Laugh in the Face of Anxiety
Anxiety occasionally visits us all. When we give an important presentation, take a test, go on a first date or walk down a dark alley our minds and bodies naturally respond by going on high alert and attuning to the potential dangers and risks of these endeavors.

But an excessive amount of anxiety can increase our risk of suffering negative consequences. The millions of people who suffer from social anxiety disorder, panic disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder...

“Most people who feel trapped by shyness or social anxiety will settle with the status quo and never seek help, be it from a knowledgeable therapist or from finding a scientifically based self-guided program and tackling it on their own,” writes Dr. Eric Goodman. Instead, social anxiety becomes a sort of silent suffering that is endured for years, coloring the way we think, interact, and feel when around other people. Yet, the idea that social anxiety is a disease that needs to be cured is just one of the many myths that often keeps us from getting help. In his new book, Social Courage: Coping and Thriving...
