Resilience isn’t something we’re innately born with; it’s something we develop over time. In her new book, Worth the Risk: How to Microdose Bravery to Grow Resilience, Connect More, and Offer Yourself to the World, author and behavioral science researcher Kristen Lee shares how bravery is a process that we can undergo with intention. By engaging in strategic risk-taking and using small, intentional acts of courage, we can build resilience, confidence, and connection.
