The Myth of Stress : Where Stress Really Comes from and How to Live a Happier, Healthier Life
Andrew J Bernstein reveals the truth about stress - where it really comes from, why we've misunderstood it, and a new, more effective way to eliminate it at its source. He argues that the issues that stress people out differ, but that the basic dynamics of stress do not. Yet these have been misunderstood for more than half a century. As a result, almost everyone is confused about where stress actually comes from, with disastrous consequences affecting our health, happiness and our ability to handle change. In this book, he argues that stress is not a physical process with a psychological component, as previously believed, but a psychological process with a physical component. In other words, stress doesn't come from what is going on in your life - it comes from your thoughts about what is going on in your life. Your job isn't stressful,for example, it's your thoughts about your job that are stressful and so on. All stress is an inside job, a result of subconscious assumptions. By using the specially developed techniques in this book and by addressing stress at its source, there is nothing you can't transform.
