If someone or something makes us intimidated, we get clammy hands and racing hearts. But success can only come when you stop making the decision to avoid situations where you feel uncomfortable, and decide to open up to them instead. According to Todd Kashdan, psychology professor and author of Curious? Discover the Missing Ingredient To A Fulfilling Life, you can use curiosity as a way to counter anxiety so you can become the person you were meant to be.

How to Stop Anxiety and Depression Without Medications
Essentialism is a movement whose time has come. In a pleasantly sincere New York accent, Kashdan takes on the "multi-billion dollar" happiness empire of mega-churches, psychology, and, yes, self-help books and websites aimed at that universal goal. The key to happiness, says Kashdan, is not in trying to continually move the happiness meter one notch up but in fostering curiosity and embracing uncertainty. Kashdan is a PhD in psychology and has written numerous articles and lectures on positive psychology.
Using science, a bit of philosophy, and a lot of charm, Kashdan seeks to make you so curious you will become happy too. That's the image many people conjure up when you mention curiosity. An image perpetuated by a dusty old proverb that has long represented the extent of our understanding of the term. This book might not put the proverb to rest, but it will flip it upside down: Todd Kashdan offers a profound new message missing from so many books on happiness: They happen when we are mindful, when we explore what's novel, and when we live in the moment and embrace uncertainty.
Positive events last longer and we can extract more pleasure and meaning from them when we are open to new experiences and relish the unknown. Kashdan uses science, story, and practical exercises to show you how to become what he calls a curious explorer - a person who's comfortable with risk and challenge and who functions optimally in an unstable, unpredictable world.
Here's a blueprint for building lasting, meaningful relationships, improving health, increasing creativity, and boosting productivity. Aren't you curious to know more?
When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio. What made the experience of listening to Curious?
I never review books. I am writing here because I think the thesis this book raises is quite important. I have finished listening to it.
My expectation was a solid scientific work, with little wish-washy stories. Yes, it has some research-based claims.
And the argument that. This isnt one of those phony self-help books where you dont know if they will work.
