How many times have you heard that - “We live in a fast-paced world?” Yet, in many ways we set that pace for ourselves. We like to do things quickly.

Monica is author of the book I Never Thought of It That Way: How to Have Fearlessly Curious Conversations in Dangerously Divided Times (https://amzn.to/3LcQK7i)

Ellen is a psychiatrist and author of the book The Anatomy of Anxiety (https://amzn.to/3863pKp)
