Feeling anxious or stressed out? You’re not alone as over 40% of the US population has been officially diagnosed with anxiety or depression disorders--up from only 8% pre-COVID-19. To find out how to thrive amidst adversity, join Dr. Leo Flanagan as he discusses his new book: Thriving in Thin Air: Developing Resilience in Challenging Times.
Based on neuroscience, Dr. Flanagan shares tangible suggestions for how we can rewire our brains to reduce anxiety and improve our emotional health--including recommendations for focus, pragmatic optimism, and empathy.
For more information, you can read his blog here or an article he coauthored, COVID-19 Reset & Recovery: Developing Resilience to Move Through Uncertainty to New Beginnings. Dr. Flanagan is a Distinguished Principal Research Fellow here at The Conference Board and the founder and president of The Center For Resilience.
