exact thing they need to hear. 

Please help me welcome the great, Dr. Wendy Suzuki, to The School of Greatness!

"Uncertainty is the root of most anxiety." @wasuzuki  

Dr. Wendy Suzuki is an award-winning Professor of Neural Science and Psychology at New York University where she studies the effects of physical activity and meditation on the brain.  She is also a TED speaker and best-selling author of the book, Healthy Brain, Happy Life that was recently made into a PBS special. Her second book, Good Anxiety: Harnessing the Power of the Most Misunderstood Emotion will be published in September of 2021.  Suzuki 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.

It’s great to see mental health starting to become as important as physical health is in the eyes of so many. Without a sound mind, achieving our goals in business, life, and in our relationships will be that much harder. If you want to learn more about how to manage your anxiety from one of the world’s leading experts on the topic, then this episode is for you! Join me for Episode 1,160 of The School of Greatness!
