If the news has you feeling anxious or outraged, you're not alone. There is a name for this: emotional inflammation. With Emotional Inflammation, you'll discover a breakthrough plan for dealing with this modern affliction. General and forensic psychiatrist Dr. Lise Van Susteren joins health journalist Stacey Colino to present a program called RESTORE, which will help you discover your "reactor type" for emotional inflammation and show you how to become more grounded and resilient in turbulent times. One of the main causes of emotional inflammation is our sense that the big issues--like climate change, gun violence, and political corruption--are beyond our control. With RESTORE, you'll learn you have more power than you realize. With strategies for relieving stress, critical thinking, recovering inner composure, and reclaiming the gifts of nature, you'll learn to transform your distress into steady calm and strength. As you move from a state of emotional whiplash into greater balance and harmony, you can redirect your energy, manage your feelings, and cultivate healthier habits. Ultimately, you'll learn to become an "upstander"--a force for improving the conditions that fuel your fears. With a relatable style and a heaping dose of hope, Emotional Inflammation is a timely antidote for a world in turmoil.
