Drew beautifully explains the importance of slowing down in regards to stress and anxiety management. Seven Percent Slower had me in stitches whilst also giving me many “aha” moments.

Kimberley Quinlan, LMFT

Drew’s suggestion of taking things Seven Percent Slower is perfect. It’s a concept taken from the
abstract and a helpful reminder that we don’t need to fervently writhe in our scary
exposures, but learn to take a breath and lean towards what our non-anxious selves would
do. This is where the magic happens.

Josh Fletcher / @AnxietyJosh

Seven Percent Slower has changed my life. Over the last year, I have slowed my thoughts. I have slowed my mind. And ultimately my panic attacks have slowed too. By quantifying slowing down, Drew takes an overwhelming concept and makes it manageable. We can all slow down by seven percent!

Selected Quotes From Seven Percent Slower

Speeding up kept primitive man alive. Speeding up keeps modern man stuck in a cycle of thread scanning, false alarms, fear, stress, and anxiety.

Chapter 2

Engaging in human zoomies is the opposite of calming your hyperactive threat response. It is like feeding it a steady diet of caffeine, sugar, and crystal meth.

Chapter 3

When you disobey your lizard brain's demand for speed, when you choose to slow down instead, you are responding to that demand with language that your fear center can understand. You are speaking its language - the language of behavior and action and experience.

Chapter 6

Slowing down means putting the brakes on your accidental emergency multitasking.

Chapter 7

When we accept that which we can not control, we master that which we can.
