HOW DARING GREATLY CALMS ME DOWN

I’ve been feeling stressed and overwhelmed lately. Strangely enough, listening to Brene Brown’s book Daring Greatly on audiobook really helps me to unclench those stress muscles. There is a magical collaboration that takes place between the written content and reader’s vocal delivery that just hits the spot. Also, the book is good. 
I don’t think I can add anything that hasn’t been said already and better, such as by Braid Creative where I got that pic. What I will say is this: the audiobook relieves some of the burden of stress by putting emotion in context. Brown talks a lot about vulnerability, and in doing so she gives it a purpose. You are no longer swimming aimlessly in a sea of discomfort and anxiety, but moving towards a goal. That knowledge, and the repetition of that knowledge, sends a series of neural signals to the part of the brain specifically geared to relax.
