The roots of our anxiety, stress, and pain may feel complicated, but healing doesn't have to be. Hala Khouri takes us on a journey to investigate our personal habits, transform what doesn't serve us, and build more deeply connected lives-even amidst chaos. Khouri helps us understand how anxiety works in the body and shares practical strategies to better understand our body's signals, release stress, and stay present with discomfort. From healing trauma to understanding technology, each chapter shares relatable stories, practices, and tools to help us find more peace and work for good in our own lives and the lives of others.
