Get Out of the Red Zone

Transform Your Stress and Optimize True Success™

The “Red Zone” isn’t a place. It’s a head space. One you don’t want to hang out in.

You are in the Red Zone when you experience high levels of stress, or what psychologists call distress. When you’re experiencing
intense/heightened emotions you don’t want—like sadness, anxiety, fear, anger, irritability, guilt, shame, helplessness, or hopelessness—you’re in the Red Zone. And it’s stealing your well-being, fulfillment, and joy. 

In Dr. E’s latest and most popular book, she shares actionable strategies individuals and teams can use to:


  • Reset your response to intense, stressful situations

  • Lean into your passions, turning enthusiasm into fuel

  • Optimize stress and use it to your advantage

  • Shift from negative thinking to a growth mindset
