Anxiety and stress are the number one epidemic of modern civilization. Frequently, stressed people find themselves at the pinnacle of success at the cost of unhappy lives, fractured relationships, and unhealthy bodies.... This book offers the tools they need." —Dr. Deepak Chopra, MD, New York Times bestselling author of The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success

Learn how to overcome anxiety by transforming it from an obstacle into an advantage.

Nervous energy is something many of us are familiar with—it’s the urge to double check our work, to create a tidy strategy for an overwhelming goal, or make a to-do list and tick every box neatly. But when work and life become more complex and unpredictable, when there isn’t a straightforward to-do list or clear step by step solution, this nervous energy can spiral into anxiety and stress, becoming a roadblock to success.

Instead of merely trying to overcome anxiety, Dr. Chloe Carmichael uses a combination of storytelling and step-by-step directions to share nine powerful tools thato help you harness this energy in a productive way. Based on her years of experience helping patients change their anxiety from a setback into an advantage,
Nervous Energy offers:

- A breakdown of three common nervous energy profiles

- Step-by-step directions for implementing each of the nine tools in your life

- Exercises, charts, and worksheets

- Real-life stories and examples of people overcoming anxiety with these tools

A must read for anyone feeling trapped by stress and anxiety, Nervous Energy is a practical guide to transforming anxiety and nervous energy into a powerful positive force.
