Good Anxiety: Harnessing the Power of the Most Misunderstood Emotion

by Wendy Suzuki Author

New York University professor of Neural Science and Psychology, Dr. Wendy Suzuki, comes back with another work to shift the narrative of on the emotion we often attempt to avoid: anxiety. Almost a literal attempt to change the narrative, Suzuki explains that the avoidance of our anxieties often results in us not confronting our problems head on, reminding us that there’s been evolutionary reasons we’ve developed this emotion. The avoidance, rationalization, or attempts to dampen the feeling often make us miss the opportunity to resolve the feelings and move on or find alternatives to the situations that give us anxiety in the first place.
