“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. Their energy is wasted even though they may have an excess of it. If 'high energy' people learnt to harness their energy to go beyond reactive responses to modes of intuition, creativity, and emotional resilience, they would achieve even more by doing less and be happier and healthier. This book offers the tools they need." —Dr. Deepak Chopra, MD, New York Times bestselling author of The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success

"The reason I picked up Nervous Energy out of all the books on the shelf is because I saw the cover and it said "Nervous Energy". That's what I feel a lot of times before a hockey game, is a very nervous energy. You're excited, you're anxious, you're ready to go, but at the same time if you don't know how to put that energy in the right spot, then you end up letting that control your emotions rather than helping you ... How can I get myself to a state where I can use that anxious, nervous energy into a positive? Thank you for writing this book!"
