Outwitting Stress : A Practical Guide to Conquering Stress Before You Crack
It's a fact of modern-day life: No one lives without stress. In a whirlwind world of increasing work expectations, family obligations, financial strains and chronic shortages of time, stressful situations seem to lurk at every turn. Dual-income families juggle time, children and money in a never-ending high-wire act, and responsibilities for both young children and aging parents can put a tremendous strain on even the most calm and stable among us. Consider these facts: high divorce rate, heart disease, large numbers of people treated for depression and job stress estimated to cost industry billions annually. There is an increasing need to overcome these modern day problems and "Outwitting Stress" should help you do just that. Creative ideas have been culled form experts in many fields, from CEOs, attorneys and service-industry specialists, from parents and grandparents, athletes, and marriage therapists, psychologists, coaches, bosses, clergy and cops.
