Calming Anxiety to Achieve Peak Performance

In this audio-only course, Dr. Luana Marques shares strategies from cognitive behavioral therapy to help you face anxiety and fears head-on. Luana shows you how to use the ladder approach to conquer your fears by starting small and working your way up to more difficult challenges. She explains that a moderate amount of anxiety helps us achieve peak performance. Luana also emphasizes that anxiety is biologically adaptive, up to a certain point. Beyond that point, it can prevent us from taking risks. Luana goes over how to balance your thoughts during anxiety-inducing situations. She also encourages you to manage your stress by limiting how often you read the news. Luana emphasizes that self-care is no longer optional, and above all else, she advocates reaching out to the people around you and staying connected.
