Can anxiety be good for you? TIME magazine editor on how to harness that knot in your stomach for good

Americans are a stressed out bunch. As TIME magazine writer Alice Park aptly put it: "If America were a person it would have a tension headache."

We worry about our shrinking paychecks, our longer hours at work, our growing medical bills – and Washington's inability to help us with any of these problems. But anxiety doesn't always have to be a bad thing. If anxiety is channeled properly, it can motivate us to accomplish amazing things.

Alina Cho speaks with Jeffrey Klueger, senior editor for TIME Magazine, to discuss why Americans are more stressed than ever – and how we can use that anxiety to our advantage.
